Starting Saturday, December 29th at noon (Eastern, New Jersey time), we'll be playing Pokémon games through the new year. With three screens, we'll be able to race each version in each Generation. Plus, for a change of pace, we'll toss a bootlegged, poorly translated, semi-broken version into each race.

Don't forget to check out our gallery of photos taken of the schoolhouses we've funded over the years through the Marathons! We couldn't have done it without your amazing support!

We're raising money for Free the Children, a charity devoted to improving the lives of children in developing nations. With $ 8,500 in donations, Free the Children is able to construct a schoolhouse in a developing nation which goes a long way to improving the quality of a child's life.

Games List!

Pokémon: Green, Red and Yellow: Green is a bootlegged translation of the original Japanese version!
Pokémon: Silver, Gold and Crystal: Crystal is a foul-mouthed, poorly-translated abomination of a bootleg!
Pokémon: Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald: Emerald is the bootleg here. Left virtually unplayed, who knows what it contains?
Pokémon: Black and White: A race between the two games-- assuming the new DS capture devices work together.

Extra Goals!

If we reach $ 10,000 (or... whatever the total is post Black and White), you can keep donating to "unlock" playthroughs of some extra games.

We'll play through each game until completion or until the next game in the list is unlocked. Even if the next goal is reached, we've set aside a minimum amount of time to play the previous game before we move on.

+$ 500

Hey You Pikachu! With all the fun of (mostly broken) voice recognition!

(Minimum: Two hours of screaming at the mic)

+$ 1,000

Pokémon Master Trainer: We'll bust out the webcams to try and play through this board game!

(Minimum: At least one round of this... however you play it.)

+$ 1,500

Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen: A race (probably!) between these two remakes.

(Minimum: At least four gym badges-- a race to 50% of the Elite Four! ...Elite Two?)

+$ 3,000

Pokémon Jade (AKA Keitai Denjū Telefang): A game like Pokémon with cell phones. Have YOU had curry?

(Minimum: Three hours of garbled phone calls and awesome Game Boy music.)

+$ 5,000

Pokémon Diamond and Pearl: A race between the two DS games!

(Minimum: We'll get at least 4 gym badges before calling it quits.)

+$ 15,000

Pokéthon 1 Throwback: I'll play Pokémon, Generations one through three, back to back, nonstop, just as we did for our first Marathon back in June, 2009.

Yes, I'm serious.
