I have to edit the name as it's outdated compared to the one on the old Gammapedia.  Iirc it was The_KiNG of Evil but I'd have to check because it was a reference to someone in the IRC channel named The_KiNG or otherwise
Holy f**k, I had no clue there was LORE for GCLF horseplay! This is too good. :D

Changed his postcount back to 666, in the name of forum shenanigans.

(And wait, the expanded item pack is triggered by Pokédex flag 256?!Oh, yeah, it's putting a 0 after where 151 would be if that's what you meant.)

The usually route to an expanded item pack involves encountering MissingNo or 'M twice to change the quantity of the sixth item to 255, which works by setting the highest bit of the quantity byte, since it is the "seen" flag for those Pokémon with dex number 0 (really 256, because the dex number minus one is used as the index into the flag array, which underflows for dex number 0).
Ah, that's what you meant. I always forget that the cloning happens due to flipping a bit to on.

I'm inclined along with the rest of Smogon to say it was just bad luck. The AI in English Stadium 2 is notorious for making its decisions based on what you put in, but in all the ones programmed by Game Freak, it's "fair", though they seemed to get a lot smarter Gen 5 and onward. (If you use Trick and give something a Choice Scarf, the opponent switches!) The fact of the matter is, though, that you're pitting one very limited team against all 1000+ Frontier sets at once. It requires a strategy based on consistency rather than being one step ahead of a real opponent in a varying metagame, and in the case of a streak of 50, that's enough consistency to defeat 150 randomly selected sets, consecutively.

What an absolutely based, and dare I say it, redpilled user name.
Hahaha, I must be behind on the times if I still read that by default as a compliment. Makes me wonder what more of the attitude that led an admin to make that account would lead to here nowadays.

Yeah, I saw some of the stream as well. I'll be playing it and will probably enjoy "because Pokémon", but am just not in a hurry to.

Spoiler tags just don't work in the forum's current state. In response to each though, shift each forward 8 for Gen 8:

This needs an article, badly. Arguably RBY's debug functions too if they're not on here already.

I'll probably do it, but I'll use this to remind myself.

Tech Help / Re: How to play GBA in side-by-side view on Android?
« on: November 09, 2019, 09:30:32 pm »
There's a shader downloadable right from RetroArch that doubles the screen, but for some reason...squishes it horizontally. It's also the only one of the three "3D" ones that works on any of the GBA emulators available for it.

That means it's not out of the question, though. I could probably just find the relevant file and change a few values.

Is anyone else having some forum pages (most notably Recent Posts) stretch to an extreme length horizontally?

Speaking of numbers, nobody post any new topics! ...Uh, ever! XD

So encounters are possible in the debug version of the demo. I suppose that's at least slightly relevant.

A good amount of pages are already denoted as such, though maybe more should be. I'll rename any examples I see that aren't too well-known. (And wait, the expanded item pack is triggered by Pokédex flag 256?!Oh, yeah, it's putting a 0 after where 151 would be if that's what you meant.)

Under these definitions, should dry underflow be classified as a trick? Or is it still "its own weirdness"? I guess this depends on whether failure to handle x255 item stacks is considered an error in the code or not.
Dry underflow would be a trick under those definitions, as would a lot of other curiosities. Ability to have a stack over 99 is the glitch.

ZZAZZ is just an effect. It wouldn't have been called a glitch of its own if there was even the notion of debugging back when it was first observed.

I feel like this must have been done before too, but also never saw it formally written out. Good work! :) With no glitch items, I don't see any need to change the item lists (though I haven't tested it). Going from zero to this in a week is certainly something, too.

And these can be transferred through Bank? I very well might try this and transfer them up for when I finally do the Rainbow Rocket episode, just for the love of the first generation.
