Chen San-yuan, 70, uses 11 smartphones to catch the virtual monsters.
Pictures showed him the in a park in New Taipei City, Taiwan, with his unusual set up.
He mounts the phones on his bike, charged by a bag of batteries, and spends all his spare time catching Pokemon on streets or in parks.
Chen loves the mobile game so much sometimes he doesn’t return home until 4am.
And he’s not done yet.
Chen, who is affectionately known as ‘Uncle Pokemon’, wants to increase his smartphones to 15.
That would mean an increase to his bill for his hobby, which currently costs him £1,165 a month.
But it’s all worth it because Chen believes the game helps him prevent Alzheimer’s disease.
He also gets to make friends with other players.
Chen got hooked on Pokemon Go in 2016 when his grandson taught him how to play.
