Hey guys, I ran into this question today:

Catch any pokemon every 5 minutes on average, 42 different pokemon total, how long before you have caught every kind of pokemon? you can use whatever program you want, need to explain assumptions.

I was thinking of using a Poisson process/Exponential distribution but I'm stuck.
