Isn't this the exact same thing as Glitch???? File:Ani234MS.gifMERRY File:Ani385MS.gif CHRISTMASFile:Ani225MS.gif 02:17, 20 December 2007 (UTC)

No. A glitch is the general term for an error or programming oversight in a video game. A glitch Pokémon is an error or programming oversight in a Pokémon video game that can be raised, taught attacks, and battled. Missingno. Master 02:19, 20 December 2007 (UTC)

Glitch Pokémon (In RBY anyway) are not overall harmless--they may corrupt the save file (possibly permanently) upon encountering them. Capturing them is harmless, some 'dex entries will freeze the game, but the only danger is seeing them in-battle. At least, according to this guide on GameFAQs. Any thoughts on this?

Well, I do have a thought on this. I'm afraid I might get blocked for wording it exactly as it lays out in my mind, though, so here's the general gist of it: The FAQ LIES! Glitch Pokémon are completely HARMLESS! Its the moves some of them can know that do the damage (.4 starting with the move commonly nicknamed Super Glitch has gained it a horrible reputation, given Super Glitch's exceptionally undesirable effect of, worst case scenario, destroying your saved game). Now don't get me wrong, this FAQ is astonishingly knowelegeble on many 1st generation glitches, but the claims that Missingno. can destroy the game? Absolutely false, even moreso for 'M and everything else. -- Glitch Pokémon. Official Pokémon. There is no real difference between the two. In my opinion, the two should be considered equal!-- quoted by Missingno. Master

Well, it's tecnically the Glithces/Glitch Pokémon that have the moves, so they are dangerous. --Theryguy512 11:50, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, the capslock really convinced me that Gunbladelad's cartridge imploded on its own. Of course glitch Pokemon are 100% harmless. Silly question-- how many times have you encountered one of them on an original cartridge? Just wondering. Billybobfred 01:54, 22 June 2008 (UTC)

Other Glitches?

I don't know if I should have asked this here, but it seemed like the right place. What about the Glitches that Trainers have when you try to encounter them via Gameshark? There is a way to capture those glitches without the use of the Capture Trainer's Pokémon Code, so should these glitches have pages? --Boxman 15:34, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

Notability criteria, redux

Over at Project GlitchDex I recall that we decided that Generation I glitch Pokémon are "notable" if they can be caught without using a Gameshark, so we kept the number of articles at the 24 listed in the table here. However, recently I'm seeing articles like $ and ...... appear. These glitches cannot be caught in-game without a cheat device. Now, I'm not for deleting them per se, but y'all do realize that there's about a hundred more out there, right? abwayax (t/c) 02:35, 9 December 2008 (UTC)
