The announcement says, “Gotta Catch ‘Em All! they said. So we did. 19 seasons & 16 movie parties worth of ’em”
“Our upcoming Pokémon: The Series viewing event — which is in partnership with The Pokémon Company International — marks our most ambitious block of animated to date in terms of duration content,” Jane Weedon, director of business development at Twitch, said about the big event (Polygon).
They will be showing 19 out of a current count of 20 seasons of Pokémon. The coolest part is that you will get to actually catch Pokemon throughout the event!
