So what is this game, and how does it work? According to its official website, any streamer can add the extension to their stream, and their chat will become a virtual playground for Pokémon fans. Viewers can interact with the game by typing commands in chat, such as "!Pokecatch" to catch a Pokémon or "!Pokeshop" to buy items like Poké balls and Great balls. It's important to note that this bot does not override banned words, so be aware of what you say.

How do you use the Pokémon Community Game?

To start playing the Pokémon Community Game, you need to type the command !Pokestart in the chat of a live stream that is hosting the game. This command will give you a starter Pokémon that you can use to begin your journey.

Every 15 minutes, a Pokémon will appear in the chat for players to catch. To catch a Pokémon, you need to type the command !Pokecatch followed by the name of the Pokémon that you want to catch. For example, if a Pikachu appears in the chat, you would type !Pokecatch Pikachu.

If you don’t have any Poké balls, you can buy them from the in-game shop using the command !Pokeshop. A regular Poké ball costs $300, a Great ball costs $600, and an Ultra ball costs $1000. You can buy these items using the command !Pokeshop followed by the name of the item and the quantity that you want to purchase. For example, if you want to buy 5 Poké balls, you would type !Pokeshop Pokeball 5.
