It's been just over two weeks since Pokemon Go launched and took the nation by storm, and now, one man has become the first player to "catch em all."

Nick Johnson, from Brooklyn, N.Y., declared himself the first player to catch all 142 Pokemon available in the U.S., according to Business Insider

The 28-year-old told Buzzfeed he spent about two weeks and walked an average of eight miles a day to catch them all. 

According to Buzzfeed, Johnson is only missing nine Pokemon. Of the nine, three are only available outside of the country and six have never been seen and are believed to be uncatchable.
