Epic Groudon cosplay will stomp its way into Pokemon fans' hearts

An insanely skilled Pokemon cosplayer has literally brought Groudon to life with an incredible cosplay that looks as though it’s stomped right out of the game itself.

Groudon first appeared in Gen III as the Legendary mascot for Pokemon Ruby, and it is part of the Weather Trio alongside Kyogre and Rayquaza.

Talented Reddit user ‘blastoise_irl’ transformed game into reality with their amazing take on the giant Rock-type monster.


Best Groudon cosplay ever!

On January 30, the Pokefan shared their costume to Reddit, where they wowed the community with just how epic it looks. While many cosplayers dress up in clothes that mimic the character they're playing, the user's Groudon was literally a giant suit.

The video they shared shows the monster parading around, and really does look like it's jumped right out of the Game Boy Advance screen and into reality.

Not only is the color of its red skin completely perfect to the 2002 title, every other detail is also there too, including the white spikes, black detailing, and gray underbelly.



The cosplayer even stuck a few poses such as a sideways stomp and walking on the spot like the Pokemon, really capturing that fiery atmosphere the monster brings.

Though it's difficult to pick the best part of the look, the incredible accuracy of the face is something to be marveled at – it's simply crazy that it looks that much alike.

While the costume is insanely cool, wearing it is apparently not. When a commenter asked "I bet that feels like you're inside a Volcano with the heat wearing that," referencing the magma that Groudon sits in in Ruby," Blastoise replied with "Like swimming in the magma pool."

The cosplay is super hot to wear.


It's definitely one of the best cosplays we seen to date, and we're not the only ones who think so – the post has gathered over 31,500 upvotes at the time of writing.

If you'd like to play Ruby but don't have a Game Boy Advance, Nintendo released a remake of Generation III called Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire on the 3DS, bringing to the modern day for both new and old players.
