FULLERTON, Calif., Nov. 1 (UPI) -- A California Pokemon Go enthusiast is catching viral attention with an intricate Halloween costume tribute to the game with multiple moving pieces.

Matt Borgelt posted a video to YouTube and Instagram showing off his Pokemon Go Halloween costume, which initially consists of a phone screen on his chest displaying a Pikachu and a Pokestop marker in his hand.

A person helping Borgelt show off the costume spins the Pokestop marker, and it dispenses Pokeballs like the similar items in the augmented reality game.

The person tosses one of the Pokeballs at the Pikachu on Borgelt's torso, which leads the man to trigger a mechanism that makes it appear as though the Pokemon was captured inside the ball.
