Clarification on RNG manipulation for Gameboy Color main series Pokemon games on emulator

Following the recent discovery of RNG manipulation strategies for Gen1/2 main series games, and the unfortunate realization that in the vast majority of cases emulators do not do it accurately, we have come to the following ruling: Using hard resets during the run to manipulate the RNG on emulators ...

Re: 3DS Virtual Console Speed Runs
