Dress Like Ash Ketchum in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Fans have taken the ability to design your own custom clothing in Animal Crossing: New Horizons and run with it in the best way. Island dwellers have dressed in fashionable ensembles inspired by video game characters, popular musicians, TV stars and more.

Even better yet, you can use a kiosk located in the Able Sisters tailor shop to upload and share your own designs as well as download those created by others. One enterprising fan has even created Nookpedia, a free online database collecting these designs.

A Twitter user going by the name salmon_eaterrr has created every single outfit worn by Ash Ketchum, the main character of the popular Pokémon anime series.

On March 24, 2020, salmon_eaterrr uploaded a video welcoming friends to their creation, Alfort Isle (possibly named after the popular sweets brand), showing off the outfits. They began with Ash’s classic “Season 1” look, his iconic blue and white jacket and bright red cap, before moving through the seasons and arriving at his current ensemble.

In addition, salmon_eaterrr has created an outfit based on Ball Guy, the lovable stadium mascot featured in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, the franchise’s most recent installments. Ball Guy also appears on the sign welcoming visitors to the island.

Even better, the Twitter user has also shared the codes needed to download these designs into your own Animal Crossing: New Horizons save the file. Once you have unlocked the Abel Sisters store on your island – accomplished by inviting Mabel the tailor to visit you and then buying 5,000 bells worth of her wares—you too can strut your stuff dressed as everyone’s favorite eager, energetic Pokemon master!

Once again, the supportive Animal Crossing fan community has reached out to help one another. Multilingual fans have helped translate salmon_eaterrr’s Japanese-language Tweets into English in order to help Western players.

The Pokémon franchise was originally inspired by creator Satoshi Tajiri’s fond childhood memories of catching bugs in the Japanese countryside. It seems rather fitting that gamers can now run around catching bugs dressed like Ash as they continue their Animal Crossing adventures!
