A man from Southampton, United Kingdom roughly lost around 13 kgs as he walked around 225 km across the country to catch all the Pokemon he could. He has become the first person in the UK who has caught all Pokemon Go characters and is now looking to catch even more.
Sam Clark posted a YouTube video which showcases all the characters he has caught while playing the game. He the founder of Cyberjam Gaming in Southampton and is an electrical engineer by profession.
He said to a local reporter “It’s been a long, old slog, I walked about five marathons, 225km, to do this. I have lost two stone, I can put on jeans that I haven’t worn for six years, the last time I tried I couldn’t get them over my legs.”
“I am not obsessive, I have a full-time job, I have a wife and four kids, it’s just fun. I didn’t do it for the kudos, I reached 100 and thought I would carry on to see if I could get all of them and I put up the video to see if I was the first in the country and it appears I am because no-one else has come forward.”
Sam in now busy organising events around his hometown and he was successful enough to bring 200 people together to play the game. Now that is some dedication to an app.
