No Poké setup is complete without a charming Pokémon themed mouse pad. The possibilities are endless, thanks to the hundreds of various Pokémon in existence spanning across multiple decades. If you have a favorite Pokémon, finding a mousepad curated to your preference isn’t hard.
In general, picking the right mousepad is dependent on user application. For gamers, high-quality, large surfaces are the way to go. Meaning, no matter the sensitivity, each stroke of the mouse feels accurate and in control, without the pad slipping or fraying over time. Going with a larger size prevents from running out of pad during large mouse swipes. For non-gamers, the main takeaway is going with a mousepad that aligns with personal preference.
The best Pokémon mousepads share key characteristics: build quality, materials, customization options, and most importantly, the Pokémon theme printed onto the pad.
A cute accent to any setup, this handmade mousepad is designed to provide a smooth user experience thanks to its quality build. Dimensions are 9″ x 7.5″, which should easily fit most workstations and desks. The image is particularly the selling point, featuring Bulbasaur chowing down on some delicious noodles—an image that’s sure to catch co-workers, friends, or any passerby’s attention. It’s made out of 4mm thick neoprene, so no need to worry about slippage. For $12, any Bulbasaur lover would be hard-pressed to pass this mousepad up.
It can be hard to narrow down a handful of favorite Pokémon, so why not get a mousepad that fits as many of them on it as possible? This fully customizable desk mat comes in three sizes: 12″ × 18″, 12″ × 22″, and 31.29″ × 15.7″—no matter the size of mousepad you’re after, three choices is always beneficial. Made of 4mm thick neoprene, hemmed edges, and an anti-slip backing, this mousepad isn’t overlooking quality. The collage itself showcases mostly generation one Pokemon, with a couple of generation two’s and three’s sprinkled in.

A non-slip rubber base resists slippage, quality stitching prevents fraying, and a smooth surface means solid tracking performance and aiming precision. For Pokémon lovers aiming for a massive mousepad, this handmade Pokémon is as charming as it is big.
Charizard is one of the most expensive Pokemon cards in existence, and for good reason.

It’s about the standard in size, measuring 7.75in x 9.25in and 5.5mm thick.
