  • TwitchPlaysPokémon has inspired Shipping.
  • I picked up my PMD game for the first time in a while, and this is the first mission I saw.
  • That awkward moment where TPP has a shipping war on Bulbapedia.
  • Even the game knows Helix is the answer.
  • During Anniversary Crystal, companion channel Twitch Watches Pokémon held a marathon of Pokémon movies. Because the Mob is generally portrayed as a swarm of Unown, Molly Hale is now considered a host by the official lore.
  • While not entirely absent from Season 1, glitches have been a near-constant problem for the stream since the start of Season 2, eventually leading to the arrival of "OLDEN". Only two runs in that time have had everything work perfectly smoothly: Randomized Alpha Sapphire and Randomized Platinum. (Technically, there were some minor errors in the randomizer codes for each—moves' status as Physical or Special was supposed to be randomized in the latter, yet despite sometimes claiming to have switched, every move was the exact same Damage Typing as in the vanilla game, while in the former, all legendaries were supposed to be out of bounds for random appearances, but the version used had been miscoded so Ho-Oh and Lugia were still in-bounds for random appearances—but nothing outright game-breaking, something that only Colosseum, which had plenty of glaring graphical errors, could claim.)
  • A bot named "TPPsimulator" was introduced that took random bits of chat and spat them back out into chat, similar to what happened in Chatty Yellow. The end result was the bot saying utter nonsense at best.


  • In Mother 3, an early part of the game has a tutorial on how to dash by holding the B button. The mob manages to hold the B button by spamming it, but the player character is facing the wrong direction, running all the way down the map. The mob then has to slowly walk back up to the tutorial area to give dashing another try—this time, in the right direction.
  • In the intermission between HeartGold and Black, the stream played 3DS games. Only a few minutes passed before the Mob managed to find the off switch and shut off the stream.
  • In the ORAS Demo, during the battle against the Admins, the stream ended up killing Steven's Metagross.
  • I must go... my planet needs me!
  • In the intermission before Anniversary Red, while playing Robopon in Democracy, the Mob named their character the C-word. Many tried to reset the game, some of them due to being offended, and they eventually succeeded. So the Mob proceeded to give their character the exact same name. Eventually the game was reset again, and their character was named "ANAL".
  • On April Fools' Day 2016, an Anniversary Crystal ROM was finally released...and it was exactly what you'd expect from something released on April Fools' Day.
  • On April Fools' Day 2018; they basically spent an entire game spamming nothing but rollout. And it worked. Because they were playing Katamari.
