Latest posts by Candace Osmond (see all)

Does a Pokémon Master in your life have a birthday coming up? Want to make their big day extra special? To throw someone the ultimate Pokémon-themed party, you’ll need Pokémon party supplies. Today, I’ll walk you through the best Pokémon party dishes, games, decorations, and more. I’ll also cover some beginner’s information about Pokémon, so don’t worry if you don’t know much about the show or video games. Without further ado, let’s get into it!

Bottom Line Upfront

I love a sweet balloon arch! They can level up any event and gives that wow factor that everyone will remember. So, I’d highly recommend the 116 Pack Red Black Yellow Balloon Garland Arch Kit for Pokémon.

Top Picks

Wanna skip right to the best part? Check out these balloons, decorations, dishes, wrapping paper, games, and party favors that I’d consider top-tier. I’ll give more info about each of these party essentials further down.

Best Balloons: Lovsong 5 Pieces – Pokémon Birthday Balloons

Best Decorations: 7 X 5 Ft Cartoon Video Game Pokémon Birthday Photography Backdrop

Best Party Dishes: Pokémon Party Supplies Pack – Serves 16

Best Wrapping Paper: Hallmark Pokémon Wrapping Paper with Cutlines on Reverse

Best Game: Pokémon Catch Pikachu Pin the Tail on the Donkey

Best Party Favor: COUOAO 12 Pcs Mini Push Pop Sensory Fidget Toy – Pikachu

What Age Range is Pokémon for?

Pokémon is intended for kids ages 6 and up. I’m going to argue that Pokémon is for adults, too, since it’s mostly adults who make money from competitive Pokémon gaming and streaming (and lots of us grew up with the show.)

Key Party Elements for a Pokémon Birthday

Hallmark Pokémon Wrapping Paper with Cutlines on Reverse

Here’s a quick idea of what you might want to include at your Pokémon party. Even if you have next to no knowledge of Pokémon, this section will give you a good idea of what to look for.

  • Colors – The most prominent color scheme in Pokémon is red, white, black, and yellow. Pokeballs are red and white. Pikachu is black and yellow.
  • Symbols from the show – You’ll want to include pokeballs at your Pokémon party, but you could also include fruit shown in every Pokémon season like oran berries, cherri berries, and pecha berries.
  • Characters – The main character of every Pokémon season is Ash. All the other characters change with every new region, so you’ll need to know which regions your child likes to understand their favorite characters.
  • Popular Pokémon – When in doubt, go for the popular Pokémon like Pikachu, Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle, Meowth, Eevee, Psyduck, and Jigglypuff.

The Best Pokémon Party Supplies

Ready to look through the best Pokémon party supplies you can find online? I’ve spent a lot of time compiling this list to show items I’d want for my child’s (or my own) Pokémon birthday party and a variety to appeal to different ages. I’ll describe what makes each item best, give some key specs, and list the pros and cons, so you can decide if you like each one.

Best Pokémon Balloons

A party isn’t a party without balloons! I’ve got 4 Pokémon balloon packs to show you, and I know that at least one of these will be a huge hit at the birthday bash. Let’s check them out!

Anagram International 57″ Pokémon Pikachu Balloon

Anagram International 57" Pokémon Pikachu Balloon

This huge Pikachu balloon might be even bigger than your child! At 57″ tall, this one is much larger than life size.

Pikachu is striking a pose! I think Pokémon fans would be thrilled to receive this giant balloon featuring the world’s most iconic Pokémon. From episode one to the newest episodes airing now, Pikachu has been winning fan popularity contests for decades. How can anyone get enough of that cutesy smile and pudgy little body filled to the brim with electrical currents?

  • Price Range: $11-$21
  • Quantity: 1
  • Best Feature: Large size

This balloon is 57 inches tall and made of mylar foil. You may want to buy a helium pump with this balloon if you don’t have one already.


