I have heard about a glitch pokémon called Flootenkerp, that is a a mix of a mewtwo and a pikachu, and I want to know if it's true. Does anyone knows if it really exists? -- Luke 12 May, 2006

Anyone heard of that glitch in Emerald that allows for the cloning of Pokemon? Should that be documented here? PikamasterADV 31 July, 2006

There no cloning giltch in Emerald. --Philip1992 14:41, 30 August 2006 (UTC)Philip1992

Yes there is. Someone on Serebii.net found it, someone else tried it out & rewrote it in english. http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?t=134181 Slim 18:55, 30 August 2006 (UTC)

Re: Tweaking

I'm going to go ahead and throw the Tweaking glitch into another category, it's listed with the Glitch Pokemon for DP as of now. Feel free to move it back if you wish so. Vekter 17:10, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

1st gen beta item makes HM03 pointless

I found a Hex list online with RBY item values, and I found a key item called ?????, and I used GameShark to put it on my Yellow. When used, the player can surf without a Pokémon. It was likely scrapped before the game was finished. I'm not sure if you need Koga's badge or not, since I already had it, anyway. I just thought it should be mentioned. --250爆発 249ばくはつ 18:04, 29 March 2008 (UTC)

Glitch Trainer Pokemon

I saw an article about this somewhere and I can't seem to find it anymore. So in the meantime this post shall go here. My name in the game right now is ??!! male sign twice, female sign. Now the main point is that Bulbapedia doesn't talk about the two glitch pokemon that I've encountered via the Missingno. glitch. With this name executing the Missingno. glitch, the trainers that I end up fighting are: Channeler, CoolTrainer (Male), and Blaine, the gym leader. They have six pokemon and all are the same and as follows: A glitch pokemon I dubbed L8 (true name is what seems to be a right triangle,katakana symbol, 2 glitch boxes, followed by an 8). It seems to be the rock type, because grass moves are effective, and normal attacks are not. Its two attacks are Tackle and Screech. And for some reason, it changes backround music to some weird tune. It has no cry other than the changing of music. After which is followed up with a glitch Nidorino. It knows Razor Wind, Horn Attack, Tackle, and TM48 (the glitch explosion). Then the trainer pulls out a classic Missingno. (2 water guns and sky attack). Then another glitch pokemon which I dubbed Pokemon N (True Name: PKMN symbols 3 glitch boxes, then the letter N). Its cry is the tune for the Song move. It knows Tackle and Leer. After that one, a completely normal Flareon comes up. Then another glitch Nidorino pops up. After you defeat that one the match ends and you earn money. Why do these two pokemon show up, and why does the music change is all I want to know. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by MrMcMan (talkcontribs).

I've heard of this happening, stuff like wild Oaks and Cooltrainers. If you have screens to prove it, add a section, but write it encyclopedically. Not as a story that happened to you, but neutrally so that anyone who's encountered similar can add to the topic... Y'know? And sign your name next time, dude. Tom Temprotran 07:57, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

I would add images and such...if only I knew how to get good quality ones. I have a printer/copier/scanner hooked up to my computer, but I'm not sure how to get it so that only the gameplay image comes up, and not any of the background (such as the gameboy itself, my hands, the room, etc.). If you could e-mail me or somehow send me this information, I would be more than happy to put up images and whatnot.(E-mail: [email protected]) --MrMcMan 7:22pm(Central Time) November 15, 2006

Email sent. Also, ~~~~ signs your name better than having to check the date/time of your posts. Just type it after every Talk Page post you make, and you'll have no problems, like this: Tom Temprotran 06:59, 16 November 2006 (UTC)

I have had this happen on my BLUE VERSION. It has to do with your name. Animine 22:45, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

Here we are: http://archives.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Image:Wild_Prof._Oak.JPG The video i took the screen from: http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=lQHTKF7q98M His website explaining how to do it: http://pokegodmaster.tripod.com/Oakinred/

"u66865rue45" does not seem to be a glitch that can be caught with any specific method -- the website proving its existance, http://www.trsrockin.com/linkcable.html, only states its name and nothing else, and states no constant method of obtaining it -- unlike glitches such as Z4, X - x, and LM4, which can all be found with the Mew glitch. u66865rue45 probably does exist, and there probably is a way to find it, but until that method can be stated, it should not be mentioned. Also, on the source website, other glitches with long unreadable names are mentioned, meaning that this glitch is probably a random result of a link cable being pulled. (Also, person on the source website who states the glitch "u66865rue45" isn't even sure that's the right name). Latitude0116 01:48, 21 November 2006 (UTC)

Another glitch town

My friend told about this and im not sure if it is true or not... When you play, stop in the town where you get the skill to use cut outside battles. Then DO NOT GO TO THE SHIP TO GET THE CUT. Instead, trade a pokemon with cut from a friend's game. Continue on playing the game until you acquire surf, and are able to use it outside battle. Go back to the town where the ship is. access the ship pier, but DO NOT GET IN TO THE SHIP. Instead, when you are on the pier, with the door to ship down from you, surf left from the pier. Surf on, until you see a town.

