Um, is this at all notable? Not to mention the article is full of misspellings. --PAK Man 16:15, 10 June 2007 (UTC)

1.There are no misspellings. 2.Just follow the link I put. it dosent look fake to me.--Lucarioking 16:43, 10 June 2007 (UTC)

1. Yes there are. Pokémon is spelled as "pokemon" more than once. 2. No it isn't fake. It definitely needs a better name, though, and to be cleaned up.

My judgment? Currently this article is total crap. In fact, both it and Invisible shiny bulbasaur are. I mean, honestly, there are no apostrophes, no capital letters, jeez, Lucarioking, did your punctuation and shift keys break?

They're notable (though maybe not ISB... that sounds more like a Pikablu than anything), but they need heavy cleanup. --TTEchidna 00:02, 11 June 2007 (UTC)


Has DPBox been removed for the European versions of Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl? It's to be released on the 27th July 2007 and I'm just wondering if it has been corrected or not. The same uestion goes for the Invisible Shiny Bulbasaur.

P.S. I can't wait for when it is released!! - Tesh!

Yes, it has been Not even we over here in the US got it. --TTEchidna 23:11, 5 July 2007 (UTC)
Indeed. With the exception of the Japanese version, a cheat device is required to encounter DPBox. However, I've heard that the POMEG Glitch is still present in Diamond/Pearl, and IF it is, then one could use the Emerald POMEG method of encountering ?????????? to potentially encounter DPBox.--DavidJCobb 19:29, 16 March 2008 (UTC)


1) why is the sprite animated? 2) i'm trying to get the battle sprite from my emulator, will let you know when i'm done. OrigamiGuy-Talk-Contribs-Mudkipz 12:00, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

Pomeg glitch

it does exists in D/P,but unfotunately it works now in a very diferent way wich is almost unexploitable

How do you do it? --Shiny Noctowl 00:27, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

in the same way as you would in Emerald version,i tryied it with my Torterra and it indeed worked

How's it in a different way and almost unexploitable, then? --Shiny Noctowl 00:37, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

because you aren't able to KO your Pokémon with a Potion,it says "There's no need for that now" try it,remember EVing the target some in HP to make the glitch

So you can't use it to get a Metapod from an egg anymore? --Shiny Noctowl 00:47, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

nope,but using a DPBox you can have a freezing Bad Egg figth,sometimes with overlevels,the higher i have seen its 224,and also i have seen a Manaphy Bad Egg,or a Bad Egg with Insomnia

About this glitch...

Many people says that this glitch may appear even without the use of any cheating device. Will it really appear if you have 2 fainted Pokémon, an egg, and a healthy on in your party? Palkia38 05:02, 19 July 2008 (UTC)

Lemme go try it... Know what, I'll record it too. Crüsäder 15:21, 22 July 2008 (UTC)
I tried it in the US version, it didn't work. Theininen 14:33, 6 September 2008 (UTC)
Yeah,I tried it too,and it did not work.ShinyEmpoleon20:27, 11 September 2008 (UTC)


The same thing is said twice here.

It can also appear when one "recruits" a partner trainer (such as Riley) and leaves the area the partner is "supposed" to be in using a Walk Through Walls cheat; from there, the player must trigger a wild battle (a common method is to walk on water). This results in the partner (who was replaced by a placeholder partner when the player left the "recruitment area") sending out DPBox as a placeholder Pokémon. In Double Battles, DPBox copies the speed of its partner and changes all Pokémon's cries to Bulbasaur's cry. After every attack animation, its HP bar disappears. It has no usable attacks (although it may have glitch attacks) and it doesn't show up on the Pokémon screen.

Then it says

It can also be encountered by using the "walk anywhere" code activated and having a partner so as to encounter wild Pokémon in double battles. If this is done outside the area you "recruited" the partner, the partner's sprite will be replaced by the player's sprite (so that they look like a clone of the player), their Pokémon will be changed to a DPBox, and their name will be changed to a blank space. This is most likely because by exiting the area the partner was confined to, the player caused the game to remove all of the partner's stats from memory, but because of the walk through walls code, the game never realized that the player no longer has a partner; thus, when entering a wild double battle, a placeholder trainer sends out its placeholder DPBox.

Which means the same thing, so I've deleted paragraph two. MooTwo 14:25, 13 August 2008 (UTC)


Could someone explain these sentences to me?

Turn the glove into the orange glove and select and drag the glove toward the Pokémon that has the item. Drag it back to DPBox to grab it. Keep it selected and take the item off of it.

So many "it"s and stuff that I can't even understand how to fix it. Theininen 22:12, 5 September 2008 (UTC)

Before doing this...

I just want to see this glitch... Well, if have the things needed to have this DPBox, the 2 fainted Pokémon, the healthy one, and an egg, I'd go on a double battle, but before that, I'll save the game, then enter the double battle. Of course, DPBox would show up, and if I turned off the game, will DPBox still appear if I turned back on my game?Palkia38 03:10, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

Nevermind... LOL Palkia38 10:58, 26 December 2008 (UTC)


This page has the links at the top to arceus and bulbasaur, but they don't link back, should i leave it or fix it? Theininen 14:36, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

It's just a fun thing because it's National Dex # is 000, which would put it between Arceus and Bulbasaur. Since it isn't an official Pokémon though, don't change the links on those two pages. ←{Berrymaster|Talk|Contrib}→ 15:06, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

Wha do?

This is a long shot, but I figured I'd give my two cents in regards to this phenomenon.

I've had a decent amount of coding experience and I've got a hypothesis about why part of "What will (Pokémon) do?" is cut out. Given the way programs use memory it's possible that the placeholder data at least partially shares memory with something else (like if you got more than 99 of an item in Gen I the tens place would show different tiles instead of numbers) - and I've found out (usually by accident) that programming languages often include "backspace characters" and/or may interpret certain values outside the character set in the same way.

Because I don't have a way to verify anything in this case I'm only making an educated guess, but I think it might be possible that somehow or other the DPBox's name contains enough backspace characters (actual or incidental) to cut out the "t will " in this sentence. Depending on the whats and hows, it could even explain some of the other abnormalities associated with the glitch.

Does anyone have a way of checking this out? On that note, it'd be interesting to poke around in the game's code, I'm going to see if there is a way - I'm sure there is, but I'm not sure where to start; any suggestions? thanks Icecadavers 06:16, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

I also have a decent bit of coding experience, and i too reckon it's a backspace character (or just a character with a negative 'width' attribute). Not a clue how to go about looking at the source code - that would also be reverse engineering, and thus illegal. Lord of Origami :) 11:41, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

maybe this should be put in the article

Maybe it should be added that there is another another way somewhat like the double battle glitch to find a -----, what you do is you use an action replay code to clone other people on the map to clone a trainer (This doesn't work with the versus seeker) when the trainer notices you he should talk to you and try to battle you but then the clone of the trainer will notice you and talk to you and because there are two of them it should trigger a double battle but because there is only one trainer it should send out a regular Pokemon and a ----- (this only works on a trianer with one pokemon) and after you've beaten the regular Pokemon the battle should end with a slight lag at the end from trying to display the second trainer.If you would like the code to clone trainers I will happily post it. 0piggyjelly0 18:02, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