  • Biggest balloon on the list
  • Almost every fan loves Pikachu
  • Inexpensive for the size


  • Some Pokémon fans are tired of seeing Pikachu

116 Pack Red Black Yellow Balloon Garland Arch Kit for Pokémon

116 Pack Red Black Yellow Balloon Garland Arch Kit for Pokémon

Now, this is how you decorate a partaaay! With this kit, you can create an entire archway with red, black, and yellow balloons.

  • Price Range: $10-$20
  • Quantity: 116
  • Best Feature: Great for large displays

I’ve always thought archways made of hundreds of balloons looked impressive, so I thought I’d show you this idea. You can create your own archway in your home or at a venue with 116 red, black, and yellow balloons. Red, black, and yellow are some of the most popular colors used in the Pokémon series (for characters and branding,) so these balloons match the theme perfectly. Stick up a few pictures of Pokeballs, Pikachu, and Ash to really tie the colors together.


  • Low price
  • Lets you decorate an entire archway
  • Colors match the Pokémon color scheme


  • Doesn’t feature any Pokémon

2 Pcs Lovsong Birthday Balloons – 18-Inch Pokeball Balloons

2 Pcs Lovsong Birthday Balloons - 18-Inch Pokeball Balloons

When in doubt, decorate with some pokeballs. No matter who the birthday boy or girl’s favorite mon is, everybody needs pokeballs to catch the little pocket monsters.

  • Price Range: $4-$14
  • Quantity: 2
  • Best Feature: Great for fans of any kind of Pokémon

These balloons are what I would consider Pokémon party essentials. Every Pokémon party has to feature pokeballs somewhere, and balloons make perfect sense because they’re already round. This set gives you 2 18-inch foil balloons, which I like since they’re reflective and catch the light. Since you get 2, it might be a good idea to tie them to opposite ends of a table or hang them on both ends of a Happy Birthday sign. Having an even number of balloons like this means you can make a display look more symmetrical.


  • 2 in 1 pack
  • Every Pokémon fan likes pokeballs
  • Large size


  • Doesn’t feature any Pokémon

Lovsong 5 Pieces – Pokémon  Birthday Balloons

Lovsong 5 Pieces - Pokémon  Birthday Balloons

Gotta catch ’em all! You’ll get Pikachu, Charmander, Squirtle, Ivysaur, and a Pokeball balloon in this pack! Consider this the ultimate Pokémon Master’s balloon pack. Not only is the star of the show, Pikachu, included, but you’ll get 3 of the Kanto region starters and a Pokeball, too. The Pokémon series started off in the Kanto region, so the Pokémon you see here are some of the first ones ever created and loved by fans.

  • Price Range: $8-$18
  • Quantity: 5
  • Best Feature: 4 different Pokémon included

Charmander and Squirtle are two of the 3 Pokémon trainers get to choose from as their first Pokémon at the beginning of that region. Ivysaur is the evolved form of the 3rd Pokémon in that trio of choices. What does this mean? Fans of all ages will adore these Pokémon because pretty much every fan knows who they are.


  • Features 4 Pokémon and 1 Pokeball
  • Pokémon included are some of the most popular
  • Low price


  • Some younger fans may have never played a Kanto region game with these Pokémon

Best Pokémon Decorations

You’ve got to have the standard decorations at every party: balloons, streamers, a birthday banner, etc. You know the drill. That’s why I wanted to be a little more creative here and show you a couple of ideas you may not have seen before. Let’s take a look!

7 X 5 Ft Cartoon Video Game Pokémon Birthday Photography Backdrop

Ft Cartoon Video Game Pokémon Birthday Photography Backdrop

I know I struggle to get my kids to want to pose for a picture. I think having a photography backdrop featuring their favorite show might help.

