RNG Plays Pokémon

So, apparently there's a similar stream going on called "RNG Plays Pokémon", which, rather than being run through chat commands, is run entirely through a random number generator as far as deciding the button to press. Is this possibly worth noting on this page? Schiffy (瀬藤健二) (Talk Contribs) 07:55,2/17/2014 (UTC)

There's a bunch of parodies and spin-offs (like the one that plays Tetris using the button inputs from this stream), none of which are anywhere near as popular. I don't think any specific ones need to be noted. --SnorlaxMonster 09:39, 17 February 2014 (UTC)
I think that the derivatives of Twitch Plays Pokémon warrant some mention, at least, as they indicate the far-spanning influence of the original stream. Even just a sentence or two would suffice; we could also source a Kotaku article, which mentions the Tetris connectivity amidst other similar streams. For what it's worth, [the Wikipedia article] pertaining to this event/stream also has a sentence/paragraph of the various derivatives as well, with several webpages used as references. Fenyx4 (talk) 03:49, 28 February 2014 (UTC)
Since the TPP channel has moved on to Crystal, would it be worth mentioning that a side channel completed Crystal version on the same day TPP completed Red? --GARY-DOS (talk) 03:53, 4 March 2014 (UTC)

Helix Fossil

We need to mention the Helix Fossil's state of being an internet meme. People on Twitch seem to worship it like a god. Satoshi Bakura (talk) 14:14, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

Could this be the realization of in-game Pokemopolis? I'm curious, if the game was modded so all 151 are obtainable, where does one acquire the dome fossil? --GARY-DOS (talk) 18:58, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

Tossed Items

I noticed there wasn't any record of items that have been tossed. This seems like a pretty notable thing since they've all been accidental and there are bound to be more items tossed in the future due to the 100,000+ people bumbling around in the chat. I know for sure there have been two moonstones and a nugget tossed. Should the be added to the page though? Iemongel (talk) 23:29, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

That might be a nice addition to the Items section. --FireGambit (talk) 17:21, 19 February 2014 (UTC)
I have the html ready so I'll go ahead and add it if there aren't any objections. Iemongel (talk) 23:25, 19 February 2014 (UTC)
Although I think most items have already begun to be added, I like the idea of documenting the various tossed items in the article. Fenyx4 (talk) 03:49, 28 February 2014 (UTC)
The sections were removed on 10:38 & 10:53, 12 March 2014‎ by SnorlaxMonster (→‎Progress: Tossed items really don't matter)(→‎Items: Same goes for these). I personally thought they were interesting but administration says otherwise :\ Rcmaehl (talk) 02:27, 17 March 2014 (UTC)

PC section

Should we make the PC section collapsible? I noticed that SnorlaxMonster removed it, but I think it would be nice if we at least gave readers the option to minimize; it's getting larger and larger. I have the code ready, if we decide to go through with this. --FireGambit (talk) 18:54, 22 February 2014 (UTC)

Meme section

We could use a section about various memes that have come from this. it's important in showing popularity/impact. Lu-igi board (talk) 20:49, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

I feel that the memes (particularly the Helix Fossil) do merit mention within the article, although I haven't seen most meme references (particularly ones like Slowpoke and Seaking) on Bulbapedia. If we can't provide a section/mention of the memes, maybe an external link to [this webpage] would suffice...? Fenyx4 (talk) 03:49, 28 February 2014 (UTC)

Maybe we could make a seperate article called Mythology of Twitch Plays Pokémon or something similar. Mariofan99 (talk) 20:48, 18 April 2014 (UTC)

I disagree with a meme section in general for most things. I vehemently disagree with a page on TPP memes, especially at that title. First, that titles is pretty misleading, as using mythology is just a way of getting around saying "memes". Memes in general at most a mention on the page it's relevant to, and I haven't seen anything for these memes that show that they're worth having a page to themselves. --It's Funktastic~!話してください 21:37, 18 April 2014 (UTC)
My personal two cents: Generally, I also think memes are not notable. Any of the non-TPP-related memes I've actually heard of (Mudkip or Seaking) are not mentioned here on the wiki, either. I wouldn't be opposed to maybe an index of memes in the Appendix space (something like Appendix:Fan terminology) but that's a whole other can of worms. Anyway, I think it's not notable for regular articles. I think the impact on the fandom is more interesting anyway (some ppl have made fanart for the Pokémon parties used in the TPP games, etc...) but even I dunno if that's notable either. :P --ZestyCactus 21:57, 18 April 2014 (UTC)

Continuing coverage?

Should we continue updating this page for the next challenge? If so, should we move the first play through to a sub page? - Chosen of Mana 22:23, 1 March 2014 (UTC)

If we do, the boxed and released Pokémon and such could be condensed into one drop-down show/hide box (I don't know what the heck they're called). There's really no point to have a listing of items; someone coming to this page to learn about TPP isn't going to glean any information from a list of items the player had at one point. Glik (talk) 23:11, 1 March 2014 (UTC)


We should probably explain what these are, as some people (myself included) have no idea. --Wynd Fox 20:12, 2 March 2014 (UTC)

They are already explained in the gameplay section (and honestly, almost everyone does know what they are).--Den Zen 20:18, 2 March 2014 (UTC)
Crystal forces democracy every hour, though (the game started on Anarchy by the way). Eridanus (talk) 20:19, 2 March 2014 (UTC)

