What to Wear to Catch Different Pokémon Types
Virtual monsters are taking over our feeds and when they look as cute as Pokémon, we really can’t complain.
Pokémon GO hasn’t reached our shores just yet but we’re making preps in advance. But before we talk about how to catch these cute little buggers, let’s see what to wear to catch the different types of Pokémon out there.
Join the hunt! Hidden in each of the OOTDs below is a sneaky little Pokémon. Can you catch them all?
Not surprisingly, Ghost type Pokémon have been reported to show up at quiet open spaces at night. Opt for dark clothing to camouflage yourself against your surroundings. After all, when sneaking up on wild Pokémon (or any wild thing for that matter), it’s probably not wise to announce your arrival in a bright yellow top.
Examples: Gastly, Haunter, Gengar

You’ll be finding yourself at pools, lakes, beaches and the like to find Water Pokémon. Don’t just stand by on land, hoping to catch those coming up for air. Get in there! Spectators never win, only committed competitors do! The best Pokémon trainers always come prepared and in this case it means donning your best swimsuit. Regular clothes will only slow you down. No can do.
Examples: Squirtle, Psyduck, Krabby

Fighting & Grass Type
Kill two birds with one stone in a single day. Put on your best sports gear and head to the park or golf course in the morning to find yourself some Grass type creatures. Then, hop on over to your neighbourhood gym or sports centre. Pretend to lift some weights while secretly capturing the Fighting type Pokémon sitting atop that buff guy’s head. You’d probably have gotten a better workout than him at the end of the day anyway.
Examples: Bulbasaur, Oddish, Machop

Naturally, Ice types can be found in places with actual snow or ice. So if you happen to be travelling to a wintry location soon, skip the tour and go hunting instead because, Pokémon. Just make sure to dress in warm clothing! Sticking around in Malaysia? Well, we can’t guarantee it but perhaps cooler places like Genting Highlands or Fraser’s Hills will house some of these cuties. Alternatively, try an ice bucket.
Examples: Dewgong, Cloyster, Lapras

Everybody wants a Pikachu. But how? Electric type Pokémon appear in areas classified as ‘industrial’, for example, schools, college campuses, dry areas with lots of concrete and cities in general. We recommend sticking to the ‘camouflage’ approach again by picking monochrome outfits and blending into your surroundings.
Examples: Pikachu, Magneton, Voltorb
