We are avid Pokémon GO-ers and play as a family at least once a week. This morning, for example we met up with a group of locals on the hunt for an Entei. Although we successfully battled two, we just couldn’t catch him!
My middle is a walking Pokémon encyclopedia, so it was no surprise when he told me he wanted to be Ash Ketchum for Halloween. When browsing online, I found the cutest Ash Ketchum Deluxe costume, which came with a shirt, pants, hat, and fingerless gloves! All that is needed to complete the outfit is a pair of red Converse, a pokéball, and a stuffed Pikachu! They had tons of other
He may have tried on this outfit and not taken it off for hours – running through the yard yelling “I Choose You!”
I love all of the details in this costume, as well as its comfortable fit and the fact that it does not have a mask. We do not allow the boys to wear costumes with masks on Halloween because it limits their vision to look for road hazards and cars. My oldest has decided he wants to be Pikachu, and my youngest is undecided thus far. However, I think I will go back on the Oriental Trading site and order him the Bulbasaur costume, my husband the Charizard hoodie, and the Pikachu separates for myself.
