Top Poké Shops
What are some of the top places to catch Pokemon Merchandise you ask? Well, we decided to go catch some Pokemon…err search for Pokemon merchandise around our closest mall. We found some places that are stocked full of all the weird poké goodness that you crave, and maybe some you don’t (Pika Boxers.) So let’s get this list rolling. We need to catch ’em all.
Hot Topic – They have apparel items mostly featuring the starters and Pikachu himself.
Spencer’s – The adult version to Hot Topic, Spencer’s also has mostly apparel but carries shirts with Pokemon like Gengar and Meowth instead of the mainlines.
Walmart – This also includes Target and Kmart, but a small section of Pokemon toys and all recent card expansions can be found here.

Note Worthy Gifts:
Trainer and Jumbo Sized Plushies:
The Pokemon Center has a huge stock of plushies including Jumbo and Trainer sized. The lines of Jumbo and Trainer sized plushies run around 35 – 50$ USD, and are full sized Pokemon. They currently have the most popular picks but will expand as more demand is created!
Every Trainer is sure to love collecting cards. They sell these at most retail locations for current sets, and you can check for older sets at comics shops, or online. There are often binders around the card section for you to purchase as well to protect your new hobby.
They sell the different versions of Ash Ketchum and Red’s hats online. Pick one up and support a local artist from Etsy or check Amazon and costume stores for an officially licensed Pokemon hat.
Walmart and Hot Topic carry Pokemon bed sets for Full and Twin sized beds. They have Pikachu designs and come with sheets, pillowcases, and comforters to complete the look.
Pokemon At Home
Always remember you can pick up a Nintendo DS for a Pokemon newbie to play at home where Pokemon aren’t spawning. A Classic DS and game will only run you around 35 USD$ and can be one of the best gifts you can give. So stop by your local Yard Sale or go to a hometown game store to find one of these oldies for your giftee, or yourself. Don’t miss out on the rest of the Pokemon craze, pick up some merch now!
