Have your say

Sam Clark, 32, has walked 225km and caught 1390 Pokemon in his quest to fill his Pokedex.

The Southampton resident has become the first person to catch all 142 Pokemon available in the UK - as well as an egg hatch of a US exclusive, Tauros. Sam credits Pokemon Go with helping him along his weight loss journey - something he has been struggling with for nearly ten years. He said: “The distance I have walked works out to be from Southampton to London and back. “It has helped me lose two stone - something I had been struggling with.
