Pokémon Red is part of the first generation of games within its famous series, known for having a very large number of beneficial glitches. In fact, the game can be completed in less than one minute of in-game time by save data corruption as evidenced in the run of the Yellow Version, but that is not used here in favour of activating a similar glitch through more conventional means - if systematic breaking of the game can be called conventional.

This is an improvement of 37:56.40 over the previous run of Blue in this category. The previous run used entirely different glitches and is worth checking out as well.

It is recommended that you read the author's comments as well as the discussion relating to the movie to fully enjoy it.

Note: This movie requires VBA rerecording 19. The glitches work differently on other versions of VBA.
