Twitch plays Pokemon

So I'm sure everyone's head the saying "if you have an infinite amount of monkeys on keyboards and give them an infinite amount of time, they'll eventually write the complete works of Shakespeare"

Well, here it is: http://www.twitch.tv/twitchplayspokemon

Basically what happens when you have a bunch of people trying to do a single task, AKA our government.

He's not even doing anything he's walking around in circles and saving...
Is Twitch a person? I don't get why this is so popular.

@opmeTK: I think you can't drop the fossil because it's a key item. Not entirely sure on that though.

[quote=opmeTK]@imtwocats: Oh, alright. Haha I've never used Reddit and do not plan to

Why would they claim something so silly? it's a Pokemon... not a prophet O_O Can't you get BOTH Eevee and Lapras, though? I haven't played these games in probably 10 years so I may be mistaken...

And, can you explain to me what the Helix fossil thingy is. I think they put it in the PC? But can't they just get it back out.[/quote]

It's just extra fun to the series. The Helix fossil became an object of worship after people kept accidentally pressing a on it during every Pokemon battle, making it seem like they were worshiping it. Eventually it became a "religion" and people have had fun with it. http://askhelixfossil.com/

You can get both eevee and lapras, though for some reason people absolutely refused to accept that. After spending a day fighting over it, it resulted in an incident where in an attempt to put eevee into the PC, they accidentally released their charmeleon named ABBBBBBK ( (abby) and their rattata named JLVWNNOOOO (Jay Leno). Eventually people started calling eevee the false prophet to their Helix fossil religion because of the incidents.

Just think of it as one giant Pokemon social experiment. It's completely silly.

[quote=opmeTK]@imtwocats: how do you know if they're separated? it's impossible to read the chat because of all the spam.

are you just assuming?[/quote]

Check the reddit or something similar. They spent an entire day attempting to release flareon into the wild because a group claimed it was the false prophet. Now people are currently fighting over whether to use democracy or anarchy as the method to get to Giovanni.

They still need to go beat Giovanni. Unfortunately the group has been separated into multiple cults and nothing is getting done because of it.

The stupid lag is going to kill them all.
I been telling the program to press select.
So hopefully A+B+Start+Select happens and resets the game.

Hopefully they use the pokemon centers in every town. Imagine if they die in victory road and go back to viridian

Are you kidding me? They won't make it through the safari zone to get Surf. It will be impossible.

They've made it through 4 gyms in 4 days. I think they could run our government better than our current one.

Though now they're arguing over whether to take an eevee or lapras and the anti-eevee side refuses to stop trying to put eevee into the daycare. It's been 4 hours.
