Nick Johnson is the first person to announce that he’s caught all of the US-based Pokemon in Pokémon Go! Johnson said that he had to catch 4,269 Pokémon, hatch 303 and walk 95 miles in the just two weeks of the games release. After work, he would walk the city eight hours at a time. For his second-to-last Pokemon, Porygon, Nick Johnson needed an Uber drive around Jersey City. And despite this being absolutely absurd, Johnson tells Business Insider that “it was worth it to fulfill his childhood dream of catching ‘em all.”

But that's only half the story. The infamous and rare Farfetch’d, Kangaskhan, Mr. Mime, Ditto, Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, Mewtwo and Mew are still available in certain countries. According to USA Today, Marriott Rewards has offered to sponsor Johnson’s trip abroad to Europe, Japan and Australia to help him catch the rest of the Pokemon and complete his Pokédex.

So if anyone if looking for a travel sponsorship remember these rules. Thoughts?
