Does MissingNo exist anymore? Did it fade away into Pokemon history? If it does, where is it? The truth is out there, we just have to find it!
And what about the "Glitch Kids"?
Trial 1-Pokemon Platinum 3 Bar Tag Battle Glitch
Lets do this
After seeing numerous things about a Tag Battle glitch, I decided to try this. You may have seen this one before, enter a Tag Battle with two Pokemon, one of them has to have 0 HP. When the player enters the battle, they will send out the first Pokemon, the other will be three white bars, and it will sparkle as if it is shiny.
My test: Armed with Empoleon (I named MissingNo, hoping it would bring good luck) and Golduck, I entered the 7 Stars Restaurant (That place near Pastoria City). With my "MissingNo" and 0 HP Golduck, I tried to challenge two of the Trainers in a Tag Battle, but it said I needed two Pokemon. I had two Pokemon, so what if one of the Pokemon had no HP? The game shouldn't be that smart! But this got me thinking, if it said I needed two Pokemon when I had two, maybe this is a glitch?
MissingNo is an elusive creature, only brought out by a series of events, maybe I did things wrong, maybe I wasn't using the right Pokemon, maybe I didn't talk to the right people. Whatever happened, I don't think it always works, kinda like the R/B "Old Man" Trick
Trial 2-Pokemon Emerald Pomeg Berry Glitch
While playing around on Glitch City Labs, I found a glitch that sounded cool, it was called "Getting an abnormal amount of HP". Wondering how to pull it off, I kept reading.
That sounds strange
To do this glitch, have a Pokemon that has 3 HP, give it a Pomeg Berry, it's base HP should go down by one, doing it again should make it go down by two, causing the Pokemon to have 60000-some HP.
My test: Before fighting the Fortree City Gym Leader, I had caught a Mighyena, it had one HP because I used False Swipe. After beating the Elite 4, I was at the Battle Frontier. I had decided to try the Glitch, since I had already finished the game, there was nothing to lose. Using my Pomeg Berry, It said Mighyena's friendliness went up, it's HP can't go lower.
The glitch was done wrong, after screwing things up, I realized I had alot of Pomeg Berries after doing stuff. I have not tried it again since, I now know that the Pokemon needs 3 HP. Next time, I will not screw things up like Team Rocket.
Trial 3-Pokemon Emerald Cloning Glitch
This one might work
Another Generation 3 glitch is the Battle Tower Cloning Glitch. I heard about this awhile ago, and wondered if it worked. To do it, go to the Battle Tower, deposit any Pokemon in any box, save, take that Pokemon back out, enter the Link Battle room, when it asks if it is o.k.to save hit yes then turn the game off. Return to box 5 the pokemon in the box will be the exact same Lv. and the item it was holding will be cloned too.
My test: Wondering if I can have 100 Groudons,Kyorges, and Rayquazas, I flew to the Battle Frontier on my Swellow, entered the Battle Tower, and did the trick above, I deposited a Lv 70 Groudon holding a Rare Candy. I was surprised when I checked the P.C box, there was a Groudon, Lv 70, holding a Rare Candy! Still thinking the whole trick was fake, I deposited Swellow in the P.C box to migrate it. Now, I saw something weird. Remember that Groudon? I had one in my team, it was Lv 70, and holding a Rare Candy! It even had the Same attacks! The Glitch really worked...
Finally, a glitch worked. This one doesn't cause any weird effects, this is a great way to get lots of rare items! Remember the Pomeg Glitch? I used the this one to get lots of Pomeg Berries.
The "Glitch Kids"
The "Glitch Kids" is just a name I made up to describe the G/S/C Glitches and the other ones like Invisible Shiny and ???BADEGG???. This evil group are the Glitches that can screw up the game.
Invisible Shiny vs. Ditto: Using a Ditto, I will try to Transform Ditto into the evil creature.
Hatching ???BADEGG??? : Using a Rare Candy, I will try to get to the bottom of the ???BADEGG??? mystery to see if it evolves, I also will try trading it to see if it evolves, meaning it must be a Gravler, Kadabra, or one of the Pokemon that evolve through trades.
We still don't know if MissingNo still haunts us. He seems to be replaced be the "Glitch Kids". If you have a glitch that might be a connection to MissingNo, post it as a comment. Will the MissingNo mystery ever be solved? Join me next time when we will explain more Pokemon strangeness!
