Very important news, y’all—joining Team Skull is possible. Over the weekend, Magfest turned into Po Town as Team Skull cosplayers took over the con.

Pokémon Sun and Moon’s “evil” Team Skull were the breakout stars from a game already packed with inventive and fun characters, so it’s no surprise that cosplayers would latch onto them en masse. In addition to getting completely owned by a Snorlax cosplayer, as seen in the above video, Team Skull was pretty much just everywhere at Magfest. Seeing the sheer magnitude of these loveable failures IRL is charming, especially because more often than not they seemed to be in character.

If you ran into a gaggle of Team Skull grunts, it was pretty likely that they’d take the opportunity to chant their group’s name at you. Here’s a few more highlights from the con.

I saw these guys everywhere, haha! MAGFest was so amazing this year. I bought David Wise a beer, had him sign my DKC1 & 2 carts n’ Battletoads vinyl, had drinks and a chat with Panzer Dragoon Saga composer Saori Kobayashi...good times! And the concerts were amazing as always. Happy to see the festival covered on Kotaku, hope you guys did some coverage of the concerts, too!
