Pokemon: Speed Gamers Going for CharityNovember 12, 2008
Speed Gamers- a charity/ fun raisers that play for marathon hours to raise money to give to charities- has tried to complete the whole Pokemon Dex. In one game. Without cheats Arceus and Shaymin were never shown, so those two pokemon will not count in this marathon. The Speed Gamers have announced they will attempt to capture every Pokémon available in North America during 72 straight hours beginning 5 p.m. CST Dec. 19. The gamers will donate proceeds raised during the fundraiser to ACT Today, a nonprofit supporter of people affected by autism.
491 pokemon to catch (Shaymin and Arceus excluded).. That is alot!
To reach the goal, the gamers said they will begin new files of Pokémon FireRed, LeafGreen, Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Diamond, Pearl, XD: Gale of Darkness, Colosseum and its bonus discs, Pokémon Ranger and My Pokémon Ranch. The Pokémon then will be transferred to a single game cartridge to complete the National Dex.
During the marathon, the group’s blog will host a live Web cast of two games being played at a time. This blog will also host a checklist of how many Pokémon the gamers have caught.
