Pokémon Marathon Details!

The Pokémon Mararthon is getting very close and we have a lot of details, challenges and exciting news! Our event will begin on Friday June 20th at 6pm central US and will last 168 hours continuously, ending on Friday June 27th. The entire marathon will be live streamed on TSG.tv. You can watch us catch all of the Pokemon live and chat with us as we play. We will be raising money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital as we try to catch em’ all!

On the promotion front, we will be receiving a huge boost. In no particular order, the following sites have agreed to partner/promote us during our marathon; Bulbapedia, Serebii, and Marriland. Also, we will have a special guest from Pocketmonsters.net join us for a commentary shift. We are still seeking out new partners to help promote us for the event. Any promotion that we can receive will be greatly appreciated. If you would like to get in contact with us, please email press@thespeedgamers.com .

We also have a great set of prizes and auction items. The English translator of the Pokemon series (Gen 1-4), Nob Ogasawara, has sent us a signed Silver Gameboy pocket that he used to translate Pokemon red, Blue and Yellow, signed boxed copies of Red and Blue (donated by Kairamek), signed playing cards and stickers.

We have decided to do 5 cut-throat auctions spread throughout the week. The first auction will be our marathon banner. It will be auctioned on Friday June 20th @ 8pm central. 2nd auction Signed copy of Pokémon Blue on Saturday June 21 @ 7pm. 3rd auction Signed copy Pokémon Red on Sunday June 22 @ 7pm. 4th auction 2 sets of signed Pokémon playing cards and stickers on Wednesday June 25th @7pm central. To conclude our marathon we will auction off the signed Gameboy Pocket on Friday June 27th @ 5pm central.

Prizes will be given away throughout the marathon for chat participation, promotion, fan art and other activities. We have a variety of prizes such as Ash hats, Pokemon games, toys, coasters cards, T-shirts and more! I will be doing a detailed video log of our prizes soon on Youtube.com/thespeedgamers .

Our biggest week long event was the Pokémon marathon in June 2012 , which we raised approximately $60,000. We narrowly caught them all and now we have the added challenge of even more Pokémon. We want this event to be our biggest both in terms of fundraising and challenge. During our past Pokémon marathons our goal was to simply catch them all and complete the Pokedex, but for this event we would like to try the “living Pokedex” challenge. Here’s the definition from the Bulbapedia page; living Pokédex is a fan term for a game which not only has a complete Pokédex, but has one of every available species of Pokémon stored in its PC boxes as well, usually in their National Pokédex order. It follows the most literal interpretation of the slogan of the series, “Gotta catch ’em all!“.”

We are going to set 6 stretch goals for each generation of Pokémon. Every time we meet a stretch goal, we will complete that generation’s “living Pokedex”. Stretch goal Gen #1 will be at $20,000, Gen #2 $30,000, Gen #3 $40,000, Gen #4 $50,000, Gen #5 $60,000, Gen #6 $70,000.

We will open donations soon so that viewers can lay claim to Pokémon names. Non Legendary Pokemon will be $20 each. Legendary Pokemon names will be auctioned about 30 minutes prior to them being caught and starters will cost $50. It will be first come first serve and there will be a system in place where you can check to see if the Pokemon is available to name. More details will be available soon on TSG.TV.

We hope that with these added challenges, great partners and prizes that we can make this our biggest week long event.

Thank you!
