Game news Legends Pokémon Arceus: a Frenchman breaks the speedrun world record, here is his team
For many years, the speedrun mobilizes many communities. This discipline, which consists of finishing the game as quickly as possible and which comes in several categories, is also the subject of fierce competition on Pokémon Legends: Arceus. And it is a Frenchman who is world champion for the moment.
- A French world champion!
- A very demanding discipline
A French world champion!
The world record has again fallen on Pokémon Legends: Arceus and is for a Frenchman. It was discipline specialist Saiyan Five who managed to complete the game in just over four hours (4:01:05). A very impressive feat that requires a very precise knowledge of the game. Why? As a reminder, Pokémon Legends Arceus is a game in a semi-open world: that is to say that the player can roam freely in areas connected to the same central place, but which are not connected to each other. To unlock them, you must advance in the adventure by increasing your researcher rank.
However, to fulfill your rank of researcher, you have to carry out Pokédex tasks: small missions related to each Pokémon such as catching ten, using such an attack several times, etc. Once these tasks are completed, they bring research points which act as experience points necessary for the leveling up of the rank of researcher. To hope to have access to the last zone, you must therefore raise your researcher level to level 5 to hope to finish the game.
A very demanding discipline
Do you see where I’m coming from? To complete the game as quickly as possible, you must therefore have a very precise idea of the Pokémon tasks to be done while calculating whether they are profitable in relation to the time invested. Moreover, we do not even talk about the different paths that trainers must favor… A practice with multiple factors, as evidenced by the 19-page document shared by Victor (another follower of the discipline), which makes it possible to realize even more the feat achieved by Saiyan. Here is his team when he finishes the game:
Gone are the days of the first world records at 7:30 a.m.! Unfortunately for Saiyan, he doesn’t manage to fall below the symbolic threshold of four hours. In any case, we hope he won’t be caught anytime soon, but it’s off to a bad start since two Americans are on his trail. halqery is at 04:03:31, while Oh_Snap is at 04:04:11.
