TwitchPlaysPokémon has become a rather iconic staple of the streaming service over the last few years; the original live stream, which happened all the way back in 2014, completely took the internet by storm, generating many hours of madness and memes that will potentially live on for a very long time.
If you're unfamiliar with the concept, TwitchPlaysPokémon is a live-streaming channel that allows its viewers to input commands in the chat, controlling the characters on screen. Over the years the channel has played through a variety of official Pokémon titles, and even some unreleased hacks, with everyone viewing the stream being able to take part. Now, to celebrate the channel's four-year anniversary, a new campaign has begun with Pokémon Red and Blue being played simultaneously side-by-side.
The usual madness is still in full effect with players inputting hundreds of commands per minute for the game of their choosing, causing a whole host of hilarious outcomes along the way. The stream has massively progressed from its humble beginnings, however; full team lists are now displayed beneath each game, and players can also bet tokens in a game of Pokémon Pinball which is being played at the bottom of the screen. The video below shows the moment both games were taking on Brock, the first gym leader.
If you want to watch the action unfold for yourself you can visit the stream on Twitch here; at the time of writing, the two games were actually in the middle of a trade with each other! Make sure to drop us a comment below if you plan on taking part - we'd love to hear how you get on.
I'm still peeved that we never got the colourised versions on 3DS. I mean, the colours are coded into the ROMs for God's sake!
All hail, Lord Helix, our lord and savior!
Don't forget Bird Jesus and All Terrain Venomoth
@shaneoh But of course! How could I ever forget you, Bird Jesus? And you as well, All Terrain Venomoth? Please oh lords, oh punish me for I have sinned!
The memes will be strong with one lol.
What an age we live in... a pointless, ridiculous and totally awesome age we live in.
Ah, happy days. I think I've still got a copy of the save file from the original on a hard drive somewhere.
the blue version is playing as a girl, so the rom used was hacked in some way
Playing Pokémon Red And Blue Simultaneously is easy. i did that back in the 90's back when the game was released. because i had multiple gameboy systems i was able to beat the game in less than 24 hours.
Interesting. I haven't watched this in some time now.
@sillygostly Yes! I emailed Nintendo back in 2012 asking whether Super Gameboy functionality would ever be added to the virtual console emulator. How hard would that have been? And it would have allowed those black and white gems to move more copies.
@stevenw45 now imagine several thousand people mashing on those two Game Boys at the same time and you couldn't stop it.
A giant, clusterpoop of sweaty, smelly, hands, just reaching out trying to push the player down a ledge, snickering, smiling, laughing, farting in your face. There is no space to breath, no space to move. You are surrounded by pure chaos (and bellies, because you'll likely be kneeling on the floor as people surround you like a sick, twisted nerd orgy.) Sure, you can beat two games solo, but can you beat off the other players? (OK I meant fight off, but beat off was funnier.)
That's essentially Twitch Plays Pokemon. And it is hilarious. Bird Jesus forevah.
@SomeWriter13 that comment made little sense. that just may be because of how many words you used in so little room. the "beat off other players" brought the paragraph together.
i probably could fight off other gamers however i am not that much of a competitive player. competitive stops being fun if one player (or team) is vastly better than the player (or team) that they are playing against....
enjoy your sick, twisted nerd orgy. whatever that is.
I might poke my nose in and see where its at later. I doubt it will ever generate the insane popularity it did back when it began though.
Also @GoldenGamer88 what anime is that icon from?
@Heavyarms55 Violet Evergarden, the most beautiful anime I‘ve seen to date and I have seen quite a lot.
@GoldenGamer88 I thought so! Thanks and I completely agree!
@stevenw45 it was an attempt at humor. Unfortunately it didn't seem like it came across correctly. 😅 My apologies.
i got the joke (and a bad joke), which is why i told you to enjoy your sick, twisted nerd orgy.
now lets move away from these Pokemon games and head over to the newest Nintendo switch games....
@stevenw45 gee, thanks...
you are welcome.....
