Glitches

  • Bypass Cycling Road Guard

    To get onto the Cycling Road without needing a Bicycle, simply hold Left while the guard warns you that you must have the Bicycle to enter Cycling Road. (If you already obtained the Bicycle, this still works if the Bicycle is in the PC.) In doing so, you will bypass the guard; if you continue onto Cycling Road, you'll still ride a bike.

  • Duplicate Pokemon!

    You need a link cable, 2 pokemon games, and 2 gameboys for this trick. On 1 gameboy, have a strong pokemon that you both want. On the other, have a weak pokemon that your willing to give up for the other one. Enter Trade mode and trade pokemon. On gameboy 1 (the one with the good pokemon), turn off the gameboy right before it says ''Trade Complete!''. The 2nd GB should say ''Trade Complete!'' on it. If done correctly, the bad pokemon on GB 2 should be deleted and replaced with the good pokemon. The good pokemon on GB 1 should still be there.

  • Making Items more than 100!

    You need the HM Fly and Surf to do this glitch. Put the item you want to duplicate in the sixth slot of your inventory.

    Go/fly to Viridian. Talk to the old man that ask you if you're in a hurry at the beginning of the game. Say no. Watch him show you how to catch a Pokemon.

    Now fly to Cinnabar Island and surf on the right edge of the island. You should be able to battle a weird Pokemon called MissingNo. It's appearance is kind of weird. Don't let it attack you or don't capture it or it will ruin your game! Just run or beat him with powerful quick attacks.

    After that, look at your sixth item and there should be a weird symbol next to it. Don't worry, it only means that you have more than 99 of it.

  • The Old Man Glitch *new*

    This glitch requires you to have the Badges allowing the use of Fly and Surf, and Pokemon that can use these moves. You must also be able to reach Fuschia City or Cinnabar Island. First, head to Viridian City and speak with the old man near Route 2 who will teach you to catch Pokemon; view his tutorial. After doing so, Fly to Fuschia or Cinnabar and Surf to the Seafoam Islands. Once there, Surf on the coastline of the islands. As you Surf, you may encounter a number of odd Pokemon. These Pokemon will differ, depending on the name you used as that of your Trainer. For example, the name "DANIEL" can make Snorlax or Electrode appear, among others. However, a common characteristic of them is that they are often above Level 100 and thus very powerful: if you manage to catch one somehow, you essentially have a very powerful Pokemon, and can even level it up further, as high as Level 255. (Note that some Pokemon may evolve into glitch Pokemon because of this.) That is the first benefit of this simple glitch. Most people, regardless of name, should be able to encounter one of two Pokemon: Missingno. or 'M, both of which are glitch Pokemon. These two have special effects on the item in the sixth slot of your item bag, but that effect depends on whether you catch or defeat the Pokemon. If you defeat the Pokemon (or otherwise just do not catch it), the item in your Bag's sixth slot will be changed so that you have 128 of it; if you catch it, you will have 255 of it. (This is assuming you use an item that you can have multiple ones of.) This is very useful for mass-cloning valuable items, such as Master Balls, Rare Candies, or PP Maxes, or to clone TMs to sell for obscene amounts of money.

Secrets

  • Get through grassy areas without a single random encounter.

    Once you've obtained the HM Cut you can use it to teach some of your pokemon the attack of the same name.
    This ability now cannot only be used to cut down certain trees but also to get rid of any grass so you don't have to bother with any random encounters.
    When saving and loading or leaving and reentering the area you used cut in, the grass will have returned.

  • Infinite Steps in Safari Zone.

    This trick is very simple. Find a patch of grass in there. Stand in it and just tap the directional pad lightly just so you would turn without walking. You should encounter a pokemon and catch it if you would like.
