Twitch Plays Pokémon, the immensely popular project in which thousands of online players gathered together in order to play the beloved classic, Pokémon Red, was recently completed in an admirable 16 days, with an incredible participation of over 1 million players. It was a great achievement, one revered and praised across the internet as something we always want to see more of. As, really, what is more entertaining than watching a million people trying to work together to get through the puzzle of Team Rocket’s base, and praising the holy Helix Fossil?
Well, our hopes were answered, and Twitch Plays Pokémon decided that rather than leaving at their first victory, they would move on their ambitious project to the next Pokémon instalment, Crystal. This time round, they seem to be getting better, as it was yesterday confirmed that Crystal too has been defeated by this determined bunch of Pokémon lovers, 3 days quicker than the last time. In 13 days, hundreds of players worked together to hunt down Team Rocket and the new legendaries, Entei, Suicune and Raikou. Another victory in their belts! Well done!
And, better yet, their ambitions are only growing with each triumph. This time, Twitch Plays Pokémon are counting down to yet another instalment, Pokémon Emerald, the next in line. They hope to yet again explore the trials of online co-operation and democracy, and beat out Team Aqua quicker than ever before. And best of luck to them! The world will be watching! Or, at least the Pokémon lovers will!
