I don't know why nobody has mentioned this (yet), but there IS a way past Oak/Coffee Guy (A.K.A. "Progress Prevention Glitch" as I've seen it called). Simply perform the bad save after delivering the Parcel. Sure, you lose Pikachu (forever AFAIK), but you gain memory editing power.

You can later remove the corrupt Pokemon team by catching a Pokemon (not sure if Pikachu counts (yet)), and depositing anything invalid into the PC boxes and Releasing them. Or keep them, I don't care. :) Not sure the side effects of switching any leftover invalids around in the party are, but I caught a legitimate Ditto at some point and its OT ID stopped matching my Trainer ID. (Possibly because I fiddle with the items, not sure).

Notes of interest are the Surfboard item, giving you access to Cinnabar Island very early (and a chance to catch Ditto lol).

Progress Prevention isn't the SRAM glitch.

Progress Prevention is that under the right circumstances (such as performing the SRAM glitch, mostly known as the "save corruption glitch"), the game's progression is halted by Oak.
Your remark is still correct, but it is also possible to use any form of Wrong Warping (easy using the Item pack-powered memory edition and "last exit" doors) to skip Coffee Guy.

Lastly, you almost certainly modified your TID by "fiddling with the items", since items past the 20th slot are just a part of the game's RAM interpreted as items. Modifying them does modify game data (such as TID :P)

What I'm trying to say is, fight Gary, deliver the Parcel to Oak, THEN perform the SAVE bug (without having saved during all that). Which is a little more time consuming on normal hardware due to the timing (during saving), but possible.



^No Pikachu present, unfortunately. :(


Also, I haven't gotten the WTW scenario to work out of this. So if somebody could produce step by step instructions or a short video, that would be appreciated.

Yeah, but that doesn't fall under "prevented progress" since nothing prevents your progress. That's what I meant.
I don't mean what you said is useless, since I don't remember this being documented anywhere. I might just add that to the wiki.
