This goes without saying: whether or not you’re on your way to becoming a Pokemon master, every Pokemon fan (game and/or anime) needs his/her own pokeball. Etsy shop owner Holly Starlight makes customized pokeballs in the form of plush toys, starting at $7.

You can’t get the pokeballs without also getting the gym badges. Etsy shop owner Kris Snow sells a variety of Pokemon gym badges. You can buy them individually starting at $3 or as a set (prices vary).
