Casetify is  collaborating with The Pokemon company to bring a new collection of cases for a variety of Apple devices with a nostalgic '90s Pokemon theme. 

With cases for iPhones, iPods, Apple Watches, MacBooks, and special wireless chargers, the collection features designs of some of the most iconic Pokemon including, of course, everybody's favourite electric mouse, Pikachu. 

"Inspired by the concept of "Past, Present, and Future," the latest Casetify and Pokemon collection plays on the classic 90s trends, with cases featuring iconic patterns from the decade like bold checkerboards and tie-dye treatments. The premium quality accessories will showcase the fan-favourite Pokemon Pikachu, Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle on drop-resistant cases".

The collection is set to be made up of a three-part series of accessories, with the first set due to drop on Casetify's official website (opens in new tab) on August 12, 2020. As well as the classic starter Pokemon, the collection also offers personalization options and also features other much-loved characters such as Magikarp, Gengar, and Cubone, with some designs featuring multiple Pokemon in one. Paying homage to the decade when Pokemon Blue and Pokemon Red first released back in 1996, any '90s kid who grew up playing Pokemon like me will get a nostalgic kick over these, particularly when paired with the best gaming phones (opens in new tab).

This isn't the first time (opens in new tab) Castefiy has teamed up with The Pokemon Company to bring us Pokemon-themed cases. Just last year, a series of cases were released featuring the likes of Mewtwo, Eevee, Snorlax, Jigglypuff, and Mew. With lots of adorable and fun designs, you can currently sign-up for the waitlist for this new collection, which is set to bring yet more Pokemon goodness to your Apple devices.

Pokemon Sword and Shield is a love letter to British culture that I'm all too happy to read (opens in new tab)

Senior staff writer

I started out writing for the games section of a student-run website as an undergrad, and continued to write about games in my free time during retail and temp jobs for a number of years. Eventually, I earned an MA in magazine journalism at Cardiff University, and soon after got my first official role in the industry as a content editor for Stuff magazine. After writing about all things tech and games-related, I then did a brief stint as a freelancer before I landed my role as a staff writer here at GamesRadar+. Now I get to write features, previews, and reviews, and when I'm not doing that, you can usually find me lost in any one of the Dragon Age or Mass Effect games, tucking into another delightful indie, or drinking far too much tea for my own good.
