This iPhone sleeve makes catching Pokemon a doddle

If your efforts to amass a veritable army of Pokemon are often undone by your errant aim with the Pokeballs, there’s an iPhone case that can get you back on track.

The case, created by John Cleaver, means there can be no mistakes when attempting to land the often evasive critters while playing Pokemon Go.

The sleeve has a shallow trench offering a perfect path by guiding your finger in a straight line towards the target.

This ensures you’ll shoot straight and nab whatever shows up in your augmented world, without wasting your ball supplies.

Better still, you don’t even have to buy the Pokeball Aimer, you can obtain the plans for free and have it 3D printed today (via Gizmodo).

Cleaver says the case only with iPhone 6/6s models for now, but has promised to adapt the plans if enough folks are interested.
