Pocket Pikachu Evolves to Smartwatch Form On Pebble

Posted by Tim Latshaw

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?

i dont get it, what is this? it just looks like a little leather wallet strapped to his wrist with a picture of the pikachu feeding game thingy from the 90's on it.
am i missing something or is that it? or does it open up or something and we just really need more pictures?

this would be neat. i remember taken my pokemon pikachu everywhere with me, including school. if i wasn't running i would just shake it. that would also be awesome to put on your phone or Nintendo 3DS.

Perhaps they could do something like this as a step-up from the Pokewalker they added in with HGSS.

I'm not going to lie, when scrolling through the homepage I though I caught a flash of a Nonary Game bracelet and got really exited for news.
Oh well :'(
