Gotta Catch 'em All: Pokemon Go Hot Deals

So you want to be the very best? Like no one ever was?

Unless you've been hiding under a rock with no access to social media, you've probably heard about the newest craze: Pokemon Go. This mobile game has exploded for iOS and Android users -- it grew Nintendo's net worth by almost 8 billion dollars in a month. It has more daily active users than Candy Crush did at it's peak, and about 10% of all Android users in the United States have downloaded the game.

This game is seriously addictive and even more fun. BFAds HQ is situated nicely between several Pokestops, and some of us have been playing like crazy. Here are our Pokemon Go essentials to help you catch 'em all!

Make A Difference - We encourage you to consider downloading an app like CharityMiles or WoofTrax. These apps track your steps and donate to charity on your behalf -- for free! They're available for free on both iOS and Android. If you're already walking around, you might as well give back while you do it! CharityMiles allows you to pick a cause, like the Alzheimer's Association or the Wounded Warrior Project. WoofTrax donates to an animal shelter of your choice. Another easy way to give back is to take a plastic bag from your Plastic Bag Drawer (we all have one) and fill it up with litter as you walk. Easy as pie!

Check Your Data - To avoid paying crazy data overages, make sure that you know how much data you can afford to use on Pokemon Go. T-Mobile Customers can get a free year of data today while supplies last! In addition, use free Wi-Fi to your advantage. Companies like Starbucks offer free Wi-Fi all the time, so double check with your local businesses. You might even find a 2-in-1 Pokestop / Free Wi-Fi spot!

Klean Kanteen Classic Stainless Steel Bottle Water Bottle - You'll be walking around a lot trying to fill up your Pokedex. Staying hydrated is important! The last thing you want is to miss out on a Snorlax because you're too thirsty to stick around and catch him. We really like Klean Kanteen's Water Bottles, which are $15 to $20 at Amazon with free shipping when you use Amazon Prime.

KMASHI External Battery Power Bank External Battery - Even in Low Power Mode, walking around constantly using your GPS takes a toll on your phone's battery. Enter the external charger! This bad boy gives your battery percentage a boost, so you'll never have to worry about your phone dying in minute 15 of a Lure Module. This KMASHI External Battery / Power Bank is a Best Seller at Amazon.

Backpack - Walking around with a bunch of crap in your pockets is never fun, and purses can get in the way. Unless you want to go the way of the 80's and rock a fanny pack, a backpack is your best bet. Especially for longer Pokemon-hunting excursions, you can keep extra water, snacks, and your Ash Ketchum hat on your person at all times. Check out Academy Sports for over 70 backpacks under $40.

POKEMON ASH KETCHUM COSTUME Cosplay Hat Sensible Shoes - Nobody wants to walk around all day in a pair of gladiator sandals or flip-flops. Get yourself some walking shoes to keep your feet comfy. Finish Line is offering an extra 20% off Clearance Styles! If you don't want to spring for new shoes, consider some Dr. Scholl's inserts to make a pre-existing pair more Pokemon-friendly.

Snacks - In case of the hangries, we like to keep travel-friendly snacks on us when we are spending a day on the hunt. Favorites include fruit snacks, granola bars, fresh fruit, and our Graze snack packs.
