Damn, since this is completely automated they can easily leave this on 24/7. Dude's gonna have level 100 pokemon before he even makes it to Misty.

It's so dumb, but I can't look away. This is amazing. Wonder how long it'll take them to truly escape this grass.
Edit: It's a shame the game's too old to have shinies, because that would make for an amazing occurrence here.

Most of the really hard stuff was probably accomplished when the amount of people in chat was low. I'd be shocked if they even make it through Mt. Moon with 2,000 people in the chat.

Imagine if they grind up high enough it would be able to solo the game with scratch. At least up until the Elite 4.

Wait... looking at positioning... did they go through Mt. Moon and get the fossil and then come out the wrong side?

Oh hey, they got out of the patch of grass, in 8 hours they might make it to Cerulean City

This is so oddly fascinating. I need to get to bed, but I think I'll see if they make it back in the cave or the grass first. Or they end up in the Pokemon center, I guess.

I just realized they have the Helix Fossil. Did they manage to get that far into Mt. Moon and then back out again?

The stream delay would make it impossible to cancel the evolution unless people were spamming B a battle or two prior to the level up.

You don' t even need to grind that much. I'm playing through SoulSilver at the moment and I'm at 6 badges with one trained Pokémon. I fought all Pokémon and trainers I encountered, but I haven't grinded. The only hard moment was Miltank. I did the same for FireRed with a Venosaur where I'm "stuck" at that ghost Elite Four with a level 100 Venosaur.

Pretty sure it was a tap
Yeah, that's super impressive in that case.

Argh, this is like watching a really stupid little puppy walk along the side of a road, you know it's never going to get anywhere but all you can do is just kind of yell things it can't understand to try to keep it from running into traffic.

Wow, they got a Charmeleon, that means they had the discipline to not press the b button while it was evolving, right? Impressive.
Was thinking this too, was that perhaps something that got introduced later? I cannot recall if it was in R/B.

Seems like the people trying to play the game right are able to outdo the trolls. Its tough though.
The stream warriors are handicapped by the delay, though. When you type in a command, there's 60 seconds worth of inputs to go through before yours has a chance of going through. For the stream monsters pressing start, it doesn't matter what's happening when their input is read. It'll always have the desired effect.

And it's back in the Spearow grass. I'll check this in the morning, see if they've at least made it through the cave by the time I wake up.
