What is the #ReadThemAllThon?

This is a Read-a-Thon that takes place from August 14th to September 4th, you can sign up at anytime through the end of the challenge. It was created by Aentee at Read at Midnight and you can check out her original post to learn all the specific in’s and out’s of it here.

In summary, there are 8 reading challenges based on the 8 Indigo League gyms. You choose a Pokemon if you want, and completing the challenges earns you badges. You can also earn Combat Power (CP), again check out the original post for specifics, that help you evolve your Pokemon. In the end, whoever has the Pokemon with the highest CP wins the challenge, earns bragging rights, and a prize that Aentee has not yet announced!
