The problem with the Apple 5c isn't the plastic -- it's actually quite lovely. The problem is committing to one of its five vibrant colours. The brilliant George Michael Brower makes the decision easy, with a free Pokémon twist.
It's no longer a choice of colours. Now it's a choice of Pokémon allegiance. In considering an iPhone 5c, I was originally leaning towards pink, but were I to acquire one now, Squirtle blue would be the only way to go.
Mr. Brower has kindly made the phone wallpapers and printable stickers available for free. Now all I need is an iPhone 5c, and I'm set.
