Nintendo has been putting out ASMR videos – that’s Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response, or ‘videos that are supposed to make the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end’ – for a while now. Over the holidays we got 30 minutes of a woman playing her Switch Lite in a log cabin, for example. The latest official release in this ASMR ‘series’ features logs, too, although a certain Fire-type Pokémon is making short work of them.
Yes, if you’ve ever wanted to snuggle up beside a napping Charmander, this is your best chance unless you invest in a plushie. For 30 minutes (and 10 seconds), the cracking wood in ‘Charmander’s Fireside Slumber‘ accompanies the sleeping starter ‘mon. He even moves a couple of times! Check it out above while you’re having a relaxing lunch, perhaps, and remember to put your headphones in for the proper effect.
Considering Charmander is a creature whose tail is permanently ablaze, you might question his need for a log fire. Then again, it seems the warmth has send him into blissful sleepy-byes. The Pokémon Trainers among us realise that this would be the perfect time to attack with Squirtle, but we think he might be using Charm on us. Is ‘Cute’ a move? Whatever it is, it’s super effective.
