Cryaotic goes crazy after Pokemon NPCs give him ‘trip-inducing shrooms’

The Pokemon games have always been rated E for everyone – but as Twitch streamer Cryaotic discovered, that doesn’t mean the dialogue can’t be cheeky or suggestive for older audiences, too.

While playing Pokemon Sword and Shield, the Twitch star spoke to a non-playable character (NPC) who gave him a bag of mixed mushrooms. While it’s pretty standard for random characters in RPGs to give the player items after talking to them, the follow-up dialogue was very suspicious.

Cryaotic read Rod’s text and couldn’t help but chuckle the word “shrooms” in response to how over-the-top the play on words was.

“I don’t plan on being tripped up on my journey, so better you take it than me,” the character said, prompting a big laugh from the Pokemon trainer. The pun ‘tripping’ was likely related to psychedelic or ‘magic’ mushrooms, which can cause visual and auditory hallucinations for those who imbibe them.

For his part, Cryaotic couldn’t believe this bit of dialogue was actually included in the game. “What the f*ck?!” he shouted.

“That wasn’t even subtle,” he continued, still flabbergasted at the NPC’s remark. As it turned out, though, yet another nearby character had a drug-related joke to make.

The popular streamer approached a nearby character on a bike who then gave him even more mushrooms. This time, the trainer joked that they shouldn’t have had the mushrooms on their person.

“I don’t know how this ended up in my pocket… so here – why don’t you take it!” the biker, named Yuuko, said. “The question is… how did it get in my pocket?”

While neither NPC specified that he items were drugs, it was quite clear the localization team was having some fun and while still managing to keep things PG – certainly a nice touch for anyone who can understand the joke.

In Pokemon Sword and Shield, mushrooms are used for cooking new foods that can be fed to your team to replenish health, gain EXP and other such benefits.

The original Pokemon games were released all the way back in 1996 in Japan and 1998 in the United States. Fans of the series who started with the first games when they came out are now in their adult years.

It’ll be fun to see what other comedic dialogue intended for older audiences is in the game.

YouTube sensation Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson is once again putting his wealth to great use by letting fans literally send pictures and videos to the moon after buying space on a NASA rover.

On January 24, the YouTube star announced that fans can start sending him their content in the form of photos or videos, and he will put them on an official NASA rover. The only catch is that it costs $10 to do so and videos need to be just one second long.

“Later this year NASA is putting a rover on the moon and I managed to buy storage space on it. I thought it’d be fun to let you guys put whatever you want on the moon,” MrBeast said in a follow-up to his announcement tweet.

In a video detailing the new project on his website, Donaldson explains how he thought it would be cool to create the world’s first digital time capsule.

“Every single one of you that puts something on the moon will get a certificate of authenticity,” he elaborated. “So, for decades to come you can prove to people that you literally put something on the moon.”

According to MrBeast, the possibilities are endless (as long as it’s legal) with fans being able to put a picture of their mom, dog, Elon Musk, or the three together.

“This is your first and possibly only chance to ever put a photo or video on the moon,” he added. “I genuinely need your help to help preserve humanity.”

How to enter

Basically, how it works is really straight forward. All fans have to do is follow these instructions.

First, head on over to MrBeast’s site and select which bundle you want, as some more expensive options come with a T-shirt or hoodie.

Next, pay to add partake in the experience and select what video or photo you want to go to the moon and upload it to MrBeast’s site.

How to go to the moon with MrBeast
Making it to the moon has never been easier.

That’s it, you’re done. MrBeast’s team will load the content into a “moon-ready” harddrive and NASA will send the hard drive to the moon.

If you know anyone who is really interested in space, this could be a really cool surprise for them. Go ahead and reach for the stars.
