Unless you’ve been living in the largest cave on the planet for the past week, you will probably have noticed by now that Pokemon Go has taken over the world and civilisation as we know it has gone to absolute hell. Well, it’s not anarchy everywhere just yet, only just in the places that don’t have access to what has already been dubbed the most popular mobile game of all time. But we have a little cheat for y’all who don’t have it yet…
Can you remember back in February 2014 when Twitch players tried to play through the entirety of Pokemon Red using only chat commands? Well it took absolutely no time at all for them to repeat that process again – but this time with Pokemon Go! So if you’re living in a non-Pokemon ready country and don’t own a smart phone or a Twitch account, you can now solve all these problems at once by signing up to the social media platform and getting involved!

The previous Pokemon playthrough, which The Verge described as “a surprisingly insightful take on anarchy, democracy, and religious iconography” is already pegged to repeat it’s phenomenal success thanks to the current craze users are experiencing thanks to the new mobile game. In fact, Niantic, the people who made the game in coordination with The Pokemon Company, have reportedly already made $14 million in just 3 days since its US launch.
In the Twitch version of the game, players started their journey in New York Central Park and have so far caught a Pincir, a Zubat and even a Tentacool surprisingly. Hosting the game is a team of hacking professionals in New York City and a jailbroken iPhone, but they say that Niantic are “more than welcome” to ban their gamer account as long as they “understand that this is all in good fun”. Will you be dropping by to have a play?
