Generation IV equivalent

In Generation IV, there is a glitch similar to Missingno. It appears when a Trainer enters a double battle with two fainted Pokémon, an Pokémon Egg, and one other Pokémon. Instead of the egg coming into the battle, a large white block with lines on it pops out and has Bulbasaur's cry. It also appears as a shiny Pokémon for some strange reason. On YouTube.
