On November 22, let’s be thankful…that Seasons 1-5 of Pokémon the Series are coming back to Twitch!

The marathon will stream on the TwitchPresents channel, which commonly hosts reruns of Bob Ross, and will feature the first five seasons. After December 3, there will be a brief hiatus until the marathon picks back up from December 24 to January 3, 2019.
News of the marathon comes after Twitch first ran 19 seasons and 16 movies of the Pokémon anime in a separate stream last August for viewers in the US, Canada, Europe, Latin America, and Australia. The holiday marathon will function similarly but with a few hundred fewer episodes.
This has been a strong November for the Pokémon franchise as GameFreak released two versions of Pokémon: Let’s Go for the Nintendo Switch prior to the holiday season. Additionally, the first trailer for Warner Bros. Picture’s Detective Pikachu officially dropped a little over a week ago, and fans went wild.
