Welcome trainers! To the nostalgic world of Pokemon terrariums.
Thanks to some super creative people on Etsy, we now have a variety of crafty terrarium options to “capture” and display our favorite Pokemon.
Though, just to be clear, we’re being pretty loose with the word “terrarium” here…
We may not have much in the way of live plants, but who needs them when we have beautiful materials like stained glass, resin, crystals, and preserved plants?
In this guide, we’ll be covering some of the best Pokemon terrariums you can buy right now – grouped (somewhat) by type.
So, just like the good old days, we’re blasting off again!

The Best Pokemon Terrariums on Etsy
1. Pokeball Terrariums (Desktop Pokemon Ball Terrariums)
First up, Pokeball terrariums.
As the most common type of Pokemon terrarium on Etsy, there’s a lot to choose from here. They seem to come in every possible critter combination, each with its own unique flavor and style.
Let’s start with Pocketworlds.
For me, nothing invokes Pokemon nostalgia quite like the original starter Pokemon – and these little beauties are amazing!
Whether you chose Bulbasaur, Squirtle, or Charmander for your GameBoy adventure all those years ago, they’re now available in Pokeball form right here.
(Though personally, I ran with Pikachu on Pokemon Yellow – maybe I like a challenge?).
Each Pokemon comes surrounded by a beautiful little floral/crystal scene that highlights their element and key features.
Turns out, I’m a big fan of the light-up crystal terrariums. Check out Pokenomenon for more in the same vein.
If you (somehow) can’t find your desired Pokemon, worry not. There are a variety of custom Pokemon terrarium offerings to explore too.
Or, if you’re looking for something a little more zen, how about this Zen Garden Pokeball Terrarium? The level of detail in this one is insane.
2. Pokemon Keychains (Floral & Factions)
For the on-the-go fan, these little Pokeball teacup keyrings are a real treat.
What you forego in Pokemon figures, you gain in a wide variety of floral designs. Though each is one of a kind, so you can be sure yours is unique to you!
And for all those Pokemon GO fans out there, what better way to represent your team than to have an enblemed crystal keychain?
3. Nintendo DS Pokemon Terrarium
Okay, so we’re really stretching the term “terrarium” here, but these things are so creative I’ll absolutely allow it.
A Nintendo DS-turned-planter has no business being this good. 😂
They do the GameBoy, too, if that gets your nostalgia muscles flexing more (greetings, fellow Millenials).
4. Pokemon Terrarium Jars
WhySoCilious is featured again because they have such a wide variety of lovely Pokemon-themed products, but these “PokeJars” have got to be my favorites.
They’re just a few inches tall, and each comes with the option for a colored crystal filling (which really does seem to pull the whole piece together)
They make a perfect desk filler or gift – what’s not to love?
5. Crystal Pokeball Terrarium Nightlights
Last but by no means least, we have something very different from Supball.
Another Pokeball? Kind of, but this crystal ball is different.
This super cute night light illuminates your Pokemon of choice from below, creating a bright hologram-like effect. It’s so cool!
They have a surprisingly large range, too. With 113 Pokemon on offer at the time of writing and a good selection of both classic and new.
Over to You
Well, that’s been a lovely stroll through my childhood nostalgia.
