Mizkif potentially scammed: Buyer underpays for rare Slowpoke Plushie at OTK Garage Sale – Twitch streamer “Mizkif” found himself in a state of shock during the OTK Garage Sale as a buyer seemingly underpaid for a rare Slowpoke plushie. The plushie, a valuable piece of Pokémon merchandise, was sold for $200, a fraction of its estimated worth.
The OTK Garage Sale, announced just days before on October 1, aimed to allow fans in the Austin area to purchase pre-owned items from their favourite streamers. The attention-grabbing Slowpoke plushie became a focal point when a buyer acquired it for $200.

While determining the exact value of the plushie is challenging, the consensus among those present at the garage sale was that the $200 price tag significantly undervalued the item. Fellow Twitch streamer Tectone went so far as to suggest that someone should be held accountable for the oversight, stating, “Somebody needs to get fired.”
A viral clip captured the moment the buyer left with the plushie, prompting astonishment among organizers and OTK streamers. Some expressed disappointment at the seemingly low selling price, with one participant questioning, “The Slowpoke went for $200? That’s it? And you’re mad at me about Pokémon cards earlier? Who sold that?”
Mizkif, attempting to shift blame, called out Jacob, who, in turn, pointed out that he had sought confirmation multiple times. Mizkif later revealed that the Slowpoke plushie was priced at $2.6K on eBay, leaving others astonished at its potential undervaluation.
It’s important to note that rare collectibles like the Slowpoke plushie often lack a fixed price, and Redditors noted variations in pricing, with the official website suggesting around $450. The scarcity of the product might contribute to fluctuating prices, with scalpers potentially overcharging.
The incident sparked discussions, where some users held Mizkif accountable, citing a date change for the event.
