Twitch catches Pokemon for charity

Registering for the event is easy and requires a few simple steps. Entrants must register with CatchAMillion. This helps contribute to the goal of catching a million Pokemon. All Twitch streamers can participate, and any Pokémon game is welcome.

Throughout the event, CatchAMillion will post live updates featuring the latest catch data and fundraising updates. Streamers who are live on Twitch with the built-in tracker will see their capture account go towards the one million Pokémon goal.

Additionally, fundraising vanguard TwitchPlaysPokémon will host a Pokémon Red and Blue face-off. Pokémon Red and Blue being the original Pokémon games to be released on the Nintendo Game Boy. Team captains Bruce Greene and KaraCorvus will be the key players in the 24/7 event.

The two will compete to complete as much Pokémon content as possible while using the “Twitch Plays” chat-based game format. This means that viewers watching the stream will be able to control the action that takes place on the stream. Additionally, all viewers are encouraged to enter the Twitch Plays Race to support their favorite streamers.

Help those in need

Peter, 15, is the honored child of this event. Peter underwent chemotherapy treatment for osteosarcoma during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. Suffering from a weakened immune system and spending days in hospital, Peter was unable to connect with his friends in person . Video games were a much-needed distraction from battling childhood cancer while also giving Peter a way to hang out with his friends.

Join Peter, Bruce Greene, KaraCorvus and many other Twitch streamers this week as they strive to catch a million Pokemon and raise $100,000 for St. Baldrick’s Foundation.
