Lets Play / Twitch Plays Pokémon Brown

Go To

Twitch Plays Pokémon (TPP) is a social experiment in which commands representing buttons on an original Game Boy (up, down, left, right, A, B, start, and select) are entered into a chat on Twitch, and then translated into a romhack of Pokémon Red via an IRC bot. In short, over 10,000 people are fighting over a controller. Throughout its life, Twitch Plays Pokémon has spawned hilarious characters, memorable moments, and even a religion.


Twitch Plays Pokémon Brown, the second run of "Season 3", takes the mob to the region of Rijon, to the south of Johto. Brown is an extremely popular romhack of the Generation 1 games, and features an original plotline, new characters, locations and typesets, as well as a number of Pokémon brought in from later generations.

For tropes related to the romhack itself and not this run, see Pokémon Brown and Prism.
