Ordinarily I would say that a Poke Ball would be an absolutely terrible way to slice pizza. I mean, it's like trying to slice your pizza with a basketball. You're just going to mash everything up. However, a Poke Ball does have the spirit of a good pizza cutter when you think about it. The shape makes it ideal for hiding a blade and maintaining a firm grip. So, this particular Poke Ball slimmed down, sharpened its skills and is now living the dream. Behold, the official Poke Ball Pizza Cutter.

From ThinkGeek:

Whether you prefer your slice to come from the cheese half or the pepperoni half (with that little black olive dividing line), we can all agree that both Pokémon and pizza are awesome, right? And that we could use more of both in our lives?

The next time you're tempted by fresh-baked dough topped with tangy tomato sauce and bubbling cheese, reach for this Poké Ball Pizza Cutter. Pop the white cover off to reveal your cutting tool. Pop it back on to stick it in your bag to bring with you to your favorite pizza place. With a blade decorated with silhouettes of the original partner Pokémon, it's dishwasher safe. Be sure to keep up your training; you never know when you're going to have to battle for a slice!
