What is the trick to earn Wall Jumping Ninja? I wall-jumped my way out of the chasm where I encounter the Etecoons but the achievement did not pop for me. Do I need to wait for them to start demonstrating the technique?

Draygon alternate kill is letting it grab you and electrocuting it by grappling onto one of these electric pods on the wall.

Finalmente, 200% completo!

Interestingly, nothing from doing GT Code any% counts towards the achievements. I'd only collected the bare minimum (plus screw attack) to do GT code, received no achievements, no achievements for beating the game either.
27 May 1:30 2020
GT code gifts you items and health, I imagine that's considered cheating thus, disables achievements entirely.

Mastered!!! My favorite game of all time deserved to get mastered, and this achievement set was a fun challenge, especially the 3-tanks run, thankfully i had A LOT of practice with the MB fight.
