3dp_ten3dpthings_pokemongo_bannerUnless you’ve been living in a shack in the middle of nowhere on a mountain under a rock for the last week and so you’ve most likely heard of Pokémon Go. If you’ve been spared, and so allow me to explain. Pokémon Go is an augmented reality smartphone game that encourages players to in fact leave their house and explore the city around them looking for wild Pokémon to capture. Players can train their Pokémon to battle other players at Pokémon Gyms, and meet up at Pokéstops to recharge and perhaps find a few surprises. Gyms and Pokéstops are scattered around cities, in local businesses, parks and landmarks, and the game has unexpectedly forced hundreds of thousands of gamers off their sofas and out into the real world.

To say that the game has been a good results may be a certainly formidable-bodied understatement. Not only has the game become talked about with approximately everyone, it has begined to have real world effects on the local businesses that have been lucky adequate to be Pokémon Gyms and Pokéstops. It has become so talked about that there has been real estate ads for houses that tout their proximity to Gyms, Pokéstops and high concentrations of rare Pokémon. Bars and local businesses are hosting Pokémon Go-themed actuallyts and there have actually been local businesses so overwhelmed with Pokémon trainers that they’ve had to limit who can seek Pokémon within their keeps (mostly noting that Pokémon are for customers only).

And if all of this wasn’t fun or chaotic adequate, a clever Redditor has discovered a way to donate players who visit Gyms and Pokéstops a special surprise. Reddit user bmemike has been 3D printing little Pokémon versions and hiding them for players to discover. I ponder the thought is a excellent way to have fun with a game that everyone appears to be playing and in addition commence new folks to the wonders of 3D printing. So for this week I collected a bunch of 3D printable-bodied versions ideal for leaving around for other players to find, or local businesses to print out and donate out as prizes or donateaways. Here are Ten 3D Printable-bodied Pokémon Go Things:
