Gift Em All with the best Pokémon Cards, collectibles, and more on StockX now.

The holiday season isn’t quite upon us yet, but it’s never too early to start getting into the shopping spirit. Over the last few years, Pokémon has seen an incredible resurgence in popularity as the Trading Card Game has taken off among fans both young and old. Since then, The Pokémon Company has collaborated with a number of partners delivering everything from sneakers to watches to high art plush toys. If someone on your holiday list is a big Pokémon fan, StockX has everything you need to make sure you deliver something they’ll cherish.

Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star Pokémon First Partners

The Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star Pokémon First Partners is the perfect shoe for any true Pokémon fan. These iconic sneakers feature a striking graphic of four of the most loved Pokémon characters on the outside of the shoe: Pikachu, Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle. On top of that, the inside of these shoes are decorated with images of Jigglypuff and a Converse logo-turned-Pokéball, making this shoe a must-have for any Pokémon lover. Whether you’re looking to surprise your best friend or treat yourself to something special, this classic pair of Pokémon sneakers are a must add for any true fan.


Pokémon TCG Hidden Fates Tin 3x Lot Charizard/Gyrados/Raichu

If you’ve got loved ones who are into the Pokémon Trading Card Game, StockX is the place to do your holiday shopping. Over the last few years, Pokémon Cards have become incredibly popular on StockX, especially when sold in bundles. This particular bundle features three separate tins from the Pokémon Trading Card Game’s Hidden Fates. The bundle includes a Raichu, Gyarados, and Charizard Tin, giving your giftee the opportunity to add all kinds of new Pokémon, even some shiny ones, to their deck.

Billionaire Boys Club x Pokemon Mewtwo Curve T-shirt 

Another piece of must-have Pokémon merch is the Billionaire Boys Club x Pokémon Mewtwo Curve T-shirt. The t-shirt combines Billionaire Boy’s Club’s most iconic design, the Astronaut, with a Mewtwo graphic on its chest. The Astronaut’s head can be found peeking around the body of Mewtwo as he blasts through the legendary Pokémon’s psychic aura. If you’re a fan of Pokémon: The First Movie, the one where Ash gets turned to stone and all of the Pokémon get cloned, you’ve got to get your hands on this t-shirt.

Levi’s x Pokémon Vintage Trucker Jacket

Over the last few years, The Pokémon Company has been a very frequent collaborator. Between partnerships with artists like Daniel Arsham and sneakers with Converse, Pokémon can be found just about anywhere. One of their more recent and more popular collaborations took place with Levi’s, one of America’s most iconic denim brands. The partnership yielded this Pikachu-adorned Vintage Trucker Jacket, which makes for the perfect outer layer for any Pokémon fan. With a giant Pikachu graphic on its back and two lightning bolts on its sleeves, this jacket is the perfect holiday surprise for your Pokémon fan.

Daniel Arsham x Pokémon Pikachu Small Plush

Since 2020, Daniel Arsham has had an ongoing collaboration with Pokémon that has applied the artist’s crystalized Future Relic style to Pikachu, Charmander, and a Mew Card. More recently, Arsham and Pokémon delivered the Crystalized Pikachu in a plush version, perfect for snuggles both now and in the future. The Pikachu Plush was made available in a beige color in two different sizes, small and large. Right now, the small size can be shopped on StockX for less than its original retail price, making it an ideal gift for that Pokémon fan in your life who’s also into art and popular culture.

Casio G-Shock Baby-G x Pokémon Pikachu

Three years ago, in 2019, Pokémon celebrated their 25th anniversary with the release of several collaborations across a number of different industries. One of those was with Casio on a G-Shock Baby-G watch that features Pikachu-inspired graphic styling. Pikachu’s essence can be spotted throughout the watch as it features a Pokémon-branded display, a colorful lightning bolt band print, and even a graphic of Pikachu on the EL backlight. For those looking to grab something for their Pokémon lover to wear around that’s a little more lowkey, or could even fit into a stocking, this Casio G-Shock Baby-G might be the one for you.
