If you’re not already excited for Sword & Shield’s Isle of Armor DLC, then this Pokemon cosplay is sure to get you ready and raring to go.

Pokemon Sword & Shield released on Nintendo Switch in November 2019, and broke sales records by shifting over six million copies in just its opening weekend alone.

People fell head over heels for the Generation VIII title, and two sets of DLC – The Isle of Armor and The Crown Tundra – were announced on January 9, expanding the universe even further.

Incredible Klara cosplay

In the addons, there’s a different rival for each version: Klara for Pokemon Sword, and Avery in Shield. Talented cosplayer Wendykkuma shared her take on the former, and it’s almost as though the character has jumped right out of the Nintendo Switch screen itself.

Not much is known about her at this time of writing, but it’s been revealed that she’s in training to become a Poison-type Gym Leader in the Galar region.

The rival sports pink hair with a rather large pink and white bow shaped like Dustox wings on the back of her head – something that the self-proclaimed Nintendo enthusiast pulls off perfectly.

Another shot shows a better look at the Trainer’s uniform – a purple shirt with green drips all over it, showcasing her passion for Poison Pokemon – and a pair of shorts to match.

Her kit also dons the number 881, which can be read in Japanese as goroawase for “dangerous.”

The cosplayer also manages to replicate the character’s shawl as well, as she wears it draped over her battle costume for that comfortable look.

Players can access The Isle of Armor and The Crown Tundra by purchasing the Sword & Shield Expansion Pass on Nintendo Switch for $29.99 (£26.99/€45.00.)

The first DLC will be released before the end of June 2020, and the second during the Fall, with no concrete dates announced yet.
