Twitch's next streaming marathon includes 932 episodes of 'Pokémon'

That's in addition to 16 of the movies.

Bob Ross. Julia Child. Doctor Who. Now you can add Ash Ketchum and Pikachu to the list of marathons Twitch has streamed. Starting August 27th and going all the way through 2019, Twitch will stream 16 Pokémon movies and 19 seasons of the franchise's TV shows. Next Monday starting at 10 AM Pacific the marathon begins with Pokémon: Indigo League on the TwitchPresents channel.

Now, it won't all take place starting next week. Twitch says that there will be "several" marathons total to break the movies and 932 TV episodes up a bit. There's a way to play along at home, too. It isn't quite Twitch Plays Pokémon, but thanks to how the new overlay and extension systems work, you'll be able to collect badges while watching the marathons.

Twitch promises more details are en route, but until then let's hope Mewtwo isn't nearly as elusive as it was in Pokémon Go. The full list of what seasons and movies will be broadcast reside below.
