Can You Beat Emerald with ONLY Mega Rayquaza?

  • เผยแพร่เมื่อ 31 มี.ค. 2024
  • This is a video about how I attempted the hardest challenge ever seen in a Pokémon game.

    i just put music in the video:
    ➤ me (didn't do much)
    ➤ Koro: / wingedkoro
    To everyone asking...
    YES. I accidentally PKHex'd Mega Rayquaza to have the
    ideal nature and perfect IVs in the middle of the game.
    It was an honest mistake and I have no idea how it happened.
    I am not sorry.

    I find it incredible that someone managed to beat emerald with the Pokemon that was so bad that smogon had to make a brand new tier called “nothing goes” where you can only use terrible Pokemon like zacian just to make a tier that it could fit in. Truly amazing.
