Pokimane is one of the biggest streamers on Twitch, boasting an astonishing 3.6 million followers while streaming a wide variety of content. She also shares some highlights of her broadcasts on her YouTube channel, which is equally impressive at 4.1 million subscribers.
In one of these highlights, Imane met an unexpectedly knowledgeable nine-year-old Fortnite player, who gave her some solid tips while he coached her to a very close win.
Right off the bat her teammate was calling out commands and trying to come up with the best strategy to win. The mish-mash duo managed to do incredibly well thanks to her teammate’s calls, but he was eliminated at the death, leaving Pokimane in a 1vs1 to close out the game.
This was when the coaching really came into play. “That high-ground is in the circle, but you got it, you got it!” he said as he cheered her on, and encouraged Anys to make her way to the favorable position.
It all came down to a final battle with Imane and her opponent racing to get a good angle on the other by building.
Meanwhile, her teammate kept supporting and coaching her, chiming in with: “you got this” and “don’t let him knock you down” as she was building. The fight ended shortly after, with Pokimane taking the win as her opponent fell from the massive tower, no doubt due to a lack of coaching.
Both players seemed ecstatic with the victory, as the streamer praised her teammate for all the help. With Fortnite having so many players it’s unlikely they’ll ever meet again, but Imane will no doubt remember this nine-year-old coach.
