Is anyone still continuing the Typholsion route? I'll be willing to help because I really want that to be a category 🙂

Ho-oh% Sounds like a cool category 😉

Has anybody been working on All Snags routing? I know a while ago LBlueEague was doing it but I'm not sure if he ever finished it.

Regarding 0 snags, Golderzoa has pretty much finished it afaik and I'll be starting some runs on that once I get my hands on the notes. I'll write the mods and hopefully we can get those categories up and running. I think that, as already mentioned a while ago in here, more people would be motivated to do runs for the categories once they are listed.

Beekle had a run done, I forget the time but with the new glitch, it seems like all snags won't be that bad of a run anymore. No snags is a good run since it follows the mindset of "Low%," though in this game the only counters are the number of snags so good luck

So, I wrote the mods on Discord (3 replies) and here's basically what they had to say:

LBlueEagle: I doubt 0 snags will be put up but all snags might be
Keizaron: We need concrete rules first and some runs to prove it can be competitive. Best bet for now is to make a leaderboard on PSR forums, and if people participate that proves it's a viable category. No snags might not be worth adding, all snags would be a good misc. category
Punyuta: All snags seems interesting even though it's hard to route/run, thinks it's worth a new category. No word on 0 snags

So, I guess we could set up a PSR leaderboard. I think it's unfortunate that they seem more against 0 snags, since that's the one that golderzoa's basically got a rough route for now (and there doesn't seem to be actual notes for all snags yet). Much more likely for less popular categories like this to be run by others if existing notes are already around.

I would like to route all snags, as it seems like a interesting category.

@PengWin - I agree with Keiz' opinion the most. Set up a Ruleset for a Category at the Forums and then do some Runs. And when we got 3-4-ish Runs we could transfer those times to a new "official" Leaderboard

I'd be interested in trying out no snags and all snags as well, no snags sounds very appealing to me since you'd have to rely on only 3 total pokemon in this rough game.

I've never posted on the PSR forums, can someone else set that up? I think that we could probably get both categories in if we have several people submit runs in both. Even if it's just misc. categories, kinda hard for them to argue with if we have a bunch of people doing the runs.

As I mentioned a couple times, Golderzoa's developed a rough route for no snags. He's still working on optimizing it, and come mid September I'll have more time to look helping him out as well. If he doesn't have time to write it up by then, I'll look to write up a full gulde for you guys to use if you'd like.

Eyyy Ryddyx, I decided to do a 100% run kind of as a one time thing on stream, and now GenoKirby is looking at making a more complete route, Golderzoa tried it, I'm probably gonna try it again and Alanpikachu has expressed interest in maybe doing it. Think we could add a leaderboard on the psr forums for that as well just to have in case people use it?

Rules we were discussing for it would be to snag and purify all pokemon, complete all colosseum challenges, defeat Mirakle B, beat Mt Battle on Story mode and then beat Mt Battle in the Battle Mode as well.

Looks good, just add defeating Mirakle B as a requirement and I think we're good to go

I made the Splits for All Snags - I can't add it as a resource but I'd appreciate it if some mod could add it to resources (because i wasn't able to add it). It contains Snag 1/48, Snag 2/48 all the way down to Snag 47/48 with the last split called "Togetic" - Splits are numbered because every runner snags in a different order.

that is the weirdest reason I have ever heard to have a category name not use common naming schemes. Also you realize you're being annoyed about this for a category that's unofficial and therefore has no single correct name?

So, I think we got the basic ruleset done for 100% and we got 1 run atm
Rules are available in the Forum thread

We got 1 run atm with 100% rules

Can we make 100% an official category now?

Here's the Ruleset and Stuff: http://forums.pokemonspeedruns.com/viewtopic.php?f=151&t=788

We've got 3 completed 0 snags runs. What do we have to do to get this on the leaderboards 😱
