Halloween is only a week away, and just about everyone's getting in the mood! Whether you're looking for a good scare or ways to make Trick-or-Treating more exciting, there's something for every gamer leading up to this year's All Hallows' Eve. But what if you're not so keen on being spooked? In fact, what if you're more keen on something, well... cute?

Pack your bags and head on over to the official Halloween website of Pikachu and Mimikyu! The spoopiest, cutest, most whimsical little Pokémon-themed haunt to tickle and delight you this Halloween season.

Pikachu and Mimikyu Pair Up to Bring You the Cutest Pokémon Halloween Website Known to Man

The main star of the website (that you can visit here) is the curiously shy Mimikyu, a new Pokémon coming to Pokémon Sun and Moon upon its release on November 18th, 2016.

Who's Mimikyu? Mimikyu is a new Pokémon discovered in the Alola region of Pokémon Sun and Moon. The poor thing is actually quite lonely. Apparently, it thought if it looked just like the ever-popular Pikachu, it would be able to befriend humans, which is why it's always disguised under a cloth.

If that description alone isn't enough to have your heart aching for this floppy-eared Pikachu lookalike, the fact that the website is beseeching you to become one of Mimikyu's friends is!

We're on the lookout for Mimikyu's friends! Current friends: 1,146. Upload a photo to Instagram, Twitter, Vine, etc. along with the hashtag #FriendofMimikyu or #Mimikyu to become one of its friends!

Only 1,146? Mimikyu needs more friends! How can you resist such an adorable request?! It's especially saddening to see all those empty digits...

But what is this photo the instructions speak of? Let's see...

Become One of Mimikyu's Friends! Snap a Photo of Yourself With the World's Loneliest Pokémon

Limited-Edition Halloween stamps available now on popular photo app "Snow!" Pick your favorite stamp and transform yourself into either Pikachu or Mimikyu! Two different stamps available! Upload your photo to Instagram, Twitter, Vine, etc. along with the hashtag #FriendofMimikyu!

It would seem you have to use a special photo app "Snow" to take a picture of yourself together with the special Halloween Pokémon stickers. I'm not a huge fan of crazy photo apps, but even I'll admit these stickers are pretty cute. If you wanna get in on all the Mimikyu and Pikachu action, you can download the app for Android here and for iOS here.

Also, if you plan on uploading your pic, you'll need to use the Japanese hashtags to make sure you're included on Mimikyu's friends list! You can copy them from here: #ミミッキュのお友達 or #ミミッキュ.

But That's Not All! Mimikyu Also Has a Special Song Just for You!

Quite possibly the cutest feature on the special Pokémon Halloween website is the video of Mimikyu's song! Watch the loneliest little Pokémon sing the loneliest little song. It'll be hard to keep him off your "must catch list" NOW!

And here are the translated lyrics (spiced up to rhyme and fit the rhythm) for those who want to know what the floppy-eared cutie is saying:

"Mimikyu's Song"

  • Yo! Yo! Please listen up! This is Mimikyu's rap!
  • I'm not Pikachu, the name is Mimikyu!
  • The loneliest Pokémon, that's me, Mimikyu!
  • Treatin' Mr. Sun like a great big bugaboo!
  • Much prefer the darkness where I can stay out of view
  • All I wanna do is be loved by all
  • Lookin' like Pikachu underneath this shawl
  • Spittin' image of that electric rat
  • Made it myself, yeah! How about that!
  • Never take it off, no, never look inside
  • A curse could await those who don't abide
  • I'm not Pikachu, the name is Mimikyu!
  • I'm not a ghost, no! The name is Mimikyu!
  • I will protect you with my big claws
  • My ten thousand volts might just give you pause
  • You can rely on me through thick and thin
  • So just give me a chance to become your friend
  • I'm not Pikachu, the name is Mimikyu!
  • Let's be friends, yo! I'll be your Mimikyu!
  • I'm not Pikachu, the name is Mimikyu!
  • The loneliest Pokémon, that's me, Mimikyu!
  • I'm not Pikachu, the name is Mimikyu!
  • I'm not a ghost, no! The name is Mimikyu!
  • I'm not Pikachu, the name is Mimikyu!
  • Let's be friends, yo! I'll be your Mimikyu!

And Lastly, Some Adorable Pikachu Visors We Can't Have

Of course, they always have to tease us with things we can't have. These cute Pikachu visors will apparently only be distributed at the Halloween-themed "Jack o' Land" festival on October 29th and 30th at the Yokohama Arena and the Tokyo International Film Festival Special Event on October 29th at the Roppongi Hills Arena. If you're in Japan, nab yourself one! If you're not, well... make your own, I guess!

Do you wanna be Mimikyu's friend? Plan on catching a Mimikyu when Pokémon Sun and Moon comes out? Wanna dress like a Mimikyu for Halloween?!
