Meet Pokemon Go grandpa, a 74-year-old Taiwanese man who plays the game on 64 phones
It doesn’t matter if you’re a social media buff, because there’s no way you have not heard of the viral game Pokemon Go. Created by Niantic, the game went crazy viral as people from the age of 8 to 80 couldn’t stop playing it. Now, a 74-year-old grandpa from Taiwan has made headlines for being a bit too much involved in the interactive game.
For the uninitiated, Pokemon Go is a fun game where the participant can catch Pokemons that were shown in the TV series. Several rare Pokemons were also available for people to catch and one had to walk and throw Pokeballs on their smartphones to increase their collection.
The elderly man from Taiwan got so fond of the game that he fixed 64 phones on his bicycle to amp up his level in the game. Chen San-Yuan was introduced to the game by his grandson in 2016. “By 2018, he had already upgraded his setup to eight phones and became a local celebrity known as 'the PokÃ©mon go grandpa,” informed the caption of the post shared on Instagram.
The pictures shared along with the post show grandpa on his bicycle with all the phones.
The post has garnered over 228k likes and many reactions. People were impressed with the elderly man’s unique talent. They wrote about how the man’s enthusiasm showed the popularity of Pokemon.
