Hiring Someone to Drive You Around Town While You Are Playing Pokemon Go

Pokemon Go, Nintendo's popular game that hit the market with a bang has indeed exceeded everyone's expectations.

This app which has an augmented reality them requires players to venture out into the real world and collect Pokemon creatures to advance through the game. This has led to a lot of Pokemon Go players to play this game even while driving.

An entrepreneur realized this opportunity and grabbed it. He started a business which offers Uber-style rides to wherever the destination you wanted to go.

This will save you the danger of "playing while driving", because a driver will do the driving for you, giving you your own space and time to collect those Pokemons.

This was posted as an ad in Craigslist. The ad says that this entrepreneur offers to your driver inside the Portland area.

He says that he is in charge in arriving at all PokeStops and Gyms that are in town. The service includes two hours of driving, together with a pair of snacks and beverages that is worth $30 per person.


That is a lot of money to spend just to play an app which is free. But as the saying goes, "You gotta catch 'em all."

Pokemon Go has proven to be dominant in the internet headlines. This hype even increased when it was released for iOS.

The app is very interesting because it is used to distract people who have nothing to do, or even lead a teenager to find a dead body in their neighborhood. There are even some Pokemon Go addicts that post signs on the back of their vehicles, warning the drivers at their back of the many stops that they will make because of them playing the game.

If this proves to be a successful hit on Craigslist, this would surely spread like wildfire. Soon, it would be possible that every Pokemon Go user want this man's driving service.
