Pokémon: Blue Version 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 favor of activating a similar glitch through more conventional means - if systematic breaking of the game can be called conventional.

This is an improvement of 4:01.98 over the previous run in this category, which used a couple different glitches and is worth checking out as well.

It is recommended that you read the author's comments to fully enjoy what's being done here.

Pokémon: Blue Version 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 using save data corruption (as evidenced in the run of the Yellow Version), but this run avoids such techniques in favor of activating an entirely different glitch.

This is an improvement of 9:00.78 over the previous run in this category, which used a similar glitch to the more heavily glitched categories. You might want to check out the run that avoids glitched warps for an example of quickly completing the game without corrupting the memory.

Unfortunately, the currently planned Bulbasaur/Pidgey route runs into this problem in the Saffron City Pokemon Center - the game must be reset before healing or talking to other NPCs. Recorded in Bizhawk 1.6

This is an unoptimized proof-of-concept showing that using the Brock Skip glitch to enable walking through walls is possible in UE.

A new glitch in Pokemon Blue (and presumably Red) that involves using the black-out variant of the Trainer-Fly glitch and then talking to the old man of Missingno. fame. Recorded in Bizhawk 1.5.3. If someone can find the source of the junk data and turn it into something useful, as with MrWint's current glitched run, this could lead to a substantial improvement. The gameplay itself is far from optimized, Squirtle should be able to knock out Charmander with 3 Critical Hits and a wild Pikachu could knock out Charmander with 2 Critical Hits.
