This person in Richmond wants to be your personal Pokémon GO chauffeur

Jul 13 2016, 1:51 am

Poké-mania has taken hold of Vancouver, and it seems some ridiculous enterprising people are looking to make a buck from the craze.

Someone in Richmond has posted a Craigslist ad offering their services as a personal Pokémon chauffeur. They will drive you around town for the low, low price of $25 an hour in their “sleek red” Scion FR-S.

If you want to bring a friend along, you’ll have to tack on another five bucks an hour, though.

“This is your PokeHack for that PokeAdvantage,” reads the ad.

Daily Hive reached out to the person who posted the ad, but hadn’t heard back at the time of publication.

The reignited obsession with Pokémon has certainly hit Vancouver in a major way. Even though the game isn’t technically available in Canada yet, people have managed to find ways to download it. Here’s a little example of people gathered just around the corner from the Daily Hive offices playing the game:
