Special Honors

Pikachu Poké Plush Jumbo When the typical 10-inch tall plush toys don't cut it, consider a jumbo one instead. At a whopping 39 inches, this Pikachu Plush from Pokémon Center is one of the largest on the market. It features the same high-grade construction as items found in retail stores in Japan and is manufactured to high standards with an emphasis on attention to detail, quality materials, and original designs not found anywhere else.

Editor's Notes

November 15, 2019:

The Pokemon franchise incorporates a vast universe of loveable and memorable characters that have captured the public's attention for generations. The result is a market overflowing with toys and accessories, which we scoured to find some of the best and most loved items to populate this list.

We ranked items based on play value, quality construction, attention to detail, and more. We wanted to select items that appeal to fans of every ilk, from serious collectors to small children. When bundled with a fun on-theme costume, one of these toys will allow you to immerse yourself in this rich fantasy world.

No list of Pokemon toys would be complete without a few plushies, which is where the Tomy Gengar Plush and newly-added My Friend Pikachu come in. Pikachu replaced our previous CRE Mega Pikachu for several reasons. It's consistently manufactured and exceptionally detailed, sports light-up cheeks and wiggling ears, talks, and comes with the batteries needed to get him going.

For selections that involve the whole family, look to Hedbanz Game and Monopoly Kanto Edition. Just like regular Monopoly, the Kanto edition takes up considerable time to play one round, so be aware of the commitment going in. We think the twee Pokemon playing tokens alone are enough to justify spending a few hours with it, though.

During this latest update, we also said goodbye to the Charmander Backpack to make way for something with better play value, which is why we added the Premium Trainer's XY Collection in its place. This collection is comprehensive, packed with accessories, provides hours of fun, and is appropriate for any serious fan.
