We all know those streets in our cities where there is a higher chance of something bad happening. We avoid them, but there are situations that nobody could expect. Who could imagine that a fish is capable of stealing your money through Nintendo Switch? The streamer Mutekimaru of course not.
The Japanese content creator was broadcasting a very special live, in which several fish simply swim underwater and a device records their movements to send them to Pokémon Scarlet and Purple. In this way, hundreds of people were absorbed watching how the animals explored Paldea from top to bottom without realizing it.
At one point during the streaming, the Game Freak game crashes, which causes it to be restarted and returns the user to the initial screen of the console. The problem arose when the fish continued to move, in such a way that they changed the profile name and what is worse, entered the Nintendo eShop.
They accepted the Terms of Service and displayed the credit card information associated with Mutekimaru’s account. What’s more, the fish managed to make a purchase worth 500 yen and even downloaded the Nintendo 64 titles included in the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack. Why didn’t the streamer stop all this chaos?
This is because he was not in front of his Nintendo Switch at the time, but luckily was able to request reimbursement of the money that his fish illegally spent. Perhaps it was a way of protesting at having them play more than 1,144 hours at that time without a break. You can watch them live if you want.