  • Price Range: $13-$23
  • Quantity: 1
  • Best Feature: Interactive

Say Pikachu on 3! I absolutely adore this photography backdrop. It’s exciting for kids and adults to take their pictures in front of colorful backdrops, so this is the perfect add-on to any party. Want to be a little extra? Buy some Pokémon accessories like pokeballs and trainer clothes for guests to dress up in before they get their picture taken. If this is a kid’s birthday party, make sure to hand out pictures to each of the parents when they come back for their little ones.


  • Let’s party-goers take commemorative photos
  •  Inexpensive for value
  • Large decoration that creates a fun atmosphere


  • Kids could easily knock it down

13 Pcs Anime Pokémon Party Porch Sign Birthday Decorations

Pcs Anime Pokémon Party Porch Sign Birthday Decorations

These are cute and feature long-time fan favorites like Pikachu, Piplup, Meowth, and Psyduck dressed up for a birthday party! I think they look nice hung above your porch or from the ceiling.

  • Price Range: $10-$20
  • Quantity: 3
  • Best Feature: Lots of Pokémon included

At any good party, there are colorful banners, streamers, and wall-hanging garlands. Pokémon up through generation 4, which took place in the Sinnoh region, can be found on these decorations. If your child has played Pokémon Brilliant Diamond or Pokémon Shining Pearl on their Nintendo Switch, this party garland is a great choice! Plus, seeing their favorite mons dressed up just for their party will make your kid feel extra special.


  • Bright colors and lots of Pokémon
  • Easy to hang up
  • 3 in a pack


  • Not interactive

Best Pokémon Party Dishes

Themed party dishes and napkins make cake time feel even more exciting. Every great Pokémon party has got to have cute paper plates and perhaps some colorful plastic silverware, so take a look at these awesome sets I found! You’ll find everything you need for food, drinks, and snacks.

20 Pcs Pokeball Popcorn Boxes Themed Party Favors

20 Pcs Pokeball Popcorn Boxes Themed Party Favors

If you’re throwing a party, you need snacks! These cute Pokeball snack holders are great for popcorn, chips, candy, and other small finger foods.

  • Price Range: $8-$18
  • Quantity: 20
  • Best Feature: Easy to assemble

Who’s that Pokémon? Just kidding, it’s popcorn! These cute boxes, like pokeballs, are meant to hold all the best party snacks. They’re incredibly easy to put together and come with instructions, so you won’t get tripped up. The boxes are 5.2″ X 3.5″ X 2.5″, so they’re big enough for you to fit small prizes inside, too. There are lots of small Pokémon figurines you could buy to do just that.


  • Best option for snacks
  • Universally recognizable Pokeball design
  • Reasonable price
  • Easy assembly


  • If you have more than 20 guests, you’ll need to buy extra

  • Price Range: $25-$35
  • Quantity: 16 of each item
  • Best Feature: Complete party food and drink set

It’s covered in starters! Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle, and Pikachu cover everything (the first Pokémon you can get in the first games.) Pichu, Pikachu’s first evolution, is even posed beside him on the napkins. You’ll get 16 cups, plates, and napkins in the set, along with a tablecloth and birthday candles. All you’ll need is the plastic silverware! Consider buying yellow silverware for Pikachu.


  • Features 5 popular Pokémon
  • Eye-catching, colorful designs

  • Price Range: $11-$21
  • Quantity: 8 of each
  • Best Feature: Features all Kanto region starters and Pikachu

If you like the set above but have a smaller guest list than 16, check out this set that serves 8. The tablecloth and birthday candles aren’t included, but the plates, cups, and napkins are.

  • Plates, cups, silverware, and napkins included
  • Reasonable price
  • Colorful and fun designs


  • Only serves 8 guests

Best Pokémon Wrapping Paper

I would start singing the Pokémon rap, but today we’re talking about a different kind of wrapping. I’ve got 2 Poke-centric wrapping paper choices to show you that I know fans of the series will get a kick out of. Let’s look at them.

