I was expecting some kind of unique hack that mixed both

Now knowing well the bonus achievements are interesting

The set is done. Enjoy! Don't break the game too much ;)

Nice work on the set. Sad that some glitches like the dokokashira glitch (green) and 8F coding don't work right in VBA-M. I was hoping that coding pong was gonna be a cheevo on RA.

Is the set considered complete with 250 points ?

Posted: 12 Feb, 2018 05:13
No, there will probably be more added in the future like using strength on the truck and bypassing the Silph Scope.

Posted: 12 Feb, 2018 15:40
Not really, there is still more to be added, if not by me, then by others. Also, there is still which isn't active right now because it still needs to be worked on some more before it goes back up.

Posted: 12 Feb, 2018 16:24
Ok cool. Because I thought for the bonus sets It was decided they wouldn't reach 400 points.

Time for season 2! is back. Now with save protection.

Posted: 22 Feb, 2018 00:48
Save protection? You mean I gotta start a new game and not load up a file I've been using in a normal RA run?

Posted: 22 Feb, 2018 01:34
You're allowed to load your 124 RA save and build from there as long as you don't load your save with 151 mons already on it.

New achievement ideas:
Stuck (10): Go to Lorelei's room with a level <40 Primeape that has 20 PP for Rage and 0 PP for other moves, then save the game. Based on this video:

Interesting (1): Cut tall grass using Cut.
My Luck Is So Bad (10): Fail to catch a Pokemon with a Master Ball.

Posted: 25 Feb, 2018 14:07
I really like that Lorelei one, I didn't know about that before.

Probably not the cut one. It is just a free point, and there shouldn't be too many, especially in a bonus set

As for the Master Ball. The myth is that it's a 1 in 256 chance to miss. This wouldn't make a good achievement as it is purely luck.
However, the myth is false anyway. If you look at the actual, disassembled ASM code, the Master Ball bypasses the faulty accuracy check (the one that moves go through) and always succeeds.
You can see the Balls' code here with the Master Ball starting on line 192:
