Back in February, thousands of Twitch users came together to watch and play a game of Pokémon by inputting game commands via the live video streaming service's chat box.

The crowd-sourced massively multiplayer online co-op version of Pokémon Red/Blue for Game Boy was an online phenomenon, drawing thousands of viewers within a day of its launch. Today at the Penny Arcade Expo in Seattle, researcher and data scientist Alex Leavitt released numbers that revealed just how popular it was.
