This is a franchise chock-full of awesome outfits, so who are you surprised no one's jumped on the wagon and cosplayed?

And if you know where pictures are of someone dressed as anyone on someone's list here, by all means share!

I'm surprised I've never seen a Hazel (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Hazel). She basically dresses like a magical girl (http://maco.cha.to/pokemon/pipipi/comic01.html). And the series was released outside Japan, unlike most of the Pokemon manga out there.

On the subject of manga, Mitsumi (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Mitsumi), especially in her...*cough* "alternate outfit" (spoilers ahead!) would make an AWESOME cosplay. I would think people would jump on a character who's basically "adult Dawn".

From the games, Supurna (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Supurna) is basically a gijinka Wingull (no picture on the site, but "human Wingull" basically sums up her clothing). Would be great for a Ranger group or an actual Wingull gijinka.

The Go-Rock Quads (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Go-Rock_Quads) would make for an awesome costumed concept! Four musically themed siblings who play their motto every time they appear! It's even rumored, due to a leftover sprite, that there was meant to be a fifth!

ANY OF THE FRONTIER BRAINS (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Frontier_Brain). Yes I know some people have cosplayed Caitlin, Darach, Dahlia, and I think I've seen a Tucker and a Noland before, but that's about it. Even Brandon, and I think he's the most popular of the Brains! And of course, where the Brains go, there has to be a Scott (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Scott).

And who could forget the fabulous Miror B. (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Miror_B.)?

From the show, I'm sort of amazed at the lack of Sir Aaron (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Sir_Aaron)! He even has a canon expy, he's so popular! But as far as cosplay goes...?

And really while I'm not *surprised* that no one's cosplayed this last one, I am disappointed because he easily has the most awesome outfit in all of Team Rocket. That would be movie 4's Iron Mask Marauder (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Vicious). Of course, you'd have to have basically a perfect body to pull it off, but it would be well worth it!

I agree with all the ones you brought up.

Maybe I'll try to get my cosplay group to do The Go-Rock Quads just to give them some love and thier outfits are just awesome. ^-^

I'm a little surprised you don't see more awesome mascots of pokemon at cons. I myself have a Rayquaza Mascot and I love it to death.

I'd love to see the in game/anime rivals that AREN'T named Gary Oak.

Oh Oh Oh I saw someone cosplaying Silver/Rival at Anime Boston this year. He was actually walking around with Gold. XD
It was great they kept fighting with each other.

I would definitely love someone to do Lady Venus. I could actually do it myself, but money is kind of an issue, plus I'm working on Anthea which is probably someone nobody would bother cosplaying.

By the way, there actually was a Miror B. at Youmacon last time...

I would love to see three people cosplay the Shadow Triad, though...

And I still have not seen a Charon anywhere...

I've seen a Charon, but not at a convention. She posted her cosplay on LJ's TGComm community. It's locked but I'll ask her if I can link it.

I see more Silvers than Garys! But it would be nice to see a Wally!

B'awww ;A;

I'd love to see some non-Umbreon Eeveelutions. Don't get me wrong, Umbreon is one of my favourite Pokémon but I see a lot of Umbreon gijinka. I'd love to see a Flareon being pulled off well!

I'd kill to see a really well done Cyrus (like has the creepiness down and everything), and one of the non Jessie/James/Meowth/Giovanni named Rockets (Domino, the boys from the Raikou special, Sebastian, etc).

The movie exclusive characters need more love too. I've never seen a Zero even, and he's pretty popular. A movie antagonists/villains group would be amazing ;A;

the boys from the Raikou special

If I saw a Basho and Buson (Atilla and Hun) I'd die a very happy Rocket fan.

I've seen some...but only on Japanese sites. And no Sebastian, which is a shame.

A full movie baddie group would be awesome! I saw a great Mewtwo at Kumoricon a few years ago but I think he was supposed to be gameverse. I've seen a few Jirarudans (which is awesome--didn't think anybody would go as him!), and I think a Butler once, but not so much as a Molly Hale!
And I don't think the Zanna and Rion that showed up at the movie premere would count as "cosplay" if they were being hired to be the models there...

Well I plan to add to the Jirarudan herd this AWA, but a movie baddie group would indeed be the most awesome thing ever. That would include, what, Mewtwo, Jiri, Molly, IMM/Vicious, Annie and Oakly, Butler, Phantom, Zero, Marcus, Kodai, and the guy from the new B&W ones? Yeah, I highly doubt that'll ever come together anywhere, but hey, a girl can dream.

I wonder how much recognition I'll get as Jiri? :O

This isn't really something I haven't seen but more like something I've seen too often

has anyone noticed that when people go as umbreon they mostly go with shiny as opposed to normal :l

I like the normal form XD

Yes, her hair is...special. Perhaps it could be made with a wire base.

Well, the last con I went to completely lacked a Cheren, but had even lesser known characters like Ingo. At the same place, I saw a Throh, yet no Sawk. I'd have to agree with the point that there aren't enough of the frontier brains (Want to see a Thorton), but the Elite Four is also lacking (Also really want to see a Marshal) surprisingly enough.

In my area i havent even seen an ash in b&w cosplay
