Not wrongly linked console entry. The prototypes were on original GB hardware as opposed to the GBC.

Linked both Debug and Non-Debug builds to this entry but that will probably change if it ever gets achievements.
3 Aug 2018
To play the Minigames exept the one with Pikachu you need to use the version with the debug menu.The Debug menu opens when you're in the titlescreen and press select.
3 Aug 2018
No achievements for exploring beta johto via debug mode walk through walls :(
4 Aug 2018
All Achievements except the Minigames can only unlock in the normal mode NOT in the Debug mode.

Use the Header-Fixed roms to play this Prototype.

How can I catch a Shiny in the Demo?
19 Aug 2018
Shinys appear random in the wild and can caught like all others. Because there is no shiny animation you should turn the color on to see if the pokemon has another color.
19 Aug 2018
Defeat all 6 Trainers and the Achievement doesn't triggered so far.
20 Aug 2018
Try to beat them in the order they appear. First the one with paras, after, meowth, magby, ledyba, slowking and clefairy. It didn't trigger until I beat them in this order.
20 Aug 2018
@jos beat the trainer in this order and the Achievement didn't triggered.

Using Header-Fixed roms still doesn't allow me to play these from RAVisualBoyAdvance - 0.57. Do I have to use RetroArch? I deleted RetroArch the other day so if that's the case I'll just pass on this set
10 Jun 2019
You can play this set on RAVBA. It only seems your rom isn't linked so just try to find another one.
20 Aug 2019
Some of these like musical pikachu, pokecross or nobody can stop me are unachievable on retroarch (any core)
