Hey guys,
I live in europe and wanted to buy a Pokemon Blue USA cartridge. Now I've found some on ebay, but some of them say "DMG-APEE-USA-1" on the left side and other say "DMG-APEE-USA". I googled some differences and all I could find is "That one with the 1 at the end was on a late release". Soy my question is: Can somebody confirm that Brock skip works on cartridges with an 1 at the end?
Thanks guys!

Are the 3DS ports of the games allowed?

So I've done some looking into speed run s and am thinking about doing one myself, but I would like to try a different route than most Has a dugtrio speed run ever been looked into? Dugtrio has 35 more spd then Nido and only 12 less atk. He also comes at at least lv 29 which is higher than the Nidoking I saw at that point. Comparison wise Nidoking does have a wider move pool and can run a boltbeam while Dugtrio is limited to ground/rock/normal. However, Dugtrio also has access to slash which, with his speed, should crit at least 90% to provide great neutral coverage. Another drawback that I see right now is he's limited to dig/scratch until you clear rock tunnel and pick up rockslide. A potential finishing set would be eq/rockslide/slash/ dig or fissure.
Any thoughts or shut down comments?

I looked into Dugtrio in 2014. Slash is a great move for the early game; sadly, Dugtrio isn't available until Vermilion. You might save time in a few fights, but you'd lose a lot of time after Surge because Nidoking OHKOs almost everything and can hold red bar as a result. Dugtrio would have slower fights and would need to heal more often.

It would be a fun run, though, if you could tolerate trying to catch Dugtrio.

Each character that loads up is a frame, so yes, naming yourself does matter in a speedrun.

In the "Revisiting oobLG" thread, there's a lot of references to LWA, but I can't seem to find any information about this glitch. Can someone point me somewhere or describe it to me?

Wow, yeah, that is pretty crazy. I can see why it would be banned. Although I'm glad there's a No Restrictions category now since I enjoy running stupid routes like that.

Hey, currently trying out the new route for catch 'em all and it works great until power plant. When I try to teach fly to Mew, there is X-Special in my money slot instead of HM02. Tried it multiple times, but I can't find my mistake. Does anyone have an idea what I'm doing wrong?

Are you using the virtual console release of the game?

I'm pretty sure something is screwed up with the money slot on the VC version of the game

I tried both the 3DS version and the emulator version. Is there somewhere a list of differences between the 3DS and the original version? Or, more specifically, what should I play different?
Thanks in advance
EDIT: Nevermind, seems like the problem is that I used VBA out of laziness (already had it before). So if I didn't screw up horribly the VBA and the 3DS version both don't work with that route, gambatte works fine though.

I don't know if you're aware or not, but runs on VBA aren't accepted to the leaderboards anyway. It's probably not a big deal if you're just doing runs casually though.

"All variants of VBA are banned from all GB/GBC games. Approved emulators are Gambatte and BGB."

Also, I don't remember where it is but the community has also come to a ruling where 3DS VC is banned for categories that use money manip. Here's a snippet from the discord when that decision was made:

Dabomstew: the end result above that wall of text was that yes, money manip really is fucked, and we found a new pattern for how it works, basically it treats A as -6, B as -5, ..., F as -1. so if you have 1F000 you actually have 9k when you buy something/spend money (10000 -1000). Makes money manip completely different when invalid numbers are involved, so 3DSVC should probably be banned for 151 categories. Still don't think it needs banning for anything else.

And the topic for the #gen1-glitched channel is - PSA: Don't use 3DSVC for any kind of Gen1 glitched category with money manip.

It's not part of the official ruleset on speedrun.com, but I imagine it will be there in the near future.

I downloaded it recently and had to further download Java SE Runtime Environment. Choose the correct one depending on your PC/other device and install it. Then opening Red Helper with Java should work.

In the Ditto Strat for Any% NSC I am able to get all of it except for catching the Ditto. It always tells me that the ball misses. When operating that menu does it all have to be frame-perfect there as well?

Yes, hold down and a when bulbasaur's cry is playing, then switch to up+a with balls in slot 1, or a+b with balls in slot 2

Hey all - I'm new to pokemon speedruns and this is my first post! Just wondering - how can I get a consistent Trainer ID of 76 D6 on Blue Any % NSC? I keep on trying in BGB and getting values like 58 or 86 etc.

Am I using the wrong version of the ROM? The version I have keeps on showing the blue border around the main game that you see in Pokemon Stadium's player.
