That’s right, this weekend saw Twitch Plays Pokémon reach the end of Pokémon X, the latest title in the Pokémon series before Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire launches this November which means that Twitch Plays Pokémon has successfully (I use that term loosely) completed every single currently available generation of Pokémon, and in turn it’s racked up some pretty impressive statistics.
Twitch Plays Pokémon first raised eyebrows in February when the Twitch Plays Pokémon twitch channel launched with Pokémon Red/Blue allowing thousands of people to collectively use commands via the chat to control the character and complete the game. The channel and stream itself became so popular that Twitch had to do some damage control as it was effecting other streams and the chat server as a whole. Since then the hype has died down, but the games kept on coming.
In total, Twitch Plays Pokémon has played through Red, Crystal, Emerald, FireRed, Platinum, HeartGold, Black, Black 2, and Pokémon X accumulating a total of around 140 hours of gameplay time across all nine games, that’s bloody impressive if I do say so.
Following the end of Pokémon X it looks like TwitchPlaysPokémon will be letting people try their hand at Pokémon Staduim 2 until Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire launches on Nintendo 3DS and 2DS this November 28.
Here’s the final screen for Pokémon X *silently sheds a tear*
