If you love to catch Pokémon but want to do more than bury your nose in your smartphone and swipe your finger then someone has found a solution for you. Joerg Sprave is a German and also a Pokémon enthusiast who has made the Pokémon catching experience even more fun! How you ask? Watch the video below:


As you can see he has created a pump gun that hunts Pokémon and can shoot real, solid Pokéballs at targets e.g. a human-sized Pokémon in the video. This way you can play Pokémon Go effectively and with multiple players. The Pokémon gun uses rubber bands to send the Pokéball in a projectile towards the Pokémon targets. The action is pretty simple and the majority of the readers could easily recreate the gun and the explosive Pokéball. Perhaps the most costly component of the device is the iPhone that Joerg uses for taking an aim.
