Pokemon Party Ideas

Know someone who’d love a Pokemon Go birthday party?

Our new Pokemon party supplies have arrived and we’re super excited to show you how to throw a Pokemon party!

Perfect for any age (even for people who were fans of Pokemon the first time round), we’ve got tonnes of decorating ideas, party games and food ideas to get your Pokemon party started. Read on for inspiration!

Setting up your Pokemon party

Stock up on party essentials

Every successful themed party starts with the right décor. A Pokemon birthday party should be bright, colourful and fun so we started with a selection of party essentials from our range of Pokemon party supplies.

Pokemon Pikachu Balloon

We picked up all the essentials – plates, cups, napkins, tablecloths and balloons to make sure all the basics are covered and leave us more time to add some unique touches to the party!

Pokemon Party Plates

We absolutely love decorating kids’ parties with supershape balloons. They’re fun and add a great focal point to your decorations. How about this supersize Pikachu balloon or a supershape Pokeball balloon?

Rustle up some Pokemon party food

Next up is some party food for your hungry Pokemon trainers! Here are some of the best Pokemon party food ideas we found on Pinterest.

Pokeball birthday cake

If you fancy getting really creative and don’t mind a challenge, this Pokeball birthday cake is for you! All you need to do is invest in two half-dome cake tins and follow the step-by-step tutorial on How to Cake It.

Pikachu and Pokeball cupcakes

For something a little simpler, try these Pikachu and Pokeball cupcakes. Use plain cupcakes and coloured icing to make a selection of both. You could even have your guests decorate their own Pokemon cupcakes as a fun party activity!

Pokeball Babybells

For a savoury party snack, have a go at turning Babybells into Pokeballs. Simply cut away half of the red casing (very carefully!) and use a carefully cut piece of black paper to complete the transformation.


Make a Pokemon birthday cake

Fancy getting really creative? How about making a Pokemon birthday cake for your party? This is much easier than it looks – all you need is two layers of sponge cake and some red, white, blue and black ready-to-roll icing.

Play some Pokemon party games

Gotta catch ’em all treasure hunt

Send your little Pokemon trainers on the search for Pokemon with a gotta catch ’em all treasure hunt! Hide a selection of Pokemon-themed party favours like these around your house or garden, and see who can find the most! Keep it easy for younger children and choose some harder hiding places for the older ones.

Pin the tail on the Pikachu

Pin the tail on the donkey can be adapted for any party theme! For a Pokemon birthday party, how about using a Pikachu instead of a donkey?

Pokemon Go

Needless to say, the best party game for your Pokemon Go party is Pokemon Go! It requires minimal adult intervention and will get all the children outside having fun.

Send your Pokemon trainers home with a party bag

Last but not least, finish your Pokemon party with themed party bags! Fill them with small toys, sweets and Pokemon-themed party favours; or to make things even easier, pick up some pre-filled party bags to pop inside each one.
