Poké Ball bug cages are definitely not new, but today we got a long-awaited new design for the product: the fabled Master Ball!
There is a lot more to this product than meets the eye. To many people, they would just look at it and say, ‘how cute, a Poké Ball bug cage’, but it’s so much more than that; its importance possibly dates back to the childhood of Pokémon creator, Satoshi Tajiri. Young Japanese kids LOVE to catch bugs and see who can catch the most and largest bugs out of their friends. This is a childhood pastime that Tajiri loved to participate in and has even been quoted saying that Pocket Monsters were inspired by it.
The Master Ball bug cage can be obtained for the super low price of ¥1,650 and is currently available to order through the IRON FACTORY website. If you’re looking to get this to catch bugs or to just add to your collection, you can do so with the help of a friend that lives in Japan or with a proxy service.