Hallmark Pokémon Wrapping Paper with Cutlines on Reverse

Hallmark Pokémon Wrapping Paper with Cutlines on Reverse

You’re a Pokémon expert if you can name every mon on these 3 rolls of wrapping paper! This is great for young and old fans because there are newer and older Pokémon featured here.

This is the absolute best Pokémon wrapping paper set you will find. I’m a huge fan of Hallmark wrapping paper because it doesn’t rip against corners. You’ll also get the cut lines on the reverse side, which makes it easier to wrap neatly.

  • Price Range: $12-$22
  • Quantity: 3
  • Best Feature: Features lots of different Pokémon

The blue paper is the safe choice for any Pokefan – it just features Pikachu doing a variety of cute things. The red paper is great for older fans and young fans who have played Let’s Go! Eevee or Let’s Go! Pikachu (which takes place in the first Pokémon region.) The block pattern paper has Pokémon from regions 1-4, so there is a wider variety of mons.


  • Lots of favorite Pokémon from across different regions are included
  • Cutlines on the reverse side of the paper
  • High-quality Hallmark brand


  • Pricey

Hallmark 9″ Medium Pokémon Pokeball Gift Bag with Tissue Paper

Medium Pokémon Pokeball Gift Bag with Tissue Paper

Sometimes you want to wrap a stuffed toy or an action figure that is just too awkwardly shaped to be wrapped with paper. The solution? A Pokeball-shaped gift bag, of course.

  • Price Range: $3-$9
  • Quantity: 1
  • Best Feature: It looks round like a Pokeball

You’ve got this party in the bag! A Pokeball bag, to be exact. I think it’s great to give the birthday boy or girl at least one Pokémon stuffed toy at the party. That’s why you’ll need a bag to stick their favorite Pokémon inside since it’s hard to wrap stuffies with paper. As always, this is another gift-wrapping solution from Hallmark. The bag is 9″ tall and comes with white tissue paper so you can cover up the top. Though this is officially branded, the cost is low.


  • Inexpensive
  • Features a Pokeball design and Pokémon logo
  • Great for wrapping gifts not in a box


  • Big toys won’t fit

Best Pokémon Game

Let’s check out the best Pokémon game that’s great for birthday parties that host kids of all ages. Once you see this game, you’ll know exactly what it is, even if you haven’t played the Pokémon version of it before.

Pokémon Catch Pikachu Pin the Tail on the Donkey

Pokémon Catch Pikachu Pin the Tail on the Donkey

Time for a Poke-spin on a classic game! Any kid can enjoy this one. Alola! That’s how you say hello and goodbye in the Alola region, which is where lots of the Pokémon in this game are from. This game is an awesome choice if your child loves playing Pokémon Sun or Moon, or enjoys watching the Pokémon Sun and Moon anime series.

  • Price Range: $8-$18
  • Quantity: 1
  • Best Feature: Adorable Sun and Moon Pokémon

This game operates just like pin the tail on the donkey, but instead, you pin the tail on the Pikachu. How cute! A red winner ribbon comes with the game, so you can award whoever does the best with a special treat.


  • Adorable take on a classic game
  • Easy for all ages to enjoy
  • Winner ribbon included


  • These Pokémon aren’t from the newest generation

Best Pokémon Party Favors

It’s important to make sure your little guests get something, too, so that no one feels left out. That’s where your candy-and-toy-stuffed loot bags come in! Check out these adorable Pokémon bags and toys I’ve selected, so everything you get matches the theme. If you want to do a little extra, fill the bags with some Pokémon-themed candy, too.

AnyGo Pokémon Birthday Party Paper Gift Bags

AnyGo Pokémon Birthday Party Paper Gift Bags

These cute bags allow every trainer at the party to pick up their favorite Pokémon! I’m a fan of how lots of the most popular Pokémon are available, like Jigglypuff, Charmander, and Snorlax.

