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.

Ever seen a League of Legends cosplay so good that Riot can’t help but share it with the world? Well, now you have, with Sweet Angel’s take on Akali taking League players by storm.

Akali is one of League of Legends’ most popular characters to cosplay. Whether it be her default skin, or the mega-popular K/DA variant, people love to show off as the Ionian assassin.

However, few manage to grab the eyes of Riot as much as Sweet Angel. The talented Italian cosplayer decided to take on Akali as her most recent project, and while the costume looks simple, it was anything but.

Akali is one of the most popular League champions to cosplay, but few catch the eyes of Riot.

“I thought it was a simple costume, but it required a lot more attention and time than I thought,” she told fans on her website.

It took Sweet Angel about 100 hours all up to create the Akali cosplay ⁠— and you can see every bit of hard work and time that went into it. From the handmade wig, to the dress, and even Akali’s smoke bombs, Sweet Angel didn’t miss a beat.

Everything that you see was basically handmade. Sweet Angel sewed all of the fabrics together, stitched everything up, and made it tailored not only to herself, but true to life to Akali’s design.

She even designed Akali’s signature Kana, using EVA foam so she can carry it around without too much hassle.

She added every detail to the weapon like she did the costume too, from the leather handle all the way down to the marks and blemishes on the battle-worn blade.

The cosplay is so good that even the official League of Legends account couldn’t help but react. Sweet Angel got a retweet on the cosplay from the near five million follower account, and they don’t hand those out lightly.

As for her next cosplay, Sweet Angel hasn’t revealed her plans just yet. However, she’s got a few more shoots on the way, and if they’re anything like this Akali cosplay, they’ll be worth a gander.
