Not sure when huntin’ squirrels became passé, but these dang millennials gotta have their Pokemon Go. Like Draw Something or Meerkat, this trend will probably be gone and forgotten in a couple weeks. Till then, here’s the stuff you’ll need in your Go-bag. It’s the same stuff you’d bring on a squirrel hunt.

01

A Good Pair of Shoes

You can’t round up Pikachus without the right pair of Pikashoes. Somethin’ air-light, cushiony, and vibrant. New Balance’s Fresh Foam Zante V2s fit like a dang sock, and they’re nearly as light.

02

Lots of Battery

Pokemon Go drains your battery in about 14 seconds. Double up yer huntin’ time with the Mophie Space Pack. It’ll also add more storage space for the rolodex of romantic liaisons you’ll meet on the hunt.

Non-Polarized Shades

Depending on your phone, that Charmadonder or Mabberblang will flat-out disappear if you wear polarized shades and tilt the screen sideways. These Ray-Ban Justin frames will have you lookin’ all Tom Cruise on the prowl, and you can get ‘em with non-polarized lenses.

04

Water Bottle

Hydration is your most important weapon on the hunt. Hydro Flask’s 21-ounce stainless-steel vacuum-insulated canteen keeps your water—and you—cool for a full day’s trackin’. Bonus: You can probably pour that water on the ground to attract a Magikarp.

Sunscreen

The thrill of the hunt is often accompanied by the singe of the skin. Apply some Banana Boat Spray-On Sunscreen.

A Good Pack

Can’t very well operate a mobile phone with sunblock-slick hands full of flasks, snacks, and whatnot. Stick it all in this TimBuk2 Messenger Bag, which also fits a laptop, a water bottle, and up to five squirrels.

An All-Terrain Hoverboard

Your fake-monster pursuit could take you anywhere: Ravines, junkyards, speed-bump factories, you name it. A Ko-X All-Terrain Electric Smart Scooter can handle any terrain.

A Vape

Hey, it’s a party. The Summit Vapium is rugged, so it’s waterproof in case you drop it in the river, and it’s protected against drops when you slam into a stranger on the sidewalk.
