Poke Ball Serving Bowl Set

jgpo_poke_ball_serving_bowl_set

Pokemon is all the rage these days, but will it still be relevant in a few months? Is the rage even as ragey as it was when it was first released? We can’t answer those questions, we don’t know, but we do wonder if you’ll still be as infatuated with this Poke Bowl Serving Set once you’re done catching pocket monsters.

The Poké Ball Serving Bowls come with two dishwasher safe halves of the classic ball used in the Poké-verse. The red top and white bottom can slot together and will equal the approximate size of a volleyball. Sure, that is more than adequate space for your pet hamster to roll around in while you pretend it’s a Pokémon, but that might count as hamster abuse so don’t do it. Instead, fill it with tasty snacks. Preferably the cheesy variety.

Tee hee… hamsters are funny. Anyway, if you want your own Pokemon-themed serving set, you’ll have to spend all of $20.

The Pokemon Go craze continues unabated, and while we could make all kinds of comments, we won’t. It is what it is, and for better or worse, there are tons of products being made to hitch a free ride on the bandwagon. The iPhone case pictured above is a creation of one John Cleaver, and its only use in the world is to help you throw that Pokeball as straight as possible. Why? So you can… catch them all. Of course. It’s a free download, but you’ll need your own 3D printer and iPhone 6. And given the fact it’s going viral and tons of people are asking John for cases that fit their phones, stay tuned for cases adapted to Samsung phones and more.

Pokemon Pokeball Weed Grinder

So this looks like the sort of item you better buy now, because we can hear the lawyers writing their Cease & Desist letters already. It’s a Pokeball, but you won’t catch any pocket monster with it. Instead, you’ll use it to grind up your fine botanicals and put yourself in the mood to spend all day playing that game. It’s not as if you’re not already doing that, of course, but you know… you might as well take it to an extreme and Pokemon errthing.

It’s $22.

There’s a huge retro-gaming market for people my age, born in the early 80’s who spent their childhood playing NES and SNES games. Nintendo is clearly aware of this, so they’re about to capitalize on that by releasing the NES Classic Edition. It’s a palm-sized version of the old console which comes preloaded with 30 games, which means no fussing around with large cartridges that you had to blow into constantly just to get them to play! You just have to plug the machine into your TV’s HDMI port and play away. The game roster includes classics like all three Marios, Punch-Out, both Zeldas and Metroid. It’s going to cost all of $60 and comes in time for the Holidays with a release date of November 11.

Hit the jump for a full list of the games as well as links.
