Pokemon GO has now spawned a thriving real life market where one can buy or sell Pokemon or Pokemon related services.
Similar to how you can buy accounts, gold, or weapons in MMORPGs, eBay is riddled with listings that will further your career as the very best. So now millions of people can not only waste time on Pokemon GO but hard cash as well.
One person had up, three Pokemon for under $1, as the description reads:
I will catch 3 Random characters if purchased between 8:00 GMT until 18:00 GMT Mon-Fri will usually take around 2 hours. Outside of these hours may take slightly longer, thank you! When purchasing please place account details in buyers notes section.
Simply message over your account details, and this Pokentrepreneur will log in and catch some ‘mon for you. Duplicates are a potential risk, but apparently the likes of Pidgey and Rattata will be avoided.
Similar services can get you 10 Pokemon for around $5, and there are even some that will head out to certain areas and catch specific Pokemon for you.
Of course, if you have more money than sense, it seems there are speedier ways to the top. Some sellers are actually selling high level accounts and super rare/powerful Pokemon, and it looks like they have the potential to go for quite a bit.
Take a look at a small selection below – though I’m going to assume the first guy is just in it for laughs.
It’s worth noting that the accounts with thehigh pricse didn’t have any bids at the time of viewing, so it’s possible these “pokentrepeneurs” are over estimating the value of their goods.
