Professional Pokemon Go Player - How to earn $20/hour playing 'Pokemon Go'.

Pokemon Go is the latest craze and the company is making over a million dollars per day with the app. That means there is a huge opportunity to tap into the video gaming industry. A 24-year-old New York woman, who on Tuesday a Craigslist ad offering her services as a $20-an-hour “Professional Pokemon GO trainer," is taking capitalism and Pokemon to a whole new level. “My services are simple: I will walk around in 1-4 hour shifts signed into 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,” the ad reads. “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.” In case you didn't know, Pokemon Go, is a hit app, released on July 6 that allows players to catch Pokemon creatures through AR - augmented reality- of their local surroundings. The prospective trainer says she’s an NYU grad who has been playing Pokemon since 1997. “I currently own an iPhone 6s, several portable chargers and am in very good physical fitness,” the ad says. “I will focus in on catching specific types of Pokemon (i.e. fire, water, electric) if you want. I’ll even send you silly screenshots so you don’t feel too much FOMO (fear of missing out) while you’re doing something that prevents you from accessing PokeWorld.” She also boasts: “I will catch them all.” So how do you become a professional Pokemon Go player? Simply, post an ad on Craigslist, set up a Pay Pal account, and watch the money fall from the sky. Related: What do you think? Share with us your thoughts in the comments below.
