POKÉMON COSTUME IDEAS
PokeMania is back! Okay, so maybe PokeMania has never let up since the first game came out in 1995. (Do you remember slipping Pokémon Red or Blue into your GameBoy Pocket?) It all started with 150 Pokémon and quickly surged into the series it is today. Of course, that makes it the perfect theme for costume parties and cosplay outings, since it allows you or your child to live out their fantasy of being the very best (like no one ever was). There are certainly plenty of Pokémon costumes to choose from! Obviously, catching them is your real test and training them is your cause, but perhaps a few helpful tips are in order to begin your journey across the land. Let us mentor you like Professor Oak on how to choose the perfect wardrobe for your full Pokémon Halloween costume experience!
PIKACHU HALLOWEEN COSTUMES
The first step in becoming a true Pokémon master is to get a starter Pokémon (and a Pokémon costume). Every generation of the game comes with a new set of starter Pokémon and everyone has their opinion about which one is best. Of course, we think you should go with Pikachu, even if Bulbasaur makes the Pewter City Gym a piece of cake- and Cerulean's Gym! Pikachu might have an uphill battle against Brock in Pewter City, but after that, the little lightning rodent makes the perfect pocket monster to battle against any other trainer! And he's the cutest mouse we've ever seen, so he's totally got that going for him. We've had trouble finding a real Pikachu in the wild (we're still trying to figure out how to get to Viridian Forest). Our best advice is to get a good friend, or family member, to wear a Pikachu costume so you can begin your journey right away. These Pikachu costumes are a great place to start, since we have plenty of Pokémon costumes for adults, as well as a selection of Pokémon kids costumes!
Adult Pikachu Costume
Do you have an adult friend with an electrifying personality? Perhaps it's time that you chose them to be your traveling companion for your trip through the Kanto Region! This Pikachu costume is an extra cozy Pokémon adult onesie that lets you turn any of your adult friends into the electric based creature. We do have to warn you that you will have to level your friend up a few levels to teach them all of the best moves, like Thunder. (Or you could cheat and just give them a TM 25.) You may also wish to keep your friend away from any ground-type creatures, since they won't stand a chance against them with their electirc typing!
Toddler Pikachu Costume
There are plenty of ways for your child to join the journey, even if he's a bit too young to head out on a quest to catch ‘em all by himself. The best way is to turn your little one into your starter Pokémon with one of these toddler Pikachu costumes. It's one of our most intensely adorable Pokémon costumes for kids since it comes with the tiny rodent ears and rosy red cheeks. It's the perfect way to relive your youthful days of playing Nintendo with a set of video game costumes for adults and their kids. You won't even have to bother Professor Oak when you suit your child up in any of these Pokémon costumes for kids!
It might be a tough sell when you ask your friend to dress in a full Pokémon costume, so they can follow you on your journey to the Elite Four. What's not a tough sell though, is finding an easy Halloween costume like this Pokémon junior's hoodie! It's a Pikachu sweatshirt and it has a cozy hood that features all of the adorable characteristics of the little yellow Pokémon. It even has little Pikachu ears attached to the sides, so just flip up the hood to instantly turn into Ash's favorite little electric mouse! When your friend is all done being your number one critter, all she has to do is flip the hood down and it looks like a normal hoodie for every day wear.
Sexy Pikachu Costume
Looking to pair up with a slightly edgier starter Pokémon? Then it's time to find a sexy Pokémon costume! This Catch Me costume is a sexy costume for women and puts a sultry twist on the signature look. It keeps the electrifying yellow, but uses it in a cute tutu style dress and it makes for the perfect Pokémon couples costume when pairing an Ash and Pikachu costume. A Pikachu costume for women is not only going to be a hit, but is bound to turn a few heads so any beau is lucky to be on your arm.
Pikachu Costume Kit
For a more trimmed down Pokémon Pikachu costume look, there are plenty of accessory options that can help anyone complete their Pikachu outfit without spending a whole lot of money. This Pikachu costume kit is for anyone who's not quite ready to become a full on Pokémon, but still wants to take the first steps into a journey away from Pallet Town (or Iki Town if you're a player dipping their feet into the Alola Region).
Maybe you just need a set of glasses to shield your eyes from the sun? Well, then look no further than this set of Pikachu sunglasses. They’re the ultimate option for anyone who wants to become Pikachu while still keeping the astoundingly cool style of shades (the proper attire of cool guys and rad gals). The glasses have a fun style that incorporates Pikachu’s face into the front, so you get protection from UV rays, while getting Pokémon style to the max.
TEAM ROCKET POKÉMON COSTUMES
If you plan on traveling across the land, searching far and wide, then you'd better count on bumping into someone in a Pokémon trainer costume. If the long-running anime series has taught us anything, it's that not all trainers are going to be pals with you. In fact, some trainers may even try to steal your Pokémon! Don't worry though. We know exactly what these shady characters look like, so you can take a good look at them below. Of course, if you're a devious type, perhaps joining Team Rocket is for you… in that case you may just get a few good ideas on how to dress from Jessie and James with one of these Team Rocket Pokémon costumes.
Adult Jessie Costume
Jessie and James are the duo who has put speed bumps into every step of Ash's journey. Although they may never get their hands on Pikachu, their "play by their own rules" method is definitely appealing to some. If you're planning to walk the straight and narrow during your trip, then you might want to watch out for any women with magenta colored hair who wear a giant "R" on the front of their shirt. (Team Rocket costumes are anything but subtle!) If you want to lead a life of crime, then you may just want to slip into this adult Jessie costume.
