Best Pokemon Shirts of All Time

Best Pokemon Shirts of All Time

Shirts are the most accessible and affordable merchandise out there; they are the easiest way to show off your passion for your fandom, too! 

Ever since I was a little kid, I’ve been an enormous Pokémon fan. I became a person who really likes games because of Pokémon! I am a designer, seamstress, and cosplayer, and (as you just learned) REALLY love Pokémon, so I have a keen eye for good and interesting designs that fit this fantastic fandom.

Bottom Line Upfront

Here is a variety of the best Pokémon shirts of all time to showcase, because our favorites vary so. I won’t be listing these shirts by gender because it’s a shirt…if it fits and you love it, it’s perfect. 

This list will feature both adult and kids’ shirts.

Selection Criteria

I’ve shared quite a list of shirts here! My selection criteria for this list included:

  • Variety of styles
  • Plethora of Pokémon
  • Wide range of prices
  • Options for the entire family, from baby to great-grandpa (and everyone in between)

Top 17 Pokémon T-shirts

Here we go…17 of the best Pokémon shirts of all time, in no particular order:

My Favorite

Pokémon FRIENDS T-shirt

Pokémon FRIENDS T-shirt
This dark grey T-shirt features a variety of colorful Pokémon, with the logo from the FRIENDS tv series underneath.

No one told you life was going to be this way. If you’re a friend of FRIENDS—and Pokémon—you’ll love this shirt (as one does). It’s very clever and showcases so many Pokémon. I also love this shirt! To be honest. I like the selection of Pokémon in the design and how many colors the shirt comes in. There’s also that famous logo…

This shirt is available in a variety of colors.

Sizes

  • Unisex S-3XL
  • Youth S-L
  • Toddler 2T-6T
  • Baby bodysuit 3-24 mo

Pros

  • The design is interesting and well-done
  • I love that it comes in many different colors, and works well with all of them
  • Ties together two favorite shows

Cons

  • If you don’t like FRIENDS, this is a non-starter

Pink tie-dye Eevee T-shirt

Pink Tie Dye Eevee T Shirt
Pink, purple, and white tie-dyed T-shirt with a yellow and blue Pokémon logo, and all the versions of Eevee shown in various colors.

If you’re like me, you love tie-dye. I mean, if I could have my whole wardrobe as tie-dye, I would. So this will certainly be a new addition to your daily wear. Plus, it’s Eevee and all the evolutions in their own colors, so you’re representing ALL the Eevees. (HotTopic has an all-pastel version that’s out of stock most of the time; if you want that one as well, keep an eye out!)

Sizes

  • Girl’s Junior sizes
  • Girl’s Plus sizes

Pros

  • The design looks very neat and tidy
  • The tie-dye is gorgeous

Cons

  • Doesn’t need the Pokémon logo on top of the design

Squirtle T-shirt

Squirtle T-shirt
This T-shirt also features some great graphic designs, showing his number, Pokéballs, and Squirtle in an action pose. It looks straight from a card—or art piece.

A Squirtle monochromatic shirt? Yes, please! If you want a more fashion-forward casual look, all one-color/shade outfits are starting to come back in style. This shirt would be the perfect start for you to showcase that trend. 

Sizes

  • XS-3X

Pros

  • The color scheme is beautiful and fits very well with Squirtle
  • The font of the Pokdex is so cool!
  • The wave splash is so cute

Cons

  • The shirt is a little too busy, and loaded with too many designs to be restful

Mew and Mewtwo T-shirt

Mew and Mewtwo T-shirt
Mew and Mewtwo are standing side by side on a pink and purple T-shirt. Their names are printed alongside the frame.

My favorite aspect of this particular shirt is that it goes up to a 3X! While not the most extensive size range possible, it is lovely to see inclusivity. Even more rare for size inclusivity: it’s cute! The tonal shades of this T-shirt are just adorable. As well, purple is always welcome.

Sizes

  • Adult S-3XL

Pros

  • Those colors are amazing!
  • The gradient in the background is interesting

Cons

  • Mew could stand out more on his own; you can’t see him as much as Mew Two

Pokémon GO Team Valor button-up

Pokémon GO Team Valor button-up
Black button up shirt with red, white, and lighter red logos of Pokémon GO’s Team Valor, the Gym, and Pokéballs.

Our first button-up! Look, we are all nerds here; that’s why I know you’ll understand my joy when I first saw those BUTTONS! They’re a perfect color match to the red on the shirt. Little details like that can make or break a piece of clothing (or anything, really).

