Pokémon: Pearl Version is part of the 4th generation of Pokémon games, after Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald. For the first time in the main series, it features 3D graphics and online play over the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. In addition, there are 107 new Pokémon to catch.

In this run, MKDasher beats the game fast using luck manipulation and a major glitch that loads the overworld map incorrectly, allowing him to venture outside the level boundaries. For more information, see the author's comments.


There is also an alternate YouTube stream featuring commentary by the author.


Note: Due to an emulation error there are moments of flickering black pixels across the ground.

Although it is possible to warp large distances within the game by using out-of-bounds glitches, making it possible to skip directly to the end, this movie refrains from saving and resetting, which is required to perform that sort of long-distance warp. However, glitches are used for other purposes, such as bypassing obstacles.
