What is twitch plays pokemon?

Twitch plays pokemon, or TPP, was a social experiment started by an anonymous Australian, who wished to conduct a social experiment to see if twitch could collectively play pokemon through the chat. Chat inputs would be translated to button presses on a hacked rom of pokemon red.

TPP started going viral with 1000 monkeys banging on typewriters, to an all-time peak of over 150000 viewers.

Pictured: Gone viral


Also Pictured: Suck it League


Hacked rom? What is different?
In this version of pokemon red, there is an extra "151" on the title screen. That's it. I like to think the streamer is a bit of a troll.

How do I play?

Say the button you want pushed in chat (a, b, start select, up, down, left, right), please be aware that there is considerable input lag and will take awhile before your inputs are registered.

Pictured: Twitch playing DDP


The owner has also implemented a controversial governance system of anarchy vs democracy.

Anarchy? Democracy?



TwitchPlaysPokemon now has two modes, anarchy and democracy.

Anarchy mode is the "classic" mode, where everyone's inputs are applied immediately.

Democracy mode is vote-based and has a more sophisticated input system.

The arrow shows which side has the current momentum.

In order to switch from one mode to the other, the mode that isn't active needs 75% of votes as indicated by the dotted line, the current percentage of votes is indicated by the black line.

In democracy mode you can compile a sequence of inputs. left2 will move left twice, left2down2 will move left twice and down twice.

Pictured: Voting


Factions:



The original players, led by the Lord helix. They consult the material form of their lord, the helix fossil, in times of need.



Anarchists. They want ... anarchy I guess.



Democratic worshippers. They took over TPP to install their puppet, Eevee, which evolved into Flareon, into power.



The trolls, the bots and the protesters.


The team: All accurate as of posting.

I don't think they have Eevees in the game corner.

It's Abra, Dratini, and Porygon.

It always amazes me that there are those that accept "guidance" from something that isn't even there. Our Lord Helix has been with us nearly every step of the way. He gave us his Prophet... his one and ONLY Prophet who continues to guide us to this day!

So this happened today.

I was helping my uni's open day and chatting to the guy next to me while no one was around to ask questions. He asks me "...so... Have your heard of TwitchPlaysPokemon?". "...yes."

I think we've gone mainstream.
