Normal gameplay involves finding and battling other trainers and Masters, eventually becoming the Champion and earning the Legendary Cards.

However, gifvex instead decided to glitch out the first battle and confuse the game into reading deck contents as code. This allows gifvex to reach the game's credits in just under 3 minutes. For more information, see the authors' comments.

We also have a similarly short run of the sequel, Pokémon TCG2.


You can watch the complete run being played back on a console.

Rather than spending countless hours collecting cards to fight the various Masters in this game, FractalFusion and p4wn3r take one of the basic decks, and with a whole lot of luck manipulation, deal out a series of crushing victories in rapid succession in order to become the Pokémon TCG Champion.
