WARNING

This is less of a "guide" than it is just notes to help during the run. Nothing is written in great detail and a lot of stuff is abbreviated. If you have any questions regarding the route, ask me (@Kylovic) or consair (@Consair7) for help.

CREDITS

Original Route by Luckytyphlosion. He found all the glitchy stuff so credits to him. I only rewrote his route and added things.
I also took some stuff from Consair's 16:34 wr run so some credits to him.

Intro

- name player aaaaaaa (7 lower case a's)
- sunday/no/yes

Early Game

- get Cyndaquil (stats don't matter)

- run away from every encounter
- mr pokemon (no need for any potions)

- rival: leer x1 then tackle
- MUST WIN the rival fight (reset if not)

- go back to Elm's lab, get poké balls

Bad Clone Setup

- catch dummy pokemon for cloning (any lvl 2-4 Pidgey or 2-4 Ratatta works)
- swap tackle with smokescreen (use select during encounter)

- enter cherrygrove center

Cherrygrove Center

- clone cyndaquil:
- 1 Cyndaquil in party. deposit it, perform a regular clone
- move w/o mail the clone to the party. now you have 2 in party. deposit both. regular clone again
- move w/o mail both clones to the party. now you have 4 in party. deposit 2. regular clone
- move w/o mail one clone to the party. now you have 5 in party, 1 in box that stays in there
- begin bad clone attempts: deposit all 5, reset earlier than regular clone
- once have bad clone, deposit 3 cyndaquils, withdraw bad clone
- the bad clone is always female, is type steel with some glitched stuff and HAS NO MOVES <-- important
- if you get a bad clone WITH MOVES, try again cause it's useless

- timings:
- regular clone: fade out reset, a press right after
- bad clone: power off after YES click

- swap regular cyndaquil to 4th party slot, dummy poke should be in third, bad clone should be in first
- name boxes:
BOX 1-5:
; H é [mn] 2 H é T 'd
; U g é S 'd H E
; é & 2 'v 't é ( 'd
; U é ! 2 p p p é
; 4 é d 2 [pk] [pk] [pk] 'd

BOX 8:
; X X X E g 'm v 2

Stupid Glitch that (almost) never works

- walk to this location, save while facing up: http://puu.sh/tmO7g/9170048d77.png

- type d0 glitch grinding:
- walk up 1, right 4 so that the player is below the first tree after the pathway and the mart door appears on screen
- open pokemon menu, view bad clone's moves through move menu
- continually press up until you hear bonking, can back out and re-enter if too many sprites on screen (not sure if does
anything to prevent crashes)
- soft reset on hard locks, reset on crashes
- on bgb, if invalid opcode debugger pops up, right click bgb -> other -> reset gameboy
- once you hear bonking, (refresh screen through select/start), walk left 1, up 5, left 1, right 2, press A to talk to red
- timing ends after the last ... textbox closes.
