For most Pokemon fans like myself, Pokemon never went anywhere, even though the news likes to report on Pokemon Go with words like "Comeback" and "Return" of a franchise. Pokemon Go is simply a different avenue of Pokemon gaming, which is why it has seen such a resurgence in trending popularity. Simply put, Pokemon has always been here, but the newest installment has tickled our nostalgic bone in such a way that I for one can't get enough of it.
Today, I thought I'd take a posting moment and share with you all of my favorite Poke-websites. The content ranges from information/tips, all the way to homemade and professionally made products. Let's dive in.
1. Pokemon Merch At It's Finest
PokemonCenter.com has everything a Poke collector could ever want. They sell Apparel, Trading Cards, Home & Decor, Accessories, Video Games, and even Plushes! Here are a few of my favorites:
2. Pokedex Battery Case
This homemade case was created by Nick Poole and is pretty awesome. The only downside is the team Valor logo(Go Team Mystic!). You can see in the images above how this is put together from different angles.
3. Homemade Pokeball Charger
I already have plans for making my own version of a pokeball charger, but this one's for sale on Etsy and it's pretty damn cool. It's a little pricey at $50, but if its a well built charger, it may be worth the cash. There's nothing in your quest to becoming a Pokemon trainer as terrible as being at a lured Pokespot and your phone battery runs out of juice.
Want to stay up to date with everything Pokemon? Serebii has all of the information you will ever need on the past, present, and future of Pokemon, in all of its forms. Their official description is "Contains up-to-date news, databases and information about all Pokémon Games, TCG sets and the TV show." What are you waiting for?
5. How Could I Ever Leave Out Reddit?
The Pokemon Go Reddit has been my go-to for all things Pokemon Go. People are data mining and are using trial and error within the app to find out all sorts of new information about the app. Actually, this should have probably been my number one, as you will find the most up to date Pokemon Go information here.
