Ow, I have heaps with Crystal. The Pokemon battle centre in Viridian or Pewter, whichever one, it glitches when I battle the second player it comes up with a billion '?' and his Pokemon is level 0 and has no attack apart from Surf. When I attack it comes up with '???????????????????????????????????????????????'. It doesn't crash, but it doesn't let me do anything either. :(
The first glitch I ever found was the Alternate Dimension glitch in Gold :P crazy to think it was my kindness that made it happen. I forget where he is but that man with the machop who is trying to flatten the ground to build a new building, I thought he was a side quest or something, cuz he wasn't ever actually getting to the building stage lol so, 10yr old me thought, 'perhaps he's broke?'
So (after I had talked to his machop to make sure it was still doing the same thing as last time) I went into my coin bag (since it seemed to be the only place with some form of money I could click on) and tried to give him some money for his building.
But when I did, the game reset itself and put me into a magical land of visable Ho-Oh's, crazy color blocks, and self-illuminated caves :o
That's crazy, haha. I wanna try it on my Crystal game.
Wow!! I can't believe it, this is word for word EXACTLY what happened to me!! Seeing as this has happened to two of us, I'm willing to bet we are not the only ones.
@PrincessMio I'm just curious.. You say this happened in Crystal version? I'm pretty sure they fixed those issues as far back as Yellow. Are you sure it was Crystal?

Def Crystal. It's the only Gameboy game I played up until last year when I played red for about... 10 minutes.
Probably the Missingno. Glitch in Blue, although I didn't "discover" it perse.
I suppose the one that just happened was the glitch dimension in Silver.
The famous Glitch City ( http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Glitch_City ), with my Pokemon Blue. I didn't exactly discovered it though, as it was reviewed in a Pokèmon magazine at the time and I wanted to try it, so I followed step by step the guide in the magazine and eventually succeded.
Your average Cartoony Wolf!
Either the glitched coast tile, as I happened to encounter something that shouldn't be in the water at all (I think a pidgey or something) right next to Seafoam Islands, or most likely something regarding a pokémon's stats over the PC.
Nothing very interesting unfortunately. I had to be told about the Safari Zone and Missingno and all the more interesting ones.
@HorizonGirl The only reason I'd think that could happen with a normal cartridge, is if both Red and Crystal didn't clear and initialize the memory correctly respectively, leaving for a few seconds random garbage in some part of the RAM that Crystal might pick up and eventually make it crash.
But that simply can't be it because I don't think the Gameboy retains anything in memory for more than an instant after powering off, and if it did it'd be quite a crazy coincidence to happen more than once.
So yeah, it's unexplainable. Even if it's a bad copy of the game, that it does that only and every time after glitching up Red...
@Infinity Mk-II Yeah, I've been researching glitches for so long, I've become mostly desensitized to the "creepy" factor of a lot of them. But due to the unexplainable nature of this one, it still keeps me up at night sometimes. Possessed GBA much? XD
I'd say it's a coincidence, but the fact that I've seen it happen five or six times without fail, that kind of rules that possibility out. This was about 8 years ago, and I haven't done it since because the possible risk to my Crystal save file was making me uncomfortable. But now that I'm thinking about it again, if I ever find my GBA, I'll try to post a video. No guarantees though, I'm not even sure it still works! :(
