Twitch Plays Pokémon mightily topple the Elite Four

Update: After 16 days, 7 hours, 45 minutes and 30 seconds, Twitch Plays Pokémon have beaten the game.

Original Story: By some cruel twist of fate, the efforts of nearly 100,000 concurrent viewers saw the Elite Four toppled in unique social phenomenon, Twitch Plays Pokémon.

With a party consisting of stream fan favourites, ranging from the titanic OMASTAR with its resilient Withdraw move to the rather underdeveloped Lapras “AIIIIIIRRR,” they felled Lorelei, Bruno, Agatha and Lance in turn, only to be bested at the final hurdle by rival Blue.

Having recovered in the nearby Pokémon Centre, the grind to victory continues and you can catch the stream, which is fast approaching its sixteenth consecutive day, below. What began as a harmless experiment is reaching a dramatic conclusion, let us know what you think of it all!

    They haven’t won yet. Are you trying to publish this article before it happens to beat everyone else?
