Summer is right around the corner, and to celebrate, Pokémon Center is expanding its collection of diecast Poké Ball replicas. The latest edition of the Poké Ball is certain to transport you headlong into the days of sun and surf!
Initially introduced as part of the Hoenn Region in the 2002 video games Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire, the Dive Ball is a unique class of Poké Ball that makes it easier to catch Pokémon while surfing, fishing, or diving underwater. Featuring a distinctive aquatic colour scheme, the Dive Ball is a truly useful little item, and a must-have for those hoping to become the very best.
Hailing from The Wand Company — which kicked off this collection back in February with the launch of its Love Ball replica — the premium-quality Dive Ball features a detailed diecast metal shell complete with a high-gloss lacquer finish. Measuring nearly three inches in diameter and over a pound in weight, it is expertly crafted to properly mirror the item’s actual size and shape within the Pokémon Universe. Brimming with touch and proximity technology, the Dive Ball features a front button that lights up when you put your hand near it. In addition, pressing the front button, which becomes brighter when touched, initiates a Pokémon-catching light sequence.
As an added bonus, the Dive Ball includes a special matte-black display box with a polished Poké Ball icon on the lid and a buffed stainless-steel display ring hidden in the bottom of the box. Whether you prefer to use the display box or simply wish to mount it separately, this cool collectible has you covered!
