The mobile game Pokemon Masters recently rebranded to Pokemon Masters EX and a new hashtag for the game started trending on Twitter for all the wrong reasons thanks to a lack of capitalization.

Users across the social media platform were stunned on September 1 when #Pokemonmastersex was trending.

To those unfamiliar with the mobile game or its rebrand, thanks to a lack of spaces and capitals, it reads like “Pokemon Master Sex.”

Of course, the real hashtag was for the game and not some weird parody found in the dark corners of the interwebs. Regardless, fans everywhere started freaking out.

Many users used the humorous hashtag to post memes or reference elements in Pokemon more in line with its improper version than the correct one.

The first proper use of the PokemonMastersEX hashtag seems to have begun with the Pokemon Masters account itself.

On August 25, the account announced that a new version was available for download and that the application had changed names from Pokemon Masters to Pokemon Masters EX.

Pokemon Masters itself has had a rough start. While the game first launched in August of 2019, it didn’t meet the expectations of the player base, resulting in its producers issuing an apology in an official blog post a couple months later.

Now, with the game being one year old, the title has changed names, perhaps in an attempt to put its rocky history behind it. What makes this whole debacle quite interesting, however, is that this whole hashtag situation may end up helping the game out.

Considering the fact the tag started trending, it’s likely that more people than ever are aware of the game’s existence once they understand what it actually means. It could be a blessing in disguise for the title and earn it a ton of free publicity.

However, some of these on-stream occurrences are downright strange, and many streamers have received the odd occasional gift from their viewers, including that time when Pokimane received a body pillow with a photo of herself on it.

While streamers having a public P.O. Box to receive gifts from fans is not uncommon, very often the things they receive are; and Twitch streamer TheStockGuy became the subject of a seriously weird present of sorts.

Twitch: Pokimane
Twitch star “Pokimane” has received a slew of strange gifts from fans – one of which was a body pillow with her own face on it.

During an October 6 broadcast, TheStockGuy — who has gained notoriety on the platform for educating his viewers about finances and the stock market — revealed he’d been sent 126 lbs of Ocean Spray brand cranberry sauce.

“What is wrong with you people?” the streamer asked, seeming genuinely baffled by the situation. “Somebody sent me 126 lbs of cranberry sauce! What — where am I supposed to put this? Isn’t there some charity or something this money could go to?”

Although the he appeared to be utterly flummoxed by the viewers’ decision, he decided to make the best of the unexpected prank, stating that he would donate the sauce to his local food bank for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

“I mean — you know what? Joke’s on you!” he continued. “I’m giving this to the local food shelter for thanksgiving, so they don’t have to purchase cranberry sauce! That’s right — we’re making something good out of this!”

It seems that TheStockGuy’s viewers found the scenario to be completely hilarious — and while it certainly is worth a hearty chuckle, it’s good to know that the broadcaster is putting his viewer’s practical joke to good use, in the end.
