About

About us

My friend Pei Jian and me are the super fans of Pokemon Game Series and Nintendo. We have played each generation of Pokemon Game Series since 1999. We are so familiar with each character in Pokemon, the Pokemon game developing story, BGM (background music), and backstage secrets about this series.

Yes, they are part of our lives in case you wondered! Before Pokemon Go came out, we were just playing Pokemon games at home or in other friends’ houses. We traded our Pokemon with friends and we had so many topics to discuss, but we couldn’t just be real Pokemon trainers just like Ash. That’s the dream for all Pokemon enthusiasts. Now, Pokemon Go makes our dream come true! We can use our mobile phones to catch Pokemon everywhere in the world. The first day Pokemon Go was launched in App Store and Android Google Play, we saw thousands of trainers gathering in Santa Monica beach pier, and it really moved us to tears because finally Pokemon came to our real world. Since that day, We have gone every night to play Pokemon Go, we want to catch all Pokemon and become the best Pokemon trainer.

That’s who we are, a group of guys who love Pokemon so much.

*The following pictures and videos are from 3D print prototype, the final product will be better than the prototype*

If Pokemon trainers want to catch Pokemon, they need to use their Pokeball. But there are two issues that anyone will come across about Pokeballs. 

First of all, the number of Pokeballs given is not unlimited, if you run out of Pokeballs, you need go to Pokestop to refill your Pokeball bag or you need to use real money to buy Pokeballs. 

The second problem is that throwing Pokeballs is not trivially easy, or say, tricky! Even if you can hit the Pokemon, it is not guaranteed that you can catch it. Chances are that you throw Pokeball to the wrong direction or miss the target somehow, you lose your Pokeball. Such incidents could happen to anyone, especially to the new trainers and they end up wasting a lot of Pokeballs.

Therefore, Pokeball is essential for every Pokemon trainer. Thus, trainers will definitely have more fun and catch more Pokemons if we can help them increase the success rate to hit Pokemons and save more Pokeballs. Here we go! I’d like to introduce our newly designed product; we call it Pokemon Go Straight Ball Thrower. 

After more than 100 hours of play time, we designed this very cool Straight Ball Thrower which can increase the chance hugely to throw the ball straightly and thus can amazingly increase the chance to catch Pokemon. Our product is very easy to set up, while it will not block any part of your phone screen (like Pokestop, game menu ), which is very important to us when we made the design. You can see and touch everywhere you want while using it. In order to make your thrower unique, we will provide three colors: red, yellow, and blue. These colors are so special to Pokemon fans~ We know it! If you have this straight ball thrower, your friend will envy you because when they are out of Pokeballs they can do nothing but let the Pokemon Go, but you will always have extra balls and higher chance to catch each Pokemon.
