I wrote this guide by using the translation site because I am not good at English.
Please pardon if there are strange parts in this text.

Overview of Achievement
I began Geoms boosting after completely upgraded to each Drones and each Supers.
This Achievement was unlocked when the current possession amount is about 864,000 Geoms.
Perhaps, it seems this Achievement will unlock when accumulative acquisition amount of Geoms exceeds 1 million. (It isn't current possession amount of Geoms)
Therefore, you will be able to purchase any upgrades without being aware of this Achievement.

I think Endurance (level 35) and Super Sequence (level 49) are suitable levels for Geom boosting.
According to this method, earning efficiency will be about 30,000~40,000 Geoms per hour (depend on your skill). But it will be considerably grind that repeat these levels for 30 hours.

Therefore, I recommend the following method.
Although this method require turbo pad, it is possible to completely leave without any control, and you can earn about 20,000~25,000 Geoms per hour.

Geom boosting method (require turbo pad)
1. Select Super Sequence (level 49)
2. Select Collect Drone and any Super (If your pad can turbo LT, I recommend Clone Super)
3. Pause after level began
4. Tie up LS and RS with a rubber band
5. Fix to hold down the turbo X button (If your pad can turbo LT, also fix to hold down LT)
6. Quit pause menu and leave it as much as you like

Please watch this video for more information.
I am aware that the image quality of this video is not good.
However, you should be able to understand the process of this method.

Supplementary of this video:
I am using HORI PAD EX2 TURBO in this video, but I don't recommend this pad because it is often glitchy.
If you looking for newly turbo pad for gaming, I recommend other models.

Got this grinding Stage 49 for 12+ hours. It really sucks.

Max/min guy here. So I'm all about speed and efficiency.

Collect + Clone

Kill 3-4 then die as soon as shield runs out. This phase is not time efficient.

Red Squares-
This is the money stage. Try to make a huge outer loop so you don't lose any Geoms. Then smaller circles as there are less enemies. When red square stop spawning, don't worry about the Red squares that get out of your circle loop. Don't waste precious time redirecting your shooting to shoot them down.1000 geoms/minute

(If you die here, when you respawn activate Clone on Yellow objects. Get a few points, die and start over.)

Yellow objects-
Get through this without dying. I just shoot in the corner. It's not really worth risking gather geoms here. The most you'll get is 10-20. But if you die here, it really slows things down. I hate this stage, but it's so short it's worth going through it to keep extra lives for later.

Blue Squares-
Find pattern to survive. Then loop around the remaining and shoot for major points. However unlike the previous stage there's more risk here. Since if you die before the end, you won't go many points. And through 1000's of playthroughs you will die here.
1000 geoms/minute

After the 4th wave, use your clone. Then use the 2nd when it wears off. Survive and get lots of points.

Floaty blue/red orbs-
Die here. This takes forever and not worth many geoms.
(Game ends here if you had an unexpected death beforehand.)

Red charging orbs-
Real money stage. Get the triplefire. Use your last clone! Shoot at the first red orb and grab the geom. Then move towards the next two that you see and grab those. Move toward a corner so they can't spawn behind you. Kill everything and grab asap! Huge points!

Jacks-Loop around and save the center for the end! Also huge geoms!

Green spawns-
Die and "Quick restart"
(All my games end here. I didn't have time to investigate this phase thoroughly.)

You should get 5000 geoms/4minutes.
860,000 geoms needed after upgrades. 172 times perfectly = 688 minutes = 11.47 hours.

Good luck! Really sucks!
