Walking an average of eight miles a day and spending up to eight hours trekking around New York after finishing work is the kind of dedication it takes to truly catch em all.

Nick Johnson posted on reddit claiming to be the first person in America to capture all the Pokemon available in the country, and sat down with Business Insider to explain how he did it.

Johnson said he caught 4,269 Pokemon in his bid to catch the 142 different types available in America, and we re willing to bet about a third of those were Pidgeys.

On top of that Johnson hatched 303 himself and walked nearly 95 miles, as well as hiring an Uber and demanding it drive him around Jersey City until he found his second last Pokemon, Porygon.

Now Johnson s looking for sponsors to support his trip to Europe, New Zealand, Australia or Asia so he can catch Mr Mime, Kangaskhan, and Farfetch d, none of which are available in America.

Ditto, Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, Mewtwo and Mew are also still at large.
