When it comes to Pokemon Sword and Shield, fans think they have found everything there is to know about it. The game has been out for several days which has given Pokemon fanatics a chance to comb the game over. Of course, some have decided to put their own mark on the game with mods, and it seems one otaku felt it was time to introduce a certain character to the game.

After all, Scorbunny is plenty cute, but the Pokemon could be even cuter if he looked like a certain ninja. One Naruto fan created a mod that turns the starter's evolution into Kakashi Hatake, and we're decidedly obsessed.

Over on Twitter, the user BruhLookAtThis shared their mod for Pokemon Sword and Shield. The patch, which is available for download, will turn Raboot into a Kakashi cosplayer thanks to an outfit swap.

As you can see in the video above, the mod works rather seamlessly with the game. Raboot is seen in a totally new outfit that mimics the one Kakashi wears. Dressed in a navy blue jumpsuit, Raboot rocks Kakashi's usual face mask and even dons a flak jacket from the Hidden Leaf Village.

Some extra details are added to the mod which makes Raboot even better. The outfit change gives the Pokemon a ninja headband which features a Poke Ball, but the best addition is with Raboot's eye. The cute creature is rocking the Mangekyou Sharingan, so any opponent facing off with this evolution better back off. The Uchiha do not mess around with their Sharingan, and Kakashi has mastered the inherited power ASAP.

Which other new Pokemon should get a Hidden Leaf makeover? Let me know in the comments or hit me up on Twitter @MeganPetersCB to talk all things comics and anime!

Originally created by Masashi Kishimoto for Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump in 1999, Naruto follows a young ninja, with a sealed demon within him, that wishes to become the leader of his home village. The series ran for 700 chapters overall, and was adapted into an anime series by Studio Pierrot and Aniplex that ran from 2002 to 2017. The series was popular enough to warrant a sequel, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations which is set several years after the events of the original Naruto story and features the children of many of its key characters such as Naruto and Hinata.
