Hey everybody. It's me DeWarioFreak here!

―DeWarioFreak's Intro

Anthony Fernandez, better known online as DeWarioFreak, is a YouTube channel that produces Pokémon and anime parody content, as well as weekly gaming livestreams.

DeWarioFreak is best known for the abridged series Pokémon Sun and Moon Abridged which has accumulated more than a million views across multiple episodes.

Before creating abridged and parody content on the channel, the channel focused on gaming videos and vlogs by Anthony.

History

2011 to 2015

Before beginning abridged content, for several years the DeWarioFreak channel had lots of Let's play series by Anthony, and several other videos series as well. Most of these have been unlisted or privatized since due to poor quality and inconsistency.

2016 - present

In September 2016, the first episode of Pokémon Generations Abridged was released, an abridged series of the YouTube series Pokémon Generations. After producing several episodes, in December 2016 the first episode of Pokémon Sun and Moon Abridged was released. This video immediately passed all other series DeWarioFreak had made prior in terms of views, likes, and reception.

In 2017, DeWarioFreak slowly stopped producing the content from the years prior, and began focusing solely on Pokémon abridged content.

Channels

There are several channels that lie in the DeWarioFreak group of channels.

DeWarioFreak (youtube.com/dewariofreak) is the main/base channel. Nearly all content is uploaded here.

DeWarioFreak Backup (youtube.com/channel/UC1QQRJ-qHmHF5gDWoLKbQyA) is a backup channel used by Anthony in case the main channel is ever deleted for copyright infringement or other reasons. Although there is currently no content on it, Anthony has stated he has interest in using it to inform viewers of takedown notifications and other things.

DeWarioFreak 2nd Channel (youtube.com/channel/UCW09Ldp5akDv11-vzColNZQ) generally consists of content that is non-abridged related, or not considered relevant enough to be on the main channel.

DeWarioFreak Abridged Compilations (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCU5deZA6-VLTdZPtD4ixVsQ) is a channel where compilations of the abridges are posted.

Copyright Issues

The DeWarioFreak main channel has many times had copyright claims and strikes, as the videos rely heavily on using footage from the Pokémon anime. As such, claimants such as ShoPro and The Pokemon Company have used the DMCA process YouTube provides multiple times.

Anthony has stated multiple times that he believes the abridged content created and posted on the channel is fair use. He has disputed all claims on removed or claimed videos, to success every time.

DeWarioFreak has also called out YouTube for not providing a fair system for content creators multiple times on YouTube and Twitter.
