This is a tool-assisted speedrun. For more information, see http://tasvideos.org/2341M.html

This movie has been obsoleted by http://tasvideos.org/3358M.html. TAS originally published on 2013-03-20.

The TASVideos record movie (http://tasvideos.org/1860M.html) for Pokémon: Yellow Version uses heavy glitches that lead to Ash cataloging every Pokémon in slightly over a minute. Is there any way to get more ridiculous than that? In this run, using nothing but the Game Boy buttons and tool-assisted precision, the game is made to run an arbitrary program (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arbitrar...). For details on how this was achieved, see the author's comments (http://tasvideos.org/3894S.html).

This movie improves upon its predecessor (http://tasvideos.org/2187M.html) by never having to leave Ash's room to gain full control of execution flow. However, that movie has a very different kind of payload (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Payload_...) at the end, and is worth watching as well. Both movies apply the idea that TASing is programming input (http://tasvideos.org/2380M.html) rather than playing the game. For a list of more runs that embody this idea, see this post (http://tasvideos.org/forum/p/345831#3...).

As this run was submitted on March 14 - "Pi Day (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pi_Day)", it contains many, many references to π. See how many you can find!
