How to Make Your Own Pokemon Badges

Things You'll Need

  • Paper
  • Pen or colored markers
  • Plastic button badges (optional)
  • Tape (optional)

Young Pokemon fans who love imagination games will adore building their own Pokemon gyms to create a real-life version of the Pokemon world. Whether role playing as a Pokemon trainer or a gym leader, a few props go a long way toward making their game more realistic. Make Pokemon gym badges out of paper and either tape them to the child’s jacket or use plastic button badge holders to make actual pins.

Use a template to draw circles on a piece of paper. Draw as many circles as you want to design. If you are using plastic button badges, be sure the circle fits in the badge.

Draw badge images in the circles. Mimic the Pokemon gym badges from the Pokemon games or TV show, or design your own badges, using your favorite Pokemon, shapes or symbols.


Cut out the circles and tape them to your jacket. Insert the circle into a plastic button badge and pin the button to your jacket.
