Max’s amazing Pokemon party had some big make-it-easy Pokemon party ideas: like a storyline. From the very beginning of the party, the kids were all Pokemon trainers, charged with catching, training and battling a Pokemon.
We had such fun coming up with some fantastic Pokemon party ideas that weren’t your average party games. Like all good kid’s parties, the party games and fun took centre stage.
Pokemon party ideas for you to try
Pokemon party invitations
Max and I made the invites using this cool website. Hours of fun for any Pokemon fan (and their mother, as it turns out). The kids loved them and I think this Pokemon party idea has totally upped my cool factor in the eyes of the eight-year-old boy set. Which was necessary.
We printed our creations onto 100gsm card and glued the front to the back. We then painted the front and back with Mod Podge to give it a shiny look and smooth feel.
For a bit of extra fun, we gave the Pokemon party invitations out hidden in a small stack of 5 actual Pokemon cards. Big hit with the kids and a great Pokemon party idea for you too.

Let the battle begin!
Next the boys had to battle their Pokemon (or themselves, as it happened).

Pokemon party food
aka pit stop for hungry trainers
After the battles, it was food time. For all the amazing themed food we’ve done over the years (and hello Pokemon biscuits and Pokeball cake pops up there), we’ve learned that the kids are really only interested in the lollies and the chips. So I bought lots and lots of those (we even had a separate party table just for bowls of crisps, burger rings and cheezels) and we didn’t go to too much trouble with the rest of it.
