Should I Aim at Popular, High Competition Content or Less Popular, Low Competition Content?

So I've been having some really strange view statistics. My most popular series, my Pokémon TCG opening videos has had a drop in views in my last two videos. They used to get this huge spike in views within the first 30 minutes, but this spike has been reduced to about 25% of what it used to be. What's even stranger is that both of those videos are of a brand new set of cards, that just came out on Friday, and interest is really high. So is it just because of high competition right now? However what makes things even more interesting is that out of all my Pokémon TCG videos, my most popular ones are the ones with the highest competition, the openings, while anything else I cover about Pokémon TCG gets no where near as many views. However then to mix things up came the two recent opening videos. So overall, what content should I aim at and how can get more views from it?

Idk. This might be definitely due to high competition.

I have that with my latest picture on instagram. It immediately got lost in the sea of hashtags and it still has no likes.

Try to reach out to new people on a site or a new group which you didn't use before, maybe that will help with getting views. My latest video didn't do well either until I shared it in my first post in a gaming group on fb and I at least got some views
