    So, in light of the recent Japanese earthquake, my school's Pokemon Club (read: gaming addicts) is planning a catchathon.
    This means we will play every Pokemon game from R/S/E to B/W. That's 634 Pokemon minus events.
    I'm just posting here to solicit some publicity and donations... We're aiming for $2000.
    Also, I managed to get two free 3DS systems (one in each color) and one Pokemon White DSi bundle that we will be randomly giving off during the catchathon.
    Here's the Facebook event page: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=189431867764966
    I set up a (not very elaborate) site at http://www.pokemarathon.com - yes, it sucks. But I don't have the time to do anything more elaborate given that I'm handling all the tech stuff.

    So yeah. Go tell all your friends and PLEASE DONATE!!! The catchathon starts April 1 at about 1:30 pm GMT -0800.
    Remember, we will be giving away 2x 3DS systems! So come check out our 4 day stream when it airs!

    Thank you GBAtemp, and I'm sorry I wasn't more active during the past few months.

    How do you enter to win a 3DS? I am really broke so I can't really donate even if I wanted to. But I am desperate for a 3DS contest like this.


    I tried going on the ustream and watching and commenting but I'm being prevented from doing both. *ugh*

    We'll be announcing the first 3DS giveaway sometime tomorrow. Probably anywhere from 4-8pm GMT -0800 4/3/11.
    What I'll probably do is have viewers get 1 entry each and donators will get extra entries depending on their donation amount.

    I caught all pokemon in my Black/White version if that counts. I uploaded the sav to filetrip. Also as I said before I would view or go to your website but neither works for me. I really really hope you put me in the raffle. I am dirt broke. [​IMG]
