Cute Ways To Celebrate Pokemon Day

Posted on February 27, 2020 by

It’s Pokemon Day today! The first Pokemon games were released in Japan on February 27, 1996 – 24 years ago. Who’s feeling old? (Me). Here’s some fun ways to celebrate with things to buy, cute DIYs and a new movie.

Pokemon Day

I always check JapanStuffs (Japan) first as they have all the new Pokemon Center releases for pre-order and ship worldwide. This super cute new Motchiri Manmaru collection is all about round Pokemon including Rowlet, Wooloo and Drifloon. I need those stickers.

Pokemon Day - Pikachu & Eevee Punitto Friends

Japan Haul by TokyoTreat (Japan) also has some rare Pokemon items including lots of very kawaii stickers and these Punitto Friends toys of Pikachu and Eevee. Add batteries and they talk and wiggle around!

Pokemon Day - Mimikyu Ditto plush

If you’re in the USA, there’s some cute stuff in the official Pokemon Center shop including pins, bags and plushies. This Ditto Mimikyu plush is too adorable.

Pokemon Day - Eevee plush free sewing patterns

If you prefer to make your own plush, Sew Desu Ne? have free sewing patterns for Eeveelution Blob Plush that look very round and cuddly.

I love this Bulbasaur self-watering planter tutorial at Cute Life Hacks. It uses a Japanese bakeable clay but you could use polymer clay instead.

These DIY Pokemon mini notebooks at Red Ted Art are very colourful, and super easy too.

If that’s all too much effort, get yourself on the sofa and celebrate Pokemon Day with the new Mewtwo Strikes Back – Evolution movie, which drops on Netflix worldwide today. It’s a CGI remake of the first Pokemon animated film so sure to be very nostalgic.

    Isn’t it illegal to make licenced products like pokemon?

      Generally yes, but fan art is a very grey area, especially if you are not selling it for profit or only make small quantities. The pattern and tutorial above are free and everything else is officially licensed. We rarely promote fan art on SCK (and never knowingly share fake products or items using stolen artwork) but it is up to the copyright holder (e.g. Pokemon) and regional laws to decide what’s legally allowable, not us.
