We succeeded! We beat the Elite 4 on Pokémon Red and subsequently beat the game in just over half a month! It’s a feat accomplished mostly through anarchy and has more social implications than I’m going to bother analyze – despite being one class from a Psychology degree. I wouldn’t have believed it was possible if you had told me it would happen a month ago.
Bird Jesus and AA-J (Zapdos), made their way through the Elite 4 after a few attempts – not to downplay the role of Lord Helix, ATV (Venemoth) and the rest of the team. I still don’t know how we got through Victory Road so easily, it happened overnight while I was asleep, but suffice to say it was easier than getting over the initial ledge.
So what happens now? Twitch has started up Pokémon Crystal and are back to square one. The creator has promised to give Red the same team we had in Pokémon Red, and our first choice was Totodile – a pokemon uniquely weak against Zapdos.
That being said, don’t expect any more updates. The social experiment was a resounding success and it’s over. Tens of thousands of people can beat a game of Pokémon while pulling the main character in all directions at once.
