IG/FB: Pochum_

This section is 2020 update although the bottom section still holds true :)

I am a world famous Pokémon Go player getting paid to travel and play video games for a living! I love cartoons, I love Pokémon, and I love bringing the kid out of everyone! I’m all about having fun even if cartoons and video games isn’t your thing

I have thousands of fans! Don’t believe me, check out my Facebook page (Pochum) and see the commotion. It’s mostly in Spanish so good luck. Funny, humble, respectful and the realest person you’ll ever meet . I am the Lebron James/Ronaldo of Pokémon Go.

I love to meet people! I love to make people laugh. And I love to connect people thru games, video games and cartoons! It’s my passion, it’s my career, I am living the dream life any nerd would desire!

Oh did I mention I am practicing multiple religions and being vegan 🌱! Oh yeah vegan life is fucking amazing and I’ll convince you! Currently practicing Islam ‏السلام عليكم and loving it! Always down to join your religion to try it out 😊

2020+ Profile update ☝️☝️☝️☝️☝️☝️

2019 and before PROFILE 👇👇👇👇👇

I’m a really happy optimistic person whose now enjoying the fine things in life. I grew up poor, bullied, and in the worst parts of Los Angeles. I didn't think Traveling would be possible thus why I'm so grateful to be doing this life experience. I love meeting people and sharing traveling experience, tips and guidelines. I am from the Mexican community side of Los Angeles that not many people dare to go. If you ever visit Los Angeles, California in the USA, I will gladly show you some of the best Mexican food of your life!

A. Currently in the process of getting an apartment. I will be living by Koreatown (Safe area between downtown and Hollywood). I am happy to host multiple people. All I ask in return is you help us with the cooking and you're in.

B. When I travel, I’m able to assist any fellow traveler with hotel accommodations. If there is space, you are welcome to share the hotel room with me. You get treated like a king when you stay with me :). Free breakfast, free drinks, great Hilton Diamond perks. I can only invite up to 3 lucky individuals and all I ask in return is to be interactive, fun, open, and be ready to share tons of stories. I CAN NOT STAND FREE LOADERS! I say this because I have invited so many people in the past and they disappear after taking advantage. No communication, no reference made, its as if they wanted nothing with me after that. I have received good karma and made new friends through this, so I am picky with whom I select.

A. Try all the potato chips in the world
B. Try all McDonalds in the world
C. Ride all the unique rollercoasters in the world
D. Teach Non-Spanish speakers the Spanish bad words
E. Do/Meet/See anything that’s a world record
F. Visit at least 100 countries in my life time.
G. If possible, all 197

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Although I usually stay in hotels, it's not the same as meeting actual people who share the same travel passion. I am new to this so I want to take advantage of meeting people from all over the world. I went to SMC in California, USA for school and made so many international friends during my time at the Retract club. I was also a professional Dance Dance Revolution player and made friends with players from all over the world. I love to make more connections when possible. I'm an open minded person and NOT SHY AT ALL!

One of my crazy goals is to fill up that world Couch surfing map. I love to meet people from the most uncommon places in the world. So if you are from Kazakhstan, Laos, Suriname, Haiti, Romania, or some other uncommon place from the world, I would love to meet you, hang out and get to know you and your culture!

After meeting ladies from all over the world and hearing their horrifying couch surfing experieces with weirdos, unwanted sexual advantages and near kidnappings, I have now found a true purpose on this app. TO STOP THOSE FUCKING CREEPS. This isn't a dating app, go to Tinder, Bumble and other dating sites to do your dirty work. Look if love and romance happens, let it be, but learn how to wave the white flag if the lady says NO!

These creeps don't have a name but for now we will call them "Lurkers." I am not afraid to leave a bad reference in their profile, I am down to help you catch these guys in action and stop them in their tracks. Its not cock blocking by all means, as I wish all my friends to have as much sex as possible, but there is a difference between finding a connection and finding someone to take advantage of. So please ladies or men, if you feel someone is taking advantage of you and youre afraid to say something, contact me and lets stop these sexual predators before someone else becomes a victim of Lurkers!!!

YOU of course! But please don't be that person who wants to take advantage of the situation. I am not afraid to write a bad reference if you end up being a LURKER of a FREE LOADER. I ask nothing in return, just good company, maybe a beer or a bite later on, and a reference after our meeting is over :). Also I love to meet people from not so common countries. If you are from Azerbaijan, Ghana, Equitorial Guinea, Pakistan, Bolivia, Luxemborg, then I will most likely choose you!

My preference is people with a sense of humor. I love to laugh and talk shit. The more racists the joke, the funnier it will be. I don't take offense if you have a good Mexican joke. I love open minded people who also aren't afraid to talk about sex. I am a respectful Scorpio who isn't aiming to get in your pants, but is open minded to share very funny and interesting stories. So you can say I love extroverted people. Introverts can apply and I will be happy to help you open up. So back to the jokes, seriously some of the best connections I've had with couch surfers is sharing a racial joke. If you are offended by these, THEN GET THE FUCK OUT OF MY FACE. Have a laugh and enjoy life. In fact I will share some with you right now:

Why don't Mexican's have an Olympic team? Because all the ones that can run, jump and swim have already crossed the border!!

I asked a Chinese girl for her number. She said. "Sex! Sex! Sex! Free sex tonight!" I said "Wow!" Then her friend said, "She means 666-3629"

Do not be racist; be like Mario. He's an Italian plumber, who was made by the Japense, speaks English, looks like a Mexican, jumps like a black man, and grabs coins like a Jew

If any of those jokes offended you, don't FUCKING contact me. If you loved it and want to hear more, then come join me :)

I bring this up because I have been hit on by numerous men in both the hangout section and in my travels. Its obvious when you are trying to hit on me so don't even THINK ABOUT IT. I can smell your intentions from 1000 km away and although I am flattered by you thinking that way about me, I will not let you try me. Nothing against gay people, many of you make good company, but this body only belongs to the Aphrodite godesses.

This is why I prefer the company of a woman. No I am not trying to get in your pants (read my references), but I love the company of a lady. I love hearing your experiences and I want to shine a light to all the single men out there who are trying to look for love. Think of me like the love doctor who is trying to help everyone find love. Need a good wingman, I got your back. I have a 7 year old daughter so I know what its like to take care of a lady. Women are smarter and more open to share their feelings as oppose to men. I am not afraid to express myself either.
