You Can Play Pokemon Red In This Twitter User’s Profile Picture

Backseating has been taken to another level

It has been almost seven years since the fabled “TwitchPlaysPokemon” first graced the internet. An interesting social experiment that sought to test the internet’s co-operative abilities by placing inputs in a live Twitch chat and having those inputs taken and put into a game of Pokemon. Surprisingly, over the years the internet has proven that they can work together, completing over thirty different Pokemon games. Now a new challenge has arisen, only this time it’snot on Twitch, but Twitter.

Twitter user @screenshakes has now implemented their own community-played game of Pokemon Red but not as a live stream, instead as screenshots uploaded as their profile picture. As explained in their pinned tweet, anyone wanting to participate just needs to leave a comment of their desired input (Up, Down, Left, Right, A, B, Start, Select) and every fifteen seconds the most commented input is implemented into the game.

Do you think Twitter has the ability to complete the game or will they be stuck in Pallet Town talking to their Mum for eternity?
