Welcome back to the Pokemon Olympic Games. Today we have the first running event of the competition, the Run Marathon! In this event Pokemon that each team selected will have to run a marathon. This means that while speed may be important, being able to pace themselves and the amount of stamina they have will be the main factor in them winning. Before we introduce the Competitors that were chosen let us reveal the results of the previous race, The Aerial Sprint!

This competition has 12 competitors, works very much like the Best user competition where each position will be given points and the one with the most over all will win. Here is an example of how you will vote this competition:
All the way down until 1 point. These places represent who you think will place first with the one you think will win getting 12 points with the one you think would lose getting 1 and every placement in between. Unlike the Sprint, the Marathon lasts 48 hours and every user can vote once every 24 hours. In other words, You can vote twice this round.
Now that the rules have been explained we will now introduce the Pokemon that were selected to represent their generation!
Representing Generation 1 - Kanto, we have:
Representing Generation 2 - Johto, we have:
Representing Generation 3 - Hoenn, we have:
Representing Generation 4 - Sinnoh, we have:
Representing Generation 5 - Unova, we have:
Representing Generation 6 - Kalos, we have:
This Marathon will last 48 hours and will allow each user to vote once every 24 hours meaning each user has a chance to vote twice in this competition.
Comentators: This is the first running event we have today and while it may not be the clash of the titans running sprint it is still an exciting race in the run marathon. Generation 1 looks like to team to watch bringing in two of its strongest runners. Generation 2's choices are interesting. Generation 3 seems to be wanting to extend their lead bringing in a Pokemon that is said to never be tired, but while endurance does matter speed is also a factor. Generation 4 has also brought in some reliable Pokemon with great endurance and good speed. Generation 5 has some interesting choices but we'll know how much endurance and speed they have soon enough. Last but not least is Generation 6 who has brought in the Pokemon who probably has more endurance than every other Pokemon outside of the one who does not tire, but like we mentioned earlier speed matters. Each team has a fairly interesting duo going into this event and it will be interesting to not only see which Pokemon pulls off a win but which team manages to score the most points this round.
On your mark! Get set! Bang!
