So, if you’ve been busy in the past few days playing the augmented reality game, you may have realized that the game isn’t as easy as it looks. Pokemon GO requires a lot of patience and a lot of walking before you really become a master. Well, we have some accessories for you that should make your life as a Pokémon master much easier.
Here are 4 accessories for Pokemon Go that you should buy to help you “get them all”:
1. Pokemon Go Plus

2. Pokeball Power Bank
Chances are that you are already well aware of the battery issues that the game brings to your smartphone, considering the continued use of GPS, network and screen. Although you can minimize battery consumption when playing Pokemon Go, it is always better to have a charging solution, which is better than the Pokeball power bank. THE Handmade Pokeball power bank includes a 5,300 mAh battery with 2.1 amps power, which should easily charge your phone two or three times. The power bank includes LED indicators to indicate when the battery is low, charging and fully charged.
In addition, the power bank also has a lock, so you can easily attach the Poké Ball to your belt or backpack and move around to catch Pokémon with ease. The Pokeball power bank looks pretty cool, with the specs being good too, but if you want an even more powerful or reliable solution, you can check out the 10,000 mAh power bank of 20,000 mAh and Crave or choose from a ton of banks available on Amazon.

3. Pokemon cases
Since Pokemon Go is the reason why you will spend a lot of time in your neighborhood, why not show your Pokemon Go love with one of the Pokémon themed cases. You can find a multitude of Pokemon themed cases for iPhones and Samsung Galaxy devices on Redbubble. There are different Pokemon themed cases, along with Pokeball projects and more. We also liked the Pokedex iPhone case available on Amazon.
If you have a smartphone other than the iPhone or Samsung Galaxy, you will have to search for Pokemon cases on Amazon. You can also find some Pokemon cases at the official Pokemon merchandise store, the Pokemon Center.
4. The Pokedex DIY battery box
If you have been a Pokémon fan for a long time, or if you watched the Pokémon cartoon series, you would remember Pokedex. It is a device that contains information about all Pokemon. Well, Nick Poole, Sparkfun user, created a 3D printed battery case, which looks like a Pokedex and has a compartment where you can fit on your smartphone. In addition, he also managed to squeeze into a 2600 mAh battery in case. The guy has been good enough to post an outline of how to make this custom case and also posted the print files on Github for other users.
If you have a 3D printer and you know how to connect things, it’s good to go. However, if you’re like me, the good news is that Poole is already in the process of testing models for different phones, so that people can buy the finished product. Cool right?
