With the release of Pokémon Detective Pikachu just around the corner, it’s fair to suggest that the Pokémon multi-media franchise is pretty much the talk of the town. Not without good reason either, Detective Pikachu is absolutely amazing, and the franchise has consistently been pushing incredible content since the nooks of our nostalgic early days. Pokémon is a veritable pop icon, something which has lead to collaborations with pretty much every brand under the sun, the latest being Los Angeles-based lifestyle goods maker CASETiFY. Now, this one specifically goes out to the owners of Apple devices (sorry everyone else), but if you’ve got an iPhone, Macbook, or AirPods and are a fan of Pokémon, then you’re in luck.
After much online teasing, CASETiFY’s official Pokémon collaboration is finally here. For fans of Pokémon, there’s definitely a number of very choice pieces here, my favorite of which would have to be the sticker-bomb cases on both the AirPods, iPhone, and Macbook. The full collection, which spans some 55 varied items, screams design sensibility alongside childhood nostalgia. I like to think that I’m not one to fall for the latter of those two, but there really is something genuinely clean about this all. Whether it’s the timeliness of this all with me having recently seen Detective Pikachu or a genuine case of longing for the past, all of these rule and I hope to see more in the future.
Perhaps most stylistically impressive of the bunch is the neon sand case which features any number of the first-gen Pokémon over the top of a fitting moving background. Of that bunch, my obvious choices would be both the Pikachu and the Mew cases. Very cool, CASETiFY.
Available now via CASETiFY, those interested in checking out the brand’s official collaboration with Pokémon can head over to their online store.