That's it. all that I know about it. I would be happy if someone would test this out for me.

Unknown Glitch

http://youtube.com/watch?v=IyzWl_MEO0A That is a glitch, and would it be okay to put on the page? User:X3ni92

Judging by your name, are you the owner of that Smeargle? If yes... then... does it do that every time? o3o ティナ281 02:40, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

i am the owner of that smeargle, and every time i try to look at its summary it does that, if use it in battle (against a pokemon trainer) if i choose attack then press b then go to items and use any type of poke ball it will catch there pokemon and go to the pokedex, but once it asks for a nickname it freezes with the same pink screen wih a safari ball in the middle. User:X3ni92

Weird. Probably a side effect of an Action Replay... ティナ281 02:49, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

i don't have an action replay o.o User:X3ni92

Oh. Weird. Because you said uh, that you could catch trainer's Pokémon. Then jeez, something is seriously screwed up with that Smeargle. ティナ281 02:53, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

i don't know whats wrong with it :/ i have a weird Unknown too, it has other moves then Hidden Power it got these moves (smeargle got the virus/glitch) after i traded them from Pokemon XD User:X3ni92

Maybe something happened on the XD data on the Memory Card, so it screws up Pokémon data and such. Maybe you should try trading over another Pokémon from XD, and if that Pokémon is awkward too, then I think something's up with your GC→GBA link cable or your XD data. ティナ281 03:02, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

i did that with Houndour and Totodile and they work fine and evolved fine too. User:X3ni92

so would this be considered a glitch or not? X3ni92 02:55, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Probably just your game, methinks. Not really notable enough, or considered a seperate glitch that could work on a bunch of different carts. Tina281 02:58, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Thanks anyways! X3ni92 03:18, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Now thats a thought.

What happens (in Gen 2, 3, 4) when you breed a Glitch? I mean, think about it, what happens when you breed two of the same Glitches, or two different Glitches, or a Glitch and a Pokémon? |: Has anyone ever tried this before? Takoto タコト| サソデイ = 愛 14:56, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

My friend tried it a few times(He's an adept hacker). His results:

1- Game froze. 2- Bad Egg; never hatched. 3- Bad Egg; game crashed; saved data deleted. 4(new cart)- Game froze. 5- Game froze. Theoretically, it's possible, but I wouldn't try it. Kiryu 22:49, 22 December 2008 (UTC)


Why are there 2 tweaking here? tc26 23:07, 12 July 2008 (UTC)

is this beta glitch a "glitch zigzagoon" or a "no item glitch", both, or does it not exist

i got a beta r/s/e mailed to me by mistake. it wont save so its useless. any way i got a zizagoon. it was`nt holding anything and if i gave it will say "its alredy holding an item". if i took the "item" from it the screen displays "its not holding anything". make up your mind! what do you think? - unsigned comment from Whatswithalltheextraspace (talkcontribs)

Ithink that's why it's called a "beta game." Just a bug they hadn't worked out yet. Kiryu 23:02, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

Town Map Glitch

Erm,I used a cheating device to walk through walls and go to the mystery zone,then I used a town map.When it returned to the map,it became all glitchy(Trees were white,rocks became different,etc.)Should that be mentioned on the article? ShinyEmpoleon 05:47, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

No, that's just a side effect of the Walk through Walls code. It's happenned to me. I bet the game was fine other than that, wasn't it? Same happenned to my friend when he used the code to go over a building seperating the routes. The city's colors were off. He went inside a building and everything was fine. Kiryu 23:00, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

FRLG Glitch

One time (i forget the date, but it was sometime last week or this week) I loaded my Fire Red while i was in the Pokémon Center, and The entire thing was all glitched up. There were invisible walls everywhere, and the Center was enlongated. However, besides that, everything still worked as normal. I know it was the first time I had played it in a while, and when I left the center, everything was normal. Now that I think about it, it could have been Ruby or Sapphire. Anyone else ever experience this? Me and my fellow torchics agree on this - Sk8torchic 19:28, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

Probably a bug that they didn't get rid of. Kiryu 22:56, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

Fence glitch

Very similar to the hill glitch and occurs in Ruby, Sapphire, and I think Emerald. In route 121- west of Lilycove- there is a man by a small collection of fences. Two steps directly below him is an item, but the fence is between him and the item. He's looking around, sometimes looking down. If you collect the item then stand where the item was, the man will see you and approach you- STANDING ON THE FENCE. This has happenned to me and I sufferred no ill effects. This only works the fisrt time you battle him, of course. Can this be added? Kiryu 22:34, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

Stupid question here, but...

