. 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 😀

Pokemon 3d Chess Set Coloured

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

Chess Pokemon Cake

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!
