During the highly anticipated Pokemon Championship Season, where Regional events from around the world are live-streamed on Twitch, an incident involving Oliver Barnett has stirred up controversy among the community. The incident occurred during the Malmo Regional Championships and has sparked accusations of cheating against Oliver Barnett.
In a pivotal moment during his match against Lasse Puisto, Oliver Barnett’s actions on the live stream have raised suspicion. As he reached for his last prize card, Oliver seemingly took a peek at one of his prize cards, leading many to accuse him of cheating.
The Pokemon Trading Card Game (TCG) has clear rules and regulations that players must adhere to during official tournaments. Looking at prize cards without the proper authorization, such as a trainer card that explicitly allows it, is strictly prohibited. Unfortunately, Oliver appeared to have violated this rule during the match.
Once the incident was captured on the Twitch stream, fans wasted no time sharing the clip on various social media platforms. The online community swiftly voiced their thoughts and concerns about the alleged cheating incident.
One individual expressed their frustration, stating, “If this is not met with a ban, it sets a dangerous precedent for future events. Players will feel entitled to bend the rules without consequences.”
Another comment emphasized the perceived nonchalant attitude, saying, “He casually looked at the card and just decided, ‘Nope, not this one.'” Such reactions exemplify the disappointment and disbelief shared by many fans.
Neither The Pokemon Company International (TPCi) nor Oliver Barnett have issued any statements regarding the accusations at the time of writing. However, should any official responses be made, this article will be promptly updated to reflect the latest information.
