Approximately 30,000 poke-trainers showed up for the start of the Hoenn region adventure, which has the added feature of a display that shows the party's current pokemon. It's okay everyone, we don't need to press start to see who's in the party now and listen to Bulbasaur's cry for 15 minutes!

The first TPP playthrough brought us gods (http://www.joystiq.com/2014/02/22/twitch-plays-pokemon-its-history-highlights-and-bird-jesus/) and religions, the second gave us a battle (http://www.joystiq.com/2014/03/15/twitch-plays-pokemon-given-deadline-to-beat-their-former-god/) against those same deified creatures. The third playthrough's running meme thus far seems to be that the player character, a female avatar named "A" (short for "Anarchy"), is a psychopathic murderer. Because sure, why not.
