Create Your Own Pokemon Character & Turn it into a Plushie!

Custom PlushieIf an AR Pokemon is still not enough to get your monster fix, it’s time to kick it up a notch and create your own custom Pokemon character! That’s right, you create your own rare Pokemon, or “Fakemon”, as we’ve cleverly named it. It’s so rare, in fact, that you’re the only one in the entire world who has it.

Then, you can submit your design and have it turned into a one-of-a-kind custom plush! Bring your unique Pokemon to life & even take it on your Pokemon GO! hunt with you.


Here are some awesome Fakemon plushies that Budsies has created so far:

Take Pokemon GO! Madness: Take Your Plushie Along

Strap on your walking shoes and get ready to GO! With the newly released smartphone game Pokemon Go, you are able to spot, catch and battle pokemon on your daily commute to school or work — or just while exploring your neighborhood.

Exploration was one of the main goals for this game from Niantic in collaboration with Nintendo. Pokemon games are full of exploration and adventure — within the confines of a handheld gaming device.

Pokemon Go revolutionizes this approach by opening the whole world up for exploration, encouraging new and veteran pokemon trainers alike to find their region’s collection of Pokemon. Certain monsters and types are unique to different locations — which makes taking a trip or staying on the bus for just a few more stops all the more exciting.

Once a Pokemon is caught — either in-app or with a smart accessory called Pokemon Go Plus — it can be trained to compete in battles to claim location-based gyms. When you have conquered a gym you become its gym leader and maintain that status until another bright-eyed ‘mon trainer comes to take your place. And so the cycle repeats.

Pokemon go Pokemon Go! is an augmented reality game that takes place in real time and features real opponents, so it does not follow the traditional format of past Pokemon games. Instead, players are given the chance to live out what is quite possibly their ultimate fantasy — traversing the world with their own team of battle-ready Pokemon.

With Pokemon GO!, Niantic is pushing people to experience their neighborhoods — and the rest of the world — in a beautifully Pokemon-centered way. So get ready, it’s time to catch them all!

My name is Tucker Berardi, and I am an intern at Budsies as well as a college student. I love to write and am an aspiring journalist -- I am curious and driven and I believe there is always a story to tell! For me, the world is filled with adventures to be had or dogs to pet and I like to seek out and experience as much as I can. Coffee is my drink of choice.
