NEW YORK — Too busy with your real life to play the hit augmented reality game “Pokemon Go?” For a price, entrepreneurs will play the game for you.

Ads are being posted on Craigslist by people who say they will log on to your “Pokemon Go” account and effectively run up your score while you are stuck at work or sitting in class.

Pokemon trainers Lewis Gutierrez and Jordan Clark, of New York City, say they have clients paying them $20 per hour for the service.

Many of their customers want to compete in the game at a high level but don’t have time to roam the city playing the game all day.

“Pokemon Go” has been a phenomenon since its release. The game involves going to real-world locations to hunt virtual characters.
