IFA 2016: Tool for Pokemon Go Helps You Throw PokeBalls Accurately

If you’re having a tough time tossing those PokeBalls and often find yourself having to do a massive PokeStop run cause you’ve wasted your stash on that low-level, stubbron Pidgey, then this may be the perfect accessory for you — if you own an iPhone and an existing case from the brand making them. Catalyst, an iPhone and iPad case manufacturer, has just made their $10 (Php 460) “Tool for Pokemon Go” accessory available. Catalyst’s “Tool for Pokemon Go” is very similar to the 3D printed iPhone case that Jon Cleaver made; save for the fact that this one is made with silicon rubber and it goes above the waterproof case that they’ve already made for the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus.


It works pretty much the same way as the 3D-printed “aimer” case with a guide running down the middle to make sure you toss the PokeBall with precision and it seems fairly easy to attach to your phone; you just place either the top or bottom on one end and stretch it out to fit the other. If you’re fond of tossing out a stylish curve ball to get that 10 extra XP though, you may not be able to do so with this accessory but there is a cut out for the camera in the back if you like using the AR function.


The entire setup will run you a total of $80 or Php 3,732, if you don’t have the existing Catalyst Case ($70 for the case and $10 for the accessory) — not too bad considering the case is IP68 certified and meets the MIL-SPEC 810G rating to protect phones from a drop of 2 meters.
