What is the Pokemon Community Game on Twitch?

Pokemon Community Game is a free-to-play extension for Twitch. Any streamer that adds this extension to their stream can have their chat catch, trade, and battle their favorite pokemon. It’s basically a way to play a Pokemon game among yourselves while you watch a stream.

How Does it Work?

how to play pokemon community game

Basically, viewers can type commands in chat and play the Pokemon Community Game. Through these commands, you can catch Pokemon, see your balance, buy items and even battle Pokemon.


Once you land up on a stream, you need to type !Pokestart which will give you a starter Pokémon. When a Pokemon spawns in the chat (which happens every 15 minutes), you need to use the !Pokecatch command to catch it. If you don’t have Pokeballs, you can use !Pokeshop <item name> <quantity> to buy it. A pokeball costs $300, a greatball costs $600 and an ultraball costs $1000.
