39-year-old Katie Murphy has found plenty of Pokémon over the past month but is still yet to find her true self.
Murphy consistently hunts around 15 Pokémon a day and has even captured extremely rare Pokémon such as Mewtwo and Zapdos.
“The rarest Pokémon of all is that true inner self,” says Murphy.
Murphy is now fully invested in Pokémon Go and can relate to Pikachu more than her best friend Sara.
“It’s just easier to distract myself by finding imaginary monsters.”
Pokémon Go is gradually becoming Murphy’s reality – a place where she will never reach her full potential.
Murphy is now destined to drift passively through Pokémon Go levels without any sense of purpose.
