Pokémon GO casual walk leads to encounter with pro player boasting 1.2 billion XP, 250,000+ battles won, and 500,000+ catches

Trainers, we recently stumbled upon a fascinating thread on the Pokémon GO subreddit that we couldn’t help but share with you all. Sometimes, the best stories are the ones that happen when we least expect them. And trust us, this one by u/Prestigious_Care3042 is a jaw-dropper.

So, here’s the rundown. u/Prestigious_Care3042 was out and about, enjoying a walk while nabbing some Pokémon. They mentioned to their walking buddy how their phone battery was running low. Just then, a kind passerby walking their dog overheard them and offered a portable power pack. Not only did they provide some much-needed juice for the phone but also decided to join the walk.

But here comes the kicker. Upon exchanging friend codes and checking out the stats, u/Prestigious_Care3042 was absolutely floored. The friendly stranger turned out to be a Pokémon GO wizard with a staggering 17,500 km walked, 254,000 battles won, 568,000 Pokémon caught, and a whopping 1.2 billion XP. Talk about hardcore!

Absolutely shocked.

Hey there, I'm Dejan! Let me take you through my life, where family, gaming, and CrossFit play prominent roles. Since day one, I've been surrounded by the love and support of my family. Growing up, every moment spent with my parents and siblings was filled with warmth and laughter, creating memories I hold dear. As a parent now, I've experienced a whole new level of love and responsibility. My two wonderful kids bring endless joy and a sense of purpose to my life. In the digital realm, I found my passion - gaming. Whether I'm conquering the world of Apex Legends or embarking on adventures in Pokemon Go, gaming fuels my sense of adventure and competition. Beyond the virtual world, I discovered the exhilaration of CrossFit. The challenging workouts, camaraderie with fellow fitness enthusiasts, and constant drive to push my limits have become an integral part of my life. Balancing family time, gaming, and CrossFit has been a journey of self-discovery. Each passion complements the other, bringing fulfillment and joy to my daily routine.


  1. I’m suspicious of any player with those kind of stats. Normal players just don’t go that hard-core. Those kind of stats are usually reserved for streamers, who have played since 2016, or spoofers who have access to pokemon 24/7. There are exceptions, but I don’t drop jaws when I see stuff like that. And if it is legit then awesome, but I would question it if it were me.
