Pocket Pikachu Evolves to Smartwatch Form On Pebble

Tetris, of course, is also available

Were you ever playing with your Pocket Pikachu (aka Pokémon Pikachu) in the late ‘90s and thought, “Gee, I wish I was able to wear this on my wrist?”

Well honestly, you probably could’ve found some way to attach a band to the thing. But now, thanks to 21st Century technology, you can wear a digitized version of your digital pet on your watch!

As the Kickstarter-funded superwatch Pebble trickles out to buyers, Polygon reports that developers have already started creating apps through a recently released software development kit.

Steven Staff created the Pocket Pikachu app. He either has a good idea of nostalgic gadgets people would love to fiddle with again or this is a long overdue memorial to a little buddy lost after one too many back-pocket rides in the washing machine.

A Tetris clone called Pebblis has also been designed for the Pebble. That’s cool and all, but we all know the next logical step to a Pocket Pikachu on your watch is a fully functional C-Gear, right?

What other games or devices would you like to see in smartwatch form?
