By wanting to imitate a streamer, a YouTuber cheated on the Diamond and Pearl versions of Pokémon, released on Nintendo Switch on November 19, and drew the wrath of the community.
1/16 777 216
We told you about it a few days ago. A streamer by the name of MitchOG had the chance of a lifetime, as he managed to come face to face with not one, but two chromatic Pokémon simultaneously on Diamond and Pearl versions of Pokémon. Such a fact which has only one chance in 16,777,216 to occur. A record.
While looking to capture a Chromatic Turtlefish, he managed to stumble upon it, as well as a Chromatic Etourmi. The latter finally returned to the wild, to the chagrin of many other players.
Too good to be true
No doubt wanting to surf the success of MitchOG, a Twitch streamer by the name of KyleAye posted a video, now deleted, in which he also encountered two chromatic Pokémon at the same time: the Starter Ouisticram and a Etourmi. Arriving shortly after MitchOG’s, KyleAye’s YouTube video surprised several internet users who questioned its veracity.
Faced with these comments, and perhaps for ethical reasons, the Twitch and YouTube streamer returned to the case, by posting a comment on his Discord where he explains that it was actually a fake. Loaded with apologies, KyleAye announces thathe used a mod on his Switch to make 2 Shiny encounters much more frequent. He also claimed that he had no malicious intent.
If KyleAye deleted the tweets and the YouTube video, he nevertheless relayed his press release with a tweet, which caused a reaction. If some salute his gesture, some do not fail to point out to him his dishonesty. Here are some examples.
People got upset for the same reason people get upset at cheated speedruns. The shiny hunting community depends on honesty and someone lying gives everyone else a bad name. People who don’t understand why someone may be upset clearly isn’t a part of the shiny hunting community
People get mad for the same reason people get mad at cheated speedruns. The scavenger hunt community depends on honesty and someone who lies gives everyone else a bad name. People who don’t understand why someone might be upset are clearly not part of the diamond hunting community.
No one has a problem with the shinies being cheated. The issue comes from Kyle trying to pass it off as a genuine thing, and only telling the truth after being lambasted online. Makes it harder for people to believe not just Kyle, but other shiny hunters when they get lucky.

While it’s not a big deal, it is dishonest. Misleading people and then doubling down is just a lame thing to do. You don’t want to be known as a dishonest person. Apologizing for that was the right thing to do, and I wish you good luck in the new year with your future content.

Why not come out and say it was fake from the beginning? You acted like it was real only to double back when it went viral. Like I’m sure your community would’ve understood if you said what you just said when it happened. People had to call you out for you to do it…
