Can’t find Pikachu in Pokemon Go? Just build one with LEGO!

Chris Maddison has brought everyone’s favorite new game to the brick with this adorable Pokemon Go Pikachu and Poke Ball. This reality is even more augmented than usual though, with the scenery and even the phone being made of bricks!

Get a Steely Hug from the Purple Dinosaur

This purple dinosaur probably has more Pokemon influence than the one you’re thinking of, but both have a man inside the suit. This Nidoking-inspired mecha is the brainchild of Stormbringer, and looks ready for an all-out poke-mecha battle.


Pika Pika!

Korean builder zkdlalsxm captures all the cuteness of Pikachu with this model of the iconic yellow mouse Pokemon. ϞϞ(๑⚈ ․̫ ⚈๑)∩


Lego Mudkip worthy of liking

Brickbuilder0937 heard you like Mudkips, so he built one out of Lego.


Gotta catch ’em all with Combee

Like many guys born in the seventies and eighties, as a child, I spent many Saturday mornings watching cartoons on TV. I used to watch classics such as Transformers, M.A.S.K. and Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors and build them out of LEGO. By the time Pokémon came along, I had lost interest in cartoons (other than Ren & Stimpy). Pokémon struck me as an obvious ploy to get children to spend their pocket money on what were obviously rubbish toys. Gotta catch ’em all, right? Not at all like the cartoons I used to watch.

Ash & Pikachu

I have, of course, come to realise that my favourite cartoons were as much about selling toys as Pokémon, but I still think that much of the TV series was a bit rubbish. That said, I also realise that, to many people, Ash & Pikachu are no less iconic than Scott Tracker and T-Bob, or (dare I say it) Bumblebee and Spike Witwicky. This and the quality of the models, means that I cannot overlook these great figures built by Combee!. Pikachu looks particularly cute.

Thanks to Niels Huyzer, who suggested this to me several weeks ago.

Amazing Pokemon Rapidash by Mike Nieves

How do you follow something as amazing as Rivendell? Well, Mike Nieves (Retinence) may have used fewer bricks in this version of Rapidash from Pokemon, but he’s mastered them well. Mike is a long-time adept at creating organic curves with LEGO, and the rippling muscles and mane of this creation prove it.

Mecha Charizard, I choose you!

Zane Houston‘s mechanical version of the iconic Pokemon Charizard adds a new level of ferocity to the beast. The flamethrower tail and the visible mechanical workings inside the belly of the beast are great additions.

Incredible Lego Pokemon Arcanine

I saw this creation by Mike Nieves (retinence) at BrickFair, and was blown away. The first thing that caught my eye was the paw smashing into the base, it really adds motion to the sculpture. Then I realized that the entire Pokemon (tiger?) was balanced on one paw! Incredibly, this creation was overlooked for nomination for Best Bionicle, but celebrity judge Ed Diment made sure this was recognized in the mecha category.

Catch all of Carson Hart’s LEGO Pokemon

Unless your heart is made of stone, you’ll fall in love with these adorable LEGO Pokemon and their trainer by Carson Hart.

I think that’s Blastoise, Venusaur, Charizard, Ash, and Snorlax. How evolved!

Lego Pokemon Scizor

Mike Nieves (retinence) have made several Pokemon creations with his elegant Bionicle/System style. His most recent build of Scizor is one of my favorites. Whoever commissioned it is one lucky customer.

Impressive Lego Pokemon Creatures by Mike Nieves

Skeletons are notoriously difficult to sculpt with Lego, due to their fragile, spindly nature, but Mike Nieves (aka retinence) has done a superb job with this imagining of a Pokemon Magikarp. His Gyarados is no less excellent, though, translating the serpentine body into Lego fantastically.

Build a Pokéball

Chris McVeigh (powerpig) has posted instructions to build a Pokéball. Maybe it’ll catch a Lego Pokémon.
