Pokémon: Gold Version and Silver Version form the second generation of Pokémon, after Red Version and Blue Version. New features include full color, a new region called Johto, and 100 all new Pokémon.

This run by bobmario511 completes the game in under an hour by manipulating luck and abusing bugs to corrupt the memory and save data. One of these bugs allows him to bring up the Pokémon menu to distort map tiles into garbage blocks that are sometimes possible to walk on, allowing the player character to get to places he normally shouldn't. For more information, see the author's comments.

We also have a run of this game that avoids all use of memory corruption.

Please read the welcome page if you haven't already done so. It explains the rules and methods that apply to all of these movies, particularly the use of savestates and frame advance. Also refer to our Glossary to understand terms we use, such as TAS or other unfamiliar terms.
