Actually it got as low as 14K, after the first wipe out on VR and the grind on pokemon mansion. 

But I agree, it isn't having the same following as Red/Blue. A lot of it's magic hasn't been captured yet, there's no lord helix this time around

Yeah, nicknames feel forced and there's a lack of general hilarity here. Not unexpected ofcourse, but still...



 

Here lies the dearly departed Nintendomination Thread.

They should do a " Twitch Plays Final Fantasy VI".  Insanity is  guaranteed no matter how much they change the rules or whatever.

The problem isn't because there is a lack of originality or there isn't some sort of deity to follow. The problem is Gen 2 is too damn easy. The game's difficulty is scaled considerably since there are 16 badges this time and Feraligatr is more than enough to cruise through the game without much sweat. And this isn't Feraligatr's fault for making this too easy, it's the damn game. We had an overleveled Bird Jesus for much of Gen 1 and we still struggled. Not even the Elite 4 will pose much of a threat, with levels ranging from 40-50. Only Red is a threat, with his 70+ pokemon. Go back and try playing Gen 2, the scaling is really weird.

If we were actually struggling to do simple things like beat gym leaders, then much of the magic would create itself. The lore and narrative for Gen 1 were easier to create because it was so novel at the time. But now we already know what types of challenges lie ahead because we've already faced them before. I don't blame the community for having a harder time coming up with a narrative, since we were on our first run just a few days ago. It's hard to do so without recollecting our fond memories of the magical Gen 1 run. Even so, this run would be much better off if the game was scaled more accordingly.

I'm not sure releasing Feraligatr will make this any better. It might for the short term but in the end, the game is still a cakewalk compared to what Gen 1 was.

16 badges!

So they at Mt. Silver trying to navigate without flash.

Even then Red's team is gonna wipe the floor with what they currently got.

Looks like Red has the previous Twitch Team.

Archangel Zapados proceeds to wreck Feraligator and Pidgeot.

Yeah they are not beating this anytime soon.

O.o I'm still amazed at their pace, can't believe how much they've achieved.



Indeed, Johto went by quite quickly.
