This Singaporean company will pay Pokemon Go masters to play the game

Ash might’ve been living his best life, catching pet monsters, running around the world with friends and saving the day with minimal effort, but we doubt he was paid for his exploits. A Singaporean company wants to change that, at least for real world Pokemon masters.

The company dubbed Funzing posted a new job listing on Facebook Wednesday, looking for Pokemon Go trainers to catch and train these virtual Pokemon.

And yes, it’s an actual job.

“We’re looking for an enthusiastic Pokemon Master for the FIRST EVER Pokemon Job in the world. If you’re a Pokemon fanatic, and you’re always out on an adventure catching them all, WE WANT YOU!,” the job posting explains.

Funzing also explains that you’ll be paid for your troubles, but doesn’t state exactly how much you’ll receive. It also doesn’t stipulate what currency it’s working with — Singapore dollars or… PokeCoin.

Nevertheless, if you fancy a crack at a new life in Singapore (perhaps you like the idea of riding a lapras across the Indian Ocean to get there), you can apply for the position here.
