So I started playing Crystal VC and learned that the cloning glitch has more precision than in Gold/Silver.

I did it so I could have all 3 starters and managed to do it perfectly on the first go with Totodile (nicknamed "Dile"). However, my second attempt with Cyndaquil didn't go so well.
While Cyndaquil itself turned out ok, it ended up getting Totodile's nickname but was otherwise intact with no other issues. Totodile didn't get the same treatment:

Totodile's nickname is glitched with my player's name at the end (Yuuki), but it's very short and doesn't lock up the game or anything if I use it in battle (the name appears as "?" in the party). The OT is "?", but other than that it's still a Totodile according to the game and has no other issues I'm aware of.

What I wanna know is, is this Totodile safe to keep? Could I potentially breed it and get a regular Totodile and get rid of it if I can't fix the garbled name?

I'm asking this because most people say that blank named clones or clones with strange names shouldn't be kept, but I really don't wanna keep cloning starters if I could just breed this Totodile for a regular one in the end or it simply has a glitched nickname (and I don't wanna give up my awesome ID number either). Is there an exception to some clones that have slight issues?

EDIT: Scratch that, leveling up this Totodile actually crashed the 3DS (had to hold down the Power button; Cyndaquil levels up fine though).  :-\ Might I be able to breed it instead?

I think we'll need to find a way to circumvent the crashes on hardware, but it has potential to work with the correct setups, I hope

Hmm, I'm not sure what you meant but sadly I don't think the entry is accessible.
Wow! This is groundbreaking :).

Amazing find BUGLITCH.

If you bring up the Pokédex entry of one of these glitch Pokémon could that lead to reliable arbitrary code execution?

Hello guys, I found a way to get glitch Pokémon in D/P without using any emulator-only glitches like "glitch scripts" or similar things. (however I couldn't test on real hardware for now)

It's using a glitch I will call the Battle Corruption Glitch from now on.

This glitch will corrupt the wild encounters as well as the Great Marsh encounters. I called it Battle Corruption Glitch because it's actually affecting every battles, you will get why later.

I think the best way to explain it is to go through the process of its discovery.

Pomeg Glitch

You may know that you can't directly get a Fainted Pokemon with the Pomeg in D/P/Pl, however it's easy to get one by using Pomeg in order to get a negative amount of HP, so that you can use a Rare Candy to raise its HP to 0.

You may also know that, if you have less than six Pokémon in your team, and if all your Pokémon are Fainted, the game will pick the Pokemon just after your last one (the 5th if you have 4, the 6th Pokemon if you have 5 etc) which will result in you sending in battle the well known "DPBox".

If you have 6 Pokemon, the game will crash, because it wants to access the 7th Pokemon of your team, which is out of bound. (However I'm not quite sure about this anymore because double battles work if you have 5 fainted Pokémon on you, so the problem might be elsewhere)

I wanted to avoid this crash to see what was really happening, the way I did it is by having 6 invalid Pokémon in my team (KO, Eggs), but I cheated to have some invalid Pokemon that could fight (the empty Pokémon). Basically, I had 3 Fainted Pokémon in my team, and I edited my team size to 6.

This was the result of it :

As you can see, the wild Pokemon is glitched, this is what I called the Battle Corruption Glitch.

Battle Corruption Glitch

So this is what the BCG is: having a team of 6 invalid Pokémons will result in a wild encounter against glitched Pokémon, however it was impossible to know because of the crash.

How to not crash

So from there, it's easy to conclude than the crash was the result of our Pokémon, not of the wild corrupted one.

So all I had to do is to find a place where our Pokémon wasn't appearing, I picked the Great Marsh.

So here it is guys, all you have to do is to get 6 invalids Pokemon in your team by using the Pomeg, before heading to the Great Marsh.

Most of the time, it will crash, all Pokemons called "Bad eggs" are a no go, I couldn't catch any of them. But I could catch some of the non-bad eggs one :

very good.
but you could make a version without writing to the screen.
