'''Teru-sama''' (Japanese: '''カビチュウ''' ''Kabichū'') is a [[glitch]] [[item]] that appears in [[Generation II]]. There are 29 variations in {{2v2|Gold|Silver}}, and 26 in {{v2|Crystal}}. It appears to have no other use than to be sold for {{PDollar}}19660. It is kept in <!--either the [[key item]]s or -->the items pocket<!--, depending on the index number-->. Teru-sama is a data filler between actual items in [[Generation II]], like [[Missingno.]] is filler between Pokémon in [[Generation I]].

Teru-sama can literally be translated from Japanese as "Lord Sunshine" or "Master Sunshine", coming from the word ''Teru'' (''Sunshine'' or ''to Shine'') and the suffix ''-sama'' (an honorific that shows extreme respect and is most often translated as "lord" or "master"). It is possible that ''-sama'' is actually a typographic error, and that the name should be ''Teru-tama'', which would translate as "Sunshine Ball", which ties in with the [[GS Ball]].

Reason: Are there any Teru-sama as key items in Crystal?.

The Teru-sama in the Bag

Teru-sama (Japanese: カビチュウ Kabichū) is a dummied-out item that serves as a placeholder for item data in the Generation II games. There are 29 variations in Pokémon Gold and Silver and 26 in Pokémon Crystal. Regardless of variation, it can be sold for PokémonDollar.png19660. Its purpose is akin to Missingno. in the Generation I games.

The Teru-sama is obtained by modifying the Bag's item data to include items with the following hexadecimal index numbers: 06, 19, 2D, 32, 38, 5A, 64, 73GS, 74GS, 78, 81GS, 87, 88, 89, 8D, 8E, 91, 93, 94, 95, 99, 9A, 9B, A2, AB, B0, B3, and BE.

Reason: What is the actual effect of using the Generation I Town Map?
You can discuss this on the talk page.

Teru-sama located at certain index numbers can become actual items when traded from Pokémon Gold and Silver to Pokémon Crystal:

When viewed in Pokémon Stadium 2, the Teru-sama will show up as the corresponding Crystal-exclusive item, even in Gold and Silver.

Two Teru-sama, after being modified to include the USE option onto them, actually have an effect. One brings up the Town Map from Generation I, while the other is the Generation I Poké Flute, which works exactly the same but remains silent.

Name origin

Teru-sama, as the English name, is likely a reference to Teruki Murakawa, a programmer who appears listed on the staff of Pokémon Gold and Silver and Pokémon Crystal under "US Version Staff".

Its Japanese name, カビチュウ Kabichū, could be a corruption of ガービッジ, a wasei-eigo for "garbage". Since it is a placeholder for item data, with no otherwise useful purpose, it can refer to ごみ gomi (also commonly spelled in katakana as ゴミ), the Japanese equivalent of garbage in programming jargon, although ごみ is used to refer to municipal solid waste as well. Of note is that カビ kabi is part of Snorlax's Japanese name, カビゴン Kabigon, while チュウ chū is part of Pichu's, Pikachu's and Raichu's Japanese names.
