Pretty sure they're aware of it.
WITHOUT USING ANY GLITCHES, except the Mew glitch (To obtain ONLY Mew and NO others!)

The only thing I wonder is: are they going to use multiple games or the Japanese Blue version in order to obtain every Pokémon?
 
We're very concerned.

What a great idea. :)
... This'd probably be a bit of challenge since there was no breeding in Generation I. Obtaining the starters and their evos is gonna be a bitch...

According to the site, they're using Red, Blue and two copies of Yellow. The plan is to get all 151 on a single cartridge (which will be a prize for a randomly-chosen donator). They'll presumably have to restart at least once to get all of the starters and their evolutions.

Also, you lot should donate! I just did, and I'm broke.

This would be a hell of a lot more interesting if they did this for Black and White with the Unova Dex (minus Meloetta and Genosect), but the cause is good.

Why don't they do it for Black and White instead of Red and Blue, I mean Red and Blue, please, do they even still work? I thought they had some glitch battery thing that stopped them playing after awhile.

The idea is that you collect sponsers and then do an activity. That's how it helps.

It's a... sponsored event, maybe? It works like any other sponsored event?

The first generation really remains the most iconic... plus 151 is a more manageable target than 649. As for the batteries, I believe that was a specific problem with Gold and Silver.

This could be pretty easy! The Yellow versions cover for the starters regardless of what the others choose. 3 of them could use their Master Balls for the birds. One will use it for Mewtwo, and then one will catch Mew. The other Pokémon are just distributed in between. Then they just trade them to one cartridge, most likely a Yellow one. The hardest part will most likely be the Safari Zone...

Good luck to these guys anyway. I would donate but Pokémon Black came out before I heard about this...

I think it's a great idea; playing videogames to raise cash! Wonder which poor sod will get stuck raising Dratini? I remember that being such a chore.

If they're smart, they'll shove it in daycare while they go lay the rest of the game, then pull it out just before level 55 and evolve it. Alternately, there was the EXP. ALL in Gen I, so that would be quite helpful in raising Pokémon's level without needing to battle with them.

Cool, could someone put that link in the article for convenience please?

I would love to take part in that, can't wait to see how long it takes them.
