If anyone can make sense of this, it might go on this page:
The best trick in the game to take advantage of the glitch of item copies. this allows you to copy any item that is not a key item. (coin case, hms) this lets you copy items such as rare candies and other items. first you go do the misingno trick and keep on trying unitl a pokemon called m' apears. note that its very rare. but worthwile. the thing that happens when you beat him is that the sixth item splits into two. so now you would have two lists of rare candies.
Hey, this guide says to not catch missingno as it could mess up your save game. According to bulbapedia, looking at a normal pokedex entry will fix any glitches after releasing missingno. It does not mention any issues with save game as this seems to be a myth perpetuated by folk legend or possibly a misleading press release from Nintendo about the glitch. In other words, missingno corrupting your save is a myth. Should this caution be removed? http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Missingno.#Official_Nintendo_statement --188.8.131.52 03:24, 22 March 2014 (UTC)
- I actually agree with you. Missingno. is treated just like any other Pokemon in the game. So there shouldn't be any harm in catching it. StarCraft (talk) 14:58, 22 March 2014 (UTC)
Glitch City Labs
There is a TON of info about MissingNO, item duplication, and other glitchy fun, including Pokemon modification without a GameShark on Glitch City Labs.
For now, here are some basics that should be added to the Secrets page:
Old man trick
The Pokemon you encounter on Cinnabar Island using the Old man/MissingNO trick are not set in stone, nor are they random. They are determined by the name you chose. When you talk to the old man in Viridian city, your trainer name gets stored in the place in memory where grass encounters are stored, so that the game can display OLD MAN in battle. The shore tiles on the east side of Cinnabar and on the west side of the Seafoam Islands is treated as tall grass when surfed upon. Name characters in Pokemon R/B/Y have hex values higher than 100 (the hex value for capital A is the same as the number 128, and it only goes up from there), hence why you encounter Pokemon stronger than level 100 when you do this trick. This tool will show you what Pokemon you find using this trick, as well as making a name that will give you the Pokemon and levels you want.
The Almighty 8F
There is a way to obtain an item that allows you to reprogram aspects of Pokemon R/B, given enough time, resources and a solid understanding of Z80 assembly. 8F (hex value 5D) is an item that causes code execution to jump to the area in memory where party data is stored. Under most circumstances, this causes the game to crash, but if you set up your party just right, you can create and execute any valid code you want. This includes walking through walls, obtaining any Pokemon you want, escaping from trainer battles, and so much more. Here's the forum page on GCL. It's crazy what you can do with this one item.
I noticed this talk page hasn't been updated in 3 years now, so is this necromancy? And if so, is that a bad thing? I'm just created this account to share this info.
