All hail the Pokémon Go master.

A US Reddit user has just become the first reported player to catch 'em all after completing the North American Pokedéx.

User ftb_hodor has reached expert level on the game after catching every Pokémon currently available in the United States.

He caught a total of 142 Pokémon to complete the Pokedéx, admitting he had to do a lot of walking to finish the game.


The New York City-based Level 31 trainer revealed he walked 153.2km (95.1 miles) while hunting Pokémon, catching a total of 4,269 Pokémon and hatching 303 eggs along the way.

There are a few caveats to his impressive achievement, however, with the player still missing some Pokémon that are not currently available in America.

The nine elusive Pokémon include Ditto, Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, Mewtwo and Mew, with no information currently on if they are even available in the game.

He also hasn't caught three Pokémon which are only available in their regions, they include Farfetch'd (only available in Asia), Kangaskhan (Australia and New Zeland) and Mr. Mime (exclusive to Europe).

"I already booked my flights to Europe and Asia," he joked.

"Just kidding, I have no plans to go after region locked ones. I believe they're truly region locked."

He also called for the game to be improved for players in rural areas, explaining: "When I went to a rural area for [the] weekend Pokémon were incredibly hard to find until I got to a hotspot in one town.

"It's a shame the game doesn't work there as it would be so much fun to actually be able to explore outside the city with this game." (Read our guides to pokemon gyms, eggs and items.)

He added: "I agree that game needs to be much better in rural areas. Such a shame that it isn't as it would be awesome to explore outside of cities."

Meanwhile, Pokémon Go masters are selling their accounts for thousands of pounds on eBay.

The Pokémon Go craze has gone global since the launch of the game on July 6, with stories about gamers and unusual incidents sweeping the web.

A homeowner seemingly fed-up with gamers intruding on private property left a note for players telling them to "Get a life and stay out of my yard".

Meanwhile, a player searching for Pokémon at 3am has revealed how he was caught up in a 'drug deal' mix-up.

Here are 12 awkward places Pokémon really shouldn't have turned up.

Playing Tips

• Not tempted by Squirtle, Charmander or Bulbasaur when you sign into the game for the first time? Walk away from them (you'll need to actually walk) and a Pikachu will appear

• Make life easier by turning off "AR" when catching Pokémon, which will switch off your camera, saving battery life

• You can also turn on "Battery Saver" in the app's settings, which will darken your screen when it's not in use

• Pay attention to the box at the bottom right of the screen, which will tell you which Pokémon can be found nearby

• Tap that box to bring up all the Pokémon in the area, and tap one of them again to track a specific critter
