Haunter Cinema Scares T-Shirt

Best Halloween 2023 Addition

That Poor Bonsly

Pokemon’s Cinema Scares range of t-shirts gives some of its spookiest Pokemon their very own movie posters. Haunter is the star of this one, Dream Eater, one of its moves, the name of its films, and Bonsly seemingly its potential victim.

S, M, L, XL, 2XL, 3XL, 4XL


  • Not black like most Halloween attire
  • Puts the best middle evolution in Pokemon front and center

Pokemon launched a Cinema Scares line for Halloween 2023, and it features some pretty special additions to its already pretty extensive Halloween t-shirt collection. Like it or not, Gastly and the gang are the Ghost-types that take the spotlight on Pokemon merch during the spooky season, and this t-shirt features Haunter. Haunter doesn’t get enough love in my opinion, so a t-shirt that imagines the Pokemon having its own movie is a top pick. I just worry about the fate of the poor Bonsly it’s chasing. Someone yell cut already!

Gengar Pokemon Sweet Temptations Fitted Long-Sleeve T-Shirt

Best For Trick Or Treating Chaperones

Little Gengar, Big Gengar

Part of the Pokemon Center’s Sweet Temptations collection, this Gengar pick has a little version of the Ghost-type on the chest and a bigger version of the fully evolved Pokemon on the back. Long-sleeved so perfect for wearing at Halloween.


  • Long sleeves to keep you warm in the fall
  • Gengar guarding your candy so you know it’s safe

  • That Gengar on the chest could do with being a little bigger

There’s a lot of Gengar on this list because, and I don’t think this gets said enough, the fully-evolved Ghost-type Pokemon is one of the most popular Pokemon of all, whether it’s Halloween or not. That’s what makes this long-sleeve tee so perfect. You can wear it all year round. Yes, it’s the perfect piece of clothing to wear while you take your more elaborately costumed kids trick or treating this year, but you can also wear it on any other day and it wouldn’t look out of place.

Can You Buy Pokemon Go Clothing In Real Life?

Pokemon Go lets you kit out your avatar in some pretty cool Pokemon attire. Clothing you probably wish you could wear in real life while you play Pokemon Go. Unfortunately, there is very little in the way of official Pokemon Go replica merch. There are some unofficial options out there though if you want to look like your avatar badly enough to go looking for them.

Do Some Pokemon Wear Clothes?

Some Pokemon look like they’re wearing clothes which is a little weird considering they’re wild animals. No wild Pokemon are actually wearing anything, though. The underwear Machoke appears to be wearing is just the pattern on its body. The same applies to Jynx and its “dress”. The only Pokemon wearing clothes are the ones that have been dressed by their trainers.

What Pokemon Represents Halloween?

There’s a simple answer to this one. All Ghost-type Pokemon represent Halloween. The only difficult part is picking just one if you’re buying a t-shirt or looking to sport a solitary Pokemon to celebrate the upcoming spooky season. Whether it’s Gengar, Chandelure, or Mimikyu, there are plenty to choose from when it comes to picking a Pokemon look for Halloween.
