Gotta catch ‘em all! Matthew Sullivan did just that: he caught all 719 Pokémon, a project that started in his childhood and became an obsession as he got closer to his goal. He tells us how he did it, although only another gamer would understand.
Now I will say I love breeding pokémon and never shy away from breeding pokémon for other people — I'm doing that as you read this article - but collecting and hatching around 300 eggs can wear you down. Then the thought of evolving half of them was equally daunting but slowly, overtime, I got it done. With 820 minutes on the clock I had obtained all but a few pokémon. I was so close I could taste it and it was sweet!
Sullivan’s goal took almost two decades, and six generations of Pokémon. If you know something about Pokémon, you can read his story at Polygon.
