How to re-customize your Pokemon Go trainer!

Updated February 2017 with all the new avatar customization changes coinciding with the release of Gen 2 Pokémon. Dress 'em all!

Pokémon Go is unleashing Gen 2 and, at the same time, radically increasing your options when it comes to trainer costumes and clothes for your avatar. Now, not only can you change up your hat, shirt, pants, backpack, shoes, and more, you can get rid of them completely! (Well, not nude naked completely, but board-short close!)

There's also signs of much more to come, including additional clothing options you can get for medals and levels, for events, and for purchase. All of it is backed by a new Style system. Here's how it works!

How do you change what your Pokémon Go Trainer is wearing?

  2. Tap on the trainer button at the bottom left.
  3. Tap on the menu (looks like '☰') button at the bottom right.

  6. Tap on the Clothing button to see options.
  7. Tap on the No clothing button to remove that piece of clothing. (No, you can't remove tops or pants! Stop it!)
  8. Tap the Style you want to get additional options.
  9. Tap on the Color button to choose the look you want.

Are those all the options?

Currently, but rumor has it more hats, shirts, pants, shoes, gloves, socks, and backpacks will be coming our way soon.

Some will be made available when you get medals or advance in level, which means they'll be more exclusive and only available to trainers who have been playing for a while.

Others will be available for in-app purchase so, if you see something you simply have to have, you'll need to drop Poké Coins to get it. (Grab those Gym bonuses, get those hats!)

There may even be seasonal or special event clothing available. If done right, it could be great for both players and the game.
