Chen San-yuan has become a celebrity in Taipei for attaching multiple phones to his bike as he rides around the city. Affectionately known as Uncle Pokemon to locals, Chen’s picture was posted to Reddit earlier this month after he was interviewed by a local news station. Until then, Chen did not even know he was particularly well known.
Pokemon Go does require a connection for the phone and Chen isn’t riding around with a hotspot for all 11 phones, so this Pokemon journey is costing him about $1290 a month. But considering it is keeping him healthy and helping to stave off Alzheimer’s, it seems worth it.
