A Pokemon mod turns Sword & Shield’s infamous Pokeball Guy into a Max Raid battle, transforming the mysterious mascot into pure nightmare fuel that will give anyone nightmares.
Pokemon Sword and Shield released in 2019, and the community has taken to many elements in the game, with Pokeball Guy being one of the more bizarre additions to the eighth generation RPG title.
However, one curious fan dared to ask the question “what would the mascot look like as a Max Raid battle?” and made it a reality with a hilariously terrifying mod that will make fans shiver.
Horrifying Pokeball Guy mod
Pokeball Guy was first introduced in Sword & Shield, and helps promote Galar region’s League by handing out free balls to trainers. The mysterious mascot quickly became a fan favorite to meme on.
YouTuber ‘ProsafiaGaming‘ posted the hilarious mod on his channel on January 5 with the description “This video shows what happens if Ball Guy was a Pokemon and a fightable Den Raid Boss.”
The modder used Machoke’s model to swap out with Pokeball Guy, and has the character towering over four brave trainers as they try to take the mad mascot down. The video even sees the mascot perform every single Dynamax Move in the game.
Prosafia has a history of creating mods similar to this, and even released a hilarious clip that shows fans what it would be like if PokeBall Guy was the Galar League champion.
In the second video, we see a full match play out between the trainer and the mascot – except he’s using all the moves and animations of Champion Leon as he faces off in the game’s final league battle.
The gaming channel is dedicated to making creative videos documenting popular titles, and has amassed over 2.2 million subscribers with its unique content.
Despite some backlash from fans over the Game Freak reusing assets, Sword & Shield went on to smash records, selling over six million units in its opening weekend.
Pokemon continues to deliver for Nintendo, as the eighth generation Pokemon title had the best month for the franchise in sales in December, according to the tracking site NPD.
