For Hire: Real Pokémon Trainer

Gotta catch 'em all but don't have time? Call on the services of Alicia Thomas, a professional Pokémon trainer--yes, professional. This is what she does for a living.

According to her Craiglist ad, if you pay her, Thomas will login to Pokémon GO with your account credentials and quickly collect many, high-quality Pokémon:

I will walk around in 1-4 hour shifts signed in to your account capturing every single Pokemon 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. Pokemon training help, gym battles and strategy tips are also included, if requested.

Thomas isn't just some random person with a phone. She's a Pokémon expert and is prepared to be the best trainer you've ever had:

Personally, I am a level 15 trainer in Pokemon GO right now and control all of the gyms near my place. […]

Details: I currently own an iPhone 6s, several portable chargers and am in very good physical fitness. Spending hours on my feet is not an issue.

I admire her entrepreneurial spirit. As the Ninth Rule of Acquisition says, "Opportunity plus instinct equals profit." Thomas's instincts guided her to an opportunity and she's seized it. I hope she makes a lot of money.

For their previous game, if you turn on "Allow Mock Locations," the game locks you out. There are still easy ways to spoof the gps, but you need a rooted phone so you can install software in a system directory. And you still have to deal with speed limits that would prevent you from going to many locations quickly.

At that point you're spending a lot of time playing a game that is about walking about by clicking on a map and waiting, as if it were the most boring Uber simulator. And despite how annoying spoofers can be, most can easily be ignored.

Unfortunately, she will quickly be replaced by Indians willing to do the job for a fraction the cost...

Also, under Android Developer Options is "Allow Mock Locations". You can feed your phone a list of GPS coordinates and the apps running won't know you aren't actually traveling to those locations.
