'Twitch Plays Pokémon' Takes On The Kalos Region Of Pokémon X

Thanks to a 3DS modded with a capture kit, 'Twitch Plays Pokémon' finally ventures into the Kalos region. With Lady Helix on the team, how can it fail?


Finally the hivemind-controlled Pokémon insanity makes it to the sixth generation of games. The 3DS HDMI mod was required to advance to the current gen, as previous generations were streamed via PC emulation, and there is currently no way to emulate 3DS games.

As of this writing, the group-controlled trainer is trying to navigate that tricky hedge maze from Pokémon X and Y, and I suspect he'll be there for quite some time, what with nearly 2,000 people inputting commands all at once.

As Joystiq points out, having Pokémon X running on real hardware means the group will have access to the game's network functions, which so far has resulted in a trade for the goddess Lady Helix, long may she reign.

You can watch all the action here, and by action I mean bumping into things over and over again. It's inspiring!
