btw Joe, how do you suppose showdown is a real game, its just a competive tool for battlers, not strimmers, well for the most part. It also cant be filled to the brim with FEAR TriHard 's FailFish

Too bad you countered everything shen had on his FEAR team Kappa.

Just stuff the team with Swift Swim+Drizzle Kappa.

Inside jokes will be inside jokes. Anyways, Fear is virtually non existent, and RNG is a matter in all pokemon runs. Making good compulsive descions is actually not easy at all. Simple guidelines can be followed to make a legit showdown speedrun. Showdown is not game a game, I objectively did not say that it was.

Yep Kappa honestly, I think that the idea of a Showdown run...is fun. I might take it up sometime and implement Werster Strats OpieOP

Yeah, but you're limited by the time it takes the opponent.
How about a versus speedrun, where both players have to be as fast as possible during their turn?
Or maybe something which would do -1 from a players' health every frame (lol) until they finish their turn.

idk I'm just throwing around ideas OneHand

The concept of a showdown speedrun is based off of winning a certain amount of games. The only "run" ever done was 5 games completed in 14 minutes. This is easily beatable with better strats however. First we must set up some rules. Firstly, games must be played starting on a new alt, making the players played against all on the same skill level. Secondly, only one game at once. Being able to open more games could end up with all players forfeiting at once, ending the run with an unbeatable time. Players forfeiting quickly makes 10 a more reasonable amount of games, however. Games can be played in any tier, however OU is clearly the most optimal. Desicion making changes from winning efficiently to end the game quicker.

Do you mean how are you able to show Sum of best segments?

Right click W-split -> Compare Against -> Sum of best segments

Otherwise, if you meant how to make splits, you have to save the run when you finish a run, or manually add them in.

The best way is to use the New/Edit option on Wsplit. Once you name your splits on there, do a no reset run, and then save those splits. Now you have splits to compare against.

If you are just starting out and you want a game thats easy to learn you should try Red or Crystal. But you can just choose which game you like most
