Do you remember the elderly uncle who was selling Pokemon plush toys outside of a bank in Uptown, Damansara?

Unfortunately, Uncle David has since passed away due to long-term illness.

June Lim, a friend of Uncle David, took to her Facebook account to share the sad news.

Dear our beloved Uncle David, our sweet memories with Pokemon Toys. 😭 Good bye Uncle Pokemon…

She wrote, “Dear our beloved Uncle David, our sweet memories with Pokemon Toys. Goodbye, Uncle Pokemon.”

Uncle David took the internet by storm years ago when he had stocked up on 250 Pokemon plush toys after a customer requested for it, but they never showed up. The general public rushed to his aid to buy the great-quality toys that he was humbly selling for RM10 a piece.

And he was there selling the plush toys even after the Pokemon Go phase had mellowed down.

Unfortunately, the Covid-19 outbreak and health complications made things even harder for him as not only did he have cancer but he was also rendered immobile due to sores on his feet that would bleed, from the chemotherapy and diabetes.

The Movement Control Order also put a stop to his plush toy business, which was his livelihood.

He was later hospitalised at Hospital Ampang for heart problems.

You will be dearly missed, Uncle David. Thank you so much for the joy you’ve brought.
