Hey guys, I'm going to be documenting all of my research into glitch Pokémon for the Gen VII games here!WHEN TRYING THIS, MAKE SURE TO BACK UP YOUR SAVE. NOBODY HAS REPORTED THEIR SAVE BEING HARMED BUT IT COULD VERY WELL HAPPEN.1011
This was the first glitch Pokémon I tried. It actually got put into my box and I was able to access the PC (unlike on my friend's 3ds when I was trying this last night!)
This appears to be it's menu icon:
When I viewed it's summary, as expected, it crashed the game. This was the only shot I was able to get of it before it crashed spectacularly:
As you can see from the picture, it has no ability, no sprite and it seems to default to the name "100" even if I try to nickname it something else. Hm. All stats are 5 except HP, which is 11. The move "Pound" has no real relevance, it's just the default move in PKHeX.
Afterwards, I injected it into my party instead:
Firstly, I tried SWITCHING it into battle. In this example, I battled a Pichu. As I expected, it crashed as soon as it tried to bring it out.
Then I switched it OUTSIDE of battle and then go into battle. A similar effect happened, except it crashes during you throwing the ball, not when it tries to enter the menu (run, fight, bag, etc.) Here's a picture:
this is where it crashedb05a
The second Pokémon I tried was "b05a".
I genned in two, one a normal form (in my party) and a shiny form (in my PC).
Firstly, the normal form.
For some reason, it knew X-Scissor + the last 3 moves of my Slowpoke?? I swear I only put "Pound" on it.
It's sprite changed from Bulbasaur to Venusaur to a non-sprite which crashed the game. There's about a 2/3 chance that you'll be able to view the summary.
Why is it from Pokémon Go? I have no idea. I haven't edited the Met location.
Now, the shiny
Usually when I viewed this Pokémon it would show a shiny Bulbasaur sprite, which isn't too interesting, but ONE time, it showed THIS.
Any time I chucked either one out into battle, it'd crash in a similar fashion to 1011, except one time. It was chucked out into battle and it was just a white cube. I didn't manage to take a picture (because it crashed as soon as I entered the "fight" menu) and I haven't been able to replicate it.ff80
Firstly, the shiny. It normally has the sprite of a shiny Bulbasaur, although I occasionally got a Shiny Starly and Pidgeot sprite. Hm. Seems to be a 50/50 chance whether or not it'll crash when you view it's sprite.
It crashes when sent into battle, as is the norm.
The non-shiny version has a sprite of a Staraptor and doesn't crash when you view it's sprite (I've been scrolling on and off of the Pokémon for a while and it hasn't crashed yet.) Still on the hunt for a Pokémon that can be used in battle, however.
From now on I'll be trying the Pokémon in Poké Refresh to see if that works. So let's try ff80, shall we?
The shiny version WORKS! It is an INSANELY zoomed in version of shiny Bulbasaur! I think that's pretty badass. Here's a photo:
A similar result happens with the non-shiny version, except it is a non-shiny Bulbasaur.b00b (ha, ha)
So, I decided to continue this thread.
With b00b, I decided to use my QR code exploit to gen it in and see what happens.
It showed up as a Raticate! Too bad when I entered the box it crashed straight away. Surprising. Other times the game crashed as soon as I tried scanning the QR code.
As mentioned earlier, this Pokémon seems to crash the game the majority of the time when trying to view it's sprite. When ever I put it into my party the game crashed as soon as it loaded my save, which was rather fun (I thought I had bricked my save, but I just restored a backup and it worked fine.) I thought it could have been the fact it has no nickname, so I nicknamed it;
How mature of me.
I also tried genning in a shiny version, which always seemed to crash when I scanned the QR code.
I couldn't get any photos as they seemed to crash the game 100% of the time whenever I viewed their sprite. Luckily having these in your boxes doesn't seem to cause any save instability, as I still haven't got around to releasing them from my box. Helpful.Edit regarding b00b:
Glitch Pokémon can be safely stored in Bank! A couple screenshots as proof;SOFTWARE USED:
JKSV, Illegal PKHeX, Homebrew Launcher (soundhax, to be exact), Luma3ds
I recorded all of this on a European O3DS running CFW & software version 11.2
