There's very few fans as devoted and creative as cosplayers. It takes a lot of brainpower to come up with a good idea, and days of work to put together a great outfit. Which makes it only appropriate to give their incredible effort the attention it deserves. There are plenty of IPs that these talented lot draw from for their impressive outfits, but today, we thought we'd celebrate the pocket monster lovers.

Tia Senpai's hilarious cosplay could only be improved if she picked an Ash cosplayer and bugged him every ten steps or so for an entire day.
