Streamer devastated after accidentally running away from shiny Pokemon

Twitch streamer Fizziberry thought she was running away from an ordinary Seedot in Pokemon Sword and Shield, but couldn’t believe what she’d just walked away from after realizing it was actually a rare shiny variant. 

Outside of completing the game and taking down gym leaders, Pokemon has one very simple goal – catch ‘em all. Some Pokemon, though, are harder to find than others and if you really want to set your collection apart, a way of doing that is collecting shinies.

Running into a shiny Pokemon, though, requires some luck as the odds of doing so are rather slim and you do need to be paying attention. So, it’s quite a spectacular fail when you choose to run away from one without even battling it.

During her December 5 stream, Fizziberry had been searching around for some Pokemon when she was greeted with a battle from a Seedot. The wild Pokemon had the all-important shiny animation pop up, but the streamer must not have realized and decided to ditch anyway. 

It took a minute for her to notice what had happened, once her chat alerted her to it being a shiny. She gasped: “Was that a shiny?” The streamer immediately threw her Nintendo Switch controller in front of her mouth as she watched her chat fill up with shock.

After a few moments of keeping the controller pinned against her mouth, Fizziberry finally broke her silence. 

“I didn’t know it was a shiny,” she said. “I didn’t know it was a shiny, they should have made that very clear that was a shiny!”

Her viewers immediately tried to point out the differences between regular poke’s and shiny ones, but the streamer still couldn’t believe what had happened. “I don’t know, I didn’t really think about it,” she added.

Despite that, the streamer didn’t rage quit or give up. Instead, she decided to dive back into playing the game and headed into a Dynamax fight alongside some fellow trainers. 

However, she still couldn’t get over what had happened. “I made a mistake, I made a mistake,” the streamer said while looking off-camera. “That was the first time I’ve ever run into a shiny. Wait, I’m really sad. That was the first shiny I ever saw and I ran away from it.”

Ultimately, the streamer appeared to get over her mishap and carried on streaming for a few more hours.

Maybe this moment will serve as a warning to always keep your eyes on the screen as you never know when your luck is going to come in and you’ll find a shiny Pokemon. With the odds stacked against trainers looking to find one, running away is certainly a huge mistake. 


LS reveals how xQc reached out to him during T1 fans backlash

Nick ‘LS’ De Cesare has revealed that Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel reached out to him during the T1 backlash offering his support and advice.

T1’s accidental leak that revealed LS was set to be the organization’s new League of Legends coach resulted in a wave of backlash against both parties.

Fans of the organization opted to send unjustifiable racial and homophobic abuse towards LS, as well as doxxing his grandmother and sending packages to her address. T1, from an outside perspective, did not handle the situation appropriately and seemingly offered little support to LS during this period.

This resulted in LS disabling his Twitter and going completely dark for a short period of time. This was no doubt due to the amount of hate and criticism he was receiving from T1 fans. One person who reached to support him was huge Twitch personality xQc.

xQc has over four million followers on Twitch.

LS revealed on stream that the Twitch personality reached out to him in support. “Before I disabled my Twitter and went dark on everything, xQc was one of the very few people who reached out to me,” he said.

It was obvious LS was surprised he had reached out to him due to the streamer’s popularity: “Despite the fact that I’m like an insect compared to him, in terms of like brand and size and everything, it’s very nice.”

LS repeated multiple times that xQc is a “real one”, showing his appreciation for his support and care.

It’s clear that xQc reaching out to LS really meant a lot to him and helped him get through the difficult patch. Sometimes, just reaching out to somebody going through a hard time can make a world of difference.

Now, it’s just great to see LS back on track with the League of Legends content and streaming again.
