You want to be the very best, like no one ever was, and also get PAID doing it?!
Well, it looks like there might be a market for you, Perezcious readers! Pok├â┬⌐mon Go has become tremendously popular since its release last week, so we aren’t surprised people would want to make money to play the addicting game!
In case you didn’t know, you need to walk around IRL in order to catch as many Pok├â┬⌐mon as possible in the addicting app. But, this can be hard to do if you spend most of your day working in an office or sitting in school.
So, one genius Pok├â┬⌐Fan decided to sell her services as a top-notch trainer to those who don’t have the time to get out there and catch ’em all on their own!
Ivy St. Ives placed a Craigslist ad on Tuesday, offering to be a “professional Pok├â┬⌐mon Go trainer”… for a price!
The 24-year-old wants $20 an hour to be the very best on someone else’s behalf, but details how she’d use their Pok├â┬⌐mon Go login information to the best of her abilities, writing:
“My services are simple: I will walk around in 1-4 hour shifts signed in to your account capturing every single Pok├â┬⌐mon I come into contact with, activating every Poke Stop I pass and walking nonstop to help hatch your eggs. I’ll even send you hourly updates while you’re at work/class/on a hot date informing you of any really exciting things I’ve come across for you. Pok├â┬⌐mon training help, gym battles and strategy tips are also included, if requested.”
Given the incredible obsession people have with this game, we wouldn’t be surprised if someone actually shelled out that kind of money to get ahead in the Pok├â┬⌐World!
However, it does seem to take away some of the fun, which involves actually getting out there and filling up your Pok├â┬⌐dex yourself.
But, the freelance journalist does seem to have a solution for that, adding:
“I know what I’m doing.. I will catch them all. I will focus in on catching specific types of Pok├â┬⌐mon (i.e. fire, water, electric) if you want. I’ll even send you silly screenshots so you don’t feel too much FOMO while you’re doing something that prevents you from accessing PokeWorld.”
However, considering Pok├â┬⌐mon Go users have already been the targets of armed robbery, the NYU alum is confirming customers’ identities before agreeing to work with them, saying:
“No creepy stuff. I know how to defend myself and will not take any bullsh*t from you.”
Could Pok├â┬⌐mon Go actually launch a viable new career option?! Let us know what U think in the comments!
