Pokemon Gen 8 has some adorable species included in its Pokedex, without a doubt, and Snom is very much in that bracket. While you might expect to see it wandering Route 10 or in the Lake of Outrage, nothing quite tops seeing it appear in a hot cup of cocoa. 

The Ice/Bug-type Pokemon was added in the latest games for Nintendo Switch, Sword and Shield. Catching one is fairly easy, most trainers would say that, though carving one out of marshmallow is a task in itself.

It looks to be a mission not many have set out to completing, either, as a video of a handmade Snom has went viral on Reddit.

Bringing together this year’s market spike in hot chocolate bombs and one of the cutest entrants to the Pokedex, an internet sensation was born on December 30.

Pokemon players pour love over Snom hot chocolate bomb

Seen below, a short video was posted to the Pokemon Sword and Shield subreddit.

User miscellaneousmao, its creator, could be seen first stuffing a sugar laced PokeBall into her mug and pouring hot water over it soon after. Before you know it, the outside shell of the ball disappears to create the usual dark brown color of the drink, leaving behind a floating monster!

The post has received over 5,000 upvotes at the time of writing and is showing no signs of slowing down any time soon.

A few people in the comments were actually convinced that this was a product bought right off the shelf, asking where they could buy one. Little did they know that it was actually hand-crafted by the Reddit poster themselves.

Others urged them to start selling! “It really does look great, is there a way to sell these? without legal issues getting in the way?”

Though, this fan is keeping her tricks to herself it would seem. The creator replied: ” I’m not sure, but I wouldn’t sell anyways, I prefer just to make things for fun in my free time.’

Some described the hot chocolate bomb as amazing, others said legendary, and we’d add our own adjective to the list as well – superb.

NICKMERCS creates powerful FFAR Warzone loadout after Cold War nerfs

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.