This shirt, in red and black (so fancy), features white, red, and a somewhat red/pink print of Valor, the Gym logo, and Pokéballs. It’s a simpler print for a button-up but is also busy at the same time. 

Sizes

  • Adult S-3XL

Pros

  • Totally represents Pokémon GO
  • Great color scheme
  • Cool designs

Cons

  • I wish they had stuck to only red and white, and not the lighter red, as it distracts

Always Hangry T-shirt

Always Hangry T-shirt
Black T-shirt with a grey and purple hangry Morpeko in the center, surrounded by small purple star-like designs and the capitalized phrase, ALWAYS HANGRY.

If you love Morpeko and get hangry…just kidding, if you’re one of those. This Pokémon is adorably cute and also super angry. We all can relate; sometimes, we get hangry, too.  

Shirt options/colors: This design comes in Tee, Tank, Sweatshirt, Hoodie, Long-sleeve Tee, V-Neck Tee, Racerback Tank, Baseball Tee, and Baby One-Piece options, and in a variety of colors.

Sizes

  • Unisex S-3XL
  • Women’s S-2XL
  • Kid’s XS-XL

Pros

  • This is a really adorable design
  • The little purple stars even look hangry!
  • The font is chef’s kiss

Cons

  • What con? There are none.

Pokémon Vintage Charizard vs. Blastoise T-shirt

Pokémon Vintage Charizard vs. Blastoise T-shirt
This T-shirt features a Hokusai-like print of Charizard and Blastoise battling each other.

This T-shirt is absolutely gorgeous! This vintage shirt has a beautiful design that takes elements from classic art and combines it with the playfulness of Pokémon. Even though Charizard and Blastoise are starter Pokémon and very famous, it’s not always easy to find them on shirts. The battle depicted is super cool and interesting to ponder.

This shirt is available in a variety of colors.

Sizes

  • Unisex S-5XL

Pros

  • Stunning art
  • Good use of air and water in the design

Cons

  • Not everyone will understand this T-shirt

Catch Them All T-shirt

Catch Them All T-shirt
This T-shirt features the Pokémon logo with various Pokémon, and the Gotta Catch’ Em All phrase underneath.

This is quintessential Pokémon, all wrapped up in a T-shirt. It features some of our favorite Pokémon all on one shirt, and is color-coded according to each one’s colors.

Sizes

  • Youth XS-XL

Pros

  • Classic
  • Has so many of your favorite Pokémon

Cons

  • I wish they had used a blue and yellow font for the bottom phrase, to be more visible

Leafeon & Glaceon T-shirt

Leafeon & Glaceon T-shirt
This sage green T-shirt features pale drawings of both Leafeon & Glaceon

This weathered T-shirt is simple and classy and comes in a popular color. It features both Leafeon & Glaceon (in light blue and cream) with a surprise Eevee popping in on the back!

It gives a vintage vibe with the coloring of the shirt; it almost looks like homemade paper. This shirt is unusual in a good way…I love it! It’s a shirt you have to look a little closer at to find the details, which is not a bad thing.

Sizes

  • Unisex S-2XL

Pros

  • Great color, great design
  • I love that there’s something on the back!

Cons

  • For some people who can’t see colors as well, it might be difficult to see the design clearly

Japanese Puzzle Power with Pikachu T-shirt

Japanese Puzzle Power with Pikachu T-shirt
This T-shirt features a Rubik’s cube-like design of Pikachu being happy, sad, or ready to rumble. There’s a Pokéball and Japanese writing at the bottom of the design.

This shirt features a super-unique design, with Japanese writing, one that we don’t often see outside of Japan. The puzzle piece aspect is fascinating; I’ve never seen anything like it. Unlike the previous T-shirt, it is very bold without being bright. 

Sizes

  • Adult S-3XL

Pros

  • Unique
  • Looks like a comic book

Cons

  • It’s a little busy

Mothim Button Up

Mothim Button Up
The fabric for this shirt, designed by Kameyama Tsuruko, features several shades of olive green, white, and orange Mothim in a repeating pattern.

This long- or short-sleeve button-up can be extraordinarily customized, with different collars, pockets or not, embroidery, and options for casual, dress, and Hawaiian shirt types (also masks, bandannas, etc.!). This fabric reminds me of the 70s, with the color scheme and layout. It is designed so creatively! 

Note: There are MANY Pokémon patterns to choose from! I’m just partial to Mothim at the moment. This website features custom shirts, just the way you like them!

