I think what twitch plays pokemon needs is...

....a rival! Someone who can stir us up and make us feel invincible. The thrill is irresistible. But in all seriousness I do think some for of twitch vs twitch would prevent things from getting boring. I mean lot's of peeps are already losing interest (including me a wee bit). Some way to make it more than just the same thing with each gen would be cool and I think fighting some thing like us would go a long way . Here are a couple ideas.

Twitch vs Shadow twitch

A opponent will be controlled by twitch well every other command. Admittedly this a really stupid idea because this would be easy as fuck or take a long time but, if he was beefed up or better yet a straight up clone it would hype.

Twitch A vs Twitch 1

There would be someway to divide up the community and have two games go on one stream: a race. The teams would have to be on one stream to prevent sabotage. The problem would be having the teams of equal size I.E. a fair game. I suppose there could be an algorithm that determines which team you're on but that would take a genius to be near half and the slight difference would potential ruin the game. Another idea is to have everyone currently on screen user have a value and on depending on which side of all the people would determine your current team. But that would probably take a lot of data and people will get mad about switching teams so much if they had mid level values. What's worth is the thought of people figuring out the algorithm and the trolling they will do with it.

All I know going in if given enough time (and democracy) we can do anything. So having a real rival seems alluring right now. I don't know...

    There are and have been a lot of knock-offs. No one cares about them because they are knock-offs.

    That's not what I meant by rival. Blue and such don't count. I mean an actual legit battle between the stream and itself.
