This Sexy Ball Girl Cosplay from Pokemon Sword and Shield is the Stuff of Dreams and Nightmares
Pokemon Sword and Shield's Ball Guy is infamous among players, and this cosplayer decided to pay tribute to the character in a unique way.
Fans of the recent entry in the Pokemon franchise, Pokemon Sword and Shield, are divided about Ball Guy: a seemingly benevolent man who gifts the player with different Pokeballs throughout the game. Some think of him to be truly friendly with good intentions, while others believe he has more sinister motives. This gender-bending cosplay, called Ball Girl, somehow combines both of these:
Also, is it just me or does the second pose against the wall look way more… seductive? Regardless it’s a strangely adorable cosplay and the cosplayer really sells it with their endearing enthusiasm.

In the recent Nintendo Direct two new expansion packs for Pokemon Sword and Shield, called Isle of Armor and the Crown Tundra, were announced with plenty of details. The former will launch in June 2020 and the latter sometime in Fall 2020. A remake of Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX for Nintendo Switch was also revealed and you can check out our preview of the demo here. Finally the new Pokemon Home service is set to drop in February and will be available for both the Switch and mobile devices.
According to the latest NPD data, the latest installment in the long running series has the highest launch month dollar sales in Pokemon franchise history. And for the month of November, Sword was the third best selling game, the double pack including both titles ranking at fourth place, and Shield being in fifth place. However, if you combined those sales then total it would bring them to the number two spot.
In other recent news, Pokemon Sword and Shield are already the eighth best-selling Nintendo Switch games of all time at six million units sold during its launch weekend alone. Check out pictures of the game’s launch event held at Nintendo NYC. And in not so cheery recent news, Pokemon Company International is looking to sue leakers who spread around pictures of their then unreleased official strategy guide.
Pokemon Sword and Shield released for Nintendo Switch on November 15th.
