You Can Do It!: A Beta Fish Is Playing Pokemon Right Now

August 7, 2014


I guess you could say he's BETA testing the game (come kick me in the nuts).

This is the live Twitch stream of Grayson Hopper the beta fish playing Pokemon Red/Blue by swimming around his fishbowl. He seemed to be sleeping most of the time I was watching though. Well, at least I hope he was just sleeping.

Grayson has been playing for around 135 hours. Last time I checked, Grayson had acquired his first Pokemon, a charmander named AAAABBK and defeated his first opponent, the rival's squirtle!

(Grayson has been playing since the very start and selected his own name from one of the preset ones!)

Solid work! He seems to like to hang out in the left arrow portion of his tank a lot. He just kinda chills up there. Yo know, I've actually been thinking about getting a fish tank. "What kind of fish?" Whoa, slow down -- I'm not sure I'm ready for that kind of commitment. First I'm gonna see if I can go six months without shattering the tank, THEN I'll consider adding water and a plastic skeleton pirate. "So no fish?" I have a hard time dealing with death.

Hit the jump for an embed of the live stream, or go to the website to see the stream with people's insane commentary.

Thanks to TC, who was going to let his turtle play Pokemon but was too afraid to come home to find him masturbating to Squirtle.
