Speedrunning has become an art form, and the gaming community as a whole has been amazed by the skills of some very talented individuals as they beat games at speeds previously thought as impossible. This latest feat by Werster, a speedrunner, has completed a Pokemon Shining Pearl speedrun in under an hour, or 50 minutes and thirty-six seconds to be more precise. Check out Werster's explanation below:

Ladies and gentleman, we got em. The remakes are so broken you can beat them in under an hour!

Glitches used in this run, in order: Menu storage (and double/triple variants of it), Door Storage, Cutscene Clipping to OoB, Trainer-Menu Storage, Poke Doll Battles, Surf on Land, Early E4, Fast Cynthia.

This run was far from perfect, but I believe it's the first ever sub 1, so really happy with the progress made.

Shoutouts to the speedrunning community around this game, the past week has been a blast and so many different people have contributed towards so much in this game in such a short space of time. It's been fantastic.

Blessed game.

The fact that the game was completed in under fifty-one minutes is amazing enough, but to think that the times could get even better is insane. Who knows how fast a Pokemon Shining Pearl speedrun will be completed in? Can it be beaten in under forty minutes or even thirty minutes? Who knows!
