Five things to get before you Pokémon Go.

Not too many years ago, if you wanted to "catch 'em all", you just went to a gay bar. But, this week, Pokémon Go took us one step closer to living in a hive-mind society, and dispatched hoardes of people all over their neighborhoods in search of Squirtles, Pikachus and Luvdiscs. With more than 15 million daily users (more than Twitter!), Pokémon Go is kind of a big thing right now. So before you venture out to snag that Charmander, here are five items we thought might help you catch 'em all or, more likely, some:

1. Pokémon Eevee Grey Snapback, $20
This is one way to keep the sun from your eyes and Pikachu on your mind.

2. Fendi Buggies Backpack, $1,500
OK, so not officially Pokémon merch, but you're an adult.

3. Hüma Chia Energy Gels, $54 (box of 24)
It's important to stay energized and nourished and these, for some reason, seemed adequately Pokémon-ish.

4. Cygnett Chargeup Sport Portable Powerbank, $40
Nothing would be worse than your phone dying as you tromp through your neighbor's garden in search of an Ivysaur. This nifty powerbank will charge up to three devices at once.

5. FlipBelt Reflective Belt, $33
Great for going out on a nighttime quest and not being run over by cars.
