This is a list of glitches that occur in the Generation II main series Pokémon games.

In Pokémon Gold and Silver

Present glitch

Main article: Present (move)#Generation II

In Gold and Silver, the move Present is glitched and the Level, Attack, and Defense variables of the damage formula are replaced. This causes the move to deal unusually large or small amounts of damage depending on the Pokémon. This glitch is not present in Pokémon Stadium 2 or Pokémon Crystal.

Trainer House glitch

Main article: Trainer House glitch

This glitch affects the Trainer in the Trainer House. It is caused by corrupted RAM for save data in Pokémon Gold and Silver. It is not present in Pokémon Crystal.

Bug-Catching Contest data copy glitch

Main article: Bug-Catching Contest data copy glitch

This glitch only appears in the Japanese versions of Gold and Silver, when a player flies out of the Bug-Catching Contest causing the creation of unstable Pokémon data. The glitch was fixed in Pokémon Crystal and in all international releases of Generation II games.

In Pokémon Crystal

Player sprite glitch

A glitch that can be found in Pokémon Crystal. This glitch causes an overworld sprite color switch between Ethan and Kris. It is caused by creating a save file as one gender of character, then overwriting it with another gender of character, but turning off while it is overwriting. It disappears after saving and resetting the game.

In all Generation II games

Celebi egg glitch

Main article: Celebi egg glitch

Coin Case glitches

Main article: Coin Case glitches

Egg black out glitch

If an egg is obtained before any other Pokémon, the player will repeatedly black out and be forced to restart the game. This was remedied in Generation III and later games by requiring the player to have two Pokémon with them in order to trade, rather than just one.

Error codes

Main article: Error codes

Experience underflow glitch

Main article: Experience#Experience underflow glitch

In Generations I and II, level 1 Pokémon using the "medium-slow" growth algorithm will jump from level 1 to level 100 after gaining a low amount of experience points.

Leveling past 100

In Generation I and II, if a Pokémon is obtained at a level above 100, it can be leveled up with Rare Candies up to level 255. If a Rare Candy is fed to a level 255 Pokémon, its level will be reset to 0. If a Pokémon above level 100 levels up due to experience, its level will be reset to 100.

Love Ball glitch

The Love Ball only gains a catch rate of 8× on Pokémon of the same gender and species as the player's Pokémon, rather than the opposite gender. This was corrected in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver.

Pokémon storage system cloning

Main article: Pokémon cloning#Storage system method

Sketch glitch

Main article: Sketch glitch

Thick Club glitch

If a Marowak with a maximum Attack stat (maximum IVs and Stat Exp in Attack) uses Swords Dance while holding a Thick Club, its Attack will overflow to 8. This glitch is not present in Pokémon Stadium 2.

Trade cloning

Main article: Pokémon cloning#Trading method

Transform assumption glitch

In Generation I and II, any Pokémon that uses Transform is regarded as a Ditto in its new form; this means that if the player catches a Mew or a glitch Pokémon which has used the move Transform instead they will obtain a Ditto because a wild Mew cannot be encountered without the use of glitches. This system was later changed in Generation III so that the event Mew on Faraway Island is not caught as Ditto if it uses Transform.

Glitches involving communication with the Generation I games

Johto guard glitch

Main article: Johto guard glitch

Shiny Ditto glitch

The Shiny Ditto glitch requires a game from Generation I and Generation II, but only has an effect on a Generation II game. By trading any Shiny Pokémon to a Generation I game, having a wild Ditto transform into that Pokémon, then catching and trading the Ditto into a Generation II game, the Ditto will be Shiny.

Trade evolution glitch

Generation I Pokémon that can evolve by trading can be taught glitch moves through this glitch. This can be achieved by trading a trade evolution Pokémon from a Generation I game to a Generation II, at a level where its evolved form will learn a move not in Generation I. Trading the Pokémon back to the Generation I game will cause the move to become a glitch move.

For example, trading a level 34 Graveler from Pokémon Red to Pokémon Gold will make the Graveler evolve into Golem. Since it is level 34, it will learn Rollout. If it is then traded back to Pokémon Red, it will still have the move, but the game won't recognize it properly since it is a Generation II move, so will become TM05.

In the side games

Pokémon Stadium 2

Infinite continues glitch

Main article: Infinite continues glitch

The infinite continues glitch is a glitch that can be performed in Pokémon Stadium 2 with any Stadium Cup. It does not work in the original Pokémon Stadium. If there is a previously suspended game and the player is playing the Stadium Cup, suspending the game after a loss causes a warning message to pop up, telling the player that there is already a suspended game. If "Continue without Suspending" is selected, a rematch with the opponent who just defeated the player will be triggered, but no continue will be used.
