Written by


Chen San-yuan first made headlines earlier this year when a photo of him playing Pokemon Go on 6 phones appeared on reddit. That was May, the following month, a Taiwanese gaming channel, EXP.gg, tracked him down where he was not only just as active but had upgraded his rig to 9 devices!

By August, word of San-yuan had reached mainstream outlets like the BBC and Chen San-yuan was now up to an astonishing 11 phones!

The 70-year-old grandfather first learned of the game from his grandson and has been addicted ever since. He says it keeps his mind sharp, body active and wallet light; as he spends upwards of $1,290 per month on in-game purchases.

Mr. Chen has become a local celebrity in the Taiwanese capital of Taipei and credits the game with helping him fend off Alzheimer’s and most importantly, making new friends as he explores his city.
