Spectacular Pokemon Emerald shiny fail leaves Erobb speechless

Twitch streamer Erobb was stunned after he realized he had accidentally defeated a shiny Pokemon while playing Emerald. The personality failed to recognize the extremely rare encounter. 

Shiny Pokemon were first introduced in Generation II, and gave trainers a chance at catching an extremely rare alternate colored version of their favorite monsters.


However during his April 2 broadcast, Twitch personality Erobb failed to recognize he’d encountered one after blasting his way through the 2004 Gameboy Advance title.

The Gameboy Advance title launched in 2005 in the West.

The streamer decided to play the beloved Nintendo title for his viewers. However, he quickly opted to use a gameplay speed booster on an emulator to make things move quicker.


As he zipped back and forth across the map, he said aloud, “This is not cheating, I don’t care what anybody says I’m doing this!” He then turned towards his chat and replied, “It is still playing the game, dude. It just lets me get to the good parts faster!”

However, after continuing to speed through several Pokemon battles, he then encountered a shiny green Taillow. Not realizing what he had found, he proceeded to attack and it knock it out before moving on to the next one.


His chat then exploded with viewers telling him what he had just done. A couple seconds later they caught his attention and he replied “That was a shiny? Wait, was that rare?”

Someone in his audience then informed him just how rare it was. He then screamed “1 in 8 thousand chance!? I thought it was just evolved!”

The streamer then let the whole thing sink in before he said “Oh my God!” His viewers exploded into laughter as he missed out on an incredibly lucky encounter.


Based on his reaction, it’s hard to tell if Erobb’s sped up gameplay played a role or not. Although it appears he simply just didn’t know that the Pokemon was a shiny.


The Twitch streamer isn’t the first one to fail spectacularly in this regard. Over the years trainers have made similar mistakes  – although having the gameplay sped up surely couldn’t have helped.

It’s no secret that TikTok star Charli D’Amelio has a dedicated fanbase, but some supporters began accusing another TikToker of copying her hairstyle — and the Queen was not happy about these allegations.

Charli D’Amelio is the most-followed content creator on TikTok, having reached a whopping 90 million followers since rising to the top of the platform in March.


Boasting her own drink at Dunkin’ Donuts, her own makeup collection with Morphe and her own line of Hollister hoodies, the youngest D’Amelio sister has amassed quite the empire in a short time — as well as a seriously intense fanbase.

While hopping on popular trends is quite the norm these days, some viewers have accused innocent TikTokers of copying Charli, even alleging that older sister Dixie had “copied” her nose surgery.

This behavior hasn’t stopped, it seems, as other fans claimed that TikToker Madi Monroe had copied Charli’s hairstyle after dying her blonde hair with streaks of rose gold (or pink, depending on how you look at it).

Charli dyed her own black hair a shade of purple underneath, and while it could be true that other influencers have taken inspiration from her new ‘do, the TikTok Queen wasn’t too pleased with those piling on Monroe for her fashion choices.


In fact, Charli claimed that other names like Avani Gregg and Hayley had kickstarted the trend by dying their hair before she’d even made the decision to go purple, as told in a pointed response to the online outrage.

Charli D'Amelio decries users accusing Madi Monroe of copying her hairstyle.

“Hayley and Avani dyed their hair like this before me,” she explained in a TikTok comment. “I did not start this trend. Also, who cares? Madi looks amazing as per usual and she is rocking the pink hair.”

Madi followed up Charli’s comment with a statement of her own, showing tons of love to the purple-haired TikTok guru.

“Why is this even tea?” she said of the issue. “Hell yeah, Char rocks this hairstyle. That comment wasn’t supposed to be rude but NGL I’D LOVE TO LOOK EXACTLY LIKE CHARLI SHE’S THE BADDEST!”

It looks like there’s no bad blood between these two influencers, who have had enough of the made-up drama surrounding their hairstyle choices.
