The cosplay aims to replicate the Pokemon performer Serena, known as a traveling companion of Ash. She made her first appearance in the Pokemon universe in 2013, as part of the ‘Kalos, Where Dreams and Adventures Begin!’ TV series. 

She posted the impressively accurate pictures to Instagram on September 27, with many fans quick to commend just how accurate the cosplay is, including the trademark hat and sunglasses perched on top of the head. 

Similarly, the skirt and long socks are nailed on. She even clutches a PokeBall to complete the outfit.
