The Pokemon Indigo League #ReadThemAllThon is a 3 week long reading challenge based on the Kanto’s Indigo League. Long-time fans of the series would recognise this as the first set of gyms Ash Ketchum had to conquer in his quest to become the Pokemon Master. Now you, my friends, will also embark on a journey to become the very best. Instead of fighting gym battles, you’ll be reading books instead!
The read-a-thon will run for 3 weeks between Sunday 14th August to Sunday 4th September. You can sign up anytime between now and the end of the read-a-thon.
There are 8 reading challenges within this read-a-thon, based on the 8 gyms that are in the Indigo League. Earn a badge every time you complete a book! This will also be the first ever read-a-thon that I will ever be participating in! I’m so excited to be a part of this!
Let’s begin with my TBR!
Pewter Gym: The First Book In A Series
This Rock-type gym is the first gym Ash and the Pokemon player ever encounters.
Finish this challenge to win a Boulder Badge.
Rebel Of The Sands by Alwyn Hamilton
Cerulean Gym: A Book That Might Make You Cry
This Water-type gym has a badge that looks like a droplet of your tear, so read a book
that will rip your heart out. Finish this challenge to win a Cascade Badge.
If I Was Your Girl by Meredith Russo
Vermillion Gym: A Book With Thunderous Hype
Vermillion City is the home to Lt. Surge and his many Electric-type Pokemon.
For this challenge, read a book that’s been hyped all over bestseller’s list and the internet. Finish this challenge to win a Thunder Badge.
This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab
Celadon Gym: A Book That Focuses on Diversity
Celadon Gym is one of my favourites, because of it’s colourful Grass-type aesthetics.
Read a diverse book and you will earn yourself a Rainbow Badge.
The Great American Whatever by Tim Federle
Fuschia Gym: A Book With A Great Romance
I’ve always been confused by the fact that a Poison-type gym has a heart-shaped badge. Can someone explain please. Read a book that features romance prominently and earn a Soul Badge.
You Know Me Well by Nina LaCour and David Levithan
Saffron Gym: A Book With Fantasy/Supenatural Elements
Saffron City is where all the Psychic-types hang out, so for this challenge, read a bool with fantasy, magical realism, or paranormal elements. Finish this challenge to win a Marsh Badge.
Rebel Spring by Morgan Rhodes
Cinnabar Gym: A Book With A Red Cover
Cinnabar Island is famous for red earth and Fire-type Pokemon. For this challenge, read a book with a red cover. Complete this challenge to win a Volcano Badge.
Tell Me Something Real by Calla Devlin
Viridian Gym: A Book With Post-Apocalyptic Setting
The final gym is home to a Team Rocket Leader (OK, if it’s been out 10+ years you can’t cry spoilers) and Ground-type Pokemon. For this challenge, read a book featuring a ruined, post-apocalyptic Earth. Finish this to win yourself an Earth Badge.
East of West, Volume 1 by Jonathan Hickman
Extra Points & Fun
The main challenge is to read those eight books in the 3 weeks. However, you can also have ONE POKEMON EACH and use them to keep scores and figure out who’s the very best. To learn more about this, check out the original read-a-thon blog post.
DRATINI, I CHOOSE YOU.
And there you have my TBR. I think it might be a little ambitious,
but let’s see how far I can push myself to Read Em’ All!
