TwitchPlaysPokemon - Teh SELECT Sect by MadHatter-Himself TwitchPlaysPokemon - Teh SELECT Sect by MadHatter-Himself
At the very beginning of the TwitchPlaysPokémon; Touhoumon & Moemon Duel-Playthroughs, the difference between the events were chaotic at all times, resulting in the playthroughs having little in common at all.
However, a profound sense of "Unity" could be achieved from pressing the [SELECT]-Button, it being pressed resulting in both Player-Character stopping dead in their tracks and standing for a few seconds in complete silence, before the madness again unfolds and the playthroughs change their paths.

This resulted in myself and others starting to present the act of pressing the [SELECT]-Button as a religious ritual, with the purpose of halting progress for the sake of silent contemplation and togetherness.

I fail to see how this is "unity," except that everyone else I've seen seems to be united in believing that the whole thing is obnoxious.

And our "togetherness" is hardly silent, as we've been complaining about the whole thing for quite a long time. Especially when Teachy TV and Poke Dude came up and things got really, REALLY obnoxious.

Please, please stop halting progress.

It seems you've caught on to one of the details regarding why I personally found the SELECT Sect so interesting.

The definition of the word "Sect" is at its core, simply a (typically) religious group that broke off from another.
However, when using the word sect, it is often implied that the reason behind this split, is for the purpose of becoming a more radical group then the original,
sometimes it even implies the radicalization is going in a sinister direction.

This is part of how I personally view the SELECT Sect,
as an insane cult who undermines everyone else through their believes.
They do it because of something they believe is the "Right way" of doing things, and that it will benefit everyone eventually.
Even if it goes against the wishes of others.

Really, I figured that the term "select sect" is just because the two words sound similar.

And because "select master race" was, well, racist.

Well, "Select Sect" is the name indeed because the words sound similar, making it more appealing as a name.

So there is a use for Unown apart from spelling rude words in your boxes...
