I'm surprised this hasn't caught the attention of NL yet. 20000+ people are inputting commands into a Twitch stream with 20-40 seconds of delay to play through a single game of Pokemon Red. It's like watching the video game equivalent of a million monkeys on a million typewriters and it's hilarious.

Surprisingly, they've already gotten the first three badges. Right now, they've been stuck on the same part for over three hours.

I had fun once and it was awful.

They've been going at this for nearly 3 days, huh? XD

I wonder if they can get more coordinated...?

...what if they end up, like, accidentally releasing their Pokémon? XD

They somehow got past the ledges. Here's a doc that sums up their progress so far.

Good grief! I am surprised they've done anything at all! XD
(I actually jumped in for a little bit; I don't think I made much of a difference! XD)

Ahahaha, some quotes from the summary:

“With an infinite number of monkeys and an infinite number of typewriters, one will type Shakespeare's plays."-Émile Borel. This means we have to win eventually.

“This is the most epic fight in all of pokemon history, watch as Red, a mentally challenged boy who doesn't listen to Oak's words of wisdom pits his pokemon up against his opponent's growlithe”

“Dear oak, Its been 3 days since i started this journey. And you know what *** becoming a pokemon master. I am going to be ledge jumping master. I been training 8 hour a day. send my love to mom. signed Red Ledge jumper.”

"Hey Gary, look at this sweet helix fossil. Are you interested in it? How about this nugget?"
“What is a red? A miserable pile of down.”
“Red hears the kitchen’s siren call… He is mysteriously drawn back there.”

This is so great!

I watched them get the third badge, pretty impressive that they actually managed to get past the bins.
Doesn't seem like they're getting past this spot anytime soon though, been there all day.

Not to question Iz's modding abilities but it's not as if I'm trying to advertise my link to get some personal gain out of it or something. The mods have allowed speedrun stream links to be posted and discussed here, and this is similar.

They actually made some progress and then lost a battle, and got sent back to Cerulean.

That explains why they were back to trying to cut down the tree when I woke up this morning.

...what I am wondering is, how did they get coordinated enough to just even get into the gyms? You have to be kind of precise to get in a door...

And what happened with the Helix fossil? Did they end up tossing it or something?

@Gioku You can't toss it, or they would have.
They've tried to use it about 50 million times.

I'm just shocked that they've made it to Celadon City.

@Gioku I haven't seen the Moon Stone one, but I have seen this

This has become my favorite stream. if we use the helix fossil enough, maybe it will cut down the tree.

Who are you running from? (?_?)/
someday there will be a cactus pokemon, that is actually good.
(O vvv O)/ add me if you want to play KI:U, or ACNL, OR Pokemon
I make a lot of typos, so expect many of my posts to be edited

They managed to cut the tree, and made it into the gym after much struggling with the LEDGE... Then Pidgeot fainted and they whited out... >_>
