Taipei: A 70-year-old man here rides long distances daily with 24 smartphones on his bicycle to chase his passion: hunting Pokemons.
Among tens of thousands of Pokemon hunters in Taipei, Chen San-yuan stands out as the most popular as he has so far caught 45 million creatures since he began playing “Pokemon Go” in 2016, Efe news reported.
This game of augmented reality requires players to seek and capture characters — from the Pokemon saga, which are hidden at real places — and fight with them, which require wide movements and gathering of many players.
Chen is Taoist Master of divination and Feng Shui — an ancient system that establishes rules about architecture and the arrangement of objects to ensure good fortune.
