Democracy is the counterpart of Anarchy and its currently disabled until it's needed again in case of extremely difficult task.

Democracy appeared for the first time in Twitch Plays Pokémon Red Version because of the Hive Mind being unable to finish the Team Rocket HQ Maze.

History and Evolution

Democracy appeared for the first time in Twitch Plays Pokémon Red Version during day 5 (5 days, 11 hours, and 58 minutes) because of the complexity of Team Rocket HQ Maze. In the beginning, Democracy consisted of getting all the possible movements to votation.


Old democracy system

This votation period was of around 30 seconds and the winning command was the one the Hive Mind transmitted to the player. Also, to activate Democracy it was neccesary the supermajority of votes, while Anarchy only needed the majority of them. This votes for anarchy and democracy where indicated by a on-screen meter. 

Because of how this Democracy System worked, the Hive Mind had a lot of problems controlling it by having some times 50/50 opinions, changing the system from Democracy to Anarchy in the last second and viceversa. This was later solved during Twitch Plays Pokémon Crystal Version.


The Fragile Democracy

When Twitch Plays Pokémon Crystal Version started, the Democracy and Anarchy system changed. Now Democracy was only allowed every hour, having the option to disable it by just voting for anarchy and having the majority of votes for it. This had a positive and negative impact depending of the point of view. Now the Hive Mind was able to progress faster but also made Twitch Plays Pokémon more boring, getting the average online users to 10k-16k. This system was kept until Day 8.

Communism or Demonarchy

After all the DEMOCRACY a new system was implemented, being a mix between Anarchy and Democracy. It was pretty much a Democracy with just a voting time of 0.5 seconds. The system worked during all Day 8 and part of Day 9, but after having some problems (some times the old system returned) and proved that it was useless, the previous system came back until Day 13, when it was disabled once again

The Fall of Democracy

After reaching RED in Mt. Silver, Democracy system was disabled and the only way to get it back on was to call Joey. This was never accomplished and RED was defeated without it. Finally, Democracy was disabled during Twitch Plays Pokémon Emerald Version and will only come back if it's neccesary. 


  • Democracy appeared for the first time when Eevee evolved into Flareon, this is why it is used to represent Democracy.
  • Flareon is hated because it is his fault that Abby and Jay Leno were realesed and Democracy is hated because it takes the fun away. Making both of them something bad for the health of Twitch Plays Pokémon and followers of the Dome Fossil.
