A woman in Singapore has become the first person in the world to get a job as a “Pokemon Master”.
Ivy Lim, aged 22, was selected from among thousands of candidates for the job, which was advertised by online marketplace Funzing.com earlier this month.
She will be paid $1,000 a month for at least three months to catch Pokemon, train others on a daily basis, teach secrets and tips, and host lure parties, walks, raves and experiences.
“I didn’t know that the job of Pokemon Master exists. I have always wanted to train alongside with friends to catch Pokemon in real life, just like in the Pokemon shows,” Lim said.
Want to know how third world countries continue to be third world countries? Paying random chicks $1000 a month to play an iPhone game. Ivy Lim is the luckiest girl in Singapore. $1000 in that country is like a bajillion dollars American. I googled it.
The craziest part about this story is that there are still people playing Pokemon Go. Not only are people still playing but they are paying to people to basically play the game for them. I’m just glad we live in a day and age where women can be Pokemon Masters. 2016 is a great year.
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you didn’t even know Singapore was a country until now. Also, go ahead and give Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on around here.
