After 377.5 hours, Twitch Plays Pokemon finally got through Victory Road and entered into the Elite 4 tournament of pain. What many feared would take months of work and struggle took a mere two weeks (which is still a pretty insane amount of time). The stream had over 30 MILLION views, with over 70,000 people watching.
The team fell to the ice-trainer (Lorelai) three times. But on the 4th attempt, they defeated her.
The team defeated the fighting-trainer (Bruno) the first try.
The team fell to the ghost-trainer (Agatha) the first try, but came back quickly and took her down for some swift vengeance.
The dragon-trainer (Lance) fought long and hard, but ultimately his Dragonite fell to the All-Terrain Venomoth (thanks to some well-timed poisoning).
The first attempt at the final battle with Blue was next. Of course, all that was left of the team was the All-Terrain Venomoth, who fell almost immediately to Blue's Anti-Abba-Jesus Pidgeot.
But Red and the players persisted, re-challenging the Elite 4, gaining levels, and slowly getting closer to their goal.
But...now what? According to the 24-hour countdown in the Twitch chat, "a new adventure will begin" pretty soon. Odds are, this is Twitch Plays Pokemon Gold/Silver. As someone who's been following this and updating for over two weeks now, let me just say DEAR GOD NO. GIVE US A WEEK'S BREAK, PLEASE.
