Generation I Glitch Discussion / Hall of Fame Corruption but worse
« on: May 03, 2020, 04:52:23 pm »
Hi all! This is a somewhat continuation of my previous thread of Hall of Fame corruption. My intention back then was to document all the effects of glitch pokemon that appear in the HoF. During this, I discovered something important - any glitch pokemon that wasn't a hybrid of a "valid" pokemon species would have their sprite blanked out by the Rhydon Trap. This means, for most glitch pokemon, especially ones that can freeze the game, will not have such effects or appear in the HoF, leaving any kind of corruption in the HoF limited to the handful of glitch pokemon with valid families and improper sprites.

In fact, in Red and Blue, all the hybrid glitch pokemon in the game do not have freezing front sprites with dimensions of 0x0 (thats the only dimension that can do more than just corrupt the HoF that I'm aware of). However, in Yellow, there are two pokemon that are in fact hybrids and have front sprite dimensions of 0x0, which are 0xEC and 0xF4. If these pokemon appeared in the Hall of Fame or viewed in the status screen, they would likely have similar effects to Yellow Missingno.

And in fact, Evie already did a video about this in 2016, demonstrating that viewing their status screens will in fact cause overworld corruption though no lasting damage is done. I assume the same would happen if they were displayed in the HoF. So, I already have my answer. But I want to do more!
To get one of those pokemon and view their status involves catching them, and since you can't catch them because of their front sprites, you need to go through a really convoluted process using other glitches in order to catch it, as demonstrated in her video. That's all fine and dandy, but if you could just have it appear in the HoF, you could get all the benefits of corruption *right in your PC!*

So here's my plan - find a way to make one of those pokemon appear in your HoF, through the back and/or front sprites of other glitch pokemon.

We can already do the corruption through catching the pokemon in a convoluted manner and viewing it's status, but I want something thats easier to set up. Trainer Fly is a pretty simple glitch to perform, but we're limited to pokemon that have IDs less than 200 or any glitch pokemon that do appear on the teams of Trainer Fly pokemon trainers. We can also use pokemon that appear in the HoF to corrupt it further, like a terrible recursive loop of corruption.

How easy this is depends heavily on how deterministic HoF corruption is. Are the corruptions constant or not? What are the patterns? Is it safe to just encounter 1 glitch pokemon enough times until it corrupts one of the pokemon to be 0xEC or 0xF4, or do only specific pokemon appear in the HoF based on the front sprite encountered? How can we manipulate it so that one of those two bytes appears in HoF data? I think this could be really interesting to look into. We already recently got a video going over how pokemon sprites are decompressed recently, but I don't recall the corruptions being constant. Is it possible to just continually encounter pokemon with a glitch pokemon's huge backsprite and eventually corrupt the HoF in just the right way, or is this result only possible with certain glitch pokemon's front and back sprites?

There really is no purpose to this other than for fun, and possibly explore the effects of those glitch pokemon's sprites without having to use glitch items or ACE. Yellow Missingno, obviously, has similar effects, but I think the possibility of accidentally triggering it through corrupted Hall Of Fame data is really funny and unexpected.
And I'm not talking about what happens when you see a glitch pokemon and it corrupts the hall of fame!
I like asking questions and learning about the inner workings of the original Pokemon games. In 2019, a lot of the cooler and exploitable glitches (8F, particularly) have been discovered, and the disassembly at our fingertips, much of the gen one games have been demystified. But there are still curiosities!
I'm interested in cataloging the effects of glitch Pokemon when they appear in the Hall of Fame on the PC. I do not know why they change the palette nor why they change the music, but perhaps looking into which glitch species cause effects will be interesting.
All pictures are taken on the english version of Pokemon Red, using Evie's save file. I am using BGB 1.5.7. I am unable to test this on any hardware except VC. Apparently BGB has problems with palettes, so do not take the screenshots as gospel. I also apologize for the relative unprofessional data collection here, because again, I don't know what I'm doing.
All in all, I'm a novice glitcher who doesn't know much about assembly or anything, so I encourage people smarter than I to pick up where I left off and figure out where these effects are coming from. In particular, I'd like to know why the palette changes happen as well as the music. If someone can give me memory addresses about music/palette data I will go back and put more data here. That's why I'm only doing a few glitch pokemon right now.

Long topic full of images ahead.

