Pokémon: 10 Christmas gift ideas for young and old!

You do not know what to offer for Christmas to your child, spouse or any close Pokémon fan? Here are some original gift ideas that will inevitably make them happy! From stuffed animals to pretty terrariums, including the famous Pokémon cards, there is plenty to do.

Pokémon: 10 Christmas gift ideas for young and old!

Your child is a Pokémon fan but you don't know what to get him among the ton of goodies and other collectible cards that the stores offer? Have you been dreaming of buying something a little more "adult" for your spouse or close license lover for years? Here is a selection of gifts that will necessarily please.

Pokémon cards: beware of counterfeits!

Difficult to navigate with all the extensions and formats available on the Pokémon card side. In general, a child or any other fan of the license will prefer to receive packs of cards called "booster". They contain 10 cards each and are sometimes offered in sets of three (tripack) or in pretty gift boxes (tinbox). Do not hesitate to ask the sellers of specialized stores but avoid prebuilt decks which are especially made for those who would like to get into the real card game.

Beware of counterfeits (which you will most often find abroad or directly online, even on Amazon). It is difficult to spot them but be aware that a pack of 10 cards will never sell for less than €5, for example.

Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

The newest expansions to buy right now are Pokémon GO and Silver Storm.

Pokemon video games

If your loved one has a Nintendo Switch, one of the following Pokémon games could definitely make them happy. Make sure he doesn't already have the version in question of course. Note that there are often two different versions for the same game: this only concerns the exclusive creatures that can be captured inside.

  • Pokémon Let's GO Pikachu or Évoli (2018): a superb remake of the first generation if you want to introduce your children to the universe,
  • Pokémon Sword and Shield (2019): the eighth generation of creatures in a region inspired by England,
  • Pokémon Legends Arceus (2022): the renewal of the license with semi-open world exploration and an adventure in the past,
  • Pokémon Scarlet and Violet (2022): the two new versions released recently, featuring a full open world and unique creatures from the 9th generation.

A gift with the image of his favorite Pokémon

T-shirt, figurine, mug and other plush: there is bound to be a gift representing his favorite creature. Lucky you if it's Pikachu, the game's mascot, since you'll find something original without looking too hard. On the other hand, if the person you want to give this gift to has Tadmorv or Sinistrail as their favorite creature... You will have a little more trouble. Either way, head to specialty stores or online businesses like Amazon, Leboncoin and especially Etsy to find the perfect gift.

If you really can't find it, why not make it yourself by having an official artwork of the Pokémon in question printed on a T-shirt or sticker paper.

Diablo 4: A disappointing collector's edition with a bizarre candle

These days it's fashionable to incorporate a nice figurine, helmet or notable accessory into the big AAA collector's editions. But for the Diablo IV release, Blizzard made the strange choice of adding a big satanic candle that may not convince all players.
