Clicky

It’s true: we fell hard for Pokemon Go from the moment it came out. We’ve been hustling as a family, chasing down Pokemon all over town. Go, team Valor!

In case you’re wondering, Pokemon Go is this summer’s hottest craze — and it’s only been out about a week.

The game is played on a smartphone and players search the real world to “catch” more than 100 species of Pokemon, a Nintendo character, at any number of “Pokestops,” or locations. So you’ll find people at local parks, landmarks and any number of other places, all trying to catch Pokemon or duel against other players.

While the game is considered “augmented reality” and is downloaded via a free app, there are plenty of physical accessories that can be had.

Here, then, are 7 of the top gifts to buy for your favorite Pokemon Go fan:

 

Pokemon Go Plus

The 7 Must Have Gift Ideas For Pokemon Go Trainers

This is a watch that pairs with a smartphone to help players find and capture Pokemon. The phone and watch will both start to vibrate when a Pokemon is close by. The major attraction of the accessory is that players no longer have to stare at their phones’ screens while searching. And with the click of a button, it throws a pokeball for you!

Good luck finding one of these, though! The release date is July 31, and the accessory is sold out everywhere. Here is a link to Amazon’s product page.

 

Portable Phone Charger

The biggest complaint about the game is that it drains a phone’s battery within a few hours. So a portable backup charger is perfect to keep things moving.

The Anker PowerCore+ mini is one of Amazon’s highest-rated chargers.
