The Goofy Religions Of 'Twitch Plays Pokémon,' Explained

The cult of the Helix fossil/Omanyte is not the only 'religion' that's formed around the events of Twitch Plays Pokemon, you know. This makes sense: a random group of thousands of people aren't necessarily all going to believe in the same thing.

Plus, the mythology surrounding the Helix fossil itself is a complicated beauty/mess — there are many players and villains. Reddit user aseanman27 made a handy image that not only details all the various 'beliefs' around Twitch Plays Pokémon, but also outlines some of the major events and common occurrences in the playthrough. It's worth a look, both if you've been keeping up with the progression Twitch Plays Pokémon, or if you're curious about some of the ridiculous memes that have developed around it.

    Man, this whole TPP thing has been a guilty pleasure of mine for the past couple of weeks. The in jokes, the content and the story has me totally engrossed for no reason that I can explain to anyone else.

      I like everything around it but the actual stream is REALLY boring.

    I don't see enough about the false prophet, the 12 sacrifices needed to bring back our lord (& our saviour) or the fact that the dome's minions (Giovanni) could not stand against Bird Jesus and his brilliance.

    A brilliant and unexpected masterclass in religion. This is going to make the news and possibly school textbooks someday (well I guess not since it exposes religion in general as a fraud)

    Received a helix symbol from an unknown source in my office mailbox yesterday, which prompted some googling and led me to discover this very helpful guide. Apparently the Church of Helix is eager for more followers...
