To paraphrase Mugatu, Pokemon Go is so hot right now, so naturally the only official accessory for the game, Pokemon Go Plus, is burning hotter than a thousand Arcanine.
The $35 clip-on attachment allows you to capture Pokemon without needing to look at your phone. It's coming to stores later this month, but most (all?) have already been spoken for through preorders. That hasn't stopped sellers from trying to unload their yet-to-be-received devices on eBay for over $100, with a couple having sold for upward of $200.
Before you fall too far in love, you'll need to know these key facts: It's expensive (roughly $200; the Pokeball case is extra), and it won't be easy to get in the US. But hey, no one said catching 'em all would be easy.
And if you want a legit Pokemon-themed wedding ring? Well, U-Treasure can help you out there too. That Pikachu solitaire starts around $600 with a cubic zirconia, though you can upgrade to a diamond if you've saved up enough Pokedollars.
Not all the best Pokemon figurines are Japanese exclusives. This limited-edition Nendoroid Red: Champion Ver. figurine set comes complete with a hand-painted Red (including swappable faces and arms), Charizard, Venusaur and Blastoise.
Pokemon are awesome. Lego are awesome. So it only stands to reason that the two of them together are double awesome, if not awesome squared.
Japanese toy company Kawada Co. Ltd is well known for its Nanoblock line of figurines (think Lego, but smaller), which includes several of your favorite Pokemon. Many of these are out of stock at US retailers, but you can still find most at reasonable prices on Amazon.com.
Do you have sore and calloused feet from hatching all those damn 10-kilometer eggs? Treat yo'self (after a nice, long soak) to this rad pair of plush Pikachu slippers*! They're currently just $16.48 at spencersonline.com.
If you ever find yourself in the market for a new Nintendo 3DS XL, we recommend keeping an eye out for special editions. You'll pay a premium price, but you get a far cooler item, and many of Nintendo's Pokemon-themed handhelds have appreciated dramatically in value since their release.
Ditto is one of our favorite Pokemon, if only because Ditto can be any Pokemon -- only cuter. So naturally, we're in love with these limited-edition Series 2 Ditto-themed plushies, released in May 2016.
To get your hands on these, you'll need to visit a Pokemon Center in Japan. You can use a Pokemon Center importer, too, but you'll have to pay a premium.
If you're not lucky enough to have a Pokemon special edition 3DS XL -- or if you just want to keep it free of scratches and other damage -- check out this officially licensed Pikachu Premium Gold Protector by Hori.
Pokemon aren't just cute, they're also delicious. You know, in cookie form.
Just mix together some sugar, flour, baking soda and a couple Exeggcutes, roll the dough flat, and start stamping away. This $24.95 set from the Pokemon Center includes Pikachu, Chespin, Fennekin and Froakie.
