Pokémon: Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald form the third generation of Pokémon, after Pokémon: Gold and Silver. Noticeable differences include the graphics and interface, Pokémon abilities, and running shoes that allow the player to move around much faster in the outside overworld before getting the bike.
FractalFusion and GoddessMaria complete the game in a mere 1:31:45, 3 minutes and 22 seconds faster than the previous Sapphire Version run. Instead of using Machop/Machoke, this run now uses Taillow/Swellow, which is obtained far earlier in the game, also has Guts as an ability, and has powerful moves early on and throughout. The movie also uses advanced methods of luck manipulation with the help of RNG analysis. For more details, see the submission text.

Note: To play the vbm, you need to have Real Time Clock on and use Flash 128k as Save Type. Real Time Clock is for sync, while Flash 128k is to prevent the game from giving a white screen.

This improvement of nearly 22 minutes over the previous TAS is the result of thorough research and testing by the author. A new strategy allows ending the game with only 5 badges by corrupting the memory, allowing her to execute arbitrary code. This was possible due to a switch to the Japanese version, which has a larger character set to use for the PC Box payload. For more information, see the author's comments.
We also have a run that completes the entire game without major glitches.
The baseline tab shows the default movie beating the game as fast as possible without any special conditions.
