Can I get one PokéStop, one smart phone, two trainers, and a Pikachu for 500, Alex?

And while we're on the topic of PokéStops...

A Girl and Her Ghastly

They seemed to be quite the popular choice for a lot of Halloween goers! Reddit user KnittenKitten shows off her take on the popular Pokémon GO symbol along with pet balloon Ghastly. If he only had his iconic purple flame, he'd look like he popped right out of the game itself!

I Choose You, Pikachu!

Pokémon trainer and Reddit user UrbanDryad is all set for her night of Catch-or-Treating together with her trusty Pikachu... and his trusty Eevee? That's some serious detail put into that trainer outfit!

They Told Me to Take a Street-Car Named Desire

One zealous Pokémon GO fan (and sister of Reddit user DrWeeGee) has upped the ante on intricate Halloween design, heading out for some regal treat-collecting as leader of Team Mystic, Blanche. And, of course, we'd be woe not to mention her adorable Pika-pup!

PokéStop in the Name of Love!

Another PokéStop design, and an amazingly well-done one at that! From the blue hair, to the "lure" hearts, to all the little items like potions and razz berries, Reddit user say_peanuts really went the extra mile with this one!

Pun is What You Make of It

For a clever twist on typical Pokémon GO designs, Reddit user treyyates brings you... Vincent van Pokémon Gogh?! You haven't seen anything until you've seen legendary painter Vincent van Gogh with a Pokéball!

And the award for most jaw-dropping costume goes to...

...this absolutely ingenious costume from YouTube user mattcyborgelt!

This fully interactive Pokémon GO costume includes a spinning PokéStop that actually shoots out Pokéballs, and a giant smartphone with Pikachu that can instantly change into a Pokéball at your (no doubt excellent) toss, complete with ball shaking effects and golden stars!

If that's not about the most innovative costume you've ever seen, I'll eat my hat!
