I Had Always Thought,

it was advisable,

 not to look at mobile telephones whilst driving, and in some countries even illegal, but not so in Taipei City, in Taiwan if these pictures are anything to go by,

 70-year-old Chen Sanyuan may just be the world’s most dedicated Pokemon GO player, the 70-year-old pokemon hunter is upgrading his bicycle every chance he gets, He currently has a whopping 9 smartphones, all connected to different Pokemon Go accounts installed on the handlebar, as well as 9 power banks stored in a small basket, which allow him to hunt pokemons for around 20 hours at a time, Chen’s unique bike setup made such a big impact on Reddit, that users from Taipei actually started going out in the Taiwanese city in search of the pokemon hunting grandpa,

 one of them actually found him on a hunting run and asked him all kinds of questions, like what got him into Pokemon Go, how many days a week he plays and how many phones he uses, Chen Sanyuan was apparently introduced to Pokemon Go by his grandson, and he fell in love with it,

He always enjoyed riding his bike through Taipei, but Pokemon Go also allowed him to make new friends and stay in touch with them through the app, as time went by, he started dedicating more time and money to the game, and these days he hunts for the digital monsters 5 or 6 days a week and spends around 10,000 yuan ($1,500) a month, both on in-app purchases and on hunting equipment for his bicycle, ET Today recently reported that Chen recently upgraded his gear from 9 smartphones to 11, all running Pokemon GO accounts (minimum level 30), Why so many of them? Well, I’ve never played the game, so I have no idea what advantages they offer Chen, but he claims that the several accounts allow him to attack gyms without requiring support from his friends,

He just uses his high-level accounts and gets the job done on the spot, Chen plans to upgrade his arsenal to 15 smartphones soon to make his pokemon hunting even more efficient, it will require a sizable investment, but the 70-year-old claims that his hobby is definitely worth it, full marks for doing all of that riding, but I just hope he keeps an eye on the road!
