Does anyone know where to order a custom pokeball?

Postby gleed99 » Sun Nov 12, 2017 7:56 pm

I am interested in getting a specific type of ball to use with my costume for this year, but the kinds I am looking for are difficult to find. I am hoping for something more solid than plush because I want to squeeze it in my hand and have it resist it a little bit. It's a stress thing in battle I guess. Luxury ball or a nest ball is what I'm specifically thinking of. Any input is appreciated!

I hear there's a guy named Kurt, if you bring him some Apricorns he might be able to do something for you :lol:

On a more serious note, Etsy is always a good place to start for something like this.
I'm also pretty sure Volucris got some custom balls made for his Grass gym a couple of years ago. You could send him a PM to find out where he got them if he doesn't see this thread

Would something like this work? It has a clip* molded onto it, which makes it less comfortable to hold and less "realistic", but it's hard plastic and can store things inside it.

*The clip is, unfortunately, BS. I tried wearing the Master Ball version to SDCC and the damn thing kept falling off my breeder cosplay.

I've been dabbling a bit in 3D modeling and printing. I might be able to get something put together for you. That said, I do use an external service for anything I've had 3D printed (buying a 3D printer is not cheap) and I'd probably need to toy around with different material possibilities, but I might be able to lend a hand. Considering you were going to be shopping around anyway, I'm sure we could work something out if you wanted to go that route.

You might be on to a fine business idea here, Gleed. I have not heard of any business that makes custom pokeballs and I like the idea.

If you want to go the 3D print route, there are numerous free model files (of varying quality) available online, which covers most of the standard in-game balls. You can either print them in parts in the appropriate colors, or paint them.

I've printed a few, but to be honest, considering the material cost, and the labor involved, I would generally say that it's probably easier to just look up pre-fabricated toys on eBay.