  • Price Range: $18-$28
  • Quantity: 16
  • Best Feature: Adorable Pokémon faces

These are all Pokémon from the first generation, so make sure your birthday boy or girl has watched the original Pokémon season or played a Kanto game (like the Let’s Go! games on Switch.) It might be a cute idea to fill these bags up with candy and small toys.


  • Recognizable Pokémon faces and Pokeball designs
  • Helps you host up to 36 guests
  • Perfect for the party theme


  • Not official Pokémon merchandise

12Pcs Video Game Pokémon Birthday Masks

12Pcs Video Game Pokémon Birthday Masks

Who needs party hats when you can have awesome party masks? This set is so fun because, besides Pokémon characters you can be, there are also trainer masks! You can be Ash, Brock, or even Jessie from Team Rocket.

  • Price Range: $11-$21
  • Quantity: 12
  • Best Feature: Comfortable fabric to wear

Since the masks are made from felt and don’t have any plastic, it won’t hurt to wear them around for a while. The headband is elastic, so you won’t have to worry about adjusting them.


  • Pokémon and human characters
  • Soft felt fabric isn’t uncomfortable to wear
  • Colorful and eye-catching


  • Some kids may not want to be one of the less-popular characters

36Pc Anime Cartoon Pokémon Silicone Bracelet Set

36Pc Anime Cartoon Pokémon Silicone Bracelet Set

Preteens and teens who like Pokémon might prefer party favors more like this. These rubber bracelets feature pokeballs and Pikachu. You’ll find red, yellow, blue, and black bracelets in this pack, since they stick to the Pokémon color scheme.

  • Price Range: $11-$21
  • Quantity: 36
  • Best Feature: Low price

If you wanted to do gift bags at a party for older kids but aren’t sure what to put in the bags besides candy, I recommend these.


  • Each bracelet is less than $1
  • Cute Pokeball and Pokémon designs
  • Brightly colored


  • Some kids never wear bracelets

COUOAO 12 Pcs Mini Push Pop Sensory Fidget Toy – Pikachu

12 Pcs Mini Push Pop Sensory Fidget Toy - Pikachu

Fidget toys are so popular that I think these are great for kids and adults of all ages. If you’ve never seen these before, all you do to play or fidget is pop the silicone dots in and out.

  • Price Range: $10-$20
  • Quantity: 12
  • Best Feature: Popular toy

It’s kind of like a stress ball. These ones are all shaped like Pikachu, but what makes them stand out is the fun color schemes used to create vibrant Pikas in all shades. Adorable!


  • Sensory toys are very popular
  • Cute and recognizable Pikachu designs
  • Lots of bright color choices
  • Can be used as a decorative keychain


  • The keychains may break easily


Before you dash off to catch all 890 Pokémon, I want to answer your most frequently asked questions about Pokémon party supplies.

Question: Where can I get Pokémon Party Supplies?

Answer: You can pick up Pokémon party supplies pretty much anywhere! Amazon, Party City, Walmart, Target, and even eBay are some places you can look. To get creative, you can even try to DIY some of the party decorations for a personalized touch.

Question: How Many Kids Should I Expect for a Birthday Party?

Answer: That’s up to you! If your child wants to invite their own guests, let them invite all their close friends so nobody feels left out and there isn’t drama at school. If you’re throwing a party with family, consider if you want the party to be held in your house or in a venue to come up with a guest list.

Question: How Long Should a Birthday Party Be?

Answer: For kids, plan for a birthday party to last between 2 and 4 hours. If the kids are really young, aged 2-5, it’s probably best to keep the party to an hour and a half.

Let’s Battle and Party!

If you and your loved ones are gearing up for another spectacular birthday party, I hope you found my Pokémon party supplies guide helpful. Was there a favorite decoration, game, or other sets you saw that you would buy for the big day? I’d highly recommend the 116 Pack Red Black Yellow Balloon Garland Arch Kit for Pokémon if you can only get one kind of decoration.
