This was also conveniently the fourth Pokémon marathon by TSG. As well as the first Pokémon marathon to last longer than 72 hours.

One of Reshiram that is shown during the day (with a similar background on the blog), and one of Zekrom that is shown during the night time (same similar background to match). In the forums, as a placeholder, both the Reshiram and Zekrom banners are combined into one. ==Community Jokes Spawned== <BOOKMARK:breakout>**HUGE BREAKOUT!** - When battling Lugia in SoulSilver, Britt shoutcasted the battle for donations. On the first attempt, Britt screamed “HUGE BREAKOUT!” whenever Lugia broke out of the Pokéballs. In future capture attempts, other commentators, as well as the chat used this phrase to describe escapes.\\ ==Trailers/Videos== [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qa3uWkhUsHQ|TheSpeedGamer's Week Long Pokemon Marathon Teaser ]]\\ [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgR2bNCzLTQ|Pokemon Marathon Update #1]]\\ [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0hjj5SzbIvo|Pokemon Marathon Update #2]]\\ [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n6ERa911UPI|Pokemon Marathon Update #3]]\\ [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iZmVW_49pIw|Pokemon Marathon Update #4]]\\ [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nj5eqYLWtv8|Pokemon Ok!
