'Pokemon' to Host Massive 900+ Episode Twitch Marathon

It looks like Twitch is really ready to catch ‘em all — or, in this case, watch ‘em all with its biggest marathon yet. Soon, the service will kick off a massive Pokémon event, and it will keep fans occupied for quite some time.

Today, Twitch confirmed its most ambitious marathon plans yet. This month, the site will begin a huge Pokemon anime marathon that will last through 2019. As it stands, the marathon will feature 19 TV seasons as well as 16 films, so fans better get comfy, considering the marathon will feature a whopping 932 episodes.

According to Twitch, the marathon will be an interactive one for fans. The streaming service will host an overlay that fans will be able to virtually collect Pokémon badges through. The extension will be made public, allowing marathon viewers to compete and show who is the true Pokémon Marathon Master.

“Our upcoming Pokémon: The Series viewing event — which is in partnership with The Pokémon Company International — marks our most ambitious block of animated to date in terms of duration content,” Jane Weedon, director of business development at Twitch, said about the big event (via Polygon).

Right now, the marathon is set to kick off with season one on Aug. 27 at 1 p.m. ET. Pokémon: Indigo League will play entirely before Twitch moves on to season two.
