Reddit Plays Pokemon Is Our New Gaming Obsession

The Pokémon Company

One Reddit user has handed Pokemon fans the Game Boy Advance and given them the power to choose their fate in an ambitious playthrough of Pokemon Emerald. For anyone who has ever taken part in Twitch Plays Pokemon, it's much the same - but for a new-gen audience.

In the post, Reddit users have been encouraged to choose the players' decisions via commenting on the post. Creator, u/redredspots has explained that the top comment by Pokemon fans will influence which decision is next in our journey across the Hoenn Region.

The playthrough may only be on day one, as of writing, but that hasn't stopped a heap of excitement from Pokemon fans. The OP has already received nearly 700 comments from fans keen to choose what's next for the player.

How Can Reddit Play Pokémon?

The challenge is simple enough. Basically, Reddit users comment on the post each day and the top comment, or the most popular choice, is what redredspot will choose to do next in their playthrough of Pokemon Emerald. For example, the first decision in the game is to choose whether or not to make the playable character a boy or a girl. 

2004's Pokémon Emerald may seem a bit of a retro choice given the wealth of games that have been released since Red and Blue first came out. However, Pokemon players have proven that their love for these classic games is as strong as ever. For example, fans who are craving a bit of Game Boy nostalgia can get their very own retro Pokemon tattoos. Not to mention, there was the Fortnite player who used Pokemon Emerald graphics to recreate the Season 5 map

Reddit Plays Pokemon: Fans React

 

 

Fans on the post seem fairly mixed about which choice the player should make. Whereas some fans wanted the player to choose 'Boy', one fan who wanted the player to choose 'Girl' said: "I think the girl’s character just always has a better outfit. For example the white/red cap in HGSS looks so fresh". 

The results haven't been revealed yet, but that hasn't stopped fans from sharing their opinions about the playthrough. One fan noted that the sheer number of decisions throughout the playthrough of Pokemon Emerald means we'll be here a while: "God if we do this for each individual move we're gonna be here for the next ten years."

One thing's for sure, we are going to be keeping an eye out on this discussion to find out what exactly the Redditverse decides to do next in the playthrough. However, Pokemon fans who don't spend much time on Reddit can find comfort in their own real-life adorable little monsters as Pokemon is rewarding players who share pictures of their cute pets