How does the game know to call glitched eggs "bad eggs?" And don't give me crap that it's a fan term, because I watched my cousin get a bad egg and it was actually called that. Kiryu 22:53, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

Maybe the translators idea of a joke--DCM((曲奇饼妖怪Spy on My Edits)) 22:55, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

GSC Mail and Battle House glitches

I realize that I'm posting a lot here, but I was playing my friend's Crystal version and tried to put mail in the box. It said the mailbox was full, so I went to the PC, and all of the "mail" in there was a bunch of radom question marks, something like this: ??? ? ????? ??? and so on. I tried taking the mail out and it seemed I succeeded, but it didn't show up in the bag and there was still no space. So I tried removing it all. Again, it seemed I was succeeding until I got about halfway through, then the game froze. Another time I went to the Battle House in Viridian City and my only opponent was a triner with a level 0 Typhlosion, and whenever I selected an action, no matter if it was "Run" or "Fight" or whatever, the game would freeze. Comments? Kiryu 23:10, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

Sounds like your game cartridge is dyingDCM((曲奇饼妖怪Spy on My Edits))

Glitches not working?

On Pokemon Red and Yellow, I tried the glitch stating that if you evolve your starter pokemon before you get your Pokedex, that the game won't let you progress, and it didn't work. I got my pokedex, and it had Charmander and Charmeleon in it, and I was able to move along just fine. Something needs to be done...there is either more to this glitch which should be included, or it should be removed for being false.

Also, on Yellow, I visited the Celadon City hotel which resembles a pokemon center as mentioned, and there was no invisible PC anywhere, so again, this needs to be changed or removed for being false. Mortem 23:20, 27 December 2008 (UTC)

Please place new comments on the bottom of the page, thank you. As for the Invisible PC, that was removed it Yellow, as far as I know. The Dark Fiddler - Nos hablamos? 23:22, 27 December 2008 (UTC)
Sorry about that, I just thought the top seemed to be the logical place to place new stuff...but that's besides the point. I hadn't gotten that far on red/blue to test it out on there. What of the starter glitch? Do you need to evolve the pokemon twice or what? If that "preventing progress" does exist, it needs to be reworded, because it is not true as it is currently written. Mortem 22:53, 28 December 2008 (UTC)
It says only "Gen I" so if it doesn't occur to you, I'd guess that that glitch is only in Japanese Red and Green versions. UltimateSephiroth (about me · chat · edits) 12:09, 28 December 2008 (UTC)
Then should someone add that to the description? Or maybe I'll do it?


My sister's friend has a glitched-up hall of fame on her firered. I know MissingNo/'M can cause this, but I'm pretty sure she's never seen a glitch pokemon when she's played. Two questions about this: One, does MissingNo/'M show up in an frlg pokedex? And is there any other explanation for this?Arceus is the Best 17:17, 28 December 2008 (UTC)

No, they do not show up in FR/LG, and the only other explanation I can think of is hacking. The Dark Fiddler - Nos hablamos? 17:18, 28 December 2008 (UTC)
Hacking doesnt equal glitches, im sorry to sayDCM((曲奇饼妖怪Spy on My Edits))
No, not always, but improper hacking is almost certain to get SOME glitchiness if the data is messed up, The Dark Fiddler - Nos hablamos? 22:35, 28 December 2008 (UTC)
But not official glitchesDCM((曲奇饼妖怪Spy on My Edits))
What do you mean by "official glitches"? I can make a FireRed ROM to put you fight a ? if I like, or make you face a 'M on a Blue ROM (which could cause the Hall of Fame glitch to occur), and that's hacking just like sprite and map editing. UltimateSephiroth (about me · chat · edits) 22:57, 28 December 2008 (UTC)
This is not a ROM, it's an actual cartridge, and she's never cheated. Arceus is the Best 19:53, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

Sticky hold glitch

I'm surprised this one is missing. It only occurs very rarely, but it's really fun to look at when it does occur. As far as I know it doesn't exist in DPPt, and was introduced in RSE. It has two forms, a wild battle form, and a vs. battle form

For the wild battle form, just KO wild Grimers with covet. It happens rarely but sometimes wild Grimers hold nugget items. Also half the time they have sticky hold, half the time they have stench. If your pokemon KOs the Grimer with covet and had the opportunity to steal a nugget, but was denied the steal because of Sticky Hold, the sprite for the grimer does not disappear from the screen when the grimer faints.

For the Vs. battle form you need: two RSE games/GBAs, a weak pokemon with the "sticky hold" ability(a low lever Grimer is probably best), in the other game Step 1: Set up a team where the first pokemon has the "Sticky hold" ability, and an item. (preferably a very low level one as it needs to get KOed by covet for the glitch to work, I used a L13 Grimer) Step 2: double check to make sure you have a secret base setup somewhere the second game can access it. Step 3: record swap so that the second game can battle against the team including Grimer. Step 4: KO the Grimer with covet.

When it faints another pokemon will appear on the screen, but the game will still draw the Grimer sprite on top of it using the pallette from the pokemon that is actually battling. the Grimer sprite will remain in place until you switch to something other than the battle screen. - unsigned comment from Marhawkman (talkcontribs)
