The Pokemon community was shook after viewers spotted a depressing easter egg in the Sword & Shield spin-off anime Twilight Wings. The tragic discovery put a horrifying new spin on the July 2 episode.

Pokemon players were introduced to the Galar region for the very first time in the eighth generation title Sword & Shield. To celebrate the series’ latest era, an anime spin-off series titled Twilight Wings was produced for YouTube.

However during its latest episode, things quickly took a dark turn after viewers made a discovery that is seen to be completely tragic. The spooky easter egg will make you reach for your Pikachu plush and hug it tight.

Tragic easter egg in Pokemon Twilight Wings

The Sword & Shield spin-off series first debuted on YouTube in January. Every month, fans get a new look at the Galar region in a mini animated short. The sixth episode, Moonlight, heavily featured Shield-exclusive Gym Leader Allister.

Much of the plot revolves around Tommy, who wants to apologize to his friend John who is stuck in the hospital. After a run-in with the Ghost-type Trainer, the two fly back to the hospital so that he can make up with his friend.

Keen-eyed fan ‘hebibebi’ spotted a disturbing easter egg in the episode which they shared on Twitter. The user noticed the Gen V character Lampent was hovering around the hospital. According to the monster’s fifth generation Pokedex entry, it “hangs around hospitals waiting for people to pass on.”

Many viewers were floored by the discovery, and it quickly went viral with over 21.6k likes at the time of writing. While the Pokemon’s presence is enough to give anyone chills, it should be stated that it’s probably not there for John, but other patients in the medical institution. Still, pretty creepy stuff.

Despite only releasing in November 2019, Sword & Shield is already on track to becoming the third best-selling release in the entire franchise. The Gen VIII title’s sales are proof that players around the world still can’t get enough of the Nintendo series.

Fans of the game have a lot to look forward to this year, as its second major DLC, The Crown Tundra, drops sometime in the Fall.

Those also looking to learn more about the Galar region can catch episodes of Twilight Wings for free on the Official Pokemon YouTube channel.

The Pokemon Trading Card Game hobby was rocked in November when a man rediscovered his mind-blowing complete collection of the rare 1999 Base Set. The fan has stacks of every character, including hundreds of Charizards.

Despite releasing decades ago, the Pokemon TCG has seen a major explosion in value in 2020. Cards once traded on playgrounds and stuffed into 90s children’s binders are now selling for as much as a sports car. 

A man went viral after discovering their collection may be one of the most complete sets to ever exist. The fan’s unfathomable amount of rare collectibles could actually have an impact on the future of the hobby’s prices.

Pokemon fan discovers TCG collection is worth millions

Pokemon cards have never been more popular this year as the collectible hobby has now even taken over platforms such as YouTube and Twitch. Celebrities such as former rapper Logic are dropping hundreds of thousands of dollars to scoop up the rare Nintendo items. 

On November 22, a video went viral online of a man showing off his mind-blowing collection that has many collectors turning their heads. “Literally got all of my Pokemons stuff out of the loft from my recent move,” YouTuber PokeMans Alex explained before showing off his astonishing collection.

Holding up a stack of rare holographic cards from the 1999 base set, the fan exclaimed, “As you can see they are mint, and have not been touched for so long.” The TCG collector then revealed his unprecedented number of Charizards. “I don’t know if you are ready for this,” he warned, before holding up a stack of 111 cards of the rare starter ‘mon.

To put that into perspective, in October a PSA graded 10 of the same item is now selling for $30k alone. The content creator emptied over seven binders on his table to reveal a 1999 base set that was not only complete, but also had stacks of over 50 of the same card for every single character.“I’m ready to put all of these away back in the safe where they are now gonna stay,” he said.

Veteran Pokemon card YouTuber PokeRev reacted to the video on November 26 and exclaimed, “Did you open all these packs as a kid? It’s just an insane amount of holo cards. When we were kids, just to get a couple holos from the base set was really good. But to have thousands is insane!”

Other famous collectors such as British rapper Randolph commented, “Unreal mate.” Gaming YouTuber Ali A wrote, “How did you originally collect SO many cards!? Are you looking to sell any of them?”

At the time of writing, it’s unclear just how much the YouTuber’s incredible Pokemon haul is worth. None of the collectibles have actually been looked at by professional grading companies PSA or Beckett. And the majority of its value revolves around its condition and score.

A set of this magnitude is unprecedented and could have a severe impact on what TCG cards are worth in the future. A big factor in an item’s selling price hinges on it having a low population. PokeMans Alex’s collection could soon flood the market should he decide to get things graded.
