Best Lt. Surge Costume Guide
Lt. Surge from Pokemon is the tall, muscular guy who was the League Gym Leader of Vermilion City known as Vermilion Gym. Ash Ketchum took a huge leap in challenging Lt. Surge to battle their Pokemon, which Lt. Surge found quite comical. Ash wanted that Thunder Badge that Lt. Surge gives to trainers that defeat him. Lt. Surge believes that Pokemon should be trained solely on strength, which makes sense if you look at how he is physically built! Get the look of the Lightning Lieutenant with this Lt. Surge costume guide.
Cosplay Lt. Surge’s military style with a Green Tank Top, Camo Pants with a Military Style Belt, and some Combat Boots to get his military look! Add some Dog Tags, a pair of Sport Sunglasses, and temporary Blonde Hair Dye to pull off Surge’s specific look. Don’t forget about his well-trained Pokemon with a Raichu Plush!
Lt. Surge Cosplay Costumes
Dressing as Lt. Surge from the Pokemon series for Halloween or cosplay is much like dressing up in a military uniform! He wears quite a bit of camouflage. You can get most of the items for his look by shopping at a military surplus store! Regardless of where you get the costume pieces, you’ll need a pair of camo pants, a green tank top, dog tags, a military belt, and combat boots. Don’t forget to wear a pair of sport sunglasses. If you don’t already have blonde hair dye you’ll need some hair dye from a costume shop. Then, add a Raichu plush doll that can be found at nearly any toy store.
You can recreate an epic Pokemon battle by having one of your friends dress as Ash Ketchum accompanied by a Pikachu doll. This will instantly transform Lt. Surge’s costume into a group outfit! You can also add in other fellow Pokemon characters like Brock and Misty or Jessie and James from Team Rocket.
About Lt. Surge
It’s in season one when Lt. Surge first appears on the Pokemon series, and he is being challenged by Ash Ketchum to battle their Pokemon. While Surge focuses merely on strength and agility, Ash knows that the connection between the Pokemon and their trainer has a much larger impact on how the Pokemon performs. Fortunately for Lt. Surge, his Raichu completely took over Ash’s Pikachu and won the battle with hardly more than the blink of an eye.
Even though Surge is known for being a masterful trainer, Ash finally came back and defeated Surge in another battle which led to Ash ultimately receiving the Thunder Badge. A win is a win, and the arrogant Surge congratulated Ash in his victory!