Hi! I need some advice in team building cause i suck at it. I have a "core", persay, but a lot of the other pokemon get switched around a lot. I generally like stall/defensive/dot type teams, and keeping my pokemon alive for as long as possible, sweeping only if i gather enough boosts.

This is an ingame team, so no legendaries, please. Sole exception is Terrakion, who i RNG manipulated in Black 2 for 3 days to get a Jolly 6 iv'd one. It actually happened during a high school assembly, lmao

I can't remember EVs, im sorry.

Current Team

Sableye "Gemma" @ Sablenite
- Calm Mind
- Will-o-Wisp
- Recover
- Shadow Ball
Prankster / Bold

My general lead pokemon. Calm mind when against special pokemon, will-o-wisp against physical attackers. Try not to mega evolve unless I need the bulk or I need to reflect status moves or spikes/stealth rock.

Clefable "Cat" @ Leftovers
- Moonlight
- Moonblast
- Calm Mind
- Flamethrower
Unaware / Bold

A pokemon to counter setup sweepers and other pokemon that rely on those types of moves. Also Dragon killer! Flamethrower is good coverage against some steel types, provided i've already got a calm mind or two under my belt.

Gliscor "Roger" @ Toxic Orb
- Substitute
- Protect
- Earthquake
- Toxic
Poison Heal/ Impish

Haven't used this boy as much as I did in X/Y, since the set is kinda stale now. However, he works well as a physically defensive pokemon and is able to stall out pokemon with Toxic.

Mandibuzz "Arlie" @ Leftovers
- Roost
- Taunt
- Foul Play
- Toxic
Overcoat / Bold

Darn those pesky physical attackers! This girl can take it and deal it back with foul play, and also acts as bit of a status shield/spikes rock protector with taunt. also spreads around that delicious toxic poison.

Tyranitar "Rick" @ Assault Vest
- Crunch
- Earthquake
- Stone Edge
- Ice Punch
Sand Stream / Careful

My Mega Charizard Y counter. f**k MEGA CHARIZARD Y! This pokemon can switch into a drought boosted Fire blast and survive, and then use stone edge to kill that pesky not-dragon, provided they don't switch out... Not the best check, but he's got immense special bulk.

Togekiss "Ray" @ Shell Bell (I only have 2 leftovers...)
- Air Slash
- Thunder Wave
- Nasty Plot
- Roost
Serene Grace / Modest

HOOOOO BOY WHO LIKES DEM PARA FLINCH TACTICS*? Originally I had aura sphere instead of thunder wave, but dat tasty cheap strat beats having some coverage. Can kind of work against the other pokemon who use damaging status moves. I tend to only use him in 3 pokemon battles, where the damaging effects of the other status moves aren't as useful.

* Disclaimer: Only works when the enemy is slower than you. Slightly alleviated if you use thunder wave beforehand.

Reserves (Aka other pokemon I've trained up in the past)

Introductions / Hello, its me
« on: March 17, 2016, 10:25:58 pm »
i've thought about us for a long, long time...

hello! i'm cy. as you can see, i've had this account for a while. However, I haven't used it in what, 3 years? And i'm practically a new person now, so I wanted to do a reintroduction, if that's alright. I'm in the process of going through Blue on my 3ds now, using all the glitches I never got to do on my old red game. It's really fun!
I've been a longtime lurker, and I really find glitches interesting. you might say they're a special interest of mine. Either way, they're a huge inspiration to me, as odd as it seems, and being someone who is majoring in Game Design, I've been coming up with ideas on games inspired by glitches of pokemon and other games. Studying glitches has also really opened up my eyes to how video games work and will help me a lot when i eventually get into programming. (Lucky me, the college i'm going to is focused on art and i'm not going to learn any programming :')))) )

I'm an artist and I'm a huge progressive rock enthusiast. my favorite bands at the moment are Supertramp, Budgie, and Todd Rundgren's Utopia. Hi!
Art / Pokemon Glitchventures: A Comic
« on: March 17, 2016, 10:14:43 pm »
Since i logged in after many years just to ask questions on how i nuked my blue file, i decided i might as well do more than disappear and start a comic on my glitch adventures in Blue! I've started over and I already have my team back, though it took a while to catch some of them... (looking at you guys, pikachu, nidoran male, and clefairy)
Anyway, this will be a comic following my misadventures in Kanto, documenting pokemon captures, glitch abuse, and other silly things i've done. Also, there's going to be a lot of musical references. Can you catch them all?

