Usually, parks are an ideal place to kickback, and nowadays maybe even catch some rare Pokémon; but thus was not the case for Summit1g, a Twitch streamer with 86 million views. The poor guy was literally mid-stream, playing Pokémon GO in this video, when all of a sudden you see the police show up, guns pointing at him, because one of his viewers prank called in on him. 

I mean come on dude...According to KKTV, the police were alerted that a man in the park had an 'AK-47 or AR' and that he'd 'planted remote bombs in the park, and wanted to kill cops.

“I offered to give [officers] a little information about what was happening because I kind of knew, considering it happens to other streamers all the time but more in their homes. You get someone’s address and you swat them. I never thought it would happen in a park,” Lazar told KKTV.

Fortunately, everything worked out, and Summit1G was able to explain to the police what was going on. Some final parting words of wisdom regarding all the madness from the man himself:

"It's always got to be some type of dickbag on Twitch," Summit1g said. "Literally all they're doing is making cops waste their resources, and putting people in danger...that guy was pulling an M16 [rifle] out of his trunk...and I still got the f**king Charmander, bitch."

Against all odds, Twitch Plays Pokémon has actually managed to catch Mewtwo, completing their Pokédex and finishing their modified version of Pokémon Red. In order to beat the game, they had to complete more difficult battles and catch all 151 Pokémon (the modification made it possible to encounter all 151, removing the necessity of trading). It took nearly 39 days in total, which is significantly longer than every other TPP game has lasted:

It is one whole year since Twitch Plays Pokemon first started, in celebration Twitch Plays Pokemon will be doing another run of Pokemon Red, this time to complete the Pokedex.

An improved anarchy mode system will be used for the majority of the run. In the few sections where democracy mode might be required a 24 hour countdown timer will be elapsed before democracy mode is enabled, the timer is location specific and will pause if the player leaves the area.

A custom romhack is being used that allows all 151 Pokemon to be captured.

Pokemon Battle Revolution is temporarily suspended during the run of Pokemon Red and will return after the run has concluded.
