Generation VII Glitch Discussion / Small evolution visual error
« on: December 28, 2016, 01:32:09 am »
Not really a big glitch or anything, but I thought it was a little interesting.

In Sun and Moon, when evolving a Pokemon, the model of the evolved Pokemon appears near the top-left corner of the screen for a split second before disappearing. At the very least, this has happened to me when evolving Pichu into Pikachu. If I had to guess, I'd say that the model loads in while the Pokemon is evolving, but appears for a very small period of time before it moves off-screen?

I'll see if I can get a picture of it soon. Has this happened to any of you guys?

EDIT: Ok, here's a kind of crappy picture. I took a video too, but there's a glare of my face in it despite all of my attempts not to catch that, ack
EDIT: I'm stupid and realized that it's because it was using Roost, which removes its Flying type. Still, it had to have a Calm nature, max HP and a lot of Spdef for it to do only half....

I didn't put this in the Glitch section because it could very well just be me hallucinating or something :p

So I was just in the Battle Tree in my Sun game, and I was battling a trainer that had an Altaria. My Metagross was paralyzed, and it just kept using Roost every time I did any damage. I didn't want to deal with that, so when it was at what I'm CERTAIN was full HP, I switched my Primarina in to decimate it with Ice Beam.

So she uses Ice Beam... and knocks this Altaria down to red HP but doesn't quite KO. I'm like alright whatever, it can't do anything to Primarina, so I'll just kill it next turn. It uses Roost, gets to about half HP... Primarina uses Ice Beam, and... it doesn't die. It lives with a sliver of health. I repeat this next turn. Lives with a liver of red health. This goes on until I finally end up freezing it, THEN I manage to KO it.

I'm absolutely CERTAIN I didn't crit first turn. Primarina is really strong, Modest and has max Sp Atk. Altaria didn't have a Yache berry... there's no WAY Ice Beam was only doing half. I even just did a calc. Ice Beam still almost always OHKOs a Calm Altaria with max HP and Spdef and the best IVs possible. At worst, it does 90%. Wtf gives? Am I going crazy?
Pokémon Discussion / RBY to be released on the 3DS Virtual Console
« on: November 12, 2015, 04:34:44 pm »
As announced on the Nintendo Direct today, Red, Blue and Yellow will be released on the 3DS's Virtual Console on February 26th

Bulbapedia's tweet about it, this is brand new so I don't think it's been posted to anything yet apart from Twitter (at the time of making this topic, anyway)

One of the coolest parts about this, I think, is that it apparently uses the 3DS's Wireless communication to link battle and trade. I wonder how many things they fixed/patched...?

Perhaps you guys will find new and interesting ways to break it  :P
Pokémon Discussion / Missing announcer phrases in Pokemon Stadium (Int.)
« on: September 09, 2015, 06:38:54 am »
I don't believe this is a glitch, so I'm posting this in the general Pokemon Discussion section instead. If it turns out it is a glitch, feel free to move it.


So for some reason in this particular version of Pokemon Stadium (the International version, NTSC to be specific) I've been playing, I've noticed two things:

1. Jynx is black instead of purple. I believe I already read somewhere that this is normal for older releases of the game, but the most notable thing is...

2. The announcer is missing at least two phrases. I noticed it immediately because one of them was always really satisfying to hear, and... he never says it in the version of the game I'm playing. In the cartridge I had a long time ago, he did.

The two phrases I'm referring to are "Taken down on the word go!" and "There's been major action already!".

I'mma cite Werster's newly-uploaded Pokemon Stadium speedrun since it's what reminded me. You can hear both of the mentioned phrases at 3:03 to 3:13 or so. There may actually be more as well, but these two are the ones I recognized immediately being missing. Glad there's a video handy, because when I first realized they were missing, I thought I was just going insane or something.

I've never heard anything about this, which is why I'm so curious. It seems to funny to just add phrases in later copies (? I'm assuming later since Jynx's design was changed) of the game. Just for more variety, I guess...?
Generation VI Glitch Discussion / Some weird XY glitch (supposedly)
« on: May 23, 2014, 12:56:00 pm »
Please note that this did not happen to me and there is, of course, no real proof that the person is telling the truth or not but it doesn't seem that far fetched and I found it rather interesting (especially since there aren't many known XY glitches as it is), so I thought I'd make a topic about it to see what you guys have to say.

