Pokemon Space Sunrise Event start time

The Pokemon Company Japan asked fans to tune in back in November, stating, “Pokemon will appear on the “First Sunrise of the Universe” LIVE program delivered from the International Space Station (ISS)! Please look forward to the collaboration with Pokemon set in space!”

Festivities kicked off close to midnight Japan time, which is 6:45AM PST / 9:45AM EST / 2:45 pm BST. Meaning North American fans needed to get up fairly early to tune in to the celebration. In a December 26 tweet, TPC North America account teased, “Some Pokémon are planning to make an appearance! You’ll have to tune in to find out who…”

How to watch

You can check out the special stream on Kibo’s official YouTube channel – embedded below for your convenience.

According to a “leak” that surfaced online on December 27, The Pokemon Company was supposedly gearing up to announce a Diamond & Pearl remake during the livestream. Unfortunately, this didn’t happen.

Something was revealed, though – a special Kibo’s Pikachu for Sword & Shield players is available via the Mystery Gift feature until January 15.

What better way to celebrate the end of 2020 and the beginning of the New Year with your favorite ‘mon in outer space? That’s pretty epic in its own right.

Twitch star Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff has got an interesting FFAR loadout for Call of Duty Warzone following the recent nerfs to the DMR and other weapons. 

The meta in Warzone is constantly evolving as Call of Duty fans try and get a leg up on their opposition in any way shape or form. 

Since the launch of Black Ops Cold War, it’s been all about the DMR, Diamatti’s, and MAC-10, but recent nerfs have got players searching for different choices. Some have gone back to the Modern Warfare weapons – the M4, AMAX, and Kilo-141, for example – while others have tried to find answers in Cold War.

The FFAR, which resembles the FAMAS from years past, has been the answer for some. It’s even got NICKMERCS trying it out and dropping a pretty nice loadout.

The FFAR has become of the best guns in Warzone.

The FaZe Clan member unveiled the loadout he’s been using in his January 16 video, noting that, even though its an assault rifle, it might make some of the SMGs obsolete. 

“However, I do think this FFAR could replace a lot of the SMGs,” Nick said. “I think the overall kit is a pretty good kit, and if you want to have some fun, this is a great class to do that.”

The accuracy does take a slight knock in Nick’s setup, however, the FFAR does get a nice little boost to both the range and mobility. It’s not exactly going to be a sniper or a KAR, but for what it is, it’s certainly nice and up there with some of the best weapons around right now. 

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 21.2” Ranger
  • Underbarrel: Bruiser Grip
  • Ammo: Salvo 50 round fast mag
  • Stock: Raider Stock

The YouTuber does note, though, that it’s probably not going to be a class you see streamers running in tournaments. But, for a bit of fun and racking up kills, it’s certainly a nice change of pace. 

Plus, when the time comes and Raven rolls out a few more nerfs, everyone will be searching for the next best thing, and the FFAR should be up there. So, you may as well get used to it, if you’re not already.
