A Japanese Pokémon GO player who goes by the name @tarotirota0106 online has successfully set the record for the most Pokémons caught in a day. Travelling approximately 80 miles and catching 8 Pokémons per minute, the player’s final tally was 11,400 Pokémons in 24 hours. He caught 139 Shiny Pokémon as well.

This all occurred during the recent Pokémon Community Day event. According to his Tweet, the most difficult part was managing the number of Poké Balls necessary since players only have so much storage capacity. He needed to maintain a certain number of Poké balls on-hand, initially starting with 2900 Poké Balls and traveling 80 miles by bike to hit the right Poké Stops.

Though he faced many challenges, the player still managed to obtain 139 Shiny Pokémon, including several Fletchling, a female Nidoran, Red Passer and a Snubbull. The player alluded to the help he received transferring his Poké Ball stock to Professor Willow who transforms the balls into candy or sends them to the Pokémon HOME application.
