If you’ve been looking for a way to improve your Pokemon Go performance, you may have to wait a little longer for the perfect hack.

Remember the 3D printed Pokemon Go iPhone hack we told you about? The one which guides your finger so that you can throw your PokeBalls in perfectly straight lines with better results?

Well, it seems the nifty device went viral meaning that Jon Cleaver, Australian designer of the iPhone gadget, had to close his Etsy store in order to catch up with the demand from all the desperate Pokemon players.

With the gadget promising to improve your play dramatically, it’s no wonder the “PokeBall Aimer” Etsy shop had a influx of orders from across the globe.

If you’re disappointed you didn’t put in your order yet, don’t be too upset as Cleaver promises that the shop will reopen again soon.

He said on his Etsy page: “Don’t worry, I will be back in just a few days with more models designed, such as for Samsung phones, iPhones, and many more. Don’t hold back from sending me messages or requests for models.”

Alternatives? Here’s What You Can do in the Meantime

While Cleaver’s store is temporarily closed so he can catch up with the first batch of orders, there are other options for you if you’re desperate to get your hands on a Pokemon hack.

For example, if you have your own 3D printer, then make sure to download Cleaver’s design from MyMiniFactory where he has released the plans for free.

Another option is the very similar Perfect Aim design, which does the same trick but can be purchased from Shapeways. The hack was designed by Daphne Lameris and with this hack, you can even choose your favorite color and order it for just €9.37.
