Not to be confused with ??????????.

? is a glitch Pokémon which is actually 25 different species, each exactly the same as the other. They are blank filler data in between Celebi and Treecko, index numbers 252-276. They also have the same exact physical base stats as another Pokémon, Deoxys.

The cry of this "Pokémon" is that of Unown. Its only attack is Tackle and it is incapable of learning any others. It has no Ability (-------), with a description of "No special ability" shown on the status screen.

Its Pokédex entry is nothing more than garbage, including many characters that would not be encountered through the normal course of play. This is because the Pokédex data is invalid and points to garbage data which is then represented as characters. This can also cause emulators to crash. Its footprint is a generic paw-print with a question mark inside.

?'s sprite was coded originally to represent an unseen Pokémon in the Pokédex, as seen in pre-release screenshots of Ruby and Sapphire; however, developers later changed the sprite to that of ??????????.

? is a very stable glitch. It does not cause any undesired effects. However, attempting to cheat moves onto it will cause save data to corrupt and be deleted.

It can't be transferred to Generation IV via Pal Park, with the game giving the message "You can't transfer this Pokémon".
