The world record holder for longest consecutive Pokemon gameplay might just be a fish. Grayson Hopper, a bright orange betta, has been "playing" the game for 135 hours and counting, with the event broadcast live on the internet from a "tiny dorm room." Before you get too excited, the aquatic creature's owner mapped out a video feed of an otherwise ordinary bowl, and, to the best of our knowledge, Grayson's entirely unaware that he's become the latest Twitch sensation. As of the last update, the fish had defeated his first opponent and even managed to acquire a Pokemon. Mr. Hopper has paused to rest throughout the experiment, so he should be in good shape to continue until his owner relocates the rig later this summer.
