If you're into mobile app Pokémon GO, you'll likely have heard of Chen San Yuan. The "Pokémon GO Grandpa" started out playing on 11 phones, taking down gyms by himself and slowly building up his rig. At last count, he's now playing from 67 devices.

It's common now for Mr. Chen to appear for photographs at Pokémon GO meet-ups, thanks to his fame in the community.
When asked which Pokémon is his favorite, he replied, "I love them all."
