Raticate% (Pokemon Red/Blue Any% with Rattata + Raticate)

Post by Lunar758 » Sun May 04, 2014 12:08 am

Hey, I thought since I'm getting back into speed running, and will be attempting Raticate% again, I thought I would make a thread specifically for it, containing Leaderboards, an FAQ, and one or more routes (possibly from others if they would like theirs on this thread). Oh, and by the way, I'm new to forum codes OpieOP

FAQ

Q: What is Raticate%?

A: Raticate% is a category where you complete the game with a Rattata / Raticate.

Q: Why didn't you just edit the starter for a Raticate?

A: 1. You can't edit the file in any way shape or form, if you do, console players cannot attempt the run. 2. It's hardly even possible to do it without Squirtle, since you need him for the first gym to give the Rattata some EXP.

Q: Why don't you just catch a Rattata and evolve it and you finished the run?

A: That will make it extremely short, because you evolve him at Cerulean / Nugget Bridge.

Q: Why use Rattata / Raticate when Nidoking and Blastoise are faster?

A: Raticate% is mainly a fun category, its not a serious category where you strive for WR time, Rattata / Raticate is slower, which means that its basically impossible to get WR, so it's considered a fun category.

Q: Why can't you just use Squirtle with most of the game and switch between Rattata / Raticate everytime?

A: The max level of the starter is 11, I did this because otherwise you won't be using Rattata / Raticate as much.

Q: What is the BKT (Best Known Time) for this category?

A: 2:08 by DaStevoBelgium.

Q: What's your time?

A: 2:38, I'll be improving this by quite a lot. aiming for sub 2:20 or 2:15, possibly lower.

Q: What are the major run killers in Raticate%?

A: There isn't really much, mainly Nugget Bridge Rival, and crits against the Elite Four or Champion.

Q: What are the main differences between Squirtle / Nido runs?

A: Raticate% is quite similar to Nido%, but quite different to Squirtle%. Really, the only differences in Nido and Raticate are that Raticates X items are pretty much triple, and you don't use OHKO moves, or get EQ or Rock Slide. Raticate is quite different to Squirtle%, I don't know the route well, so I'm not entirely sure on the differences, I just know that the X items are doubled, you don't need to catch the main Pokemon, getting Body Slam is like in Raticate%, Squirtle has OHKO moves, and the Gym Order is quite different. Also, going to Silph is later than Nido% compared to Raticate.

Post on the forum for any other questions I can add!

http://wiki.pokemonspeedruns.com/index. ... aticate%25 Probably linking to this as well might be useful. I am guessing the purpose of moving this to the forums is for primarily route modification discussion? I am also interested how you will format the leaderboard on a post.

Yes, it is, and I'm thinking of adding a picture linking to the leaderboard section on the wiki or something. Still thinking about it. And thanks for the link idea.

Really the only major run killer is Nugget Bridge Gary Fight. Nothing else really.

Still wondering if Mimic has any use in Raticate%, considering pullling 5 X Attacks on Champion is slow. (Mimic Horn Drill%)

Based sig though Kappa.
Jack-Flys are OpieOP.

When going to Sabrina, take a detour to the Mimic Girl's house here: http://puu.sh/8AEKK.png

Remember to buy an extra Poke Doll.

Just for comparisons sake. These are the notes that CP, Stevo, Jpain and I worked on for a while. I am sure there are still route improvements.

I intend to one day do a segmented Rattata/Raticate run. Could be potentially hilarious considering I will be using the PP overflow glitch to get my Rat 63 Hyper Beams. Should be fun, yes. =)
