Pokémon Red/Blue Reverse Badge Acquisition

Post by eddaket » Thu Mar 03, 2016 12:15 am

* Timing is by RTA, where timer starts at New Game and ends when screen fades to white after Hall of Fame in game time is shown.
* All 8 badges must be won from their Gym Leaders in reverse order they appear on the Trainer Card
* Runs must be done on English version.
* Save Corruption is not allowed.
* Other glitches (trainer-fly, old man, etc) are allowed.
* Having a save file present on the cart/emulator when you start the run is not allowed. This rule is in place to prevent carrying over certain parts of save data from the old file, such as the glitched "fastest" text speed. You can use Up+B+Select on the title screen to clear your save data.
* All variants of VBA are banned from all GB/GBC games. Approved emulators are Gambatte and BGB.
* If using emulator, using save states is not allowed.
* No Lucky BS
* Video is not strictly required however it's recommended that you have one when you submit your time. Runs that take the top spot should definitely have a video

Sorry for double post, but the route was improved in the last few days:

new PB: 31:52: https://www.twitch.tv/chivu93/v/66994893

This run includes route improvements like a new Blaine (thanks to Stringflow), new Mewtwo with only 1 tile (instead of 2) to walk on, faster money manipulation for X Attack x118 and minor menu changes to reduce .j item lag. All in all this should save around 20 to 30s.

route: http://pastebin.com/n1w1HPN1 (EDIT: outdated by now)

[EDIT] 31:13: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X7iqvyLA-q8

I know I said I'd edit my last post when I PB, but then I realized it would be easier if I just made a new post

Hello all! I am new to speedrunning Pokemon Blue and eager to try and learn this category (to help it not become a meme!?), but I am having significant difficulty understanding the route instructions. Can anyone point me to somewhere I can read more about item underflow use and terminology etc.? Or, if it exists, a more detailed description of the route for this category.

Edit: Also, is it safe to save during the run after you start the item underflow?

Thanks for the help and also great job showing this off at SGDQ I really enjoyed the run there!

Edit 2: I did it! This game and category are awesome! :D May try and get a time soon!

The current route is a little lackluster, mostly because we assumed anyone who wanted to do the run knew about underflow, so we need to improve that. I went through yesterday and created a tutorial for the run, but I haven't highlighted it/put it on youtube yet. That will probably happen tonight. When that's done, I'll post it here.

Glad you completed a run though!
