If you played Pokemon Sword or Shield, you’ll get the Ball Guy Rotom Phone Case. The standout NPC from Gen VIII took over Pokemon memes for a few months after release, and now you can immortalize him with a phone case that bears his visage on the back.

If you have a save file for 2021’s Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, you’ll get a retro, inspired Rotom Phone Case with a pixel Pikachu decorating the back. It may not be the most complex case in the collection, but it is nostalgic.

Pokemon Legends Arceus

Earlier this year, Pokemon Legends Arceus introduced a phone for players to use: the Arc Phone. While you can’t take the Arc Phone with you to Scarlet and Violet, you can remember it with this Rotom Phone Case that mimics the shape and design of your last mobile device.
