The buds are also included in the charming charging case.
For the Galaxy Buds 2 wireless earphones, Samsung has produced a Pokémon-themed cover. The case resembles a miniature Poké Ball and functions as a shell that wraps around the normal Galaxy Buds 2 charging case.
A Poké Ball charging case, a set of Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 wireless earphones, and a collection of Pokémon stickers representing a whole bunch of Gen 1 Pokémon like Pikachu, Lapras, Gengar, and more are available on the South Korean tech giant’s online store (thanks, Gizmodo).
Naturally, this adds weight to the charging case, and the Poké Ball’s rounded shape will certainly cause a visible bump in your pocket. We can’t think of a finer accessory for a Pokémon lover who is constantly out and about playing Pokémon Go. Especially if you never leave home without your music.
A difficult-to-find accessory
However, good luck obtaining this useful Poké Ball attachment. It’s now only available for 134,000 won (about $109 / £89 / AU$149) on Samsung’s South Korean shop. The case, buds, and a selection of stickers are all included in the set.
Unfortunately, the case is not available separately for a lower price, which is a shame because it is also compatible with the Samsung Galaxy Buds Live and Galaxy Buds Pro. As a result, this Poké Ball case package offers the best value to first-time Galaxy Buds consumers (or those searching for a replacement pair).
However, at the time of writing, the bundle appears to be sold out. The Poké Ball case was in high demand among Pokémon lovers in South Korea. We can only hope that the package makes its way to the west so that Pokémon fans all across the world can purchase this admittedly cool accessory set.
That would be fantastic, especially since the Pokémon series is on fire this year. Not only has Pokémon Go proven to be extremely popular, but Pokémon Legends Arceus, which was released on Nintendo Switch in January and featured a semi-open-world, exploration-based style, gave the brand a much-needed breath of fresh air.
Furthermore, Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, the next additions in the mainline series, are set to be released in late 2022. These will introduce a Spanish-inspired setting and the ninth generation of Pokémon to the brand, and we can’t wait to get our hands on them.
