11d 6h 57m: Red returns to Pallet Town

It’s a little late since by now we’ve already beaten the Elite Four, but I’ve been thinking a lot about Twitch Plays Pokemon since I started following the playthrough. I like to believe Red was given a Charmander as a pre-trained Pokemon to help him/his mom with some badly progressing illness while Oak helped find a cause and/or a treatment. I’d imagine it would have been hard on his mother after he disappeared on his journey, and I like to think it was a really nice moment when he returned home safe and sound before heading off to Cinnabar. Now he’s gone and done what some thought impossible—he’s become the Champion. You did it, Red. We’re all so proud of you.

I’m trying to use conductive thread just so I can say that I own wearable electronics (#CraftHipster?). I can’t think of a practical use for this stuff otherwise.