Sizes

  • Men’s
  • Women’s
  • Kid’s

Pros

  • This is such a beautiful and well-designed pattern that you could wear it anywhere
  • You’re wearing a work of art

Cons

  • This is expensive!

I Walked 10K for This? T-shirt

I Walked 10K for This? T-shirt
The T-shirt features the phrase, “I WALKED 10KM FOR THIS?” along with an about-to-hatch egg.

What a clever T-shirt! How far have you walked for an egg? Of course, this is nerdy, but I really like the font, as well as how the egg looks. It’s not childish, but the design is impressive: the thickness of the font matches the thickness of the line drawing of the egg. 

Design: This design comes in Tee, Tank, Sweatshirt, Hoodie, Long-sleeve Tee, V-Neck Tee, Racerback Tank, Baseball Tee, and Baby One-Piece options, and in a variety of colors.

Sizes

  • Unisex S-3XL
  • Women’s S-2XL
  • Kid’s XS-XL

Pros

  • Hilarious
  • Extensive wearable options; there’s something for everyone

Cons

  • It’s pretty basic

Island Life Hawaiian Shirt

Island Life Hawaiian Shirt
This button-up Hawaiian shirt is light blue, with pastel designs of islands with palm trees, a variety of Pokémon, and even Pikachu surfing!

The vibrant blue color against the characters cavorting on the shirt makes everything stand out beautifully with this Hawaiian shirt. It’s not a color we often see on a shirt, and it’s gorgeous. In addition, there are so many different types of Pokémon that it’s truly enjoyable to look at.

Sizes

  • Adult XS-2XL

Pros

  • The colors are gorgeous
  • The design is so, so, so pretty

Cons

  • It’s a Hawaiian shirt, which isn’t for everyone

Eevee Pokémon Greatest Hits T-shirt

Eevee Pokémon Greatest Hits T Shirt
This T-shirt features an album cover of Eevee using Quick Attack! It’s printed on an album cover-like background.

The 1980s are here! You can tell that this is deeply inspired by one of the best times for gaming (and music!). This shirt has a cute design; the background colors don’t contrast against Eevee too much. She utterly stands out, as she should.

Sizes

  • Adult M-4XL

Pros

  • It’s rare to find a shirt where you can rock the 80s with Pokémon
  • I really like how Eevee stands out from the background design, almost 3D

Cons

  • If you don’t like the 80s, this will not be for you

Pocket Snorlax T-shirt

Pocket Snorlax T-shirt

I’m an absolute sucker for a pocket shirt where there is something in the pocket. Whenever there is something in a pocket, I’m ready to buy it. It’s adorable: the pocket itself is well-drawn (and not weird looking) and blends into the shirt very well. Plus, Snorlax.

Sizes

  • Men’s and Women’s XS-3XL

Pros

  • That pocket!
  • You can see the outline of his knees and feet

Cons

  • Not a real pocket

Eevee Athletic T-shirt

Eevee Athletic T-shirt
This light pink T-shirt features the name EEVEE, a colorful drawing of her, her number, and the phrase Gotta Catch ‘Em All underneath in a thin font.

This shirt is one of my favorites. The color scheme is beautiful and very well done. It almost reminds me of a logo from a random Paris cafe: it’s classy and understated. I also really like that it includes Eevee’s Pokedex number.

Sizes

  • Women’s S-2XL

Pros

  • I love how the design looks both classic and chic
  • Great font choices
  • It is just beautiful

Cons

  • It looks like Eevee is on a plate. What?

FAQs

Question: What if a particular website doesn’t have my size?

Answer: I suggest looking deeper into their site to see if they have a variant of the shirt in your size (petite, plus, tall, etc.) and go from there. If we fans love something so much, we can always tweak it!

Question: What is the best site for shirts like this if I want to look for more Pokémon goodness?

Answer: You can find great shirts all over the internet! I suggest licensed storefronts on Amazon, Etsy, and HotTopic, for example. Choose a website with an excellent return policy (free exchanges, no restocking fee, etc.) in case you need a different size.

Question: You didn’t list my favorite Pokémon! Help!

Answer: All of the websites listed for these shirts have so much more than I can share in this humble article. I picked my favorite Pokémon; this is baseline inspiration for you to venture out into the extraordinary world of Pokémon shirts. Searching up ‘your favorite Pokémon + shirts in your size’ will ensure your success in finding the exact shirt you want.
