What’s the first step to being the best, like no one ever was? Think hard. Nope, it’s not heading over to Professor Oak’s place to pick up your very own Squirtle. It isn’t heading to the PokeMart to buy a whole bunch of Pokeballs. It isn’t even giving Mama Ketchum a peck on the cheek before heading out on a grand adventure to become the best in the Indigo League. Give up yet? It’s the hat! Every great Pokemon adventure begins by putting on a hat, bright and early in the morning.
That’s right, if you’re going to head out into the world to catch Pokemon, then you’re going to need this Ash Ketchum snapback hat. It doesn’t have any effect on the Pokmon you try to catch, so don’t expect that rare Pikachu to stop in its tracks when it sees you wearing this hat. You can, however, expect to feel awesome as you flip it backwards and toss a Pokeball at an unsuspecting chipmunk in your neighborhood.
