The Pokemon Sword & Shield community was left terrified after discovering Musharna’s eighth generation sleep animation. The Black & White ‘mon’s creepy appearance is nightmare fuel.

First introduced in Gen V’s Black & White in 2010, Musharna has become a fan-favorite for both its adorable design and incredibly powerful Psychic-type moves.

Players of Game Freak’s 2019 Sword & Shield were left with the chills when they discovered its eighth generation sleep animation is actually pretty terrifying – and we definitely agree!

At first glance, Musharna looks adorable as the little pink ‘mon is curled up into a deep slumber. However despite its existence since 2010, some players have never truly seen the character’s sleep animation until Sword & Shield.

User ‘Beagles113’ kicked off a discussion on the r/PokemonSwordAndShield subreddit after sharing a screenshot of Musharna asleep while camping. The Gen 8 player exclaimed, “This is how Musharna sleeps and it’s terrifying.”

The image shows the Pokemon sitting upright with both eyes wide open. Its creepy stare actually makes sense as the character’s natural state is to always be asleep. So its sleep animation in the game is it being awake instead – we know, it’s confusing!

Some were not aware of its awake sleep animation, and were just as terrified as the topic creator. One user wrote, “Musharna with open eyes is 100% cursed.” Another ominously exclaimed, “He sees you when he’s sleeping. he know when you’re awake.”

Despite its cute design, the Black & White ‘mon is actually pretty disturbing. According to its lore, it eats the dreams of both human and Pokemon. Those that disturb it can turn the mist coming out its head into real objects, making its dreams a reality.

Musharna’s death stare is nothing new. As said above, the ‘mon released back in 2010. The anime has also depicted it in its ‘aware’ state. However some fans playing Sword & Shield are only now seeing it for the first time in HD and find it really creepy.

The forever-skillful Jay-Jay Okocha has finally gotten his Prime ICON card in FIFA 21, and you can pick him up for your Ultimate Team ⁠— if you’re willing to part way with your coins. Here’s what you need to do.

Jay-Jay Okocha really pumped flavor into football. His stylish moves made the likes of Ronaldinho household names, and the Nigerian experienced plenty of success for himself with PSG, Eintracht Frankfurt, and Bolton.

Now, he can bring success to your FIFA 21 Ultimate Team. The 90-rated Prime ICON is available through the game’s latest set of ICON SBCs, although you’ll have to be willing to part ways with a fair bit of cash for him.

Okocha’s Prime ICON card puts the legendary Nigerian into the 90s and primed for a Pace style to bump him up further theoretically.

With 87 Pace ⁠— one down from his base 85 ICON ⁠— he might not be as fast, but he makes up for it across the board with better Passing (+5), Shooting (+3), and Dribbling (+2). Throw on Hunter, and you can get up to 96 Pace and 90 Shooting. It’s a lethal card to have in CAM, especially when you take 5* Skills and 4* Weak Foot into account.

Jay-Jay Okocha ICON SBC price & requirements

Jay-Jay Okocha is the cheapest of the three new ICON SBCs, coming in at around 500,000 to 750,000 coins. If you’ve got spare cards lying around ⁠— especially high-rated untradeables ⁠— it might be worth the investment.
