The other day I saw someone on an electric skateboard, holding a controller in their hand and I had a thought - using an electric skateboard to get around looks way faster than walking and therefore would be great for playing Pokemon Go. 

 

However I know nothing at skateboarding - having never even attempted to ride a manual skateboard in my youth.

 

Searching for electric skateboards leads to be a raft of option, many seem to be sold out
I know I dont need an off road one ... 

 

Anyone know anything and can point me in the right direction?

Boosted Boards are popular but really expensive. They were popularised by Casey Neistat.

Here’s a comparison between a genuine one and a cheaper immitation product:
