Pokemon games are all about strategy, knowing what moves to use at the right time, which Pokemon is best suited for any given situation, pressing the A button to use Surf to win, there’s a lot going on. But Can You Beat Pokemon Emerald Without Taking Any Damage?

Can You Beat The Pitt Without Taking Any Damage? (in text form)
I hate doing this but I’m going to start with some information. First thing, I wanted to do this in Leaf Green because it’s the best game in the series, Fire Red is obviously the worst, but Gamechamp3000 did this in Pokemon Red, that generation’s already been done. So I picked Emerald. Next bit of important information, I like Pokemon, the games are fun, but I’m an idiot. I don’t know anything about Special Attacks vs Physical Attacks, or the IQ points or whatever the profanity of a Pokemon. Third, I did this in an emulator and allowed myself to speed up the game. All this does is save time, it has no impact on whether the challenge can actually be done or not. Fifth and last point, I’m a coward. Gamechamp did this the way a man would do it, any damage means you start the run over. Smallant1 gave himself some leeway, allowing himself to save after every gym, but that was it. I’m sure you’ve figured this out by now, that I am about the furthest thing from a man that there is. As long as you’re not in a battle or talking to someone, you can save the game at any point, and I 100% used that to my advantage as often as possible.
With all that boring nonsense out of the way, the challenge can begin. I named myself, and this is gonna blow your mind, Paul. I’ve always wondered why my parent organism stored me in the back of that truck during the move, seems kinda dangerous. The neighbor’s daughter left one of her balls on the floor, very unsanitary, and I had to choose my monster. I went with Torchic because everyone knows the fire fighting type is the best type in the game, just like the stealth archer in Skyrim. Nobody’s tired of it. And I took damage for the first time. When that happens, within the emulator itself, I press the reset button to virtually reset the Gameboy Advance, load the only save file, and try again. The Bidoof is only a level 2, but that’s still high enough that 1-shot kills are impossible. I don’t know what the percentages are, I didn’t care to check. I’ll break down a door with an axe before I check to see if the door is unlocked.
To get through this, the stars must align for me to be able to land 2-3 hits on the Zigzagoon without it damaging me. That means it either uses growl or its attack just misses. Once it ended, I named my Pokemon Dinkster because I’d need all the help from God I could get, and went to meet May in Route 103. So, the thing about this run is that it’s almost a 1-Hit KO only run. You can’t take damage if the enemy doesn’t get a chance to attack you back. And to achieve that 1-Hit Knock Out, you’re pretty much required to be a significant level above whatever you’re facing. Super Effective Moves help and are useful, but they’re not always an option.
To that end, my primary objective early on was to push the Dinkster beyond his digital and mortal limits. My Torchic would need to be a much higher level if I ever wanted a chance at beating this game. At first, I was only going to use the fast-forward to speed through the game reset, but it became clear that my sanity would not remain intact doing it this way. I compromised with the voices in my head and allowed me to speed up the game when leveling for experience.
