  2. Hazem Sherif

    That intro is a psychological horror experience, I feel like my brain has been rewired for some purpose.

  3. ChibiMiiTen

    Wow, a game theory that isn't a lore theory but a science theory.

  4. Śmieszny Walenty

    Bruh they look like Orang

  5. Joshua Mullin

    Even though it's a game where enything is possible, still like his since

    Well, actually, first of all your basics of lightning are correct, however the biggest mystery of lightning to this date is still, how lightning overcomes air's resistance because believe it or not the high voltage alone isn't enough to make streamers connect. One of the current biggest theories as to how this works, with some evidence to back it is that cosmic rays bombard millions of atoms on their way down ionizing a channel towards the ground, creating a path for the voltage to effect the ground. For lightning this takes a lot, not because of the voltage but because of the distance lightning has to travel. Across a stadium, is a different story, where the energy needed to ionize a channel from a pokemon holding a large amount of static electricity is much lower. Tazers need those wires because they create an easy path for the electricity, but theoretically you could emit ionizing radiation in a beam to make a temporary channel on the air, knocking electrons loose from their particles in a path to the target, and then touch that beam with your high voltage protential... The reality is for electric pokemon to work on our world, it's not that complicated BUT there's a good chance that after many years of pokemon center visits from fighting electricv attacks, your pokemon will die of cancer, or hatch dittos from having high energy cosmic rays shot at it. Electric type pokemon are actually radioactive pokemon.

    The intro gag was a little off... Gotta pronounce “Shiny” as “Shineh” xD e.g. “Cos I’m SHAAIIINNNEEHHH!!!”

    Pokemon isnt real,Digimon is real My grandpa


    I remember, when I was a high school freshman, the first GameTheory I ever watched (a portal video about companion cubes having people in them) and when I saw him do his thing is the beginning I thought "I hate when people try to pad watch time like this". Then I watched another and another and repeated the process. That was almost 7 years ago and I can’t remember the last time a didn’t rewind or pause the video when someone talked during the start of the video.

    No no no no no no no the netherite is combined with diamond right but netherite is better than dimaind with out dimomd so combining dimond with it make it weaker right no the Smithing table upgrades your armor right no it combines it the dimonds should breaks when combined no because it was not combined with heat how did it combined upgrade it upgrade it how it upgrade the the dimond was teared so it could combined

  21. Zinky Doinks

    ya know jake im not oing to open the cabinet

  22. Fred

    6:04 you can’t catch Umbreon in I’m pretty sure every main game. You gotta grind to catch/receive/breed a shiny eevee

  23. ztsb45

    With switch games you can choose your language at the start of the game, and with home you can transfer pokemon from games on different switch profiles to the same home account, effectively allowing you to trade with yourself and get those alternate language pokemon if you want.

    1. ztsb45

      Unfortunately it's not exactly the same as trading and won't allow you to evolve trade evo pokemon

  24. The Captain

  38. Vodka

    No offense it sounds like your trying to to blame people, i think youtubers arent bad, but your trying to change the subject of shitty advertise. And shut up about johnney depp also you sound slightly like that kid that says HE DID IT TO. but yes online people are overlooked. I agree.

  52. Demi Jade

    The picture of 'Evan' from the part where he I stalking about the book is scary because he has brown hair like.... CC's hair is brown too..... And has a brother that's really strange......? Can someone tell me to stop?! I think the book Evan is actually CC. But how can he be? CC is dead! CALM DOWN!!! Please can someone help me theorise? I am confused. Could Evan (the dad) be CC? I think he can, plus SKFFB said he'd bring him back, so maybe his body works, but when he's asleep he posses Golden Freddy but to make it look like he is still, he got his body to toss and turn? I think this is a good theory, for me. Can anyone agree? Thanks! BYE

  63. Aman Saad

    My dumb theory on how the drowned became the drowned : A dumb human decided to eat a creeper for lunch and then his face evolved to look like a creeper . Then he was cast out for looking weird . He spent days without clothes and without bathing . He was covered in moss and his survived by eating fish . One day he was near a giant magma field . It pulled his ship down but he discovered he could breathe underwater . He got angry , he wanted revenge against all the other humans . So he built a structure using all the prismarine he found underwater and hid gold in it to lure the humans into the monument for gold . He made guardians to kidnap them . Then he would give them a boat , make them eat a creeper let them go to go through the same thing he went through . So they became the same creatures he became and the surviving humans called them the drowned

  80. McDude

    Shinies used to be special now its more common to see a full team of hacked shinies online than it is to see normal pokemon
