Has anyone else been following TwitchPlaysPokemon?

On and off. I think I find the community around it more entertaining than the actual thing itself. Its too annoying to watch, but keeping up with the happenings and seeing all the inside jokes makes it somewhat worth it.

Same here.  I'm just intrigued at how quickly the community grew and made its own lore that overshadows the game.

Someone linked the Twitch comments to press the commands on an emulator and everyone typing in the chat box is playing pokemon.
Referred to as the 1000 monkeys play pokemon.

At first people thought it was impossible to do anything due to the coordination needed between thousands of individuals, but they are actually progressing quite nicely.

This is a pretty decent summary on the lore the community made.

I'll catch an after action report when it finishes. Actively watching it is just infuriating cause all the start spam.

If the internet was a place, this is probably what I think Pokemon/Twitch would look like:

A friend and myself were discussing the Twitch Plays Pokemon thing and he commented that the idea is so simple, yet brilliant. Now that streamer is likely making bank from ad revenue seeing how he is partnered and can receive subs too.

He could make so much more if he had ads during the stream, but as he said in an interview he never expected it to be this popular so I doubt he is even looking to turn a profit.
