Charizard is a staple in the Pokemon universe as one of its most recognizable and beloved creatures.

With over a whopping 6.6 million views, 1.1 million likes, and 6,300 comments, this Tiktokker has gone viral with their Charizard cosplay creation.

The TikTok features a step-by-step creation of the impressive outfit, using PVC pipe and large amounts of red/orange cloth to replicate the dragon’s color.

And the results speak for themselves, made even more intense by Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s verse in Face Off playing in the background.

Such a creation had to have taken this trainer a considerable amount of time to get right, from the Charizard itself, even to the Ash accompanying the Pokemon.

LittleJem, the user who posted this TikTok, has shown off the Charizard cosplay previously alongside some of her other impressive takes, each having their own impressive attention to detail.
