    1:32 actually: The shiny chance of a wild Pokemon encounter is 1 in 8192 in Pokemon generations 1 through 4. In Pokemon generations 5 through 8 the chances of finding a shiny Pokemon are nearly HALVED changing the chances of finding shiny Pokemon from 1 in 8192 to a mere 1 in 4296 with some exceptions. Naming a few of those exceptions: The Poke-Radar with a chain of 20 or 30 (I don't remember) and the Ultra-Space ride minigame in Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon having a 1 in 33 chance of finding a shiny Pokemon when going into the correct Ultra-Wormhole.

    Hey Mat while we wait for security breach to come out maybe you can do a theory on a really creepy playlist I found on PAblack. It’s called, “The Walton Files.” I don’t know if you care for it or will even see this but it was just a suggestion. If you do see this then while you watch the playlist I think you should check the comment section there’s some clues to help you figure out what’s happening. Anyways I love your videos Mat keep up the good work! Here’s the playlist link.

    So I tend to make connections between things I see or hear that no one else sees, but did anyone else besides me think of Darkiplier when Golden Freddy’s eyes lit up red and blue in this video? Because... you know... Darkiplier is two souls... one of them’s blue, and... the other’s red and stuff...? Anyone?

    Small theory: I believe that the crying child’s name is actually Gregory. I say this because when I watched the new trailer, I brightened up one of the scenes and saw the stripes on the shirt, just like the crying child’s shirt.
