The item dimension measures 20.3 x 20.3 x 3.3 and this was made of MDF while chess pieces are made of resin.
This beautiful set is perfect for any Pokémon fan! The board measures 14.17″ (36cm) tall and has a length of either 3 or 4 inches, depending on what size you want to buy it as well;
looks cool , figures seem fairly big
Who doesn’t love the idea of a pokemon chess set? The board is made from handcrafted wood and there are two sizes available, one at 11.81″ (30cm), which measures 36 centimeters in length;
. Most of the pokemon chess sets are fan-made, with majority of them being 3d Printed Chess. You can buy then on etsy, or have a look at how it was printed on https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2369887
Above set is Printed in light Woodfill PLA, sanded, stained and sprayed with a clear coat.
Every piece is designed to be printed in 2 parts, the Pokeball base and the Pokemon itself.
The base can be filled with nuts (M8 at 100% size, M6 at 75%) to make the pieces more bottom heavy.
How pokemon chess sets work?
Pokemon Chess sets work basically same as any other chess set – but instead of normal set of chess figures you get figures in pokemon style.
Sort of looks like a battle between two pokemon trainers but on the chess board
What are the different types of pokemon chess sets?
There are a few different types of pokemon chess sets available. The most basic type is just a basic chess set, with pokemon figures replacing the pieces.
These types of sets are usually not easy to play with, mainly because you have to constantly remember which pokemon represents what piece. Good if you want to jog your memory though 😀
Another 3d Printed Chess Set, this time coloured, with Snorlax being white pawn and lapras on the opposite side of the board.
Chess Pieces generally small , with different heights and shapes e.g. for the rook makes it much easier to identify the chess pieces and play the actual game if anybody decided to.
Looking at the detailed pictures seems like the chess pieces are very well made
Below is a fan-made version of a Pokemon Chess.
Probably for viewing purposes only 😉 Black pieces having pawn of ultraballs and sort of a bad guys type of pokemons on their side, with Meow bein the king, most of them mainly physic pokemons.
Not sure why psyduck there though, and being a king chess figure 😀 On the other side of the board you have what would seem the ‘good guys’ consistig mainly of Ash pokemon team, with Squirtle being the king and Pikachu being the queen by the looks of it.
Definiteyl an unique Chess Set!

In essence through the times, due to the popularity of the show, there has been a number of pokemon games.
Gameboy version ones were the most popular during the day. Starting with Yellow, then onto Red/Blue/Green and many more. Gameboys not necessarily very popular these days, but you can get some emulators on pc that will allow you to play
In recent years Pokemon GO came out, an augmented reality game that you can play on your mobile phone
The pokemon game that resembles chess game the most would be Pokemon Duel. You choose 6 pokemon figures on each side and battle against each other
This is a fan-made version of a Pokemon Chess Board from ceramics. Looks like it took quite a lot of time to prepare. Looks like water vs fire chess set. The final board is 18 inches x 18 inches. The pieces range from 1 ½ inches to 4 inches in size.
