8 Things Every Future Pokémaster Needs in Their Bag
By RJ Firmeza
Sheer knowledge of the game isn’t enough; you’ll also need to prep the right gear before heading off on your journey into the vast world of Pokémon. From hydration packs to an improvised Pokédex, here’s everything that you, aspiring Pokémaster, will need in your pack.
8. Bicycle + Phone Mount
Bikes have been a staple in the Pokémon game since its GameBoy days, so why not employ it in real life? Biking combined with Pokémon Go is probably the best exercise out there right now. Plus, biking makes the process of ”hatching” a breeze. First, you’ll need a bike, then a phone-mount to make gameplay convenient.

It’s a rough world out there, especially with the heat from the scorching sun. Your body is as important as your prized Pikachu. Always apply sunblock to prevent any skin damage from overexposure.
4. Hydration Pack
Dehydration is a real risk during any adventure, so save yourself the hassle of carrying a bottle of water or the need to pull it from your bag. Invest instead in a Hydration Pack, which allows you to quench your thirst via a tube. Voila!
3. Polarized Shades
Your phone is already doing damage to your eyes, so don’t let the sun punish your peepers, too. You’ll need the right shades—and not just any shades. Go out and get polarized ones, which will protect you from the sun’s harsh glare. A pair of these babies don’t only provide style but also protection.
2. Sun Hat
There’s no real Pokédex for Pokémon Go on the market yet, so before going on an adventure, you’ll need to do a little research first. Sure, you’re bound to find Pokémon if you look hard enough, but if your goal is to catch a rare one, then you’ll need to scour social media in the hopes of finding leads to the Pokémon you’re eyeing.
