Picture it – 1999, and it’s your girl’s first trip to Europe. First time out of the country! Yes . . I was 22 years old, and while I had been on a plane many times – I had never been to Europe, or anywhere international.
I went with friends, and we were traveling to several countries. One of them who had traveled a lot before let me know that there would be down time on the train.
SO I brought some books . . . and a Nintendo Game Boy. With one cartridge. Pokemon!
I played hours and hours of that game when I was on the train just hanging out, and when I couldn’t sleep. And you know what? I wasn’t the only one. Everyone loves Pokemon, and if you’re here, you probably do too.
If you’ve never played it before, Pokemon is a role-playing video game in which you are a Pokemon trainer. The goal is to become a master. And who doesn’t want to be a master? I’m in.
The key to victory over the game lies in understanding your Pokemon’s strengths, weaknesses, and the elemental type advantages. It’s a mix of strategy and adventure, and that’s what I love about it.
If you’ve been here before, you know we love perler beads . . . and we also love video games!
We’ve brought the two together before with Among Us, Minecraft, Sonic the Hedgehog, Super Mario, and now we’re doing Pokemon perler beads. And I’m so excited to share them with you, because it brings back all the goods memories of game play over the years.
My mission today is to bring your favorite characters to life through beads! If you’re trying to recreate Pikachu’s electrifying charm, Bulbasaur’s vibrant green hues, or the fiery spectacle that is Charizard, I’ve got you covered.
All your favorite characters are part of this collection! Either keep scrolling or do a search on the page to find the pattern you’re looking for. You can always leave me a comment too!
Remember that perler beads are recommended for ages six and up, so this is a very fun craft to try with children. They love perler beads (also known as hama beads, fuse beads, or melty beads). But don’t be shy – adults love them as well.
Tips for Using Perler Beads
Before we get into the patterns, I want to review a few basics of using fuse beads to make sure you get the best results (using Baby Yoda as an example). If you don’t want the tips, scroll down to the bottom to get the Pokemon hama bead patterns.
Remember that the overall goal is to melt the beads together on both sides while still leaving the holes open. Here’s how you’ll do that.
Note: If your project is really large, check out the tape method, which keeps everything together while ironing.
Use Ironing or Parchment Paper
Once your project is done, place ironing paper or parchment paper over the beads on the pegboard. Be gentle so you don’t disturb the beads underneath.
Heat your iron to the medium setting (no steam). In a circular motion, begin to iron the project. Don’t press down too hard with the iron. When ironed properly, the beads will still have an open center. Check and make sure your edges are melted. Let the design cool on the pegboard.
Note: BE CAREFUL about lifting up the paper while you’re ironing! If you want to check, carefully peel back paper around the edge of your design and see if all the beads are melted.
If you lift the paper up quickly and there are a lot of unmelted beads, they will easily fall off or go flying and you may be forced to start over. Sometimes the edges need more time so when you check, just check the edges and peel paper back slowly.
Another Note: some beads melt faster than others (clear melts faster than white, for example). So some holes might be larger than others. It’s okay! That’s part of the look of the project.
Iron the Other Side
Remove the bead design from the pegboard. Flip it over to the non-melted side and repeat the fusing process.
Remove the Paper
Let cool completely and remove the paper again (which is reusable). Some people pull the paper off after they iron the first side, but I just wait until the end and peel off both pieces. It’s up to you!
Now if you’re ready for the Pokemon perler beads, here are the patterns.
Pokemon Hama Beads
- A few of these patterns are larger than a 29 x 29 pegboard, so you’ll either need a extra large pegboard (49 x 69 tall) or to put multiple square peg boards together to form a larger “canvas.”
- You’ll see a couple of the pattern backgrounds below aren’t white – that’s simply to give contrast so you can see where all the white beads should go. You don’t need to add the background (but you can if you want to).
- You don’t have to stick to my color choices. A lot of times I just use what I have on hand, so feel free to customize.
- I typically start with easier, smaller patterns in my list and then move on to the more difficult ones. If you’re looking for something a bit more advanced, just keep scrolling!