Adult James Costume
If you're preparing for trouble, then you'd better make it double. James is the second half of the trouble-making duo from Team Rocket and he's not to be trifled with (nor is his amazing lavender hair). If you want to engage in a little bit of trouble-making of your own, then you're going to need a Team Rocket style James costume. Just make sure that you memorize the Team Rocket motto with Jessie. That's the only way that Ash and his crew will know that you're here to denounce the evils of truth and love, to extend your reach to the stars above!
PokÉmon James Costume for Kids
Maybe you're trying to turn your child into a Giovanni more so than an Ash? Well, that's okay, since the Team Rocket Pokémon costume comes in a size for kids! This child-sized James costume may just give your little one a strong desire to finally nab that Pikachu that's been eluding him for years. He's going to need a partner in crime if he ever wants to succeed, which is why we suggest pairing him up with...
PokÉmon Jessie Costume for Kids
...a child-sized Jessie costume! Meowth, that's right! We also carry a girl's version of the Team Rocket costume, so your little girl can also begin conniving as the villainous Pokémon thief. If your girl has a sassy streak and a love for collecting critters at any cost, then it's time to suit her up in one of our Pokémon costumes for girls!
Kids James Wig
Of course, being evil requires the right hair and that means a lavender Team Rocket wig for boys, and we also carry a James wig in adult size. Both come pre-shaped into that iconic hair that's normally only attainable in anime!
POKÉMON TRAINER OUTFITS
If you want to be taken seriously as a Pokémon trainer, then you're going to need a Pokémon trainer costume that show your rivals that you mean business. That's why you need to take a few notes from Ash Ketchum's book! He might not always come out on top when he's facing against Gary in the finals, but he always comes out on top when it comes to trainer fashion. That dashing blue jacket exudes an aura of cool. The hat lets opponents know when he's serious, as he always turns it backwards when he's ready to get down to business. Now, you can start your journey right with your choice Ash Ketchum costume. Check out the available Ash costume styles below.
Deluxe Ash Costume for Kids
This Pokémon trainer outfit makes for the perfect way for your child to take his first steps into the world of catching 'em all. Based on Ash's outfit from the Pokémon XY anime series, this Ash Pokémon costume comes with everything your kid needs to become the legendary Ash Ketchum.
Catchin' Em Cutie Costume
Not every style inspired by the Pokémon craze is for kids! This Catchin 'Em Cutie costume puts a sultry spin on the look that you won't find on any Nintendo costume. Wear this and you can be confident in catching any Pokémon wandering around your house, whether it's a sibling in a Pokémon Charizard costume or a real life Squirtle in Pokémon Go.
Pokémon Ash Ketchum Hat
Remember all of the times that have you watched Ash Ketchum spin that cap around and shout out, "Pikachu, I choose you!" The only way to get that dramatic effect is to have a baseball cap to turn backwards to complete the easiest Pokémon Ash costume we can think of. And although we have plenty of costume hats that you could try, nothing quite beats the Pokémon hat that Ash Ketchum himself wears!
Clip N Carry Poke Ball Belt
What kind of trainer would ever forget their Poké Balls at home? The key to success in the world of Pokémon is always being prepared, so you always want to make sure that you have your Clip N Carry Poke Ball belt to wear with your Pokémon costumes. Sure, they might not actually be able to catch any Pikachu you see scurrying around in the tall grass, but it will make you look like the very best.
POKÉMON GO COSTUME ACCESSORIES
For a few weeks, Pokémon GO was all the rage and nearly everyone and their mom had it downloaded on their smartphone. It was pure craziness as parks filled up with fans trying to get their hands on as many Rattatas as they could! People frantically tried to jam their Magikarp into the gym at the mall pretzel shop. And while we all had a great time chasing Dragonites in the park, the initial rush of popularity has tapered down and it's slowly building itself into a steady game. If you're looking to create a Pokémon GO Halloween costume, or you really just want to up your hunting experience as you scour the earth for a legendary bird, check out some of these hats to add the finishing touch to your look. Dress up like your avatar by wearing a Pokémon GO trainer costume and acting like you are in the game!
Pokémon Red Snapback Hat
Are you the type of person with an unshakable will? Do you refuse to back down from a battle at any gym? Are you chock full of true grit? Then you probably picked Team Valor upon your entry into the world of catching 'em all. Candela is your leader and she'd be proud to have you wearing this red snapback hat with a Poke Ball embroidered on the front. You'll have the perfect Pokémon GO costume when you pair it with your athletic gear and you'll be ready to represent your team with flair!
Pokémon Blue Snapback Hat
If Team Valor is for those with true grit, then Team Mystic is for those chock full of true wit! That's right, the Blue Team is known for their intellect and planning skills, which both seem like pretty advantageous skills when trying to capture Pokémon and take over gyms. If you're the cunning type, then show Blanche your allegiance with this blue Pokémon GO snapback hat.
Pokémon Yellow Snapback Hat
Sometimes, nothing can beat following your instincts! If you're the type of person who lives by the edge of your seat, then you've probably got a lot in common with Spark, Team Instinct's de facto leader. If that's the kind of team you're rolling with, then you're going to need a nice, yellow hat to confirm your allegiance! This yellow Pokémon hat is for those who adhere to Team Yellow's freewheeling attitude, so make sure to wear it any time you decide to follow your own rules!
