    If you guys head over to The Speed Gamers' website, you'll notice that there's a special event going on this week. From June 15-22, their moderators and gamers are going to catch every single Pokemon as a charity event! Smogon is supporting the event (you can read the announcement here), so it seems reasonable enough that we should have a place to discuss the event! That's what this topic is for. Feel free to discuss the actual run-through, the Act Today! organization, or anything related to the event.

    TGS' is raising money for Act Today!, which is an organization that provides funds and services to autistic children in order to help them achieve their maximum potential. It's really cool stuff; you should check out their Mission Statement. I dunno, I think it's awesome that people are using Pokemon to make a difference in the lives of autistic children and their families. If you with to make a donation, please click on this link to support their cause. Their goal is $50,000 dollars, so let's help them make that dream a reality!

    Here's some quotes and resources from their site that should help answer some of your questions on the event:

    Yep, that's about it! I can't wait to watch this event unfold; these guys are awesome for putting on such a cool fundraiser for autistic children. You can check out their newsfeed for even more information. Let's cheer them on as they get started tonight at 6 PM CDT!

    We can all watch the live feed here. THIS IS LIVE RIGHT NOW!

    Haha, well now we will have a lovely Butterfree instead =)


    Also, they're taking donations of $5 to name an entire Pokemon evolution chain. Methinks I'm gonna hop on that before it's too late, haha.

    Props for creating a thread like this. Always wanted to do more support for these guys in the past but never got anything like this up.