COMIC 1: He might not be a shiny, but he sure shines.

Generation I Glitch Discussion / Finite Amount of Trainer Fly Glitch?
« on: April 27, 2013, 12:32:49 pm »
Perhaps I am misunderstanding the glitch, but in order to get your start menu back, you must battle a trainer that walks up to you, correct?
there are only a finite about of trainers in the game and the only ones that rebattle you are the elite four, who don't walk up to you (and therefore freeze the game)
while you can lose to the trainer, it restricts you to bringing a terribly weak pokemon. is there any other way to do this glitch infinitely without losing?
Multimedia Discussion / Wreck It Ralph (SPOILERS AHOY!)
« on: November 20, 2012, 06:30:59 am »
Has anyone here seen Wreck It Ralph yet? I really think you guys would enjoy it, not just because of the many video game references, but because of one thing:
Vanellope is a glitch.
I'd NEVER expect a mainstream movie, ESPECIALLY Disney, to reference such a video game subculture/knowledge such as glitches and beta level discovery. Especially since this foum is deticated to GLITCHES, I feel that it's extremely relevant to this forum. Even in the retro style credits they reference the pacman kill screen! It appeals so much to video game nerds that I'm in awe of it.
Even outside of Vanellope being a glitch, the plot is GREAT and the ending really surprised me. I'm sure some people saw it coming, but I didn't and even if I did it was really clever and I think this is the best antagonist disney hsd ever created.
Generation V Glitch Discussion / Pomeg Glitch in 5th gen?
« on: October 23, 2012, 08:32:31 pm »
With the new mechanics of berries in 5th gen, it's impossible for one to reduce the HP EVs in such a way that a pokemon loses enough HP to have it go under zero. However, in black and white 2, they introduced Join Avenue.

In Join Avenue, there are people who set up shops and they can alter a pokemon's EVs both positively and negatively. For instance, the Salon, when fully upgraded, can reduce EVs to 0. the Dojo and Cafe allow you to level up your pokemon like with rare candies and also increase your EVs in each stat by up to 64.

Unless 5th gen patched up allowing you to reduce HP like that with EVs too, I think this glitch is still viable. I have a Salon of level 5 right now, but I don't have the Makeup that reduces HP EVs to zero. If anyone else can help me with this, I'll be so grateful! I really hope they overlooked this.

EDIT: I tried this out on a level 75 Kyurem with 52 HP EVs. Used Slender Make Up (-50 HP EVs) and his base HP did go down, but not his actual HP, which stayed at 6. Sorry about the false alarm, guys D:
Introductions / Good Morning/Evening, GCL!
« on: August 01, 2012, 12:26:27 pm »
Hello, GCL! You probably don't know me, or you may remember me as Cyhunt(tastic) way back when, but I've mostly been a stalker of this board. I really really love pokemon glitches. I remember being in 4th grade reading up TR's Rockin for new information on pokemon glitches when TR Rose still updated that part, and going to gamestop to get my first Gen I game just to glitch it up beyond belief.
I really love glitching up video games. It's my main source of fun after beating the game, and trying to mess up video games is just way more fun than doing what you're supposed to. :P

Of course, I'm not all about glitches. In terms of my other interests, I like the Beatles and other classic rock bands, including bands like ELO, Supertramp, and Klaatu. I'm also an artist, and you can look at my art on my Nabyn (it's like deviantart) I also have a tumblr at (yes, named after the 3rd part of ELO's Out of the Blue. the url with for in it was taken so i had to type fer :C) Warning: NSFW sometimes.
Also, I made a blog on tumblr dedicated to pokemon glitches. Using this website as a source, I've been writing comprehensive articles on all the glitches in Pokemon and how to perform them, and also how they work. So far I only have an article on Missingno., but I hope to make articles on all the glitch pokemon. I'd also appreciate any help you could give or any facts I get wrong on it, and you guys are free to copy/paste my wording into the individual articles for each pokemon, as long as you source me. <3

I like Metalocalypse and Superjail, and I'm a Homestuck fan too. I also enjoy My Little Pony, but I despise the fandom. Same with Homestuck, actually! I really hate fandoms :D

Edit: Oh yes. I'm also a Monster Hunter fan. I play Tri mainly, but i've played MHFU and MHP3rd. I'm eagerly waiting for MH3G to be released in America. Wanna hunt? just PM me!
Also I'm a chick. Because Cytric Acid is apparently a dude name. Hi!
