The second Joy-Con makes you twice as fast



The second Joy-Con makes you twice as fast

In Pokémon Crimson and Crimson, you can significantly increase your running speed.

Attention Pokémon Crimson and Crimson fans: Tired of walking slowly? Do you want to leave the place faster and complete stage challenges faster? Then there is now a very easy way to dash twice as fast. What looks like cheap and unrealistic advertising is actually a hardware exploit that only requires a second left Joy-Con.

Pokémon Crimson: Double Joy-Con, Double Speed!

The math is simple: if you use two Joy-Cons at once, you can of course run twice as fast. Why hasn’t anyone thought of this before? Well, it shouldn’t normally work that way, of course, but it does in Pokemon Crimson and Crimson. For now, at least.

How to run faster: To take advantage of the unintended speed boost, you need to connect two Joy-Cons to your Nintendo Switch at the same time. Like registering a second person as a player. Except you just use the second Joy-Con yourself and play single player.

For some reason, left analog stick inputs are being registered by both Joy-Cons – and added together. With the insane result that you can simply run twice as fast.

However, there is a catch: Apparently you can only run twice as fast if you move diagonally. Again, we’re not sure exactly why, but we’ll take what we can get.

Of course, this can be offset by wildly browsing the camera. As explained, for example, by Reddit user Hamsterhead 64, who also created the video above.

This opens up new possibilities: Such tactics should of course be exciting, especially for sprinters. And no, apparently four left Joy-Cons don’t bring four times the speed. This is already hotly debated, at least in the comments on Reddit.

Pokémon Crimson and Crimson are available exclusively on Nintendo Switch since November 18. They offer smooth open world and co-op for the first time, but also encounter technical difficulties. Pop-ins, stuttering frame rate drops, and an acute lack of detail also caused us to downgrade the game to ninth-gen in our GamePro test.

What do you think of the double speed lathe? Have you ever tried?
