** Similarly, the sheer amount of menus makes trying to navigate through them in anarchy incredibly difficult. Just trying to buy Pokeballs is a nightmare because the only place that sells them also sells status healing items first and foremost. Even though the Colosseums provide a stable way to grind and make money, [[RichInDollarsPoorInSense every time the mob has attempted to buy Pokeballs so far, they wasted their money by accidentally buying vast amounts of awakenings and antidotes instead.]] This has made team building difficult, to say the least.

'''''Twitch Plays Pokemon Colosseum''''', the fourth run of "Season 2", takes the mob to the desert region of Orre. Where Teams Cipher and Snagem are stealing Pokemon and closing their hearts, creating dangerous new Shadow Pokemon. With new challenges like perpetual Double Battling, saving at the dreaded [[HeroKiller PC]], and capturing Shadow Pokemon it's sure to be the most chaotic and challenging run since ''[[LetsPlay/TwitchPlaysPokemonRedAnniversary Red Anniversary]]''.

* ContinuingIsPainful: In order to checkpoint, the mob ''has'' to check in at [[TheDreaded the PC]]. Since [[{{Understatement}} the mob isn't too happy with that idea]], they only checkpoint after story events and accidental PC usage. This means they often end up teleported a good distance away from where they once were and, thanks to Orre's map system, can take them anywhere from an hour to an ''entire day'' to get back to where they once were.
* DarkerAndEdgier: The game itself, even by ''TwitchPlaysPokemon'' standards, is darker and edgier. With a protagonist who's a former villain that goes through a HeelFaceTurn and decides to continue stealing Pokemon, but [[JustLikeRobinHood only from the bad guys]].

* CoincidentalBroadcast: Like other televisions in previous runs, the mob tend to hear what the television has to say. Unlike the other TVs, ''Colosseum'' only plays the same currently available news report that AAAAAAA is being part of. The mob spammed the TV ''1000 times'' throughout the run, most of them intentional.

Unlike the other TVs, [=TVs=], where each TV session has various shows to listen to, ''Colosseum'' only plays the same currently available news report that AAAAAAA is being part of. The mob spammed the TV ''1000 times'' throughout the run, most of them intentional.



* DummiedOut: A day before this run began, the mob played around ''Pokemon Channel''. A notable thing of the intermission was the streamer's ability to turn Democracy Mode on and off by input through the chat rather than putting the stream offline for a couple of seconds. Since ''Colosseum'' was beaten without Democracy Mode, this input setup went unused for the run.



** ''Colosseum'''s gameplay is purely made out of Double Battles, which the chat is generally known to rarely finish one without hurting their team members first. Saving/checkpoints in this game is done by using the [[TheDreaded PC]], a device that most people are scared of using it because of accidental releases and party switching. Whiting out promptly boots AAAAAAA face-first to a PC.

* SpecialEffectFailure: [[invoked]] Because of the program the streamer uses to run the game, the graphics tend to black out some of the textures of the Pokemon or scenery.

Added DiffLines:

* DarkAndTroubledPast: Thanks to this game being on the higher end of StoryToGameplayRatio, most of the lore involved the protagonist and the world's backstory this run, which primarially focused on how Orre became a PostApocalyptic wasteland and how A7 turned to a life of crime.


The lore of this run focuses on [=A7=], a teen who was originally part of the ''VideoGame/PokemonChannel'' project and now trying to survive in the savage wasteland that is Orre after a NuclearApocolypse. Having lost his childhood companion Pikachu to his own stupid mistake, he was forced to join Team Snagem to survive. After finally having enough, he defects and steals the Team's prototype Snag Machine. His motives unclear, it is at that faithful day he meets a kidnapped girl named Rui...
