TwitchPlaysPokemon wasn’t enough. Animals are now involved.


FishPlaysPokemon is a real thing. The fish in question, Grayson Hopper, can “press” the game’s buttons by swimming around this tank. You can watch live. Grayson doesn’t move very much.

He’s playing Pokemon Red at the moment. He’s been playing for 125 hours. He’s won a single Pokemon.

This is sure to be the first of many copycats of TwitchPlaysPokemon, the social phenomenon that allowed Twitch users to enter screen co-ordinates by text to play through every Pokemon game ever.

Mornings like this make me glad to be alive. What’s next? PersonPlaysPokemon? The mind boggles.
