Non-Obtainable Glitches

We should get more info. on the "non-obtainable" glitches - they can still be obtained with a cheating device. Even if they don't "officialy" count as Glitch Pokémon, they do have stats, learn moves etc. - unsigned comment from Mattiuscn (talkcontribs)

Previously we had pages for these "glitches", but they got deleted. At this time, the 4 generations of glitch Pokémon had two templates: Generation I on one and the rest on an other, but soon after the pages were deleted, they were merged. I think the reason they were removed was because using an AR/Game Shark on Red/Blue, it is damaging the system, meaning that something bad is obviously going to happen. On the other hand, glitches are found without damaging the system, meaning that these are actually bugs in the game. They're still able to be found at a new page in the userspace, but I don't remember exactly where it is. Turtwig A (talk | contribs) 22:20, 13 April 2010 (UTC)

So about those unobtainable RBY glitch 'mons

Almost all the glitches listed for other generations can only be seen with a cheating device (as it says on the article itself), so it seems a little... odd to leave off the unobtainables just from the first generation. Should they be added? Yamiidenryuu 23:38, 28 January 2012 (UTC)

The reason that is done is that the generation I games had such a lot of unused data and blatant glitches, and so there are too many glitch Pokemon to get an article on every one. Later generations they fixed the glitches much better, and so there basically wouldn't be any articles on them if we limited it to non-cheat device ones. Werdnae (talk) 04:08, 29 January 2012 (UTC)
I guess that makes sense, but now I'm wondering if we really need articles on the later gen glitch Pokemon if you can't encounter them during normal gameplay anyway. I guess the inconsistency here is just bothering me, even if there's a reason for it... Yamiidenryuu
I kinda agree that we don't need articles on later generation glitch Pokémon if they need cheating devices to encounter. I'd leave ----- and óË e Ái though, because they can be temporarily seen, and Bad Egg (while it is only available by cheating, it is intentional and used as a cheating prevention system, and really isn't a "glitch" Pokémon). I also wouldn't delete - because óË e Ái is just a nicknamed variant of it and will eventually be merged in. It's ?????????? and ? that I don't really want around. --SnorlaxMonster 14:38, 30 January 2012 (UTC)
Snorlax, I'm sure I'd read that ?????????? can be seen temporarily (like ----- can). OwnageMuch 07:03, 3 February 2012 (UTC)
Hmm, I haven't read that. If you come across it, please link it here. If you can, that just leaves ? I guess. However, I would like to remove, or at least shrink, the cheating sections on the other Gen III+ glitch Pokémon's articles. --SnorlaxMonster 07:59, 3 February 2012 (UTC)

Missing Pokédex numbers complete

Yay! Oh yeah by the way, for 'B, I looked through the coding (0xC444-C447), those bytes were equal to 250. You're welcome, Cat980 (talk) 01:22, 28 July 2012 (UTC)

Come on! I was trying to add index #s 251-4 but they got deleted. Why? MewMewTwo (talk) 22:05, 7 January 2013 (UTC)
