Isn't this the exact same thing as Glitch???? File:Ani234MS.gifMERRY File:Ani385MS.gif CHRISTMASFile:Ani225MS.gif 02:17, 20 December 2007 (UTC)

No. A glitch is the general term for an error or programming oversight in a video game. A glitch Pokémon is an error or programming oversight in a Pokémon video game that can be raised, taught attacks, and battled. Missingno. Master 02:19, 20 December 2007 (UTC)

Glitch Pokémon (In RBY anyway) are not overall harmless--they may corrupt the save file (possibly permanently) upon encountering them. Capturing them is harmless, some 'dex entries will freeze the game, but the only danger is seeing them in-battle. At least, according to this guide on GameFAQs. http://www.gamefaqs.com/portable/gameboy/file/367023/38434 Any thoughts on this? Billybobfred 07:26, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

Well, I do have a thought on this. I'm afraid I might get blocked for wording it exactly as it lays out in my mind, though, so here's the general gist of it: The FAQ LIES! Glitch Pokémon are completely HARMLESS! Its the moves some of them can know that do the damage (.4 starting with the move commonly nicknamed Super Glitch has gained it a horrible reputation, given Super Glitch's exceptionally undesirable effect of, worst case scenario, destroying your saved game). Now don't get me wrong, this FAQ is astonishingly knowelegeble on many 1st generation glitches, but the claims that Missingno. can destroy the game? Absolutely false, even moreso for 'M and everything else. -- Glitch Pokémon. Official Pokémon. There is no real difference between the two. In my opinion, the two should be considered equal!-- quoted by Missingno. Master

Well, it's tecnically the Glithces/Glitch Pokémon that have the moves, so they are dangerous. --Theryguy512 11:50, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

Other Glitches?

I don't know if I should have asked this here, but it seemed like the right place. What about the Glitches that Trainers have when you try to encounter them via Gameshark? There is a way to capture those glitches without the use of the Capture Trainer's Pokémon Code, so should these glitches have pages? --Boxman 15:34, 9 June 2008 (UTC)
