Imane ‘Pokimane‘ Anys is one of Twitch’s biggest streamers, but is now questioning why she has a fanbase at all after watching some of her classic clips.

When you livestream enough of your life, you’re bound to capture some interesting moments, especially when you play a variety of different games.

While watching a compilation video of herself playing notoriously rage-inducing Getting Over It, Pokimane was in hysterics at the ‘cringe’ she created, wondering how anybody was able to watch her.

Pokimane / twitchPokimane is one of Twitch’s biggest streamers.

Getting Over It has been a gold mine for Twitch streamers as it’s a simple game to pick up but has the potential to be one of the most frustrating things ever. 

As she plummeted to the bottom of the level or passed an important obstacle, Pokimane would let out a shriek. However, when she watched a video compilation of all those shrieks, she realized how annoying it could be.

“How do you guys listen to me?” she asked through laughter. “How do you guys listen to this shit?”

It’s a fair question to ask since loud screaming would no doubt upset a lot of people, but she has remained popular despite it so she’s clearly doing something right.

If you’ve played even a couple minutes of Getting Over It you would fully understand why she was reacting the way she was.

Entertainment is key to becoming a successful streamer and Pokimane is able to deliver that on a consistent basis, which is likely why her view count remains high despite cringey moments like grunting and screaming while playing a game.

She crossed the three million follower plateau earlier in the year, proving that her success on Twitch is no accident and there’s no reason to change what she has been doing.

A Pokemon Trading Card Game livestream ended in disaster after it was quickly discovered that the booster packs were fake. The YouTube channel spent over $375k on the 1st Edition base set box, only for it to be resealed. 

Despite making its debut in 1999, the Pokemon TCG has exploded in popularity over the past two years. The hobby hit an all-time high in October when influencer Logan Paul opened a base set booster box he paid $216k for while livestreaming.

However, things didn’t work out as well for another YouTube channel who paid $375k for the same item. The livestream unboxing of the rare collectible quickly turned tragic when it was discovered that the TCG item was actually fake.

Rare Pokemon TCG box opening ends in complete disaster

The event was hosted by YouTube channel ‘Dumb Money Live’ and included popular Pokemon content creators such as Lee ‘Leonhart’ Seinfeld. The rare 1st Edition base set booster box was bought for a record-breaking $375 through Logan Paul’s collectible trader ‘Collectables Guru.’

“The owner of the box supposedly bought three boxes when he was a child. They sat in the gun safe the entire time,” the Pokemon dealer explained. However, they quickly realized something was amiss after breaking the seal. Several booster packs were different colors, and some weren’t even 1st Edition.

“Oh no. That is a major f**king deal!” Guru exclaimed. The personality opening the box then revealed the problem: “It’s not even base set cards, these are Jungles! Wow. This is a resealed box. It’s random!”

(Topic starts at 35:41)

Upset, Collectable Guru called up the seller and explained that the box was resealed. “We opened the box literally live and they’re resealed packs. There is like base set 2 mixed in, half of them are 1st Edition. But they are all resealed, this is absolutely unacceptable. How is this going to be taken care of immediately?”

Stunned by the whole thing, Leonhart stood by and said, “Oh my gosh, I was not expecting that.” Guru came back and updated the group and explained that the seller had two other boxes that they were going to open first before bringing them back to the YouTubers.

The YouTubers were floored after the rare Pokemon box was fake.

To add salt to the wound, the box opening was done on stream for charity. Dumb Money Live gave an update and addressed the situation a day later stating: “I don’t know a single person in my network that hasn’t been defrauded as an investor. You have to give sellers a benefit to make this right.”

At the time of writing, the situation has not been entirely rectified. The channel will open a booster pack on October 30 live to verify that the second box is actually real. However, it appears that if this one is fake as well, the seller claims they will refund the content creators their $375k.
