However, only 142 of them are available in the US and the location of the others cannot be known for sure.
Hence, he went on the search for Pokemon after his shift ended at 6:30 walking the path of Brooklyn and Manhattan. For his first Pokemon, he chose Water-type Squirtle as he didn't know that he had a choice. Mr. Johnson played the game until he passed out or couldn't walk anymore. According to his iPhone health app, he walked 8 miles a day.
According to him, he would have caught it a day earlier if the Verizon cell service has not been cut for 15 minutes.
"I may or may not have seen it on the radar and then ordered an Uber to drive me around until I found it," Johnson says.
The best advice he wants to give to the player is to buy a good pair of shoes, "Buy some good walking shoes." Another recommendation he makes is that in case you are willing to spend money on in-game items then egg incubators are your best bet. He also hopes that Niantic improves its game battle system and gyms to make the game much more fun. Nick will not stop playing the game.
