Chen, who said he sometimes stays out until 4 a.m. hunting for Pokemon, said he became hooked on Pokemon Go after his grandson showed him how to play in 2016.

The dedicated player said his habit costs him more than $1,300 each month and he is considering expanding his rig to be able to play on 15 phones simultaneously.
