Pokemon Yellow 128 Pokemon: Glitchless Notes (Max%)

Post by Fionordequester » Mon Feb 08, 2016 5:10 am

Having seen Shenanagan's 124 Glitchless run of Pokemon Blue, I was inspired to make one for Yellow. But, my notes probably aren't fully optimized yet, so, I decided I'd post what I have so far. If any of you (perhaps Shenanagans) have any interest in this kind of run, then here they are. The beginning hour or so of the game is, of course, heavily inspired by the current Any% Glitchless route, but it starts to deviate significantly once we get Bulbasaur. So, here goes...

VIRIDIAN CITY
- Buy 12 Poke Balls, 1 Paralyz Heal, and 3 Antidotes

ROUTE 2
- DSum: http://imgur.com/Ol8ubxG
- Get Pidgey, Ratatta, and Nidoran F while you're doing this

VIRIDIAN FOREST
- Switch Nidoran to the front immediately to kill the turn frame
- Get all of the items here except for the Potion near the bottom left corner of the forest. That one is perhaps too far out of the way.
- Bug Catcher 1: Leer x2, Tackle x3-4, Leer, Tackle x4
- Heal to 12+ HP
- Catch a Pidgey if you see it (HA to weaken; Tackle if Lv. 4 vs. Lv. 10 Nido)
- Catch a Caterpie, and also a Metapod if you manage to find it (if you get a Metapod, that saves you time you would have otherwise had to spend switch in an Elite 4 battle)
- Bug Catcher 2: (Switch HA to slot 1), HA x3, HA x4
- Heal to 9+ HP (11+ with bad Defense)
- Bug Catcher 3: HA x4
- In the house, heal to 27+ HP unless taking center

PEWTER CITY
- Take the center and deposit everyone but Nidoran and Pikachu only if you have <13 Horn Attacks.
- (Yes, Pikachu needs to still be with you, because we need Bulbasaur)

PEWTER GYM

Slowbro is a 1% encounter on Seafoam Islands, and a 5% encounter here, but on the other hand, you can't use a Super Repel without chasing away all of the Level 15 Bros.

- Water Gun for Geos and Onix's that are only about 7-10 levels above you, Bubblebeam for those 11-16 levels above, and Surf for those that are stronger than that, and Blizzard for Zubats and Golbats (but use Water Gun if you get a freeze).

- If Graveler appears, try to use Haunter to catch it.
- Moltres: Use X-Accuracy + Poke Flute + keep putting it to sleep till you catch it

SEAFOAM ISLAND:

POWER PLANT

- Make sure you have 4 Full Restores
- Withdraw Poke Flute
- Put Articuno into the 1st slot and save

ELITE FOUR
- Lorelei: Use Peck with Articuno, then switch to Dragonair and hope that Dewgong uses rest. If he does, do this...
>X-Accuracy + Agility + HD 5x
- Put Dragonair into 1st slot
- Save before Bruno
- Bruno: Agility + Surf + X-Accuracy + HD 2x + Surf + HD
- Use Max Ether on Horn Drill and heal Dragonair to 80+ HP
- Put Zapdos into 1st slot
- Agatha: Use Guard Spec. + Drill Peck your way to victory (tag in Articuno if Zapdos dies)
- Lance: X-Accuracy + Agility + Full Restore + Agility + HD 5x
(Gyarados will ALWAYS use Dragon Rage on Dragonair. After all, it's SUPER EFFECTIVE, right :durr: ?)
- Heal Dragonair up to full, restore Horn Drill's PP, Save
- Champion: X-Accuracy + Agility + HD 6x (make sure Dragonair has above 60 HP by the time he goes up against Flareon. It's Quick Attack can kill Dragonair)

PALLET TOWN
- Turn Animations off
- Fly to Cerulean City
- Deposit Dragonair
- Withdraw Wartortle, Haunter, and Poliwhirl
- Withdraw one Water Stone, and use it on Poliwhirl
- Put Haunter in 1st slot
- Surf to Cerulean Cave

CERULEAN CAVE
- Fish up Goldeen and Seaking (Seaking doesn't have anything that can hurt Haunter)
- Put Wartortle in the 1st slot
- Get all of the items, including the two Rare Candies
- Now, unfortunately, Wartortle is helpless against most of the enemies here, including any Graveler that outspeeds him. But he still needs to evolve, so here's what you do...

Against Golbat: Zap with Zapdos
Against Graveler: Surf if Wartortle is within 20 levels of it, switch to Haunter and hope that it uses Explosion or Self-Destruct if it's stronger than that (it knows Earthquake)
Against Sandslash: Obliterate with Articuno
Against Gloom and Weepinbel: Pick apart with Zapdos
Against Ditto: Just run. It's trash experience anyway
Against Rhyhorn: Surf (the only pokemon Wartortle consistently outspeeds)
Against Rhydon: If you want to play risky, use Surf, as this guy gives out 1806 Exp or so. Otherwise, switch to Articuno.

