Viewers Band Together To Conquer TWITCH PLAYS POKEMON
By Malik Forté on March 1, 2014
After 16 consecutive days of crowd-controlled chaos and 35 million views later, the audience of Twitch Plays Pokémon has finally defeated the Elite Four. The live stream had over 100,000 concurrent viewers, contributing to (and counteracting) the efforts to complete Pokémon Red during its peak hours.
So what’s next for Twitch Plays Pokémon? Well at the current moment, there are still tens of thousands of viewers trying their hands at the Game Boy edition of Pokémon Trading Card Game. There’s also a countdown timer indicating that “a new adventure will begin” when it winds down on Sunday at 7pm ET. Though there’s been no confirmation on which Pokémon game will be featured in the new adventure, several rumors have suggested that Pokémon Silver will be next up to bat.
