James and/or Jessie from Team Rocket
Whether you plan on going as a part of Team Rocket or a standalone Pokémon villain, you can’t go wrong if you dress up as James or Jessie. Don’t let the bright colored hair fool you- these two are the most notorious characters in the whole Pokémon Universe. Their attempts to steal, torture and exploit Pokémon didn’t make them a favorite amongst fans, but we have to admit- dressing up as Team Rocket for Halloween sure is fun. The purple and blue wigs combined with white and gray outfits stamped with the striking red R are a great way to release your inner villain- Pokémon style.
Sure, it might be a bit inconvenient, but that’s what it’s all about- choosing to be a Poke Ball this Halloween will definitely make your costume stand out amongst other Pokémon-themed ones. Rather than choosing to be a Pokémon Trainer or the fighting little monster, you can be the item that binds them- and it will be a great conversation starter, too. In addition to being unconventional and fun, Poke Ball costume is also really easy to pull off- if you don’t find a dress or a top with this print at your local clothing store, you can always go for a Poke Ball inspired t-shirt or a hoodie, and you’re all set. Simple but effective- you can’t make a mistake with this one!
So, you’d like to express your love for the Pokémon Go game, or want to add a personalized touch to your Pokémon-inspired Halloween costume? One of the best solutions is to decide on Pokémon Trainer costume and add all the details and personalized touches you want. The base should be a Pokémon trainer outfit from one of the three teams: Team Valor, Team Mystic, and Team Instinct- and all of the outfits come in male and female version.
To give your Halloween outfit that something special, try customizing it with Poke Ball belt, your own Pokédex or incredibly realistic Pokémon trainer gloves. With this Halloween costume, all that will remain is to catch some Pokémon- and rest assured, there will be no shortage of them at a Halloween party.
