Félix ‘xQc‘ Lengyel was given the fright of his life after a Galarian Meowth bumped into him in Pokemon’s new Galar Region. 

Game Freak’s Pokemon Sword and Shield games finally released on November 15, meaning players from the franchise’s online community could flock to a brand new part of the world and explore the latest additions to the Pokedex.

Since the game launched, trainers have been spending their time testing out the boatload of new features – including Gigantamaxing abilities for some species, discovering that Galarian Farfetch’d evolves in a very different way, and now xQc has found out that some of the fan-favorites have been given a revamp.

It’s fair to say that he was given a bit of a shock, too.

Pokemon GO / Pokemon Sword and ShieldMeowth has been given a new look in the Galar Region.

The popular Canadian streamer, who is a huge fan of the video game series, decided to give one of the new titles a try during his broadcast on November 15.

After sprinting around near some long grass, it was only a matter of time before a Pokemon was going to pounce on the trainer. He said: “Oh my God, shiny Meowth?” As the battle began, he and his Rookidee – which he has renamed Summit1gram – waited to see the wild species appear. “What the f*ck is this? I’m out dude.”

Once he caught a glimpse of it, he soon ran away, stunned that it actually wasn’t the shiny version he expected.

There are a number of new Galarian forms available for players to find in the new games, too, with several Pokemon from previous generations having adapted to new life in the Galar Region. Mr. Mime, Weezing, Zigzagoon, Yamask, and many others are among the list of revamped characters in the new titles.

Some of these are exclusive to just one game, though, with Galarian Ponyta – for example – only available on Pokemon Shield. Check out our full list of differences between Pokemon Sword and Shield for more information.


Tyler1 amazes Smash Ultimate pros after battling MkLeo on Twitch

Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp faced off against the number one Smash Ultimate player, Leonardo ‘MkLeo’ López Pérez, in what was meant to be a fun T1 crossover. Instead, the League challenger got to work, trash talking and smashing about the best in the world.

Tyler1 doesn’t do anything by halves. He’s loud, and has the personality to match. He revs up his Twitch stream to hundreds of thousands of adoring fans daily, who are there not for the gameplay, but for the Tyler1 ride.

Those who caught the streamer’s November 27 cast were certainly in for a ride. The League of Legends star collided with Smash Ultimate’s biggest name, MkLeo.

It makes sense a crossover between the two was inevitable ⁠— with both being part of prestigious organization T1 ⁠— but the action exceeded everyone’s expectations. Of course, Tyler1 got trounced by MkLeo. However, that doesn’t mean he wasn’t able to get a stock or two, and the League streamer let the Smash pro know about it.

“Leo, I don’t think you’re that good dude. How bad are Smash players if I almost f**king beat you,” Tyler1 said, while struggling to get more than half a stock on average every game.

MkLeo didn’t take it lying down though. “You’re so bad that you’re really good at the same time,” he hit back with.

Tyler1 kept frying the big fish though. Next on his stop of trash talk was Leffen. “Leffen is a scrawny p*ssy a** b*tch. Kid sucks at f**king Smash. Rages at a children’s game, f**king loser,” he said, which had MkLeo in stitches. He had enough slaptalk for Samsora and other pros too.

Fans were also treated to some iconic Tyler1 reactions, and there was none bigger than the streamer’s bewilderment at Arsene, Joker’s Persona. “What the hell is that? Did you just enter a cheat code, bud? Are you cheating?”

After it was all said and done though, the crossover did what it intended to do. It united the League of Legends and Smash communities, and entertained everyone in the crossover that no one really wanted, but they definitely enjoyed.

“Playing and chilling with [Tyler1] really made me realize what it is to be a streamer and a gamer. Loved his personality and him as a person, looking forward to more collaborations like these,” MkLeo said on Twitter.

“T1 playing smash with Leo was actually so godlike. Makes me actually want to play league more and see if I can get to further than Masters,” Samsora also added on Twitter.

Tyler1 kept his side of the story nice and quaint though: “It was pretty fun.”
