Pokeball Grinder Review
A Must-Have for Every Pokemon Master?
The market tends to provide for just about everyone from those that can afford to purchase gold-plated products to those who are working with a far more limited budget. For those who don't have the cash or the inclination to drop serious money on a shredder, you have two choices: either pick up a grinder card or drop some short money on the Pokemon Grinder.
What we're talking about is the Pokeball grinder. It's not going to set the stoner world on fire, but it will do a decent job of providing you with small amounts of evenly ground herb you can use for a variety of applications. And unlike with the grinder card, there’s little chance of making a mess while you grind.
Pokeball Grinder Design
Whenever you plumb the lower end of the price spectrum, you're going to find less than stellar design. That's true for suits and furniture, and it's also true for grinders. In this case, you're dealing with a Pokeball designed to look like a ball from a video game. Some folks, however, are not going to have a problem with that. In fact, they'll embrace the campy quirkiness of it all.
Those individuals will likely find the size (1.5 inches) and weight (0.3 ounces) to be just right and will appreciate its colorful profile and the offbeat circular design; which is a stark departure from the standard cylindrical design of most products.
The Pokeball herb grinder is proof positive that you don't have to spend a lot to get a lot. While the outside is made of hardened plastic the inside is actually made from a sturdy, heavy-duty zinc alloy and sports a field of sharp, effective teeth that make short work of all but the toughest herb.
The top is held in place during the grinding process by magnets that help ensure no lost product. Since the Pokeball has no screen (or kief chamber), the design is ultra-simple and doesn't require any other materials besides the outer shell and product materials already mentioned.
While the Pokeball herb grinder is not going to challenge the grinding perfection of some of the high-end shredders out there the fact is it's a consistent step up from the shredder card and, because of its compact size, it's almost as easy to take with you. The Pokeball's performance is consistent enough to make it more than worth the investment although, because there's no kief chamber, everything winds up in your doobie or bowl.
Also, while you won't get silky smooth shredding action in a low-cost appliance like this, it's much smoother than you likely expect it to be.
Pokeball Special Features
There aren’t many features with the Pokeball, although it does come with a hardened case for storage and you can add a kief catcher as a separate purchase.

Is It Worth the Price?
Pokeball Grinders are not going to break anyone's bank, and that's their primary appeal. For less than the cost of the large pizza you're going to order to satisfy your munchies, you can have this tough little shredder to take with you camping, partying or to the festival.
What We Liked
- The compact size - Some shredders are so big there's just no practical way to take them with you when you go out. The Poke Ball Grinder, however, will fit in the leg pocket of your cargo pants.
- The grind quality - We never expect much from discounted products, but the Pokeball grinder surprised us with its consistent grind quality.
What We Didn’t Like
- Design - It's not enough to recommend against the Pokeball because the end product speaks for itself. However, we'd prefer a more mature design. On the other hand, perhaps you're a Pokemon fan or just don't care much what your shredder looks like. If that's you, you'll love this Pokemon grinder.
Pokeball Grinder: The Bottom Line
The Pokeball Grinder is the little product that could. It's remarkably tough thanks to the tough zinc alloy grinding chamber; there's hardly any catch as you grind your weed down to fluffy usefulness and the price means you have plenty of cash left over for more of your favorite herb.
So keep your grinder cards, we’ll take the Pokeball Grinder. This is a recommend from us.
