A 70-year-old man in Taiwan has gone viral for playing Pokémon Go with 11 phones attached to his bicycle. Chen San-yuan has made headlines internationally for the strange setup. Chen also keeps external batteries and charging cables on him so he can enjoy up to 20 hours of battery life per phone.

Since first getting caught on social media and going viral in August, Chen has upgraded to a waist mount, so he can travel with his 11 phones on foot. His neighbor also commented on how Chen’s unique approach to catching pokémon has turned their street into a tourist attraction.

In an interview with a local outlet, Chen explained in his native Hokkien dialect that after his retirement, he took on the hobby after learning about the game from his grandson. He spends $1,290 a month to add phones to his collection and add lures to pokéstops, among other in-app upgrades. Of all the pokémon, his favorite is Snorlax, the big, cuddly giant most famous for blocking the road while he naps.

But one aspect of Pokémon Go that Chen rarely partakes in is gym battles, as he feels it wouldn’t be fair to other players. He’s a gentle soul who would prefer to walk around catching and upgrading rare pokémon. We’re sure, however, that should he change his mind, the Elite Four would welcome him into their ranks.

Nintendo Switch passes the GameCube in lifetime sales.
The Nintendo Switch has overtaken another console in lifetime sales: the GameCube. The Japanese console maker sold 3.19 million units in the last quarter, bringing the Switch's total install base to 22.86 million. The beloved GameCube, by comparison, managed 21.74 million in its six-year run. (The Switch eclipsed the Wii U back in January.) For Nintendo, these are healthy numbers. The company sold 2.93 million Switch consoles in the same period last year, before entering a bumper holiday season that shifted 7.23 million units. The house of Mario will need similar success this year to hit its sales target of 20 million for the current financial year.
