Pokémon is a phenomenon that made itself very famous in a short time a few years ago. Pokémon Red is part of the first generation of the games of that series that were made.

Up until this day, thousands of Pokémon fans have analyzed the games, finding out the exact formulae of how each battle situation in these games works out, how experience and levels and everything works, and what are the most effective ways to battle.

The most sought Pokémon of the first generation is Mew, which is normally available only in officially organized events. Mew is capable of learning every possible fighting technique. This movie catches Mew wild due to a game glitch.

Every single attack in this game can miss, including the “never misses” attacks, and as a result, this is a no-damage run: no single harmful attack lands on the Pokémon the player uses. This is called “luck manipulation” on this site.

We recommend reading the author’s comments on this movie. This movie is about 5 minutes faster than the previous author’s movie due to using the most unrecommended choice, Charmander, as the starting Pokémon instead of Squirtle, and also for using the most unlikely found-in-wilderness Pokémon, Mew.

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.
