Popular Twitch streamer Jeremy ‘DisguisedToast’ Wang lost a sizeable chunk of change after betting fans that he could a Shiny Wooloo in Pokemon Sword and Shield

After months of waiting, Pokemon fans finally got their hands on Sword and Shield on November 15, marking their first steps into the eighth generation. 

Since then, they’ve been on a hunt to catch ‘em all in the new Galar region, which brings a whole new selection of shiny Pokemon – something that’s been a mainstay of the franchise for some time. These are rarer forms of species that are particularly difficult to find in the wild. 

Just like many other trainers, DisguisedToast has been searching for shinies and went as far as betting with his own fans on Twitch that he’d be able to find a shiny Wooloo inside 15 hours. But, it didn’t quite work out as planned.

DisguisedToast is one of the most popular members of Offline TV.

During his November 17 stream, the Offline TV member set out to find the special Wooloo as he ventured into the new Pokemon title. Considering how frequent the Pokemon appears in the Wild Area, with the right amount of time put into the search, he believe it wouldn’t be too hard a task to complete. 

Having found a number of them already, but none shiny, the streamer gave his fans quite a fright around five hours into the broadcast as he encountered a Wooloo. His screen shook as if something special was happening. Yet, when the battle started, it was just a regular one.


As the hours ticked down towards him losing his bet, DisguisedToast kept on his search, running into a countless number of sheep. 

However, before he knew it, the 15-hour time limit was over and he had to pay up on his bet – handing out 1,000 free subscriptions to his channel. While his fan may have celebrated, the streamer’s wallet certainly took a hit as he had to shell out $5,000. 


Now, some viewers may want to repay the streamer for delivering on an enjoyable outcome, but one thing that makes DisguisedToast different on Twitch is that he doesn’t accept donations.

He also recently urged viewers to take their subscriptions and help out smaller broadcasters. But, they’ll probably just keep subbing to him and dropping some fire Wooloo memes instead.

Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek was left in awe after Sykkuno managed to shoot him dead on the OTV Rust server, and it was safe to say he was impressed by the streamer’s aim, saying “you killed me, you’re amazing!”

The Offline TV Rust sever has been a huge talking point since the start of this year, as with the enormous host of streamers participating there are endless amounts of content for fans to consume on the daily.

The server even ended up needing to be split into two after people’s varying playstyles caused some tension and calls for a need to separate PVP-focused players and roleplay-focused players.

While it was originally released in 2013, Rust has experienced a surge in popularity thanks to the OTV server.

However, that’s not to say that there haven’t been plenty of iconic moments between streamers, as even though the game can get pretty violent, the vast range of streamer interactions has led to some great scenes for fans.

That was the case for Sykkuno fans when he managed to kill shroud, leaving everyone impressed with his skills.

While they were competing for the Oil Rig, Sykkuno managed to get shroud with his gun as he jumped, and it didn’t seem like shroud expected it at all, dying with a bewildered “no, Sykkuno!”

Sykkuno’s hand immediately flew to his mouth, laughing and apologizing for the abrupt kill.

Michael sounded equally as impressed as he did betrayed, after a few seconds of silence saying “Sykkuno you killed me, you’re amazing!” But the compliments didn’t end there, with Micheal adding, “you destroyed me!” and even “you’re the better gamer, man” to which Sykkuno replied, “no, no, most definitely not.”

Sykkuno has talked previously about how he’s a “humongous fan of shroud” in the past, so this interaction definitely proved to be a positive one for the rising streamer.

One fan on Twitter said, “Sykkuno downed shroud and even shroud is proud of him,” another saying “that Sykkuno/shroud friendly PVP was beautiful to watch… what in the wholesome rivalry.”

The PVP moment was definitely an entertaining one all round, and while the results were unexpected, no one was more impressed than shroud himself.
