If you were looking to be the first Pokemon Go trainer to capture all 142 Pokemon available in North America, this trending news might disappoint you. Brooklyn-based Nick Johnson, has publicly declared himself to be the first Pokemon Go player to capture 142 Pokemon. He's been talking up his accomplishment online and proud to be the first.
You might be thinking to yourself that this doesn't add up because everyone knows there is 151 total monsters. That's true, but several are international based and a half dozen Pokemon are completely unaccounted for.

This accomplishment is quite amazing. Considering that the game is only out for a few weeks, the chance to actually be on top shows dedication.
