Pokémon Red/Blue Forum  /  can we make a category
  Optimal_VelocityOptimal_Velocity

There are a few categories here but I was wondering if we could make a no ram manipulation category. I find the ram manipulation sort of boring but would like to see what we can do with just glitches. I was thinking any glitch that does not involve the menus being used as ram manipulation being allowed/

Tbh I liked the old route of NSC before manips were a thing

Samen the new one relies too much on RNG.

so could we get that made an actual category? I mean i don't know who gets the say all end all on this but i think it would be a good idea

You can still run the old NSC route if you want to and just submit it under the current category. Just know the time won't be in the least bit competitive. Best time was 12:59 (charmander manip route) and 13:30 (bulba ditto route) iirc.

but that's not the point. I get that I can do this but I don't want to just run for my sake I want competition and I think this would be a good way to get that started. it seems like some others agree as well.

Can always just do the run then use the PSR forums to hold a pseudo leaderboard and maybe get it approved to end up on SRC if you really want to.

please don't do that, charmander manip is crap

 
  Bogdan_mkdBogdan_mkd

It's faster, but is a lot harder and not fun since you will be reseting a lot

The title is literally “no RNG manip”. ???

Wait so wasn't this no manip thing supposed to use the pp/pidgey strat?

 
  tenguliamtenguliam

Yes, but he means charmander manip. As in the cooltrainer route.

 
  FaulheitFaulheit

well if this category becomes a thing then that shouldn't be allowed

The current process for getting new categories like this to be a thing is to make a forum leaderboard with a few times on it to show interest. Here's the forum:
