Gym Every Day
When a gamer says that they go to the gym, there’d a subtle understanding that the gym in reference doesn’t feature treadmills, cross-fits or free weights, but poke balls, pocket monsters and of course a shiny badge! For those not in the know, this swanky tank top will do just the trick, and on the off chance that you have built up massive arms from throwing those pokeballs, they’ll get shown off too! Win-win.
