You don’t have to spend too much time in our home to know we’re a Pokemon-loving family. In fact, we’ve all got our own decks and battle each other regularly, so it probably goes without saying that we discuss all things Pokemon pretty often. That’s how this list of Pokemon gift ideas came to be.
Our Favorite Pokemon Gift Ideas
Some ideas on the list go along with the game itself, while some are items inspired by the game. Also worth noting, my 13 year old son and 7 year old daughter helped me make this list of Pokemon gift ideas. Not only are these ideas kid approved, they’re kid-picked!
Regardless of what you’re looking for, you’ll find something here for your favorite Pokemon fan.
1. Pokemon Cards
If you’ve got Pokemon fans in your home, chances are they’ve got Pokemon starter sets and are itching to get their hands on new cards.
We love these Golden Groundhog card lots for adding to our decks when we’re not looking for anything in particular, but we stick with the Pokemon Tins when our kids are looking to add specific cards to their collections.
2. Pokemon Storage Solutions
Speaking of Pokemon cards, there comes a point when you’ve got enough cards that it’s hard to actually find what you’re looking for in order to build your deck. That’s where card storage solutions like this Pokedex-style Storage Album and this waterproof card holder come into the picture.
3. Pokemon Clothes
Your kiddos may also want to show their Pokemon love through their clothes. Here are some fun clothing-related Pokemon gift ideas:
- Pajamas like a Snorlax nightgown or a pajama set with several characters make fun gifts.
- Pokeball shirts, shirts showcasing favorite Pokemon like this Eevee evolutions shirt, and this classic Pikachu shirt are all good choices.
- Pokemon dresses are also cute and fun! My daughter has this Pikachu dress on her wishlist right now, but this Bulbasaur dress is another fun option!
- Don’t forget the footwear! There are tons of cute Pokemon sock choices out there. 😉
4. Pokemon Toys and Games
You also can’t go wrong with fun Pokemon puzzles or video games like the newly released Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield for Nintendo Switch. True story, my kids were so excited about the new Pokemon Sword game that they combined their savings and bought in themselves.
Speaking of Nintendo Switch, this waterproof Pokeball sling bag is a great way to safely travel with your Switch, games, and controllers.
5. Pokemon Accessories
Accessories can also make great Pokemon gifts for your kiddos. My son loves this Jigglypuff cap and Ash Ketchem cap, while my daughter swoons over these Pokeball earrings, this Pokeball purse, and this Pokemon charm bracelet.
6. Pokemon Books
Don’t forget the books! Pokemon book sets, Look and Find books, and How to Draw books are all fun to have on hand. Also worth noting, we all refer to our Super Deluxe Essential Handbook when researching Pokemon and their evolutions.
7. Detective Pikachu Merch
Looking for some gift inspiration based on the 2019 live action Pokemon movie? Here are some ideas to consider:
- Detective Pikachu on Blu-Ray DVD
- Detective Pikachu 1000 piece puzzle
- Detective Pikachu special edition card sets
- Mega Construx building set
Want to know more about the movie itself? Use the Plugged In review to get an idea of what to expect as far as the premise, language, and violence are concerned.
8. Pokemon Decor
9. Pokemon Plush
Both of my kids have always been obsessed with Pokemon plush characters; chances are your Pokemon fan will love them too. From this 3 pack with Charmander, Squirtle, and Bulbasaur to this posable Mr. Mime to a plush Pokeball, plush toys can be lots of fun. 🙂
10. Pokemon-themed Games
Sure, Pokemon itself is a game, but Pokemon-themed games can also make fun gifts for kids who can’t get enough of Pokemon. Choose from Pokemon Uno, a 20 Questions-like Pokemon Trainer Guess Game, and Pokemon Monopoly. In fact, you’ve even got options when it comes to the Monopoly sets: there’s a Johto edition and Kanto edition.
