CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla. -- If you're still hoping to get a "Poke-vest," you're out of luck.  The pink reflector vests given to Pokemon Go players are out of stock!

The Punta Gorda Police Department was handing out the vests this week as part of the  the "Dress Bright at Night" program.  Many players were using the vests while they played the game to stand out at night.

But while the department says they're out of the vests, they still have the clip-on flashing lights, and hope to get a new supply of vests very soon.
