Add a section on Ideas for Game Pieces and Pieces
Pieces can add a sense of fun and excitement to a Pokemon game board. There are multiple options when it comes to choosing game pieces, including 2D figurines of your favorite Pokemon characters or figurines made of plastic or foam in the shape of various Pokemon. You may also consider making tokens out of paper with drawings of various items on them that could be used to move around the board such as Pokeballs, berries, or fainted Pokemon. You can also use coins with different values assigned to them or action cards which have special abilities that can help players take control of their fate. The fun possibilities for game pieces are endless!

Additional Game Elements
Along with the base components for making a Pokemon game board, there are also additional elements that can be added to make the game more engaging and exciting. Here are some ideas for adding extra fun elements to your Pokemon game:
Cards – You can print out cards or buy them from an online store with different character questions or instructions like ‘battle 3 creatures’. Adding these cards can give players new challenges and goals to complete as they move around the board.
Secret Level Pieces – Designing specific pieces players can find hidden on the board that allow them to have special rewards similar to unlocking secret levels in traditional video games is also possible. This could be something as simple as an item that allows a player to instantly get ahead by several spaces or even skip back a few.
Leaderboard – A leaderboard is always a fantastic addition when wanting to keep score in any kind of game. This could track who won each round, the overall top player, or whatever criteria you want! Just remember, make sure your players know how their score is being calculated so it’s fair for everyone competing.

Playtesting the Board
Before releasing your Pokemon game board to a public audience, playtesting is an essential step in ensuring that it is both balanced and enjoyable. Here are some helpful tips for playtesting:
1. Invite a diverse group of friends – Invite people of different ages and skill levels to test out the game board so that you get a wide range of feedback from different types of players.
2. Gather feedback – After each round or match, ask your playtesters questions about what was enjoyable or frustrating about the game. This will help you see where improvements can be made.
3. Make changes – Based on the feedback you’ve received from your playtesters, make any necessary modifications such as reworking difficult levels or adding extra resources as needed.
4. Test again – Revisit your game board with new testers to see if any issues have been resolved. Keep testing and tweaking until you reach optimal balance and enjoyment potential!

Add a section on Storage/Care
To ensure the Pokemon game board’s longevity, store it away from direct sunlight and humidity, as these can cause fading and discoloration of the game board’s surface. Make sure to keep the board clean by occasionally wiping it down with a damp (not wet) cloth and gentle detergent. To protect against scratches, apply a thin coat of polish or wax to the board’s surface. To guard against damage such as punctures or tears, store the gameboard in an enclosed box that covers its entirety. Finally, if necessary repairs do become required due to extensive wear and tear, either contact the manufacturer for advice on how best to proceed with repairs or seek out a professional restorer when dealing with vintage pieces.
