Hello there!

Well, for my 19th birthday, my best friend gave me Pokemon Platinum. So, I suppose he is the inspiration for this craft  Smiley

I needed a new DS Case since my old one was getting a bit beat up (it was an old school Nintendo Controller, seen here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=265880.msg2987079#msg2987079), and with my brand new game, what else could be more fitting than a Pokedex?!

With a bit of research, I found out how the inside of the Pokedex looked like, and with a bit of scrapped pieces of colored felt and a lot of patience, here is the result:



Tee-hee the "screen" of the Pokedex acts as a game holder  Tongue



The front looks a bit plain, so I am contemplating either finding a trademark patch of the "Pokemon" title or making it out of felt, but we'll see  Grin



Hope you enjoyed this! Comments & criticism are always appreciated!  Cheesy

I'm also not a fan of hand held games, but I love the look of this project.  It looks like you took a little time and did a great job.  Very resourceful.
