You are here: Home » Featured » TheSpeedGamer’s – Catch ‘Em All Classic – March 11th-14th

The Pokemon “Catch ‘Em All Classic” will be TheSpeedGamer’s 22nd marathon. We will be raising money for ALSA (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) and will have a goal of $15,000. We’re dusting off our gameboys and untangling our link cables to play the original gameboy games. We will be streaming 2 games at a time along with video commentary. We strive to catch the original 251 Pokemon in under 72 hours while only allowing ourselves to play 2 games simultaneously. We will transfer all the Pokemon to one cart and auction it off to end the marathon. The event starts at 6 central and will be viewable from our website,

    This gives me an idea for a trademark. Every trailer should have something round spin into the edge of the TSG logo like the pokeball did in this video.

    • Rust says:

      It’s funny that you also had that idea. *coughmasterswordspincoughscrewattackcough*

      I guess great minds really do think alike.

      • Kairamek says:

        I was actually thinking morph ball, now I’m thinking screw attack.

        That leaves just the Star Wars marathon for a spinny thing… I know! an X-Wing doing a barrel roll!

    Nice one Rust.

  13. owl says:

    This is a great idea, but weren’t there originally 151 Pokemon?

  14. Atocha1622 says:

    I know you guys have done Pokemon like this before, but I haven’t had the pleasure to watch you guys do it. So I will be sure to see it this time around,
    and I will gladly spread the word!

    Uh what? All 251? That’s… hard? Celebi (and some other) is an EVENT Pokémon. How you will get it? =P

    • chris says:

      The original 251 didn’t include celebi or other event pokemon only up to mew which they can only get in silver,gold,crystal if hacked.
