"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.

As if that wasn't impressive enough, zapsuit revealed that their whole island was terraformed in the shape of a "into a whole a*s Pokeball." Yes, you read that right – their island is actually a giant Pokeball.

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.
