pikachu maid 1

A Pikachu Cafe is currently open in Tokyo, and the restaurant recently hosted an event that featured a Pikachu maid. Celebrity Rika Adachi dressed as pocket monster maid for the event (maid cafes are apparently a thing in that part of Tokyo), and her appearance makes sense since she’ll be appearing in the latest Pokémon movie as Marilyn Flame. I’m not sure why she didn’t dress as her character, but I guess it is a Pikachu themed restaurant.

The definition of cute can mean many different things to different people, but I’m pretty sure that we’ll be able to agree that this pack of Pikachus (Pikachai?) having a party in Yokohama, Japan for the “Pikachu Outbreak Event” is one of the most adorable things ever.

A special Pikachu was distributed to players during the event. According to Bulbanews, “Pikachu will have an OT of Minato Mirai and will be level 10. It will come in a Cherish Ball and will have the Event Ribbon. It will have the moves Thunderbolt, Quick Attack, Surf and Hold Hands.”

pokemon plush glasses start

While we can’t know for sure what started this Pokémon in glasses meme, we’re guessing the marketing material for the upcoming Pokémon sunglasses may have had something to do with that.

Regardless, there’s a sudden influx of pictures of Pokémon wearing glasses and, really, isn’t that all that matters?

pokemon cosplay a

We’ve seen people cosplay Pokèmon and we’ve seen people play Pokemon trainers, but this cosplay by 4 Itchy Tasty Cosplay at Anime Expo pairs the trainers with their Pokèmon as puppets and it’s pretty much perfection.

In addition to being one of the cosplayers, Brett Horn created the puppets which are built to mimic the Pokèmon they’re based on.

They were definitely a hit at Anime Expo and I’m thinking they’ll be out again given how popular this cosplay was.

You can check out more pictures and a video of the puppets in action after the break…

pokemon-dress-1

UPDATE: It’s come to our attention that this design was created by tumblr user purplekecleon and Poprageous used it for their dress without permission from the artist. The dress has since been removed from sale.

Get stylish with just about every Pokémon creature in the Pokédex by wearing this skater dress from Poprageous. It’s covered with pocket monsters, but you don’t have to be a trainer to rein them in. You do have to be prepared to deal with an intense amount of cuteness though.

See a close-up of the pattern after the break.

super misty

We do like our gender bent cosplays around here, but we’re pretty sure this one counts as the buffest Misty ever.

Cosplayer and entertainer Zee “JiNxXx” Kotwal can deadlift 484 pounds, but has just as much fun lifting Pikachu.

From what I can tell, he also seems like a super nice guy.

If you play Pokémon, then you’re used to seeing Officer Jenny everywhere. She cracks down on thieves and somehow manages to ride a motorcycle in a super mini skirt. Cosplayer Siren’s Belle looks exactly like the character in this image; she just needs a Growlithe to complete the look.

Dugtrio costumes

Pokémon is full of odd characters, and the Dugtrio are among them. The strange brown creatures look like fingers, and you never see their bottom halves. One piece of fan art imagines that underneath the dirt, the Dugtrio is really three men with super buff bodies. Well, Redditor Zalot and his friends brought that concept to life at Fanime 2014. Their group cosplay finally revealed what the entire Dugtrio looks like, and it’s not so bad.

See two more pics of the costumes after the break.

poke ball ring box 2

It’s important to keep your wedding rings safe and sound and stored in style until your big day, and Poké Balls do the trick. Leli Moo made these for her wedding, and I love the finish she used on them. She also chose a classy display box for the Poké Balls – just another example of how geeky touches can be appropriate for fancy events!
