If youre looking to speedrun Pokémon Scarlet or Violet, heres a cheeky strategy for you.

I tested this out myself with some difficulty (Id totally forgotten there was a sync button on the Joy-Con?!), but eventually got it working.

The double speed only seems to work when running at an angle – straight ahead wont cut it – so its not the most convenient way to get through the game, zig-zagging across Paldea.

It also doesnt seem to work with your ride-on Pokémon – only by running around by foot.

And if you thought the game struggled with pop-in at normal speeds… well double speed isnt pretty.