- In addition, switch Haunter into every new Pokemon you have to catch. Believe it or not, Graveler is the only new Pokemon you have to catch who can hurt Haunter! Well, ok, Sandslash has Poison Sting, but even with the level disadvantage, that only does about 10 Damage. So with that said...
- Use X-Accuracy to assist with catching Chansey (it has Minimize), and catch Lickitung, Rhydon, Sandslash, Chansey, and Mewtwo (Haunter has the best chance of surviving, and X-Accuracy will do him good, but you'll probably need a few resets)
- Dig outta there

CERULEAN CITY:
- Go on an evolving spree, but only use a Rare Candy on Tentacool as you're doing so (not sure if you need to Change Boxes for the Safari Zone Pokemon. You very likely WON'T have to). Once you're all done...
- Withdraw Coin Case as you're doing all this
- Be sure to have 1 Fire Stone left over after doing all that.
- Withdraw Ponyta
- Deposit all your other Pokemon except Charizard, and go get Magikarp from the Day Care Center (man that was a while ago...)
- Use Rare Candy on Magikarp, and Fly to Celadon Game Corner

GAME CORNER:
- Get the 100 Coins from one tile to the north and two tiles to the east of the right-hand side of the top of the third cluster of slot machines from the west.
- Buy another 900 Coins, and go buy Vulpix (evolve into Ninetales)
- Buy another 9999 Coins, and go buy Porygon
- Fly to Safari Zone

SAFARI ZONE:
- Get any Pokemon you didn't get last time, and go to Indigo Plateau

INDIGO PLATEAU
- Heal here to set warp point.
- Deposit every Pokemon except Ponyta
- Teach Ponyta Horn Drill, use 3 PP Ups on Horn Drill.

ENDGAME:
- Use 2 X-Speeds + Accuracy + Horn Drill on Lorelei, and X-Accuracy + X-Speed on Bruno. Then suicide on Agatha
- Get out Mewtwo and Metapod (Caterpie works too, but Metapod is preferable)
- Teach Mewtwo Thunderbolt over Swift
- Have Ponyta defeat Lorelei and Bruno again (will evolve it into Rapidash).
- Sweep Agatha
- Have Dragonair sweep Lance for an extra level
- Use 12 Rare Candies on Dragonair to evolve it
- Evolve Metapod into Butterfree via Rival

YOU WIIIIN!!!

You can trade a Cubone for a Machoke that then evolves (you get both in dex) on Route 5.

I think I see Dragonair evolved twice?

Oh, whoops. Yeah, that was an artifact from earlier on. Then I realized that I would want another Rare Candy to evolve Magikarp in addition to the one I used for Tentacool :lol: .

There are higher level Tentacools in Seafoam Island while surfing (minimum level 20), so you should catch one there instead.
Jack-Flys are OpieOP.

Oh, thank you Lucky, and thank you Gifvex. Btw, what do you all think of the way I leveled up Venusaur and Charizard? Are there any more efficient ways that you can think of? I went out of my way for a lot of them, but I was concerned about their ability to stand up to later foes. They're not as fortunate as Pidgeotto and Dragonair were in getting OHKO moves, after all.

Thinking about it more though, I wonder if I should've saved Omastar training for Cerulean Cave, rather than having Wartortle try and manage his way through it? Omastar's much better defensively, and he'd most certainly be able to OHKO Rhyhorn and Graveler, possibly even Rhydon. But on the other hand, Wartortle would probably have a much harder time against Blaine...

What do you all think?

I'm not exactly sure whether grinding the three starters and other Pokémon on earlier-game trainers is better than doing the grinding on the Elite Four, but I may be wrong. I'm leaning towards Elite Four grind, but you'll have to test it out yourself.

I'll probably sit down and look this over/route it myself at some point. Generally you want to do all grinding later in the game (both catching and leveling).

For example beating an entire trainer early game with charmander will get you about 500-1000 exp, and take 3-4 extra turns. Beating lorelai with mewtwo + charmander switching after every poke will take 5 extra turns, but yield about 4000 experience.

I'm not exactly sure what the dragonair route will look like, but it gets horndrill super low level so it can probably destroy the early game.

If you need to save candies most water types are pretty easy to evolve because how OP surf is. Seel, psyduck, tenta, omanyte, and wartortle are all very powerful once you give them surf.

Candying dragonair is generally a bad idea, because it is so fast to level him on lorelai + bruno once it hits around level 45. xacc + drill (use agility on slowbro to outspeed jynx if you need to) surf + ice beam bruno. Those candys would be way better to use to get other more annoying pokemon a quick level up.

Might be a good idea to do seafoam before blaine's gym so you can evolve water pokemon there. Not sure.

Just some general strategy lol. I was planning on doing a run of this sometime in the future, but I havent really sat down to route it yet.

Unrelated to the route, but just so it isn't missed. You can get Machamp by trading a Cubone for Machoke on Route 5 which makes the total 129 pokes. gifvex alluded to it but didn't outright say that you get Machamp.

Like shen I'll probably look over the route at some point. Definitely something I considered looking at before.
