Pokémon Moleskin notebook - Snorlax edition

Want to get a present that can double up as something practical? Evolve from a bog standard notebook with this Pokémon-themed Moleskin notebook from Amazon. It comes with a hardback cover, ruled pages and a ruled bookmark. 

We've picked out the Snorlax edition, but if you'd like something a little more flashy, there's also a Jigglypuff edition

Pokémon Sword and Shield

The latest full Pokémon game has now made the move to the Nintendo Switch, complete with new characters, a new region and of course, new Pokémon.

Explore the Galar region (based heavily off of the UK) as you battle your way through the gym stadiums, wild area and Dynamax Pokémon to become the very best like no one ever was. To find out more about the game, then read our round-up of the Sword and Shield news

Replica Ash Ketchum cap

There have been many trainers in the Pokémon universe (you included probably) but the most famous of them all is Ash Ketchum, the kid who stormed onto the scene in ’97 with Pikachu in tow and took over the world. You can ape his oh-so pre-millennium style with this cap, which is great for fancy dress parties. And for playing Pokémon, obviously.

Pokémon Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!

You don't have to leave behind the Kanto region just yet. Let's Go allows players to travel around the most infamous location in the series with their chosen companion - Pikachu or Eevee - and battle gym leaders from generations past. 

The Let's Go games are great for multiplayer, so are a good option if you're looking for a game that the whole family can join in on and enjoy. Some elements are quite different from previous generations, but all-in-all this still holds up as a solid title for the Switch. You can read our full review here

Pikachu watch

Though a Pokémon wristwatch shouldn't really work, EMP have put a quite a flashy and stylish spin on this gold Pikachu watch. With a strap length of 24 cm and a magnetic closing, this is a nice subtle every accessory for any Pokémon fan no matter the age. 

EMP also have other watch choices for any trainers out there, including a Mewtwo watch, a Jigglypuff one and and a Snorlax one. All have different shaped faces, colours and straps, so take a look through to find the best suitable. 

Pokémon Earphones

Argos have a fun range of kids headphones for the biggest Pokémon fans out there. These feature a plastic housing for sponge-padded cups for a comfortable fit, a 1.2m tangle-free cable, a 3.5mm jack and an adjustable headband to fit kids of all ages. 

Each ear features the iconic Pokéball - but if this design isn't too your tastes, Argos have a few other options with some of the most well-known Pokémon from the games. 

Pokémon trading card theme deck

Find a new way of playing Pokémon with the top-selling card game in the world. This pack includes everything needed to get started, including a 60 card deck, a metallic Pokémon Coin, deck box, damage counters and a checklist. 

This is also a gift that keeps on giving, as the deck can be added to with booster packs to expand the collection. That's the next birthday ticked off the list too! 

Pokémon 8-Inch Pikachu Plush Toy

Everyone’s favourite yellow critter could well be one of the most reproduced toys in existence, but that doesn’t make this plush Pikachu any less endearing. It’s made by leading toy manufacturer Tomy, with great embroidering detail. The perfect gift for a Pokémon loving child.
