Twitch Plays Pokémon’s Most Interesting Development

In Twitch Plays Pokémon Crystal, Red has a very different team to the one he’s supposed to.

When you play Pokémon Gold, Silver, or Crystal and face off against Red on the summit of Mount Silver he’s supposed to have a team of a Pikachu, an Espeon, a Snorlax, a Venusaur, a Charizard, and a Blastoise. Except in Twitch Plays Pokémon’s case, that isn’t Red’s team, this is:

Pokemon Twitch Team

You might recognise this as the team used by Twitch Plays Pokémon players when they tackled the original game which has been confirmed to be Pokémon Red in this interview. This means whoever’s set up the stream changed the game in order for this to happen and, what’s more, when Red was encountered for the first time, Twitch users couldn’t beat his team.
