[Acid Plays] Pokemon Red Speed Run

Hey everyone, this'll be a bit of a different video from the usual gameplays. I've been kind of fascinated by speedruns lately, was going to post about the rabbit hole I dug into recently hearing more about it, some great ones I watched etc but thought hey, why not attempt my own for a bit just to see what it's like and thinking "how hard can it be", well I was in for a surprise.

I'm doing this on an emulator and following a classic Pokemon Red run in this video of the current world record. Classic means that they didn't use any kind of manipulations to alter the stats of the Pokemon, odds of catching the one they want, and stuff like that which suited well for me as I don't wanna get into all that and classic is going to be the way to go for me. I downloaded the current WR timers as well which show on the page to the right but I didn't keybind all the buttons to hit the timer when I get to a certain checkpoint. Needless to say the beginning has already gotten really difficult and I can barely even remember the full run nor how to do it most efficiently, so I'm assuming this is going to take A LOT of attempts. I'll be needing to look at the WR also to assist me on knowing what to do though as I haven't spent enough time studying it prior, just wrote some notes on some important things he does at certain timestamps so I don't forget or miss it in the video. Haven't really gotten that far yet, though. Many times during these many attempts I keep failing either by having my Pokemon faint or doing something wrong at some point gambling on getting ahead of the WR and not succeeding. The last attempt was my best so far, was even ahead of the WR for a few minutes until everything started going down the hill. :P

Voiceover on most of the attempts, some of the first ones not cause I failed with some settings again, but combined all attempts together lately to make it into one video.

@acidyo, Pokémon, this name itself is World Famous and watched the Pokémon Cartoon series when i was a kid.

Yes, this game is different because of it's Classical Journey, nowadays many prefer Virtual Reality Games.

But these kind of games are awesome because it reminds Old Days.

Hope that you enjoyed this whole Session.

Have a great time ahead and stay blessed.

I still have my old Pokemon Blue, which I play once in a blue moon on my GameCube/Gameboy Player, and I've never beaten it. This game is the ultimate grind, but I do enjoy it sometimes.

beaten how? gotten past the pokemon league or caught all 150?

Neither goal acheived. Mainly I just want to finish the main story objective some day without evolving my pokemon too early.

I usually spend all my time roaming around leveling up and searching for the pokemon that supposedly exists there to catch, but never shows up.

Hahah aws that's so cute, reminded me of when I first got my gameboy color and was roaming around forever to explore the zones and pokemon fully before moving on to the next part. :')

Keep milking the chain with your crap posts. Hope you feel good about it.

FYI, little kids like pokemon... but there's not much of a little kid community here on Hive... maybe you wish there was based on recent comments... but guess what, even little kids don't give a fuck about your pokemon game! Sorry to break it to you.

Every vote you got here is unauthentic. Total bullshit. This post demonstrates the main problem with this blockchain.

We have so many games on Hive and here you are playing POKEMON!! Really...

stop replying to yourself and go add some comments to jaynie's posts so she won't ban you from her discord

go back to jaynie whiteknight, I'm gonna increase the pace of posting the more people call me greedy, got enough of your bullshit

I never called you greedy. But that is an easy way for you to just ignore everything I said isn't it?

jaynie initially did and you appeared out of nowhere after, tell your master she's not going to win this fight, not even leave a dent

"Win this fight" lol, bro we're not playing Pokemon with you here? ...you do know thais right? This isn't a Poke battle that you win or lose.

This is you getting called out and not having a single rebuttal. You're doing great so far.

I don't need to defend myself to someone I don't know and to a crazy person who's muted by most respected members of the community, piss off.
