The Pokemon brand’s newest Pokemon game, Pokemon Sun and Moon, is the first of its kind to use silicone moldings.
In this new, plastic-filled, molding-like form, Pokemon has managed to pull off a stunning feat.
A silicone mold can be made of just about any material, from PVC pipe to plastic, and it can be molded into any shape, including rounded objects, such as Pokeballs, or round-shaped objects, like balls.
The only difference is that the mold is made from silicone, which is harder to melt and harder to break down than most plastic.
“It’s like a kind of plastic,” said Jennifer Naylor, a plastic expert at the University of Texas at Austin.
“So when you get it out of the mold, you don’t have to worry about melting it down.
You don’t need to heat it or cool it, or whatever.”
And because the mold has a clear, opaque surface, it doesn’t need a vacuum seal or any kind of coating to keep it clean.
“We think it’s pretty awesome,” said Naylor.
“You can use it as a mold, and then it can also be used as a pedestal, a shelf, and a shelf that can hold other materials.
It’s just the kind of thing that we’d love to see more companies be able to do.”
