Pokemon fans better get ready to tune into
from Monday, when a marathon of the long-running show and its movies begins.
The stream will begin with the first season -- Indigo League -- at 10 a.m. PT (1 p.m. ET/6 p.m. GMT/4 a.m. Tuesday AST) and run through 19 seasons of the show and 16 movies for viewers in the US, Canada, Latin America, Europe and Australia.
Twitch account holders will also have a Pokemon Badge Collector Extensions overlay accompanying the stream, allowing you to virtually collect badges that appear on-screen. Each one will earn you points and you'll be placed on a leaderboard, so you can prove that you're the ultimate Pokemon watcher.
This isn't the first TV marathon Twitch has streamed, having shown Korean dramas throughout August and previously hosted streams of Doctor Who, Saturday Night Live and Power Rangers.
However, the Pokemon one will eclipse all the other to become the single longest programmatic viewing event Twitch has streamed.
The Pokemon show began in 1997 in Japan, arrived in the US in 1998 and is still going on today. The most recent two seasons, which are based on the Sun and Moon games, aren't part of the steam, nor are the last two movies (I Choose You and The Power of Us).
The event, which is designed for fans aged 13 and up, continues into 2019.
"The Twitch community has a passion for Pokemon based on the warm embrace the series received when we celebrated the brand's 20th anniversary, as well as the cultural milestone that was set when over a hundred thousand Twitch members played Pokemon together," said Jane Weedon, Twitch's director of business development.
Pikachu didn't return a request for comment, but we're confident he would've said "Pika-Pi."
