Twitch to Stream Pokémon Series and Movies Starting Next Week

Twitch is partnering with The Pokémon Company for Pokémon: The Series extravaganza. Twitch will stream 932 episodes of the Pokémon anime and 16 movies, spanning from Pokémon: The First Movie all the way to Volcanion and the Mechanical Marvel.

All of the Pokémon festivities will begin Aug. 27 starting at 1 p.m. EDT on the Twitch Presents channel for audiences in the U.S., Canada, Europe, Latin America, and Australia. The marathon will be streamed in French, Portuguese, Spanish, Italian and German.

Viewers with a Twitch account can also participate using an exclusive extension called Pokémon Badge Collector. This extension encourages viewers to "collect" Pokémon badges that appear on-screen for points that place them on a leaderboard.

"The Twitch community has a passion for Pokémon 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 Pokémon together," said Jane Weedon, director of business development at Twitch in a press release. "To continue to support this beloved property, our upcoming Pokémon: The Series viewing event—which is in partnership with The Pokémon Company International—marks our most ambitious block of animated programming to date in terms of duration and content. Making it even more special, an overlay created using our exclusive Extensions product will let viewers collect Pokémon when they appear on-screen for the ultimate interactive viewing experience."
