A man who originally worked as a barista and bartender in New Zealand has quit his job to hunt Pokémon full-time. He’s currently relying on friends and family for money, but says that he’s also caught 91 of the 151 available Pokemon in the game so far. The best part, he says, is traveling around instead of having to go to work every day like the rest of us peons. “I get to walk around and explore towns I’ve never been to.” (via BBC)
