Best way to get glitch Pokemon in Japanese Red?
« on: March 13, 2018, 09:33:43 am »
According to my research, the old man glitch does not work in Red/Green and the Mew glitch will only get me Pokemon with the index numbers 190-199 (provided they don't crash or freeze upon encounter), any reliable method to get the glitches with index numbers 200-255? Of course there's the fossil conversion glitch, but that may be quite tedious to do with 55 Pokemon (not to mention I've got a few questions about that whole process). I don't have any Japanese Generation 2 games, so the Johto guard glitch is out. Also, I'd like to mention that I am on cartridge. No emulators for me :/

I'd like to do research on glitch Pokemon in the Japanese games, document my findings, and possibly add them to the "international" portion of the GlitchDex since that section is tiny right now. Of course, what I find may not be consistent with what others may find but every little bit helps, no? :) If anyone wants me to share my research notes in the future, feel free to let me know.
I apologize if I go on a tangent about anything, it's one of my favourite pastimes.
