    its pretty fuckin' lame that you can easily lock yourself out of this one if you don't know about it before hand. The only to way get another shot is to completely start the game over. REALLY LAME.

    Worst achievment ever, had to restart my game to get it lmao

    If I've walked into the area earlier and battled snorlax does this mean I can't do the achievement now?
    WKGames 20 May 2022 04:31
    This can easily be cheesed by simply using Cycling Road to bypass Routes 12-15 until the end of the game and then coming back with over-leveled Pokemon, just remember to bring a Pokemon that knows "Cut" as others have said.

    Update to my own earlier question. You can catch Snorlax earlier then leave and return later to complete the challenge

    I was about to come here and say that my achievement didn't unlock but I realised I didn't battle the girl above the ledge on Route 15. But by this point, like an idiot, I had already left the area, expecting the achievement to perhaps trigger upon passing into Fuchsia City. So I had to do the whole gauntlet AGAIN and thankfully it did trigger! Just recounting my trauma. But, yeah, definitely easier if you avoid the route and come back after all the gym badges, or even after the Pokémon League.

    Note: As lovelessrapture said, you can enter from Vermillion City to get Snorlax out of the way first before starting this task (Make sure you have the Pokéflute!). And if you have Surf, you can also sneak past from the upper area to get the Super Rod without being seen, just so you can continue with everything else before returning to this path later. And as mentioned in the comments previously, make sure you have Cut with you when doing this task!

    I wasn't paying attention and I did some route 12 trainers on accident and saved. I hate myself! It took me 4 hours to get to that point, and it will take another 4 to get back!

    Very annoying. Also I might just be dumb but it wasnt very clear to me that I could only use one pokemon throughout the gauntlet so I had to start a new file to do it again.

    You don't have to use just 1 pokemon for the whole gauntlet. I just got the achievement and rotated through my whole team for different fights

    Would it be possible to add a challenge marker and/or a running count on the number of trainers? Might be a nice addition for future players.

    Excellent Training for your Pikachu!

    I don't know why mine didn't trigger. I (barely, it was a struggle) seem to have gotten every trainer (including the one above the ledge) in a single go, though with multiple Pokemon (all but one fainted), yet no achievement.
    The only explanation I have for this, though others claim this to not be an issue, is that I walked into Snorlax (from the west) a long time before I got the PokeFlute and had to leave again.
    I haven't saved in forever so I'm not gonna restart it (especially when I don't even know why it didn't pop in the first place and if it will on another try), which I guess you could say is on me in a way.
    Still, kind of an annoying, unforgiving achievement, so late into the game.

    Is going in the Fishing Guru's house considered "leaving the area"? I'm going to avoid the house until the end, but maybe that can cause the achievement to fail?
    SagaMaximus 15 Jul 2023 16:28
    That was scary, pikachu save me with 2 hp and barely faint poisoned in last trainer.

    so do i not need pikachu?
    WKGames 1 Oct 2023 17:16
    Pikachu isn’t required for this achievement, but given you’re going to need to beat the Elite Four solo with Pikachu to master this set, you should be over -leveling Pikachu anyways
    MarvellousDazza 2 Oct 2023 16:20
    So I left this until the very end. I managed to do this achievement with a Lvl 100 Pikachu, Lvl 52 Blastoise, Lvl 37 Charizard.

    You DON’T have to use only one Pokémon, you can use a full party if you like. You’ll need more than one anyway because you will likely run out of moves.

    Make sure you have a Pokémon who knows Cut (HM01) because you’ll need to defeat 2 trainers who are hidden away.

    Fly to Lavender Town and save your game just to be safe. Then head South and that’s when this achievement will begin.

    On my run I used the Poke Flute for Snorlax and then just ran from the battle because I had already caught him previously. I also DIDN’T go inside the Fishing Guru’s House.

    You should face, 37 different trainers during this gauntlet run but if your Pokémon are over levelled it’s pretty straight forward.

    This image here will help you see the route, it shows you where all the trainers are standing.


    (Right click on the image and save it. That way you’ll see the image more clearly and you can zoom in)

    Does the archiving only start as soon as you trigger the first trainer?
