No Damage Dealt

The Pacifist Run

Is it possible to beat Pokémon - the game designed around using your team to beat everyone else's Pokémon into submission - without actually harming any Pokémon directly?

 

This challenge requires an awful lot of patience and thinking outside of the box. For example, how do you defeat a Kakuna without dealing damage, with a Bulbasaur that only knows Tackle and Growl? You'll find out in the video below.

Another playthrough from the excellent SmallAnt, with the following friendly rules:

 

1. No direct damage allowed  (i.e. damage dealing moves)

2. Damage inflicted from statuses  (burn/poison)  is allowed
