Returning Kenya with only Egg in party glitch
« on: January 05, 2018, 10:14:35 pm »
I recall seeing a page a few years ago with some pictures of returning Kenya/a pokemon holding its mail with only an egg in the party, losing the Pokemon, and only having the egg afterwards, with some stuff happening with battles. Unfortunately I can't find anything on this now, but I was able to replicate what I was thinking about!

Normally, you can't return Kenya/mailmon if it's the only one left in the party, but it seems the game doesn't check for eggs. (Or possibly fainted pokemon?)

With the egg being the last one in the party, I was able to use its contained Pokemon in battle and maintain its level after hatching.  Reminds me of the Pomeg glitch in the sense of letting you use eggs.

This was a quick proof of concept video I just recorded, so it's probably not the best or fullest demonstration, but it's documented here now. Though it is a modified save from a romhack, the game is vanilla Crystal and this is likely possible in Gold/Silver as well. It may even work with the gift Shuckie in Cianwood.

tl;dr: returning Kenya with only an egg in the party leaves you with only an egg in the party that you can fight with

This doesn't work in vanilla Gen 2 as Eggs are given with 0 HP, preventing you from giving Kenya away.

That's a shame. I guess PKHex or the hack messed with the structure of the egg I imported from an earlier save. Sorry for misleading people, I should've confirmed with legit circumstances before making a video. I've edited the video title and description to reflect that this can't happen under normal circumstances.

Now I wonder what page exactly I remembered originally that had info about this "glitch" since it isn't actually possible to do normally...
