Apart from coming up with ways to make money off the Pokémon Go craze, people are also coming up with ways on how to enjoy the game like this custom-made Pokédex case.

Created by Sparkfun user Nick Poole, the custom Pokédex case was 3D-printed to house his Samsung Galaxy S4. It also comes with a 2600mAh battery pack to add extra juice for the device. As many players have discovered, Pokémon Go is a huge drain on a phone’s battery, The Verge reported.

Possibly anticipating the interest that his creation might generate, he outlined the process on how he created his smartphone case/replica Pokédex. Poole is currently trying out different designs to fit different phone models. Users with no access to a 3D printer may be able to purchase directly from him one of these days.  Alfred Bayle
