Uptown Mug # 85 . Chas Goguen


You may have noticed an interesting looking dude wearing a bright orange Chaizard hat, seemingly on a mission, all over uptown.  He actually IS on a mission and it is pretty neat.  Chas is a Pokemon GO master and you won’t believe the cool things he sees and now, due to a recent update to the game – he shares.  Pokemon GO has a new feature known as GO Snapshot, which allows you to take AR (augmented reality) photos of the Pokemon in your collection in a real-world location of your choice. Chas is always looking for just the right location to set up a Pokemon for a photo session to highlight not only them, but also the sights of the city, including some pretty impressive uptown photos which he posts to his galleries on Instagram and Twitter.

Have a look at what is actually lurking and enjoying our uptown in places you walk by every day, or what Chas is cleverly creating – by checking out the photos Chas shares here.  Trust us, it is super cool.

Let’s get to know Chas..


Where were you born/Where are you from? 

I was born here in Saint John, and have lived primarily on the west side of town for most of my life.  An artist from a very young age, Chas had a strong interest in drawing, and over the course of his school years developed his own comic book superhero named Dotman.  He has self-published 20 full-color issues of the Dotman comic book series, and is hoping to someday further the budding franchise into the field of animation and other media. Dotman can be found online at dotman.ca (currently being revamped).

How long have you been a part of the uptown scene?

I have frequented the Uptown area for a combined span of probably a couple of decades. I attended Saint John High School on Prince William Street until graduating in 1998, and have worked a couple of jobs in the Uptown area since then. Currently, I’m enrolled in 3D Modeling and Animation at Atlantica College in Market Square, which sees me spending a lot of my time Uptown nowadays. Aside from that, on my days off, I often like to spend a few hours per day roaming around the Uptown area, as it’s a very developed location in Pokemon GO, and provides many scenic backdrops for GO Snapshot sessions. 

I also volunteer as one of the organizers (or “Pokemon Professors”) of the Pokemon League at Heroes’ Beacon at 25 Charlotte Street, where we host Pokemon TCG events every second weekend, viewable on the online calendar at www.heroesbeacon.com. We welcome players of all ages to attend and meet other local players, trade cards with one another, and participate in tournaments for prizes. We also host “Learn To Play” days for newcomers who collect Pokemon cards, but are unfamiliar with how to play and are interested to learn, with exclusive foil promotional cards available for attending. I often record footage of the bigger events held at Heroes’ Beacon to be featured on my YouTube channel, as well.

What is your favourite season, and why?

Summer is my favorite season. For one reason, there’s significantly less snow to shovel, and for another reason, the city feels so much more alive. Nearly every day has a special event going on, the parks are thriving with lush trees and colorful flowers, and there are so many more people out and about to interact with.

Where have you found inspiration?

I am also an aspiring YouTuber, having been inspired by one of my sources of inspiration in the field, Markiplier, to try my hand at performing as an online entertainer. When I initially sat down to decide what kind of video content to focus my channel on, I decided to make use of my many years spent playing games in the Pokemon franchise. Starting off focusing on content from the original Pokemon video games on the Nintendo Game Boy as well as the Pokemon Trading Card Game, I expanded my content in 2016 with the release of Pokemon GO, the mobile app game designed to get people out and about to explore their real world surroundings on their quest to catch ’em all. I often record my Pokemon GO adventures throughout the Uptown area (and other various locations in Saint John) whenever special in-game events are occurring, which allows me to showcase some of the highlights and landmarks of the city in my YouTube videos.

Who is your favorite musician?   

My favorite musician ever since way back in the day has got to be “Weird Al” Yankovic. He’s a tremendously funny guy, and not only does he produce some very entertaining original musical content, the parodies he creates of other popular songs feels like the best of both worlds – a faithful recreation of the original tune and melody, paired with hilarious new lyrics that always provide good laughs. I actually got to talk with him backstage when he toured here at the Imperial Theater in 1997, which was a pretty nice time.


What is your Uptown Insider Tip? 

As a big ol’ nerd myself, I would definitely recommend checking out Heroes’ Beacon for anyone who’s a fan of comics, collectibles, and gaming of various sorts (card games, RPGs, board games, etc.).  And for a great place to grab something to eat, right next door is Freddie’s Pizza and Donair, where they serve not only great pizza at an amazing price, but other delicious items including fish and chips, shawarma, and poutine.

So, the next time you see Chas out and about looking sleuth-like, know his is seeing and capturing something only those who wish can see.  Thank you Chas, for sharing with us.
