Aside from both being incredibly iconic and one openly loving the other, there isn't a lot that Pokemon and PewDiePie have in common. Despite this, fans think that they've found a reference to the content creator in a recent episode of Pokemon Journeys, as Ash appears to be wearing some PewDiePie merchandise. If this were in fact the case, it would have interesting implications for the canon of the Pokemon universe, implying that PewDiePie is an actual character in it and potentially confirming the existence of things like YouTube and streaming. Naturally, this wasn't actually a reference to PewDiePie, but the similarity is interesting nonetheless.
In Pokemon, each of the gyms in a region tend to have a logo or symbol of some sort. Understandably, the logo for the fighting type gym is a fist, which just so happens to be very similar to the logo used by PewDiePie as a "Brofist."
One Reddit user posted an image of Ash and Goh in front of a computer monitor in which Ash's shirt had this logo on it, and immediately connected it to the Brofist logo from PewDiePie. It didn't take long for Pokemon fans to come out and explain why this likely isn't a direct reference, but PewDiePie and Pokemon fans alike are still having fun running with the comparison. There's even a scene just before Ash is shown wearing this shirt in which a chair that looks very similar to PewDiePie's gaming chair is shown.
Whether or not this is all just a coincidence or Pokemon's way of subtly showing support for the content creator remains to be seen. Even if it is the latter, it is unlikely that Nintendo will ever come out and make a statement about this. Although PewDiePie has always been a vocal supporter of Pokemon as a whole, his content sometimes crosses the line of what Nintendo is likely willing to endorse given their family friendly nature.
It's entirely possible that this was meant to be some kind of reference, but given the fact that Pokemon has been around longer than PewDiePie has been making content and has used this fighting type symbol before, it does seem unlikely. Regardless, fans are free to interpret and enjoy the show however they please, and neither PewDiePie nor Nintendo have come out and made any kind of statement about the potential reference. Players wanting to see the scene for themselves can find it in Pokemon Journeys episode 59.
It's no surprise that the release of Resident Evil Village has been well received by fans and critics alike, as it has been widely anticipated. That reception has translated into sales as Resident Evil Village nabbed three of the top 10 spots for Steam sales this week.
This information was sourced by Steam Database, a site used to display collections, view popular titles, and more. In the week ending May 9, the global top seller's page displayed Resident Evil Village at the top, but also a couple of different bundles including Resident Evil 7 and Resident Evil Village. Those titles came in ranked at six and seven, respectively.
