TwitchPlaysPokemon completes Pokemon Red in 16 days

The project “TwitchPlaysPokemon” which involved at least a million players in total and 121,000 players at peak during the same time, were playing Pokemon Red and guiding the protagonist (Red) though specific messages (directional commands, “B”, “A”, “select”, and “start”) sent into the Twitch stream’s chat room by users, and sends them to the emulator(which was Visual Boy Advance) as button input, thus controlling the game.

There has been much discussion on what this is about and why this was done and the whole project has gotten 33 million views in total. Terms such as Democracy/Anarchy and Helix Fossil were typed in as well as the commands, causing them to be internet memes.
