Trendy licensed iPhone case maker CASETiFY’s latest collaboration is with The Pokémon Company. But this is not your usual licensed tool, made to promote the latest movie, TV series, movie comedy or reverse mortgage system. Oh no, this line goes all the way back to the beginning and limits its subjects to the original 151 Pokémon from RED and Blue.
CASETiFY does more than just narrow down its roll lists and makes these iPhone cases, AirPods cases, Apple Watch bands and (I think?) Cable ties with the design sensitivity of the 90s. And the early Pokémon the brand’s odd fascination with the creatures’ catalog numbers is faithfully preserved. Drop one of these patterns on a pencil case or a cardboard file folder, and I would swear I was back in high school.
Right now, these splashy patterns are still on hold, with “priority access” available if you join a waiting list. Prices are not mentioned on CASETiFY’s campaign page, but their existing cases generally cost around $ 45-50. CASETiFY also sells cases for iPad and some Galaxy phones as well as some bags and stickers, but they are not confirmed on the page either.
