Ball Guy from Pokémon Sword and Shield Gets Official Emoji, Internet Thrusts in Excitement

Ball Guy Hero


Out of all the controversies dividing the fandom from the latest Pokémon games, Sword and Shield, one aspect that literally everyone can agree on; Ball Guy is the best. To celebrate Ball Guy, the official Pokémon accounts in Japanese and English have been taken over by the dashing guy, with an official emoji attached to a hashtag (in Japanese).




The Japanese account promised that if the hashtag was used a certain amount of times, Ball Guy would give out some free Poké Balls. And boy was the hashtag used…






Love for Ball Guy poured out all over Twitter, with the hashtag going from being used 35,600 times to just shy of 120,000 times in just a few hours, becoming the top trending hashtag in Japan. Masaaki Iwane, a long-time animation director and animator on the Pokémon anime, even joined in on the fun (embedded above), asking Ball Guy for „ordinary PokéBalls please.“

Ball Guy could barely keep up the thrusts but made good on giving out some balls to everyone. For players of Pokémon Sword and Shield, if you go to Mystery Gift, and inserting the two codes will net you some of Bally Guy’s precious balls. If you use the code “1YAHAYA,” you’ll be gifted a Heavy Ball, a Lure Ball, and a Beast Ball. Using the code “K0UN1NMASC0T,” will gift you a Fast Ball, a Moon Ball, and a Level Ball. And the final code „0KUGAFUKA1B0RU“ gets you a Love Ball, a Friend Ball, and a Dream Ball. The codes work until January 15.


You can show your support for Ball Guy on Twitter by using the two hashtags (in Japanese), “#ボールガイ” (Ball Guy) or “#ボールガイチャレンジ” (Ball Guy Challenge). It’s not known if Ball Guy will present us with more of his balls, but we can only hope.
