Pokemon Birthday Game Ideas
For a Pokémon-themed party, you can combine crafts, activity sheets, and short games and call them “Pokémon training activities.” The kids (the Pokémon trainers) will have different stations to discover throughout the party. Once they have completed all the Pokemon activities, they receive Pokemon Trainer Certificates, making them official Pokemon Trainers. Also Read: Drawing For Kids Easy
You can download a Pokémon trainer certificate from this page. I offer you ideas for Pokémon birthday games below (draw from it to create a few stations for training. For ideas of manual activities, I invite you to search your favourite search engine; there are plenty of things offered, such as paper Pikachu ears or creating your Pokémon!
1-Ring toss with Pokemon plushes
Let players “catch” their favourite Pokémon with a game of skill featuring Pokémon stuffed animals (or large figurines). You can buy a stuffed animal (or several) or have them loaned to you! Make a row of Pokemon plushes outside or in a hallway or stairway. Provide two plastic rings (one red and one white) that each participant can try to throw 10 times at a stuffed animal. Let young players get up close to the Pokemon and consider securing the plushies with strips of double-sided tape, so they don’t topple over.
2-Guess the name of this Pokémon.
Find out which child knows the characteristics of this particular universe best with this Pokémon birthday game. Write Pokémon names on a small piece of paper and stick them on the children’s backs. Children must ask themselves questions that can only be answered yes or no to try to find the name of their Pokémon. When a child finds a name, give him another piece of paper and continue the game. The children who have the most papers with names at the end of the game win small gifts. Children who do not know the Pokemon characters can distribute the papers or count the scores (plan small prizes for their help and participation).
3-Quiz (requires some preparation)
Create your quiz from the Pokemon universe and test players’ knowledge of different characters, attack types, regions, trainers and more. Make teams, and remember to put some math or spelling questions for children who don’t know the Pokemon universe (give them a chance to participate).
4-The Sinnoh region: a research game
Turn your backyard or living room into the Sinnoh region, where kids will have to find as many Pokémon as they can in a limited time. Plan 10 to 20 small cartoon figurine type objects and hide them next to the sofa, under a cushion, in a plant or behind a bush depending on where you are doing your Pokemon game. If two players find the same number of figurines, organize a small game of questions about the cartoon to decide between them (or give a prize to each).
5-The hot Pokeball (game derived from the hot potato)
Organize a Pokémon-themed variation of the hot potato game using a red and white plastic Pokeball. Have the kids stand and pass the Pokeball from player to player in a Pokemon-themed theme. When the theme stops, whoever is carrying the orb must sit down. The game resumes until just one kid is still standing—award prizes to the “best Pokemon trainers” in the game.
Hide Pokeballs around the house or garden and have the kids hunt them. Make the Pokeballs by colouring a half ping pong ball or plastic golf ball red with a black ring around the centre. It doesn’t have to be perfect. Kids need to get a feel for what it is!
7-A game in Pokemon colours
Buy “Pokémon” coloured balloons, i.e. red, white, blue, orange and yellow. Place a Pokemon tattoo (or something else small) in each one. Inflate them and spread them out in the play area. Have the children stamp the balloons with their paws. You don’t require any other gifts for this match. Tattoos (or other chosen little surprises) will be incentive enough).
8-Psyduck said (derivative game of Jacques said
It’s an easy game to set up and understand, and it can be a great way to calm down a rowdy group of young children. Psyduck always holds his head in his hands due to his psychic powers giving him a nasty headache, so hold your head firmly and speak in a silly, nasal voice as Psyduck does. The kids will work together to fix his headache by doing what Psyduck tells them.
