At 0d, Twitch Plays Pokemon started as small humble experimentation with mod code for Pokemon Red which allowed the audience in the chat control the game with their soon-to-become chaotic will by having up to 30 million people entering commands at the same time for the same character. These early days were godless, for the Helix Fossil wasn’t around to illuminate the path to salvation, yet somehow we moved on passed Pallet Town despite the constant moving around in circles and lack democracy mode to actually get things done. Nonetheless, this was a time of stability before decisions began to pop up.
In less than a day, our collective commands managed to beat Brock’s rock type Gym in Pewter City, and from them we moved on to Mt. Moon to foil Team Rocket’s plans. But, what once seemed like a simple part of the game, then became the source of countless documents of the scripture of the Great Helix Fossil. After beating the Super Nerd who was hogging the fossils of Mt. Moon, we choose to take with us the Helix Fossil, which at many occasions was consulted during battle in order to seek its holy advice on how to succeed in our quest. O, Holy one, you’ve blessed us with your words to lead us to victory. O, holy one, may your just judgment keep us away from the PC and the damnation of the Dome Fossil.
Progress in our quest remained steady, for our team (led by Bird Jesus at the time) moved on through various adversities by defeating Team Rocket at Silph Co., the Pokemon Tower, and their own HQ, as well as gaining the following 5 badges in a relatively calm fashion. So, by 9d everything seemed to be coming up Milhouse despite our brief encounter with the False Prophet Flareon. At some point during this progress, the method in which the mod behaved was changed by introducing the game modes of anarchy and democracy. Anarchy accepts all commands that were coming into the game, whereas democracy only accepts the most popular commands decided through an election. However, this has also sprouted divisions between the believers of fundamental anarchy and the productivity of democracy.
But, our ambitions were becoming desires for epic milestones, for on 10d our team moved on forward to the Power Plant to catch Zapdos. Though initial this tasked appeared to be near impossible, the Australian players managed to remain productive and caught Zapdos using the Master Ball. And though this epic feat appeared to lead us into a new enlightened era, it was solely the beginning of what would later be known as Bloody Sunday.
In a foolish attempt to retrieve Zapdos from the PC, the inept attempts of the collective resulted on the losses of 12 pokemon by accidentally releasing them without having the opportunity of ever getting them back. Our ancestors’ knowledge should’ve been listened to, for in their early attempts to use the PC only taught us that it lead to damnation. But our ambitions were too great, and so were our losses. So, as we continue on, we shall always pray to the father (the Great Helix), the son (Bird Jesus), and the Holy Spirit (Rick Ghastly) for advice in this dangerous path ahead of us.
Despite the darkness that followed Bloody Sunday, at 11d our Lord and savior, the Great Helix was revived from its slumber to help us in our quest now actively guiding us forward. And at 12d, our team succeeded at retrieving the secret key to get to the 7th gym in which we defeated Blaine’s fire-type pokemon. Now, we shall only beat Giovanni back in Viridian City, then our path will open to the Elite Four. Though, O, sweet audience, by the time this is read, the Helix must have completed the prophecy and helped us defeat the rest our challenges. Know what I am saying is the truth, for only the Helix knows what will happen next, that is after our time in Pokemon Red is over. But, let us rejoice at our progress, and let us look at the horizon where only the Helix knows where we will go next, and with such gratifying thoughts in our minds and our spirits, let us pray:
