Finally, Your iPhone Can Become a Pokédex
posted on by Kim Morrissy
Premium Bandai is releasing iPhone covers designed to look like a first generation Pokédex. The item is available for order through the Premium Bandai website starting from Wednesday, and will cost 3,980 yen (US$37) not including postage and handling costs. It is expected to ship in March 2020.
The cover is 170mm x 105mm, and is compatible with the iPhone X. It is not compatible with the iPhone XR, XS, XS Mac, or 11. It works on the iPhone 6, 7, and 8, although the mic and lights will be covered. Android users are out of luck altogether, unfortunately. So it looks like for now you can only become a Pokémon Master if you've got an iPhone X (for now).
