Forums  /  Pokémon  /  Emulator Help

Hi all, I'm new to this whole thing and looking to try my hand at it. I was thinking of using an emulator as that's probably easiest for me to set up and record at the moment but I was looking for help finding download links for the allowed emulator(s) and for any suitable recording/timing software as well. Any help on this or just general speed running help is much appreciated.
PS Once I have an emulator how do I get/run the game on it.
