5 Things Every Pokémon Master Needs on His Pokémon Go Journey (3D Printed Version)
Tips from Ginkgo3D.com
Pokémon Go is finally here! After weeks of anticipation, the mobile app that has taken the world by storm has arrived on the sunny shores of Singapore!
The global phenomenon of Pokémon has been a hot topic ever since it was released in the United States, achieving downloads estimated in the millions in its first week alone.
Since then, Niantic, Pokémon Go’s developers, has been expanding its launch to different continents. And now, they’ve finally made their way to South East Asia last Saturday! It’s time to get out there and catch a Dragonite!
But first, like any respectable Pokémon Trainer would, we’ve got to gear up! Here are some things you interesting Pokémon themed items you can 3D print yourself.
No authentic Pokémon hunter is completely geared up until they carry their own Pokéball keychain. Find this cute design by Movilujo at Thingiverse – http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1684895
2. Team emblems
Most important, when you reach level 5 in-game, you get to choose from three different teams to join, Teams Mystic, Instinct and Valor. The best way to flaunt your team win after an intense gym battle? Try showing off these Team Emblem keychains/necklaces. Pokémon GO Team Badge / Necklace by ClassyGoat,
3.Pokéball aimer phone cover
Etsy user, Jon Cleaver aka, Jcach3Printing, has created a Pokeball aiming help tool in the shape of a phone cover for those who can’t seem to swipe up particularly straight. If you have terrible swiping skills like I do, you’ll definitely need it. It’s a surprisingly useful little trinket that really helps (especially when running low on Pokéballs) but will stop you from getting those special curve ball bonuses.
