pokemon toys

franchise as toyetic as Nintendo’s Pokemon series? Hundreds of adorable (well, mostly) battling monsters, each one with its own personality. Sure, you’ve got the big names like Pikachu and Charizard, but there are hundreds of other pocket monsters with dedicated fan bases. Naturally, there are tons of super awesome toys for all ages, from super-detailed action figures to adorable plushes. Here’s our rundown of the best Pokemon toys you can get.

Brock, Geodude & Vulpix PVC Figures

Geodude is real, and strong, and he’s my friend. Japanese toymaker Megahouse has produced a whole line of cool PVC figurines of the Pokemon anime’s main cast, both humans and monsters. For the money, our favorite is the one with perennial sidekick and wanna-be ladies man Brock and his rocky companion. Throw in a charming little foxlike Vulpix and you have a trio of characters that will look awesome on your toy shelf. Note that these are mostly non-poseable, but you can turn Vulpix’s head.

144 Pokemon Figures

You know, we’re not sure that this cavalcade of small plastic Pocket Monsters is a legit licensed product, but sometimes you have to bend the rules a little bit. And if you really want to fill up your Pokedex and raise an army of creatures at a decent price, this is the best deal on the market. Each figure measures 3/4 of an inch or a little higher, so they’re basically like the kind you’d get from a decent vending machine. Sorry if you have a particular favorite Pokemon — the assortment is random, and the quality isn’t museum-level. But it’s nearly 150 Pokemon for a little over twenty bucks. C’mon.


Funko Pop Pikachu

The little yellow electric mouse somehow managed to become one of the most iconic cartoon characters of the modern era, and there’s loads of Pikachu merch out there. Everett, Washington-based Funko Pop of course got on the bandwagon with a Target-exclusive version of the little bugger, and it’s a charming and cute sculpt with a pair of pointy ears that stick way up. This one is getting harder and harder to find so if you’re building a Pop collection you might want to act fast.

S.H. Figuarts Ash Ketchum Action Figure
S.H. Figuarts Ash Ketchum Action Figure

The protagonist of the Pokemon anime, cheerful young Ash Ketchum is motivated to be the very best, like no one ever was. With his trusty Pikachu by his side, he challenges gym leaders and contends with Team Rocket in episode after episode (plus the movies). Bandai’s S.H. Figuarts line is famous for clever articulation and accurate design, and this five inch Ash is no different. The figure is extremely poseable, and comes with two heads (one with cap, one without), a mount so Pikachu can ride on his shoulder, a Pokeball and more
