Pokemon Unite on Twitch

Just hours after release on Nintendo Switch on July 21, streaming viewership numbers skyrocketed with streamers like Saqib ‘LIRIK’ Zahid playing the game for 30,000 watchers.

Charles ‘MoistCr1TiKaL‘ White and Sebastian ‘forsen’ Fors also joined in on all the fun, pulling in 25,000 viewers combined as they took to the arena and duked it out for the crown.


Over 200,000 Pokemon fans were watching the newest entry in the series be played live, making it the fourth most-viewed category on the platform as of right now. And it makes some wonder, does this have any type of esports potential? It’s got everything: the MOBA-style gameplay and it’s enjoyable to watch.

But interestingly enough, butting heads with other streamers isn’t the reason why he’s now “done” with collaborations. It turns out that something else bothers him much