Section Reordering and Splitting

It's my opinion that the Progress and Gameplay sections should either be moved above the Pokémon Red section or split into one for each game. I'd actually do this myself, however since it would be such a large edit, I'd rather gain a consensus first. - unsigned comment from Rcmaehl (talkcontribs)

Emerald restart chaos

Guess what? It got restarted again, except now with T being saved. Should we change accordingly as the again-restarted game proceeds, or wait until another restart and keep T in? ZappaOMati 01:15, 22 March 2014 (UTC)

Well, might as well hide "A" until a save or another restart occurs. ZappaOMati 01:18, 22 March 2014 (UTC)

Emerald countdown games

During the Emerald countdown, Mob has played non-Pokemon games, including but not limited to Sonic (not sure which) and Telefang. Eridanus (talk) 08:46, 22 March 2014 (UTC)


In the Pokémon subsection of the Pokémon Emerald section below the subsection there was a bunch of sections that is shown and hidden, could someone fix the problem? --Cinday123 (Talk) 02:59, 6 April 2014 (UTC)

Appears to have been fixed. --Pokechu22 (talk) 03:12, 6 April 2014 (UTC)
And thanks to the user Cold, it's no longer going to hide. --Cinday123 (Talk) 03:21, 6 April 2014 (UTC)


There seems to be an error in the Fire Red section: Mew's nickname should be on the page (it's Marc) and Lileep is shown as a Quagsire. StongRadd (talk) 17:50, 21 April 2014 (UTC)

Released section for HeartGold

Hello, I created the released section for Kenya (since he was released) but since I'm not very good with coding the boxes, etc. it's messed up. It would be nice if someone could fix this. Thank you.Nyamini (talk) 12:36, 31 May 2014 (UTC)

In-Game Name Colour

In the FireRed section where it explains the in-game stream name colours, it specifically states that the colour for those who participated in Pokémon Crystal is blue. If you check the stream, you will in fact see this is purple. Can we get a fix for this, please? Thanks.

(P.S. I know the change is already there, I was told on my talk that it was reverted, but then someone reverted it back (and no, it wasn't me), so this is now here for... conduct, I guess.) - PersonWithEyes (talk) 18:06, 14 June 2014 (UTC)


I think it is notable which Pokemon games were played during the intermissions:

  • Pokémon Pinball
  • Pokémon Puzzle Challenge
  • Pokémon Trading Card Game
  • Pokémon of the Past DX (The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX hack)
  • Pokémon Land GB (Super Mario Land hack)
  • Pokémon Adventure ("Sonic 3D Blast 5" hack)
  • Pokémon Pinball: Ruby & Sapphire
  • Game Boy Advance Video: Pokémon
  • Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team
  • Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky
  • Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Blue Rescue Team
  • Pokémon Conquest

..and a lot of non-Pokemon games. by: http://helixpedia.wikia.com/wiki/Intermission - unsigned comment from Asmod96 (talkcontribs)

Navigation Box

I have created an infobox in my sandbox (I'll translude below) to help jumping between the sub pages for each game easier. Wondering if it should be implemented?

Generation I: Red
Generation II: Crystal
Generation III: EmeraldRandomized FireRed
Generation IV: PlatinumRandomized HeartGold
Generation V: BlackBlaze Black 2
Generation VI: X

--Ditto51/Tom (My Talk Page) 16:00, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

But there aren't subpages for each game. Were there when you made this? Flarn2006 (talk) 05:36, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
There was for everything but maybe X. I was going through said pages when I realised you had to go back the main page ti switch between games.--Ditto51/Tom (My Talk Page) 06:29, 25 September 2014 (UTC)

A code that forces evolution

What? That isn't exactly clear on what it actually does...Does it force all Pokémon to evolve instantly, or does it make it so that it cannot be canceled. Perhaps it should be made clearer on the page.--Ditto51/Tom (My Talk Page) 20:53, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

It does exactly what it implies, it forces an evolution that cannot be cancelled.--ForceFire 02:06, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

Is there real evidence?

I noticed where it talked about the stream's host, it Implies the streamer as "she" but is there real evidence it's a "she"?SuperShroom63 (talk) 04:31, 27 July 2014 (UTC)

Nope. I'll edit that out now. Darrman (talk) 16:09, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

Edit Limit

Can that be hidden until it starts up again, I can't see it being edited lots before it restarts in November? I want to hide it now but feel like we should have a community vote on it (or at least get Admin/Editorial Board permission to removed it temporarily.--Ditto51/Tom (My Talk Page) 20:37, 8 August 2014 (UTC)

I was thinking of suggesting this same thing. Aside from moving everything from the last run to an X-titled subpage, all that would really be left to do on this page until the ORAS startup in November would be grammatical/formatting edits, and having a 6-hour limit for what really only boils down to something that simple seems a tad unnecessary. Obviously it would be needed to be put back when it starts up again. But that's for the board to decide, I would gather. I don't even give a Schif (TalkContribs) 18:24, 17 August 2014 (UTC)
I'm gonna have to support this too. I was just about to suggest it as well. Flarn2006 (talk) 05:35, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

Bad quality?

I don't want to remove the notice without checking first, because of the edit limit, but what about this article doesn't meet Bulbapedia's quality standards? It looks pretty good to me. AGGRON989 20:09, 19 April 2015 (UTC)

Don't see anything myself, but ask a few others first.Flanl (talk) 23:15, 19 April 2015 (UTC)
