Haha you can get all three starters without trading!

Gotta love the cloning glitch! :) has anyone else notice that you can get all three starters on their own.
PBR: :)

Yeah, I remember one user in particular doing a lot of experiments way back with the cloning glitch to see what else could be done with it besides straight-up copying, and I think this was the main thing of interest.

Save before you take the starter.
Play until you can catch another pokémon.
Catch another pokémon, deposit your starter to the PC.
Save, turn off power while saving.

The starter will be in the box when loading the save file from before you picked a starter. It won't have its data registered in the pokédex, though.

Damn, makes me feel old when I realize how many years it has been since I found out :(

That's a cool glitch. Wish I would have known that back in the early days.
