7 Pokemon Items You Need for All your Poke-Ventures

Are you sick of me talking about Pokemon Go yet? No? Ok, cool. I don't see myself being "over" this game for quite awhile. If you had told nine year old me, standing in line waiting to see Pok√©mon: The First Movie, that 16 years later (because I just counted and that's how long it's been, holy shit) that I'd be walking in circles around a pond trying to catch a Pikachu, I'd have said you were crazy. But HERE WE ARE. The future is here and it's pretty crazy.

Thanks to Pokemon Go I've been getting ALL THE FITBIT STEPS, it's great! It's also a lot easier to get Andrew to go on walks with me now, hahah. Anyway, now that Pokemon is super popular again, that also means one of my favorite sites to shop on (Etsy) is flooded with all sorts of new Pokemon gear. So today I've curated a list of things you'll want - no - need, on all your Pokemon adventures!

1. For staying hydrated - How cute is this water bottle? Pokemon Go doesn't have gym badges, so this is a nod to the original shows and games - I LOVE THAT. Pokemon Go is amazing, but let's not forget where it started.

2. For keeping your battery full - The absolute worst part of Pokemon Go (for me, anyway) is how much of a battery suck it is. I'm thinking about getting a power bank. Maybe even this super fancy SOLAR POWERED pokeball power bank??!

3. For your plants - Ok, so you don't actually need this to help you go and catch Pokemon, but look at it!!! How adorable is that?! Oddish is one of my favorite Pokemon, he's so cute <3 There's also a set of Bulbasaur planters!

4. For your car - I AM NOT ADVOCATING PLAYING POKEMON WHILE YOU DRIVE. But if you're gonna be like that anyway then I'm not gonna tell you how to live your life. At the very least try to warn the other cars around you, ok?!!

5. For when it starts getting colder
- I really love these Pokemon Go/Starbucks team cups! Great for getting your caffeine fix while on the hunt for Snorlax. They're made out of those $1 reusable Starbucks cups, meaning you can take one of these bad boys into Starbucks and get 25 cents off your drink order. I don't drink much hot coffee/tea in the Summer - it's just way too hot - but I can see myself getting a lot of use out of these once it starts cooling down outside.

6. For your snacks
- If you're planning to be out for awhile, you might want to bring some snacks. And don't pack your snacks in a plastic ziplock baggie - you can only get a few uses out of those and WASTE IS WHACK, guys. Instead maybe try one of these pokeball eco-friendly sandwich and snack bags?

7. For carrying all your crap
- So obviously if you're going to carry all this stuff around, you need an equally cool bug-out bag to put it all in. I'm a huge fan of this Pokemon printed backpack! The bulbasaurs look so happy, hahah. Even though I'm an adult and not in school, I still find myself carrying backpacks 50% of the time. They're just so convenient! Especially when I'm walking around looking for Pokemon!
