We love Pokémon here at Geek's Oasis and a few people in the office have even been playing since the original Red and Blue days. There is no shortage of Pokémon puzzles out there, seriously, there have to be hundreds and hundreds of different puzzles based around the awesome franchise that is Pokémon!

A puzzle can be such a good way for someone to keep their mind active and keep their hands busy. However, they are also a lot of fun, especially when they are based on something that is as awesome as Pokémon.

We've been working hard to find the coolest products for you that will make your life easier and more fun. Each product has been independently selected by our editors.

Trying To Catch Them All!

As we said, there are a ton of different Pokémon puzzles to choose from so we had to put on our Ash Ketchum style hat as we tried to come up with a great list. We have gone for a mixture of traditional jigsaw puzzles as well as building block-style puzzles so there will be something for every Pokémon fan on this list.

This is so awesome, it will make for an amazing collectible that you can display, it features Pikachu sitting on top of a Monster Ball and while it is made up of only 61 pieces, this is far more challenging than you would think! It has a kind of translucent effect to it which really makes it pop.

One of the most eye-catching Pokémon puzzles that we have on this list is this incredible Buffalo Games Pokémon Eevee's Stained Glass puzzle.

This is all about Eevee and the insane amount of evolutions that Eevee has. The stained glass design of this gives it the look of one of those epic intros that one of the Pokémon movies has.

Anyone that is a serious Pokémon collector will certainly have this displayed with pride in their collection. Also, it is 500 pieces so it will be challenging, but not so challenging you start freaking out like you are Psyduck!

One of the most spectacular items we have on our best Pokémon puzzles list is this MEGA Pokémon Figure Toy Building Set. The series of Pokémon buildable sets from MEGA are awesome and this one is one of the more impressive puzzle sets that they have.

Not only do you build Pikachu with this set, but he also comes with this stand which allows him to run! It is crazy to see in motion and this could be a real centerpiece in your Pokémon collection.

Why We At Geek's Oasis Love It

Ok, we know that you probably think we are as crazy as those maniacs at Team Rocket for suggesting this monster Buffalo Games Pokémon Panels 2000 Piece Puzzle as it contains 2,000 pieces.

However, this is such an awesome design, it is split into six sections with dozens of Pokémon in them. Plus, to tell you the truth, we do really work for Team Rocket and we are going to wait until you are deep into putting this together and then steal all your Pokémon!!!

Team Rocket is a criminal organization that aims to steal other people's Pokémon. They have their main headquarters in the Kanto and Johto regions, with a smaller branch situated on the Sevii Islands.

Nanoblock Charmander

Check Price on Amazon

Why We At Geek's Oasis Love It

Here we have another block-based addition to our best Pokémon puzzles list. The reason that we went for this Nanoblock Charmander is that everyone in the Geek's Oasis office just fell in love with it.

There is a whole series of these Nanoblock Pokémon sets and while they look like they would be very easy, these are much more complicated than LEGO or even MEGA sets. The reason is that these blocks are tiny, so your hand-eye coordination and your fine motor skills will get a good workout!

Good To Know

  • Size: 1.6 inches tall
  • Recommended Age: 15 years and up
  • Even though this is tiny, it is made up of over 100 pieces!

They are done in this very cool almost “arcade” kind of style and it looks great! This is coming in at 1000 pieces and as a great deal of it is black, it is going to be one heck of a fun challenge.

FAQ About Pokémon Puzzles

We know that with so much variety, you may have a few questions, heck Ash has been trying to catch them all for decades at this point and he still asks questions every episode. We have a few frequently asked questions to help your puzzle choice a bit easier.

Ash Ketchum is one of the main characters in the Pokémon franchise owned by Nintendo.

Blocks Or Pieces?

As you have seen we have a mixture of traditional-style Pokemon puzzles and block-based puzzles. In an ideal world, you could get one of each to try! However, we would suggest going for which one you feel most comfortable with.

If you get a standard jigsaw puzzle, you can put it in a puzzle frame and display it. Blocks on the other hand give you a cool little collectible to put on your shelf.

Why Do So Many Pokémon Puzzles Say They Are For Kids?

One thing that may put some people off getting a really cool Pokémon puzzle is that some of them go out of their way to say that they are for kids. 

We would suggest that you do not get too hung up on it, remember how annoying it was when Iris would always call Ash a kid in the Pokémon TV show?

Some sellers just think that Pokémon is for kids and that is why they advertise them as being for kids. If you think a puzzle looks cool and you like it, go for it! Do not be put off by what the recommended age is or what it says in the description.

Also, if you're into gaming, chasing Pokémons is just so much fun regardless of how old you are! You can see adults in buses catching them, and for some reason, you often find a bunch of grown-ups standing near those Pokémon Gyms.

Some Parting Wisdom From Fellow Pokémon Connoisseurs

Remember when Cilan used to love to brag that he was a Pokémon connoisseur? Anyway, we love Pokémon just as much as you do and we feel that these Pokémon puzzles are a great way to embrace your fandom in a fun way.

Cilan is a character appearing in Pokémon the Series. He is one of the three Gym Leaders of Striaton City Gym.

It is awesome to play the Pokémon games, collect the figures, and the cards, watch the anime, and so on. However, with a puzzle, you are getting something that is good for your mind as well and that is pretty cool.
