I went to bed thinking 'There's no way this could get any more convoluted' and then there's the Anarchy/Democracy system. Oh lord.
Or as the Twitch plays Pokemon plays Tetris caster calls it, the whine-o-metertm

That does seem to be what it has become, though I (somehow) see it as the repeated rise and subsequent collapse of civilization from anarchy/a war waged between those who wish to advance and those who wish to destroy.

"RATATTA USES THUNDERBOLT."

There's more than one electric mouse in this game?

Jay Leno has Bubblebeam too, AFAIK. Somehow they have 3 elements on 2 Rattatas.

It seems to me that when traveling, Democracy gets a lot more done, while battles are far more efficient when in Anarchy mode.

I don't care about whats going on in the stream right now, we've succeeded in doing something awesome. According to the live reddit feed:

I think when the whole dota 2 competing for being the number one stream...no one expected the original pokemon game to reach there.

Am I the only thats bothered impressed by how sufficiently this sums up human nature. You have religions, factions, organized governments vs anarchy etc.  It certainly is an interesting social experiment.

Also, glad to hear Flareon got boxed.

I'm thinking this is the most successful social experient on the internet, ever. Imagine all the different angles you could study this from; tenacity of groups; tenacity of people who want things to fail out of spite; how introducing another method of 'doing things' will invariably create schisms; religious overtones.. It's literally got every aspect of the human condition in one massive clusterfuck.

This is quite literally the best news I've received all month.

That sums up my observation about this too. I remarked about it in one of the streams (I think the Tetris one). Maybe not in this level of detail, but I did at least mention the Social Psychology bit, or what could be observed from it, more or less.

Oh, and PRAISE THE ALMIGHTY HELIX FOSSIL!!!! But not as much as the Blood God Armok.

EDIT:
Oh my goodness. Catching up on what has happened so far, I am so glad I caught this event. This is one of the most bizarre things to happen recently. It does make me question quite a few things. I mean, I have God theories, theories about what IS reality (this is like something that would happen on a sitcom, and not reality. Life Imitates Art, indeed.), and so on. I think existence will eventually reach a limit where God will just have to hit the power button for once, and give all matter a rest, until he comes back in a few hours His Time, not Our Time (maybe another few eternities).

EDIT EDIT:
After having fallen into the black hole of TVTropes, I return with an interesting link related to Life Imitates Art. Could be an interesting topic for GD. Science Fiction becoming fact.

Why is my brain imagining Cacame, Tholtig, Morul, Captain Ironblood, and Asax facing off against "Abby", "Jay Leno", "Bird Jesus", "The Keeper", and "The False Prophet" with the silhouettes of Armok and the Helix fossil in the background...
