Sponsored by Expedia ( https://www.expedia.com/ ), Nick is the first person to

travel around the world and successfully capture all regional-exclusive

Pokemon, including Mr. Mime in Paris, Farfetch'd in Hong Kong and, lastly,

Kangaskhan in Sydney. Of the 151 Pokemon in the game, Johnson caught all 142

characters available in the US within the first two weeks of the game's

release. His international efforts bring Johnson's total Pokemon tally to 145.

The remaining six are yet to be released. Johnson has caught a total of 5,000

Pokemon so far.

The Expedia Bear is traveling with him on his journey. Johnson and the Expedia

Bear have traveled to Tokyo to continue the adventure.

"We're delighted to have been able to help Nick live out his Pokemon dream and

travel far and wide to literally 'catch 'em all'. Nick's journey is an exciting

example of how Pokemon Go is turning gamers into travellers, redefining tourist

attractions and bringing together a whole community," said Georg Ruebensal,

Managing Director of Expedia Brand for Australia and New Zealand.

"The game is also encouraging people to become tourists in their own cities by

getting players outside and exploring local landmarks they may have not seen

before. Pokemon Go is now another way to travel, meet new people and explore

the world."

Highlights from his trip include:

    -- Catching Pokemon in Central Park, New York, the same time as Justin


    -- Losing 8-10 pounds (3-4 kilograms) in two weeks from all the walking

    -- Catching Pokemon underneath the Eiffel Tower (which is a big Pokemon


    -- Playing the game in front of the Sydney Opera House

    -- Not sleeping in Hong Kong in order to catch Farfetch'd
