Woman quits job to become full-time Pokemon Go player

London: A 26-year-old woman in the UK has quit her teaching job to become Britain's first full-time Pokemon Go player as she believes there is a lot of money to be made from the widely popular location-based augmented reality game.

Pokemon obsessed Sophia Pedrazza, from High Barnet north London, plans to cash in on the craze by hitting the streets to collect virtual characters and then sell her accounts on eBay.

Pokemon Go masters are already flipping their accounts for thousands of pounds on eBay to players who prefer to buy the Pokemon instead of catching them all.

"I downloaded it and immediately realised there is money to be made. If you can get to a decent level you can sell it on to people on ebay," said Pedrazza, who earned up to 2,000 pounds a month giving private lessons to kids in maths, English and music.
