Earlier today, the TwitchPlaysPokemon channel on Twitch accomplished something huge: it caught all 151 of the Pokemon.
The action unfolded as part of a massively multiplayer online version of Pokemon that has often been called a "social experiment." Participants enter commands into the channel's chat room, which has been adapted into a controller for the game.
Not unlike the infinite monkey theorem, somehow this uncoordinated play resulted in the capture of Mewtwo today with 2,000 fans looking on.
The channel is controlled by an anonymous Australian programmer. This game of Pokemon Red started recently to commemorate the one-year anniversary of the channel which began operating since last February.
After 40 days of play and six million commands from users telling what the protagonist to do, the Pokedex was completed. The battle to capture Mewtwo took only a few minutes and proved to be a difficult one (you can watch it above or starting around 15:30 here).
As to be expected, the internet only slightly lost its shit:
