Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl have only been available for ten days, but speedrunners are already smashing it out of the park when it comes to beating the new games as quickly as possible.

YouTuber Werster has today shared a video showing the game being completed in just 33 minutes and ten seconds. At the time of writing, it’s believed to be the world record for an ‘any%’ speedrun of the game, and it’s pretty mindblowing to watch.

As you can imagine, all sorts of tricks and glitches are used to cut down the game’s playing time (which, according to users submitting playthrough times on HowLongToBeat, would usually take the average player around 24 hours). Indeed, the vast majority of the game including Trainer battles and even Elite Four matches are skipped entirely thanks to some crazy glitches, and menu tricks such as turning off the sound (which apparently stops jingles from loading) are also used to shave off the seconds.
