"My island is now fully equipped with a pokemon stadium!" they said. The post included four mind blowing photos, which showed the Game-Freak inspired area. The player created a Pokeball in the middle, and even included seats for viewers.

Creatively, they used red roses on the top half circle of their island, and filled out the bottom half with white flowers so an aerial view of his entire map would looks like one massive ball.
Here’s a video after I planted my roses and put down some paths. So many roses. Definitely over 500 at least. pic.twitter.com/ZRIYalg9RP
