Streamer flexes incredible Pokemon knowledge on Twitch Jeopardy show

Twitch streamer ‘ConnorEatsPants’ has flexed his immense Pokemon knowledge during an intense game of Twitch Jeopardy, nailing five correct answers from the most obscure questions Ludwig ‘Ludwig’ Ahgren could think of.

Jeopardy is one of America’s most popular game shows of all time. Taking a panel of questions, each with money attached to them, players must buzz in with their answers to put the money into their account. However, one wrong answer can see you lose it all.

It’s easy to understand, and easy to replicate, and that’s why some Twitch streamers have taken to integrating the game show into their regular content. All’s more entertaining with a bit of money on the line, and big personalities giving awkward answers to straight-forward questions.

PokemonHow many of these Pokemon silhouettes could you guess?

However, for ConnorEatsPants in this $1,000 Jeopardy wager match on Ludwig’s stream, it was like he had the answer sheet in front of him for the Pokemon section. 

After getting control of the board, ConnorEatsPants went down the “Who’s That Pokemon?” question line to get as much cash as he could. First up on the list was Nosepass, with the iron golem’s iconic nose giving a dead giveaway to the Pokemon fanatic. 

However, the answers didn’t stop there, with him buzzing in correctly for Exploud, Vigoroth, and Dragonite — with the last answer giving Connor and JSCHLATT back the lead in the game.

With only the $1,000 Pokemon question left on the board, Ludwig changed things up, sharing a Pokemon squeal that the players had to match up. While the question got passed in, Connor took a stab in the dark after time was up and nailed the correct answer of Taillow.

The rest of the stream was in awe of Connor’s memory when it came to Pokemon, and it’s obvious that the popular game was a big part of his childhood.

“Oh my god, you’ve got like something up in that noggin dude,” said SwaggerSouls in complete disbelief. Ludwig himself professed that “if I need know Pokemon, I go to Connor,” which is rightfully so after that string of answers.

PokemonCould you guess the squeal of a Taillow with just a short sound bite like Connoreatspants?

Pokemon makes perfect sense for a Jeopardy section, with plenty of easy ways to get questions on the board. Telling the difference between outlines can be difficult, especially when there’s more than 700 Pokemon in the game’s universe. 

While it didn’t help them the duo win the game of Jeopardy, Connoreatspants has rightfully earned the title of Pokemon Master after this monumental effort, and showing that all those hours growing up haven’t gone to waste.

Dream responds to #dreamwaswrong trending on Twitter

YouTuber and Minecraft content creator Dream has finally responded to the #dreamwaswrong trend on Twitter, using his DreamWasTaken account to assert he disavows the behavior displayed by some of his fans.

Dream and his cohorts, including known creators like Tommyinnit and GeorgeNotFound, are incredibly popular on YouTube and beyond thanks to an infinitum of Dream Team videos and the Dream SMP server.

While that level of fame means possibility for mainstream collaboration with the likes of superstar TikTok influencer Addison Rae, it also comes with downsides. Notably, #dreamwaswrong began trending on Twitter as fans blamed Dream for encouraging his stans, some of whom are prone to producing inappropriate fan art involving minors.

As critics explain, Dream’s love for his fans supposedly equates to egging on the ways they express their fandom — thereby supporting the production of “CP.” In response, he explained: “I’ve said this before but don’t ship creators that are uncomfortable with it, and especially not minors. It’s disgusting to draw NSFW stuff about minors or anyone that hasn’t explicitly said it’s fine.”

After addressing the drama directly, by reaffirming that “NSFW stuff about minors” is distasteful, Dream continued on to explain why it’s unfair to misgeneralize his role in the production of such content.

In a follow-up tweet aimed at defending his support for his fans, the Minecraft YouTuber said, “With 16 million subscribers that’s 1 out of every 480 people IN THE WORLD that are subscribed. There’s bound to be thousands of terrible people, but there’s also bound to be millions of great ones. If you’re looking for hate or disgusting stuff, you’ll find it. Stop looking.”

As he shows, boasting 16 million subscribers on YouTube means that “out of every 480 people in the world,” at least one is a fan of Dream’s content. That is an enormous quantity of supporters, and it should not be surprising that there are “thousands of terrible people” within the millions of fans.

This sentiment appears to be echoed by his fans — as many have resurfaced earlier videos showing that the content creator has never specifically encouraged the creation of relationship fanfiction or “CP.”

It remains unclear how satisfied people are with Dream’s response, but the overall sentiment appears to be positive. While it feels unreasonable to expect a creator to be wholly responsible for the actions of their audience, this incident does provide a cautionary tale.

Considering this “disgusting” group of Dream’s stans, the prevailing community critique remains: If you are an influencer, you have some obligation to directly and quickly curtail negative behavior by those you influence.
