Pokemon Ultra Sun and Pokemon Ultra Moon will launch on the Nintendo 3DS family of systems Nov. 17. To celebrate, Niantic added a set of new avatar items to Pokemon Go, inspired by the setting of Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon: the Alola Region.

Specifically, players now have access to free tropical items for both male and female avatars, which match those worn by the main characters in the Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon games. For instance, players can dress the game’s female avatar in a flowery shirt, white shorts, a tropical hat and more.

Players can wear every Alola-inspired item at the same time, or mix and match individual pieces with items they already have.
