Whether you're hosting a hunting session, or just need some energy before your next big PokéGym battle against your local middle schoolers, this easy snack only takes a few minutes to prepare. (And you're sure to score major cool points with all your nerd friends.)

What You'll Need

Head to the grocery store — and keep your eyes open for a Bulbasaur in the produce section! — to pick up a few Pokéball musts.

  • crackers
  • mozzarella cheese slices
  • big beef tomato
  • large pitted black olives (use sliced to save time)

How to Make 'Em

You don't need to be a culinary genius to create this masterpiece — all you need are layering skills.

  1. Cut a piece of cheese into the same size and shape as the cracker.
  2. Place the cheese on top of the cracker.
  3. Cut the tomato into 1/4 inch slices, then cut a slice in half to create a semi-circle. Put one semi-circle of tomato on top of the cheese on the top half of the cracker.
  4. Take a tiny piece of cheese and stick it on the back of a sliced olive.
  5. Set the olive in the middle of your soon-to-be Pokéball and line the middle with more cut-up pieces of olive.

And there you have it! You're officially a Pokémon (snack) Master.
