Third Pokémon Smart Device Collaboration Launched by CASETiFY
CASETiFY is a global lifestyle brand established in LA that has enjoyed hugely popularity with celebrities and influences around the world for their services that enable you to customise your digital devices from smartphones to Apple Watches and more.
The company launched its “Day & Night” themed collaboration with Pokémon back in May. The third collection in the line has finally been unveiled which will be released worldwide on August 15 at 10:00pm (JST).
1st Collaboration: https://www.moshimoshi-nippon.jp/206562
2nd Collaboration: https://www.moshimoshi-nippon.jp/229807
For the third collection, CASETiFY has New York and London-based artist duo Craig & Karl. Titled “The Icons by Craig & Karl,” the new collection incorporates the two artist’s signature style and shines the spotlight on four Pokémon―Pikachu, Charmander, Bulbasaur and Squirtle―and three Poké Balls.
Pokémon Trainers out there can choose from CASETiFY’s signature Impact Case, the DTLA Case, and for this third collaboration, the Floaty Glitter Case, and there’s a bunch of cool tech accessories too with limited-edition designs. You also have the option to put your name on your case.
Back when the second drop launched on July 10, CASETiFY set up a waiting list which gave people priority access to purchase these limited edition items before they sold out. The waiting list surpassed a whopping 90,000 people. The waiting list has returned for the third drop which you can sign up to right now.
As a fan of the Pokémon franchise, Craig Redman of the artist duo spoke about how enjoyable it was to be able to collaborate with Pokémon on this project and implement their signature style. He also praised the customisable aspect of the collection which he said can bring you closer to Pokémon.
This marks the final drop of the CASETiFY & Pokémon Day & Night collection which you can also catch at pop-up shops in Tokyo, London, Paris, Los Angeles, and the Landmark shopping mall in Hong Kong.

Pokémon Design Manholes to Begin Appearing All Across Japan
The Pokémon Company has announced its plans to begin placing more Poké Lid manholes across Japan. To date there have been appearances of them in Ibusuki in Kagoshima Prefecture and within 13 towns and villages of Iwate Prefecture, but that number is about to skyrocket.
Hokkaido, Fukushima Prefecture, Tottori Prefecture and Kanagawa Prefecture are all participating in the Pokémon Local Acts programme which will see an increase of Poké Lids this fall and winter. But it doesn’t stop there as there are plans to expand the number even further going into 2020. This is the first nationwide manhole design project of its kind to ever hit Japan.
Each lid features completely original Pokémon designs making each individual one the only one in the world. The Pokémon Company plans to make each one of them PokéStops for Pokémon GO in the future.
In line with the upcoming Pikachu Outbreak event in the Minato Mirai area of Yokohama, which is taking place from August 6, five Pikachu manhole covers will be placed around Yokohama on August 5. Only one of the designs has been revealed as pictured above, and this one will be placed in front of Sakuragichō Station. The remaining four will only be placed for a limited time―until September 1 this year―around Minato Mirai. The locations will be announced on the official website.
Most of the Poké Lids are cast iron and are carefully handcrafted by artisans in a factory in Saga Prefecture. The use of craft iron allows room for intricate detail from the thickness of the lines to the angles and colours.
Make sure to be on the lookout for Poké Lids when visiting in Japan in the future. Their locations will be posted on the official website once they have been placed.

Tokyo’s Craft Chocolate Shop nel Releases Cacao Kintoki Shaved Ice Desserts
nel craft chocolate tokyo, a craft chocolate shop located in Nihonbashihamacho, Tokyo, released two chocolate shaved ice desserts last Wednesday for the hot summer season. The desserts are also being sold at Saryo Tsukikage, a restaurant inside the hot spring ryokan Yuen Bettei Daita in Setagaya.

Cacao kintoki is a type of shaved ice made with specially-selected cacao beans from Vietnam. It uses a ‘bean to bar’ method where the shaved ice is made from scratch, roasting the beans fresh to create the dessert.

The white cacao version is made by combining with in-house white chocolate. It also comes with an Okinawan passion fruit and cacao pulp sauce, resulting in a sour kick and refreshing taste.
The open-air baths at Yuen Bettei Daita
A special matcha version of this shaved ice can also be enjoyed while bathing in the open-air baths at Yuen Bettei Daita. It’s made with nel’s homemade white chocolate as well as dark chocolate, cacao pulp, and specially-selected yame matcha from Shimokita Chaen Ōyama, a cafe in Setagaya.
