Japanese Olympic gymnast Kohei Uchimura somehow spent a whole lot of money and data trying to catch Pokémon — even though there are none in Rio.By Matt Moreno | August 3, 2016
Japanese Olympic gymnast Kohei Uchimura could really use some gold right now — not necessarily a gold medal, but just some gold coins to pay off his steep phone bill.
And he supposedly has "Pokémon Go" to blame.
While in Rio de Janeiro for the 2016 Summer Olympics, Uchimura reportedly racked up a nearly $5,000 phone bill while playing the game, thanks to data overages.