Here is what they said:

I wanted to play Pokemon X after a long hiatus and I turned it on.
When it loaded, all my Pokemon were gone but a level 8 Skitty, which
was presumably mine, and no Pokemon were in the box or in the
daycare. I had all the badges, and was in Lumonise city so I decided to
go catch some more Pokemon, but all the ones I ran into were the
legendary birds but they flee before I could even attempt to catch them.
( which was unlikely, my Skitty can't do that much, lol.)

Anyways, I ended up having to restart it for a fresh start, but has anyone
ever head of this happening or has it happened to them?

Out of curiosity I asked them if just one of the birds appeared or all three, and they said that they all appeared, not just whichever one s/he should have gotten based on whatever starter s/he picked at the beginning of the game.

I don't really see why this person would have any reason to lie about this since it's not really anything spectacular, just really obscure and bizarre, and it wouldn't really be the first time some extremely bizarre glitch happened in a Pokemon game anyway (kind of like the mystery egg glitch that happened so soon after the games were released, haha), but I'm curious as to what you guys have to say about this, and what could have possibly caused something like this to happen... well, unless of course you think they're just lying  ;)
Generation II Glitch Discussion / Pokemon Crystal Wild Shiny Chance
« on: January 24, 2014, 01:52:37 am »
Hi, my apologies if this is in the wrong place or has been discussed before. I'm not actually sure whether or not this is truly a glitch but since every other percentage before XY was 1/8192 I figured it may be appropriate to post it in the glitch section.

Recently I stumbled upon a FAQ (here: that claims that the chance of encountering a shiny Pokemon in the wild in Crystal is 1/4096. Since it's a pretty long FAQ, I will post exactly what it says:

... NOTE: The odds of finding a shiny in the wild is 16:65536, or 1:4096

Has anyone else ever heard anything about this? I have heard people mention that it seems shinies are slightly more common in Crystal but never anything more than a "oh, hey, maybe they are more common or something".

I just found it rather interesting. Hopefully you guys do too and if it is true perhaps someone knows the reasoning behind this? Thanks. :)
Non-Core Game Glitch Discussion / Phantom Dittos in Pokemon Stadium 2?
« on: October 03, 2010, 04:18:38 pm »
Recently I had downloaded a ROM for Pokemon Stadium 2 so I could play around with it and try to finish it. I loaded up my Silver file to it and went to Professor Oak's lab to see what my shinies looked like when I saw this...

For some reason, every box except for Box 1 is filled with these freaky, level 100 Dittos named 9999999999. All of them have PokeRus as well. They aren't holding anything as you can see from the picture. None of them are shiny.

Also, when I load up Silver and check the boxes on the actual game and not on Stadium 2, there are no Dittos. I haven't tried placing anything in the other boxes but I will edit my post when I do.

I'm sorry if this has been reported before, but I have never seen it anywhere else. Thanks!

Edit: Alright, I just tried putting Pokemon in that box. It "deleted" everything but Snorlax, but interestingly enough, the Snorlax is now level 100, same name as the Dittos, it has Pokerus and its only move is Detect with 8/8 PP. It is also holding TM05. It also has max stats. (max for Snorlax)
Generation III Glitch Discussion / Fire Red Glitch - New or Old?
« on: January 06, 2010, 06:37:38 pm »
While I was playing around with codes, I had Walk Through Walls on and went through the Cycling Rode building, but silly me, I forgot I didn't have a bike, but instead of "Excuse Me!" I was greeted by the screen shaking and... this.

After this happens, you become stuck in one spot (but you can move around in circles) and if you go to the menu...

Argh! More qAF!

Also, choosing something and then exiting it will cause the screen to stay black and freeze.

Very minor, but... I'm just wondering, why DOES this happen?

Feel free to call me an idiot if this has been discussed before. :P
