A crowed gathered in Vega Alta, Puerto Rico not to catch Pokémons, but to get a glimpse of their Boricua pride, Lin-Manuel Miranda. 

During a press conference, the Hamilton creator said he actually "felt like a Pokémon" during his visit while fans followed him around the streets with their cell phones. "I'm the weirdest Pokémon on the island," said Miranda who took some time from his vacation to visit his parent's native Puerto Rico where he'd receive his very own star on the Walk of Fame. 

Besides comparing himself to a Pokémon, Miranda talked politics during the conference, specifically about the economy crisis the U.S. territory is currently facing. "We have to continue that conversation and define who we are," said the "Love Make The World Go Round" singer who back in March, asked Congress to help Puerto Rico's financial crisis. 

But the short trip wasn't just politics and conferences, it was also filled with family gatherings, emotional encounters with fans and reunions with colleagues like Calle 13's René "Residente" Pérez, which he documented and shared on his social media. 

"Cousins," he captioned his photo with Residente. 

His departure from Puerto Rico was just as special when Daddy Yankee and Victor Manuelle shared the flight back home with Miranda.
