Today marks the commencement of an awesome event in support of the British Red Cross: Full Restore are a group of video creating, gaming enthusiasts who run an annual Pokémon livestream to benefit the charity, a marathon lasting 100 hours and suitable for all ages!
Start time: Friday, March 29th at 7pm GMT
End time: Tuesday, April 2nd at 11pm GMT
The team has made the process interesting for viewers as well, with a unique approach to participation and donations.
Indeed, players can donate to convince the team to complete certain tasks, or catch and name Pokémon a certain way.
Their website keeps track of all donations so they know which tasks to complete next and which Pokémon to catch. The six Pokémon in their squad are always the Pokémon with the highest total donations. Viewers often group together to support their favourite Pokémon, sometimes donating hundreds to keep them in the top six.
What Can I Donate For?
- Catching Pokémon - We only catch the Pokémon you donate for (any of the first three generations). We'll even add a custom nickname. The minimum we ask for is £3.
- Catching rare Pokémon - Same as above but more hardcore. We ask for a minimum of £20 for these exclusive pokémon.
- Pokémon squad - We'll always make sure the six pokemon with the highest donations are in the current squad.
- Protagonist & Rival - If you donate to name the characters you can become our Pokémon master.
- Specific Requests - Got some other ideas about how we can play? As long as it's possible, we'll try it.
- Real World Challenges - Outside the game, we'll try to fulfil your abstract (and hopefully legal) requests.
- Full Restore used sing - Donate to hear us ruin your favourite songs during our gym battle sing-alongs.
- Series Select - You get to decide which Pokémon game we'll play for you.
