Pokemon Glitches are wonderful, and it's really interesting to see them.
However, there is a major problem, or at least i have one: A lot of the glitches require you to actually play the game, or at least beat the majority of it.
Now, I know this sounds foregone, but this is actually a big deal for whoever starts a new game from scratch, and doesn't want to waste time with a game he has already beaten thousands of times.
Let's think to the most famous glitch: Missingno. Before encountering him, you have to reach Cinnabar Island. That place is actually really close to end-game.
Now I know that today's emulators can import savegames, and you can witness a lot of the glitches pretty quickly, and that's what i've done in the past. But I was wondering… Considering the stunning amount of glitches and ACE exploits this game has, isn't there a way to glitch your way throught it, and get access to most of the content without actually playing it?
We witnessed people reaching the Hall of Fame just right from the start of the game,. That's impressive, but this doesn't give you a proper Pokemon party, doesn't unlock all cities and ends with an overflowed item inventory, so really the whole thing is just for looking at the credits, but it's far from being in a playable state.
So, here there are my questions:
Starting from a brand-new savefile, what are the quickest ways to:
1) The first and most important: Get a Pokemon with Fly (or an item that allows you to do that) and get access to all cities on the fly board (without visiting them first)
Is that even possible? Basically, what i'm asking is the quickest way to unlock the whole map and being able to free-roam it.
2) Getting an item or any other glitch that allows one to skip trainer battles.
We're in a brand new savefile, that means, the map is crowded with people that wants to fight you. That's a huge problem, and you're likely to be interrupted pretty often because of long-rage trainers.
Brock Through Walls sounds nice but can't be carried forever, or inside places like gyms for example.
3) Getting 8F and the required party for bootstrap code
8F can really come in handy as cheating tool to do… well… pretty much everything. It gives you access to all of the items and you can get all the Pokemons in short time.
With these 3 steps satisfied, I think that most of the game's content can be accessed.
Do you think is it possible to do all that in a short amount of time?
Save corruption glitches are allowed, but after abusing them, there has to be a way to revert the side-effects of the corruption (like the massive pokemon party) otherwise the game will be unplayable.
