Or maybe it isn't a beta, maybe it is an error trap.
error trap? what?
The consequences of letting an incomplete code loose is probably higher than the risks of a BadEGG, even though they are slightly incomplete.

It may have very been beta in Ru/Sa/Em, but it was clearly intentional in D/P, since it has it's own slot.

It has its own slot in 3rd Gen too. I stand by my theory that it is an error message that designates corrupt Pokemon data of some sort; Pokemon that are improperly generated via cheating. This may in fact be a way of catching cheaters, but it only catches those who aren't careful enough to make sure they generate the Pokemon properly. It also does not catch cheaters who use encounter codes.

For me they just appeared randomly while using codes from a real generator...You know, versions (not games, VERSIONS, like for instance FireRed v2) of games might be a good topic.
PS. In other words, m the Ruby I had at that time was most probably a different "version".

I think that Bad Egg was intentional because GF wants to help stop cheating :P
Idiot people. Cheating makes a game more fun!

It is still not encouraged, as it can mess up your game, however.

That, or transfer all your good stuff to a safe version and then take your older game to hell.

Back on topic, is it possible to be hatched? Is it set to 65536(FFFF) or infinity steps?

I think steps are 8 digit. It was way more than just 65536.

I've heard of Bad Egg either

1. Never hatching

2. Hatching infinitely

3. Hatching into another Bad Egg

4. Freezing

5.Hatching into ? in a circle or the double white ??.

Don't know if all of those are true, though :/

The only thing that it would hatch into would be another bad egg right? Because eggs have to have the hex of what they hatch into right? Bad egg's would probably be itself!
