When it comes to catching Pokémon, the basic idea is to catch them all. However, when it comes to love, there's only one — that perfect someone — that players want to capture.
Now, Pokémon lovers can celebrate that love in a nerdy new way: with special Pokémon bridal jewelry: because nothing says "I love you" like "Pikachu, I choose you."
With Pokémon GO now one of the hottest mobile games ever to hit smartphones, and people out there doing crazy — and often dangerous — things just to capture creatures out there in the real world, it's likely that the Poké craze will eventually leak into the traditional marriage ceremony. Imagine a bride walking down the aisle with smartphone in hand, searching for that elusive Evee, or the groom waiting for her as he checks the wedding venue for something more legendary.
That special day is now even more extraordinary, though, because couples can say their vows and trade Pokémon rings, declaring to the world that they love each other at least as much as they love capturing creatures with Poké Balls and taking them to gyms to battle each other.
This jewelry concept may seem tacky at first, but the pieces are actually quite beautiful. Check out this gorgeous Pikachu ring done in silver and 18k gold. It retails for around $984.
There's also this electric Pokémon engagement platinum ring with a beautiful diamond, which retails for around $1,169.
This his and hers wedding band set is silver and gold and retails for around $273 per ring.
The collection also includes other pieces of jewelry, including an adorable Pikachu necklace and a Gengar ring. Of course, each piece comes in its own box with the Pokémon logo, except for the first 400 buyers, who will get their jewelry in a Poké Ball gift case.
The company who designed the jewelry, U-Treasure by K. Uno, will also customize any piece for an additional price.
Because wedding days should reflect who a couple is and if they're trainers, what better way to share their special moment than with their favorite thing? It's also likely that many couples will pair up after playing Pokémon GO, especially considering fans are getting out there and searching for creatures, which results in them meeting up with new people.
Pokémon GO just released last week, but since its launch, it's quickly become one of the most-played mobile games of all time, as well as one of the most-discussed topics on social media.
