Should this article be a stub? It does not explain how and why the glitch works, other than a vague description.--Frostagin 18:50, 24 October 2009 (UTC)

I agree, I don't know if it's really possible to figure out how this works but the article could definitely be longer, I think. ZestyCactus 19:12, 24 October 2009 (UTC)


This article is quite pitiful. A section on Q's page would suffice. --SnorlaxMonster 03:43, 9 December 2009 (UTC)

This article is basically a copy/paste of the section on Q's page anyways. I'm redirecting it. ZestyCactus 04:12, 9 December 2009 (UTC)

????? (FF) can pull this off, too

I was fooling around with a ????? I got from the Celebi egg glitch, and for laughs, I deposited a Pokémon above ????? to see if the Q glitch worked here, too. When I saw my party, specifically my Dratini, it would appear that the Q glitch does, in fact, work in Crystal. I haven't checked to see if it works in Gold/Silver, but I would assume so. Here's a before and after shot of my team. In the after shot, my Swinub became a Dratini and my Feraligatr became a Swinub. It would appear that the recipient receives the donor's gender, as well.

After a bit of experimentation, it would appear that unstable hybrid Pokémon in Generation II use the back sprite of the donor, instead of just its palette. SkyEmerald (talk) 23:04, 2 October 2015 (UTC)
