10 Classic Pokémon Skins to Download and Use in Minecraft

1 of 11

Pokémon and Minecraft are just two games that are never going to go away. Arguably the two most powerhouse—yet simple—titles on their respective console types, these games have been capturing the hearts of the young and old for so many years.

The constant remixing of gameplay has kept these titles fresh and beloved. I still remember playing Minecraft in its alpha stage, and playing the original Red and Blue versions of Pokémon was one of the warmest and most adventurous gaming memories of my childhood.

That being said, how about a little combination of the two? With over 700 Pokémon in existence, it's taken the huge success of Pokémon GO to bring us back to the memories of the original 151. Let's take a look at 10 of the nicest Pokémon-themed Minecraft skins available right now.

Pikachu (by Telmarin)

Starting off simple in terms of familiarity and design is Pikachu. This little guy is to Pokémon as what Steve is to Minecraft!

Charmander (by zombiedefeater123)

With Charizard's scorching popularity, probably due to the insane rarity of the card back when Pokémon cards were huge, Charmander may very well be one of the the most recognized starting Pokémon of all-time. Play as him with this skin!

Mewtwo (by JovaneGonzxD)

It's the Pokémon every collector drools over. Mewtwo looks as fiece and imposing in this well-shaded skin as it does to every trainer out trying get their hands on it. If Pikachu is Pokémon's Steve, Mewtwo is definitely the Herobrine!

Meowth (by AnimalLover900)

Meowth took everyone by surprise as the first Pokémon that could actually talk to us. Download this skin to play as Team Rocket's favorite pet kitty!

Eevee (by DarkPowers203)

Eevee was a huge treat to trainers as it gave us that second chance at picking one out of three Pokémon when it comes time to evolve: Vaporeon, Jolteon, and Flareon.

Diglett (by thecheese)

Surprisingly cute for the usually boring Ground type, Diglett actually fits in pretty well with the Minecraft scenery. Lots of dirt and holes makes a cozy home!

Machamp (by astarothaloman)

This four-armed brute is probably the only classic Pokémon that could put up a fight against brawlers like Hitmonchan and Hitmonlee. No one will want to mess with you with this skin!

Articuno (by TheSkinCreator123)

Articuno is one of the three Legendary birds of Kanto, and this skin really puts a mean touch on it!

Gyrados (by PieroGr)

By massive size and scary appearance, Gyrados may very well be the most feared of the the original 151 Pokémon. This wide-mouthed skin does a great job of capturing that!

Cubone (by LaatMaarZitten)

Who needs an Iron Helmet when you're already a Cubone? It's actually made of bone, but… close enough.
