Online live-streaming site Twitch is set to launch a gargantuan Pokemon marathon in late August that will last through to the beginning of next year, airing the first 932 episodes of the anime series and 16 of its films.

It will be Twitch’s longest TV streaming marathon to date, following its Doctor Who stream earlier this year.

The livestream will begin at 6pm BST on Monday 27th August with the first season, Pokemon: Indigo League, on the TwitchPresents channel, and run through to 2019, with episodes airing eight hours a day from Monday to Friday. Saturdays will be reserved for re-runs, and movies will air on Sundays from 6pm.

In addition, a Twitch extension will allow viewers to collect Pokemon badges throughout the broadcast, adding a further interactive element.

Twitch marathons are becoming something of a cult phenomenon. The last time the service streamed Pokemon – for only 24 hours – over 50,000 viewers tuned in at the same time, conversing via the Twitch chat while enjoying classic episodes. Communal event programming, it would seem, is not dead yet.
