A Pokemon player’s pet fish went viral after incredibly managing to beat Gen III’s Ruby & Sapphire during a livestream – yes, you read that right.

The lovable Siamese fighting fish went viral in June after its fish tank was mapped to be able to control Pokemon Ruby & Sapphire. Viewers tuned in live to watch the aquatic animal defeat two Gym Leaders.

Over four months later, the Japanese fan’s pet had one final showdown with Hoenn Champion Steven Stone. After an epic battle, the adorable creature has emerged victorious.

The Pokemon fan created a way for their fish to play the RPGs.

Pokemon YouTuber Mutekimaru Channel creatively rigged up the fish tank so that when one of its bettas swam into one of the quadrants, it would move the character in-game and select an action.

On November 6, the dedicated fan’s experiment came to a triumphant end when their pet fish was able to secure the victory against the Gen III’s final Trainer battle.

Twitter user Skeletondoggy tweeted about the livestream as it was happening. “THE FISH PLAYING THROUGH RUBY JUST GOT TO STEVEN AND IS BEATING THE SH*T OUT OF HIM,” he exclaimed. According to the viewer, the pet fish used Water-type ‘mon Walrein’s Iceball move to win.

Pokemon fans were floored by the pet’s ability to beat the third-generation RPG. Skeleton tweeted again about the stream in shock, and exclaimed, “I GENUINELY CANNOT F**KING BELIEVE THIS.”

The fish managed to beat the game after over 3,000 hours.

Mutekimaru used multiple pet fishes to beat the game, and would swap out animals to give them rest. It took the bettas multiple attempts to bring down the champion, before eventually emerging victorious. In a November 6 tweet, the Japanese player revealed it took over 3,185 hours for the aquatic animals to reach the final battle.

Incredibly, the pet fish have also broken other records involving Ruby & Sapphire, such as being the first to discover a new glitch in Gen III RPG in over 18 years.

While the story certainly seems ridiculous, it really just goes to show how deep players’ love goes for the popular Game Freak franchise.


Charli D’Amelio under fire for complaining about 95 million followers

TikTok queen Charli D’Amelio is known for having the most followers out of any other creator on the viral video app — but it seems that reaching less than 100 million in a year isn’t quite cutting it for the social media star.

2020 has certainly been a wildly successful year for miss D’Amelio; she surpassed longtime TikTok queen Loren Gray in March, becoming the platform’s most popular content creator in the process.

However, her winstreak wasn’t over, by far: Charli skyrocketed from 41 million followers to 99 million by November, marking an unprecedented rise to fame for just about any influencer.

Despite being on the precipice of a TikTok record, it seems that Charli was hoping to score the coveted 100 million follower mark within a year of hitting one million. However, it seems that time has passed on, leaving her craving for more time.

A post shared by charli d’amelio (@charlidamelio)

She spoke about the situation during a YouTube video with makeup artist James Charles on November 16, where she appeared to jokingly complain about not reaching the coveted goal.

“I wish I had more time!” she exclaimed. “Imagine if I hit 100 mil a year after hitting a mil.”

“Was the 95 [million] not enough for you?” Charles joked.

“I was just saying like, even numbers,” Charli laughed, sticking out her tongue in the camera.

Dixie D’Amelio attempted to quickly end the video as if on cue, with Charli following suit, marking for a humorous end to a discussion that not many viewers found all too funny.

“It’s so stuck up to act like 95 million isn’t enough,” one commenter wrote of the conversation. “She should be happy, she has her whole life set for her.”

“She deserves to be humbled, I can’t stand her,” another chimed in.

“It’s very obviously a joke on James’s part, but still, she’s more famous at 16-17 than most people will ever be in their lifetimes,” another added. “And being a famous teen can inflate your ego something fierce.”

Charles has since spoken out about the situation and clarified that his question was, indeed, just a joke — but in spite of the obvious humor, Charli’s privileged position and follower comments are leaving more than a few critics a bit burnt.
