'Twitch Plays Pokémon' is one of the boldest and strangest experiments in modern gaming. Using the platform Twitch, thousands of users fight for control of one singular character.

The cultural impact of the game can't be understated and with such a popular game existing, there are bound to be some pros and some wannabes.

Twitch Plays Pokémon uses the hugely popular gaming platform Twitch to put the pros and wannabes together to see what would happen if they all tried using the one protagonist. Users are given all the controls of the game to choose from, which causes a chaotic maelstrom of commands to go through.

The game can be set to anarchy where all the controls are valid or democratic, where only the most valid controls are given importance. Either way, it makes for a chaotically good time.
