17 "Pokemon Go" Halloween Costume Ideas For Those Who Gotta Catch 'Em All

Share

It's never too early to start planning your Halloween getup, especially if it's already clear what you're meant to be. If you're the type who, while making your trick-or-treating rounds, is going to be more focused on catching wild Pokemon than handfuls of candy, then it's safe to say what costume you should be sporting. So before you station yourself next to that Lure to add more Weedles and Pidgeys to your Pokedex, check out these "Pokemon Go" Halloween costume ideas.

Stay true to your pursuit of all wild Pokemon in a slick trainer suit representing team Instinct, Mystic, or Valor. Or better yet, be a more literal embodiment of your desire to catch 'em all as a Pokeball ready to encapsulate any Pokemon that crosses its path. Celebrate your favorite catches in clever costumes channeling your inner Eevee, Jigglypuff, Oddish, or Caterpie, or evolve into a flying Golbat or Venomath or the coveted Vaporeon. Whether you prefer to pack a punch as Hitmonchan or keep quiet as Squirtle, there's a Pokemon costume perfectly outfitted to your personality type. Or forgo the characters all together and attract your own flock of wild Pokemon as a Lure, or show off your complete collection as a walking Pokedex.
