Things got heated between xQcOW and a troll donor during a recent Twitch stream, leading to a reaction you would least expect to see in the world of Pokémon.

The Canadian streamer and Overwatch pro xQc was enjoying playing the big new Pokémon: Let’s GO, Pikachu! game, but was interrupted by some trolling coming from his donations.

One user, timthehuman965, donated five dollars to the streamer’s channel, commenting: “xQc to Adept every night: ‘okay you hang up this time’ ‘no you hang up’ ‘hehe no you hang up’ ‘no you hang up’ ‘hehe no you hang up…’”

We’re sure you get the picture. If not, you can always see how it played out below:

As Félix Lengyel – xQc’s real name – used Pikachu to cut his way past a tree in the game, he decided to bite back as the comment was still playing.

Lengyel said: “This is your Dad and your Mom before you were born: ‘Pull out!’ ‘No I’m not’ ‘Pull out now!’ ‘Too late.’”

His reaction to the donation left his girlfriend, who goes by the name of AdeptTheBest on Twitch, completely shocked. She immediately facepalmed after his outburst and asked: “Why would you say that?”

Pokémon: Let’s GO, Pikachu! Nintendo’s fastest-selling Switch game to-date.

Like many other Pokémon fans, xQc has been playing Pokémon: Let’s GO, Pikachu! since it was released on November 16 alongside Pokémon: Let’s GO, Eevee!

The two titles have recorded sales amounting to $3 million after launch, making them the fastest-selling Switch games since the console came onto the scene in March.

To celebrate the change of season, Niantic is hosting an autumn-themed Pokemon Go event. A new Gen 5 Pokemon will be introduced as well as other bonuses.

The 2020 Pokemon Go autumn event starts on Friday, October 9, 8 am PDT and finishes on Monday, October 12, 1 pm PDT. That’s an 11 am EDT start for those on the east coast of the US and 4 pm BST for those residing in the UK.

To the surprise of nobody, the event will feature various fall-themed Pokemon. These ‘mons can be found in the wild and in eggs when you hatch them.

Double effective Berries

Elsewhere, autumn is the time harvest and that seemingly applies to Pokemon Go, too. As a result, Berries can be found more often when spinning PokeStops. There will also be berry-themed Field and Timed Research.

During the event, all Berries will be twice as effective when giving them to your Buddy Pokemon as treats. Perhaps more excitingly, however, is that Pinap Berries will also become doubly as effective.

This means that instead of just double Candy when capturing a Pokemon, you’ll actually get four times the amount! Other Berries such as the Razz variety won’t be doubly as effective, though.

Autumn-themed Pokemon

Meanwhile, the following Pokemon will be appearing more frequently in the wild:

  • Oddish
  • Vulpix
  • Bayleef
  • Hoothoot
  • Sudowoodo
  • Yanma
  • Pineco
  • Zigzagoon
  • Seedot
  • Shroomish
  • Plant Cloak Burmy
  • Foongus

Others will be appearing in 5km eggs but those Pokemon weren’t released in the Pokemon Go blog post.

Additionally, Shiny Vulpix will be spawning more often. The ever-popular Fox Pokemon has already had its Shiny form released previously but few trainers will want to miss out on the chance to get another or even their first!

Deerling changes color depending on what seasonal form it is…

Deerling

As is very apt for the change of season, Deerling will be introduced to the world of Pokemon Go for the first time. The Season Pokemon has four forms – Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter – so expect to come across its autumn variant.

It evolves into Sawsbuck, which has the same four forms, also. Deerling needs 50 Candy to evolve, so if you want to get Sawsbuck during the event you’ll need to catch as many Deerling as possible. When using a Pinap Berry though, you’ll only need to catch five of them!

There’s plenty to look forward to in Pokemon Go during October. Charmander is coming to a Community Day a second time with the exclusive move Dragon Breath and there is even a surprise Raid Boss to look forward to at the end of the month.
