Re: Revisiting Timing Methods for Pokemon Speedruns (IGT vs RTA)

I stand by my opinion that regardless of the technical hurdles and potential for abuse (even though many other games have always been using RTA with no issues whatsoever), the lowered barrier of entry to speedrunning a Pokémon game granted by allowing S+Q should outweight any con to switching to RTA...

Re: Revisiting Timing Methods for Pokemon Speedruns (IGT vs RTA)

As far as Gen 6 goes, in the case RTA is put in place I would advocate the timer start to be upon pressing the Start Game and end with the fadeout after the Congratulations page showing your team after beating the E4. That would save 10 minutes of credits and a pretty much superfluous fight. The Jap...

Re: Alpha Sapphire Rerouting

The route is pretty simple by Pokemon speedrunning standards, so I'd say just go ahead and follow the route, shouldn't take too long. Save frequently and annotate small details that you have noticed and aren't in the written route that you wan't to keep in mind for later.

Re: Alpha Sapphire Rerouting

Awesome route, thanks for all the work put into it! I really like the early game tweaks to make it more consistent. One thing to maybe consider is that after beating Roxanne most of the time you will be in Torrent, making 1 shotting everything Jose has with Watergun possible. So go to 116, pick up R...

Re: Using the forums for transparency

As an ORAS runner (and apparently the only active one left) I have to agree that the route in the wikis is terribly unoptimized and can only be used as a "reference" of sorts. It's a very safe route, using many superflous X items that are ultimately not needed if you want to get an optimal time, but...

Re: Introduce Yourself Here!

Hey guys I'm Astralslide and I just started streaming Alpha Sapphire (have plans for more games in the future), but first I have to get a PB on the record, which shouldn't be hard at all.

www.twitch.tv/astralslide - shitty mic stream.

Love you guys.
