When you have thousands of people controlling the same game, there are bound to be a ton of memorable hijinks. And so now that 'Twitch Plays Pokémon' beat the first generation of Pokémon games, it seems like a good time to reminisce on some of the stream's high points, no?
Here's TheJWittz's personal list of best 'Twitch Plays Pokémon' moments—it's a good collection of moments. While you should watch the video to get a good rundown/rationale behind each item, here's the brief list:
- The ledge incident
- Getting stuck on Cinnabar Island
- The capture of Zapdos
- The battle of Lt. Surge
- The first Giovanni battle
- Digging out of Giovanni's office accidentally with Dig Rat
- ATV exploiting a loophole and somehow destroying Lance's Dragonite—all while being supremely underleveled
- Flareon, the false prophet
- Bloody Sunday/the accidental release of a dozen Pokemon
- The revival of Helix
Personally, I feel like I was never watching when cool stuff happened, but I did happen to catch a good bulk of the Elite Four run. Hence, that final stretch was the most memorable to me—in particular, watching our Venemoth/ATV take down a Dragonite. Hilarious and unexpected, and, as far as mechanics go, a good example of why gen one kind of sucked. (Sorry to say!) I also can't forget about the Helix revival—I mean, that was practically the whole point of the playthrough! Beyond those two things, I'm now looking forward to what sorts of cool antics we'll see come out of the Crystal run—since that's what 'Twitch Plays Pokémon' is currently playing.
What about you, what were some of your favorite moments of the first run of 'Twitch Plays Pokémon'?
