Speed ​​runs, record sales, trading cards and pets playing. We introduce you to the most incredible Pokémon records.
Since the Game Boy debut in 1996, the pocket monsters Pokémon have become an integral part of the gaming world. To this day, the adventures are among the most popular games across all genres and are an integral part of pop culture worldwide. No wonder the series has broken some impressive records over the years.

1,165 million participants in the largest online playthrough of a single player game

In February 2014, the live stream platform Twitch started a social experiment under the name "Twitch Plays Pokémon". Using the chat function, participants from all over the world can enter key commands that a bot implements in Pokémon games.
It didn't take long for this to develop into a worldwide phenomenon: after 16 days, 7 hours and 45 minutes, the community completed the first game in the series, Pokémon Red Edition, together.
But not without first securing a world record. With an unbelievable 1,165,140 participants, the experiment holds the world record for "most participants in a single-player online video game". Incredible.

5 minutes and 04 seconds - the fastest speedrun in Pokémon Crystal

It usually takes around 30 hours to complete the main story of the Game Boy Color offshoot Pokémon Crystal. With all the secondary tasks, you can easily add another 25 hours of playing time.
The US speedrunner "entrpntr" only needed just under five minutes to set his record! In 5 minutes and 04 seconds, the player completed his Any% run, i.e. the fastest speed run category, and literally pulverized the previous record of 11:15 minutes.

Around 300,000 euros - the most expensive Pokémon trading card is worth

They were the highlights of our heated schoolyard duels: the Pokémon trading cards. The gameplay is strongly reminiscent of the TCG classic Magic: The Gathering, only with all sorts of colorful pocket monsters.
We don't even want to imagine how much pocket money we've invested in new cards over the years, but it could have been significantly more:
The equivalent of around 300,000 euros went over the counter at an online auction for the Turtok prototype card, which was printed before the final design of the cards. The card shows the water Pokémon, as can be seen on the cover of the GB classic Pokémon: Blue Edition and never made it into the finished trading card game.

368 million - The combined number of Pokémon games sold

The pocket monsters were able to secure an unbelievable lead, because in second place follows the Final Fantasy series with a combined 159 million units sold.
