The Catch a Million Pokémon Charity Event Announces Community Partners and Giant Incentives

April 6, 2023

Discord servers Bulbagarden, Let’s Do This Streamers, Pokémon Center, and Pokémon Go Raids are set to support childhood cancer research in St. Baldrick’s annual streaming event starting April 23rd, with sponsors Logitech and LF Gaming offering up over $12,000 in incentives.

A groundswell of more than 279,000 gamers joins the St. Baldrick’s Foundation annual Pokémon event Catch a Million to Conquer Kids’ Cancer. From April 23 to April 30th, creators will compete to see which team can catch the most Pokémon while inviting independent creators and gamers to join in the fun.

Those communities include the following:

  • Bulbagarden
  • Let’s Do This Streamers
  • Pokémon Center
  • Pokémon Go Raids

These players, alongside the several hundred individual players, will use their platforms to raise funds to support research to find cures and better treatments for all childhood cancers. Thanks to the support of Logitech and LF Gaming, they can also earn an LF Gaming chair or one of 30 bundles of Logitech products, which include headsets, keyboards, and other streaming peripherals.

How it works: Streamers and creators will livestream any official Pokémon game with the St. Baldrick’s Twitch/YouTube-integrated app enabled to track their catches. Event followers can check real-time stats during the event at

Every creator with an appreciation for Pokémon is welcome to join the Catch a Million event. Players can also register individually through the event’s website.
