20 Perfect Presents for Pokémon Lovers

Pokémon, Pokedex, Poke Ball – if you’re new to the decades-old franchise, it can get a little overwhelming to suddenly be tasked to gift someone with specific knick-knacks from this strange world filled with thousands of adorable animated monsters. If you have a Pokémon fan in your house, you’ll need to keep reading this list of 20 perfect presents forPokémon lovers!

Don’t fret – even Pokémon veterans sometimes find it hard to go shopping for their Pokémon Trainer buddies! No matter what your level of passion of the game, this list is here to help you shop for the perfect present for your Pokemon-obsessed friend.

Gift-Giving Tips for Your Pokémon Lover Friend

Here are some tips for choosing the perfect Pokémon-themed presents!

1 – You don’t have to know every single Pokémon

The Pokemon franchise can be intimidating because there’s just so much to discover in it! But if you want to indulge a Pokemon lover friend, you’re not expected to know everything about the world of Pokemon to show them that you care.

You don’t have to memorize all the PPokémon in the Pokedex (or their types, stats, strengths and weaknesses, evolution chains, and natural habitats). You don’t have to know all the words to the show’s theme song. You don’t even have to have Pokemon Go installed on your phone! You care, that’s enough. There’s no such thing as a Poke poser!

2 – But it would be nice if you did your homework!

It would be appreciated if you at least listened to them enough to know who Ash is, or what a Poke Ball does, or which one of those little yellow monsters is Pikachu. Who knows, if you delve into this immensely popular and meaty franchise with an open mind, you might see what’s got people hooked on it – and you might go head over heels for it yourself!

3 – It’s still the thought that counts

As with any other type of gift, you don’t have to splurge and get them the most expensive, extravagant, officially-licensed Pokemon merch just to impress them (not even the ones included on this list!). The fact that you took the time to pay attention to what your friend loves will already be significantly valued. We swear this on Pikachu’s cute little heart.

charmander costume

Buy it for: Pokemon slumber parties, Halloween, or as fancy pajamas!

Onesies are gimmicky costumes that you get a lot of mileage out of – on the one hand, they’re eye-catching and perfect for parties, but on the other, they are warm and comfortable loungewear for bumming around the house on lazy days.

The hood is embroidered with realistic, good quality stitching to make up Charmander’s face. The onesie ends in wrist cuffs and ankle cuffs so your hands and feet can stick out as normal (or you can buy fake claws and paws to complete the outfit!) It even has a fire tail!

Kigurumi offers a slew other Pokemon designs from the site: Bulbasaur, Pikachu (and its evolutions), various Eevee evolutions, Snorlax, Mewtwo, Chespin, Arcanine, Cubone, and many, many others from various Pokemon games.

The socks come in a set of five, featuring Jigglypuff, Snorlax, Psyduck, Pikachu, and Slowpoke – that’s a different Pokemon for every weekday! Alternatively, they are stretchy and fit a range of foot sizes in case you’d like to split the set between the rest of your Pokemon-loving family or friends.

bulbasaur planter

Buy it for: Your buddy who’s great with Ground and Grass Type Pokemon…and flowers.

If you’ve got someone who’s got the earth vibe down pat, gift them this Bulbasaur succulent planter!

Shaped with ceramic into Bulbasaur’s features, the planter has ample room in the back for a tiny cactus (we’ve heard the flowering ones nailed the Bulbasaur look best!) and a hole at the base to drain excess water and allow the soil to breathe.

The mint green color is cute as it is, providing a minimalist look to one of the most beloved Pokemon out there. Yet it hasn’t been unheard of for artsy owners to paint Bulbasaur’s distinctive details on to make it look like the real thing – the ceramic takes well to decorating too!

And once you’ve transferred a succulent onto the planter’s back, it completes the Bulbasaur look in the most adorable way imaginable.

Still, this isn’t just a present for the budding gardener. If your friend isn’t gifted with a green thumb and just really likes Bulbasaur, this little guy works just as well as a trinket or key holder. Remember, it’s the thought that counts!

Be the very best like no one ever was

Pokemon is a challenging game, but gift-giving doesn’t have to be! You don’t have to know every single thing about the world of Pokemon (hey, we can bet your friend doesn’t know everything about it too!) but it’s enough that you acknowledged this significant thing in their life, and tried to learn more about it.

Hopefully, this gift guide for Pokemon lovers filled with diverse offerings has been of help to you in choosing presents for friends with varying tastes, and perhaps, encouraged you to try Pokemon out as well)! If nothing else, at least you’re the very best gift-giver – like no one ever was.
