A Pokemon cosplayer went viral after she shared her mindblowing transformation into Gym Leader Bea. The artist’s perfect portrayal of the Fighting-type Trainer will leave fans stunned.

The franchise’s latest release, Pokemon Sword & Shield, made its debut in November 2019, and has been a smash hit for the Nintendo Switch. The eighth generation title takes place in the Galar region.

A talented cosplayer brought the game’s popular character Bea to life with her insanely accurate costume. The artist looks so much like the Gym Leader, it’s almost as if the Trainer has kicked her way out of the screen.

Bea is one of the new Gym Leaders in Pokemon Sword & Shield.

Pokemon cosplayer goes viral as Gym Leader Bea

In Sword, owners of the title are treated to the exclusive Gym Leader Bea. The Fighting-type battler oversees the stadium in the small town called Stow-on-Side, and packs a mighty punch that will leave players breaking a sweat.

Bringing the popular character to life, cosplayer ‘Eki Holic‘ shared her incredible costume on Instagram. The artist cleverly showed off her outfit by re-creating Bea’s League Card, which is rewarded to those who beat her.

Eki absolutely nailed the fighter’s signature look, mirroring her short silver bob haircut, as well as her black and orange ribbon headband. She even perfectly depicted her piercing gray eyes.

In another shot posted to social media, the cosplayer mimicked the Trainer’s signature fighting pose by lifting her leg up into the air. Her costume is full of details, including her white and black league jersey as well as her patterned wrist bands.

This isn’t the first time the cosplayer has dressed up as a character from Sword & Shield. In July, Eki went viral after sharing her transformation into Water Gym Leader Nessa.

Despite releasing at the end of 2019, Pokemon Sword & Shield has already become the third fastest-selling title in the entire franchise. Proof that the series has never been more popular.

Those in love with the Galar region are in luck as the Gen VIII release is getting expanded in a major way. This Fall, the game’s second DLC addon The Crown Tundra is set to make its debut.

One skilled cosplayer has tried her hand at recreating Ibuki Mioda from Danganronpa, and has done an excellent job – capturing the character’s outfit in her costume perfectly.

Danganronpa is a game franchise created by Spike Chunsoft, having produced three main titles along with a spinoff in the form of a third-person shooter.

The premise of the first game Trigger Happy Havoc, is that there are 15 students trapped within a school, and the only way to break free is to murder other students and get away with it. For each crime scene, there is a discussion over who the students believe the murderer is.

The game has secured itself a loyal following.

The subsequent games follow a similar premise, and consist of a varied cast of characters who sport unique personalities and interesting character design.

Danganronpa has a substantial following, with many players becoming attached to the fantastic range of characters, and naturally many have chosen to cosplay their favorite people from the game thanks to their appealing aesthetics.

Cosplayer ayuu.exe decided to give Ibuki Mioda a try, an upbeat musician with a quirky personality featured in Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair and Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope’s Peak High School.

Ayuu.exe has managed to replicate Ibuki perfectly. Her intensely dark hair is long and pin-straight, with blue and pink pastel strands, along with a stunningly bold box fringe consisting of accompanying neon colors.

The horns atop her head replicate the use of hair, oversized black and white striped additions that compliment her quirky personality.

Her school uniform is minimalistic but a perfect recreation of the sailor style original, even keeping with the soft pink ribbon that hangs with a white clasp in the centre of her torso. On one hand she wears a scrunchie, and on the other, a pink and black fingerless glove that just reflects how fantastic the attention to detail was in this cosplay.

The recreation was popular among fans, and ayuu.exe’s posts have now reached over 6000 likes combined on Instagram.
