So, what exactly does "Teru-sama" mean? --TIMMY 06:14, 12 July 2007 (UTC)

The Teru-sama can be sold at a high price, so it could be used for PokémonDollar.png, right? - unsigned comment from Optimus35 (talkcontribs)

Doesn't "-sama" denote a far higher level of respect and importance than "Mr./Mrs."? I mean, "Mr./Mrs." is usually associated with "-san", and "Lord/Lady" with "-sama"... right? Or am I mistaken? --Pie ~ 07:14, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

What does its Japanese name mean?--PikamasterADV 02:04, 13 November 2007 (UTC)

Kanto map

But is it the GSC Kanto map, or the RBY one? I assume GSC but... TTEchidna 20:06, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

The GSC one. However, when I try I get Johto, not Kanto:
The colors are different only because the map starts fading out as soon as it appears. IIMarckus 03:38, 14 January 2009 (UTC)
Must be because you're in Johto. What index number is this version of the Teru-sama? I'm eager to hack away at Gold. TTEchidna 17:31, 2 April 2009 (UTC)


Do we have a sprite for the Teru-sama? ZanderX 08:53, 9 November 2008 (UTC)

Gen II items didn't have sprites. Those were introduced in Gen III. Since Teru-sama is a Gen II glitch item, it can't have a sprite. - Kogoro | Talk to me | 09:00, 9 November 2008 (UTC)

Become GS Ball

anyone have proof that it can actually turn into a GS Ball? -- MAGNEDETH 18:15, 9 November 2008 (UTC)

At least I've never seen any proof, I've just heard rumors. I think it's not true. UltimateSephiroth (user · talk · contrib) 18:17, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
It can’t. Teru‐Sama has nothing to do with the GS Ball. Despite this, somehow it has become ingrained in people’s minds that it is somehow related to it—but there really is no relation whatsoever. Teru‐Sama has as much relation to the GS Ball as it does to the Egg Ticket. IIMarckus 18:20, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
To be honest, I'm just going by all the rumors i've heard, which is a surprising amount for it not to be true. ~~Takoto| サソデイ 18:22, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
Nonetheless, the rumors are false. Try it yourself—get each individual Teru‐Sama with a Gameshark (there are over 30). Kurt won’t accept a single one. IIMarckus 18:26, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
I have always wanted to try it, but I don't have a Gameshark. I used to, but it broke a while ago. ~~Takoto| サソデイ 18:27, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
Hmm... I could try this on VBA if I have spare time. Then we'll get rid of this once and for all. UltimateSephiroth (user · talk · contrib) 18:30, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
as the resident hacker, i guess its up to me to prove it or not... -- MAGNEDETH 18:23, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
Given that the Teru-sama is sellable, I'd wager that a Teru-sama is holdable as well. One question is on my mind: Is a Teru-sama tradable? (Or will the game detect it as a weird item and not link up?) If so, it's quite possible that a certain individual Teru-sama can indeed turn into a GS Ball if traded to Crystal. --Shiningpikablu252 19:57, 9 November 2008 (UTC)

My friend- an adept hacker-got a bunch of Teru-Samas and at least one became a GS Ball. As for the trade, that's an interesting theory... I'll get back to you on that one... Kiryu 23:36, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

I've wondered if "Teru-Sama" is actually a typo of "Teru-Tama", i.e. "Sunshine Ball". That would at least make more sense than "Lord Sunshine." HyperHacker 00:43, 26 May 2009 (UTC)
That would make a lot of sense, yeah. ~~Takoto - サソデイ 10:48, 26 May 2009 (UTC)

I have a Monster Brain which shows the GS Ball in Crystal (English version). I have tried that and the Teru-sama in the corresponding slot of Gold (English version) and neither work. Wikipedia has stated that the GS Ball will never work in the English version of Crystal because the routines required for the event were left out of all non-Japanese language versions. Unfortunately, they have watered-down their Pokémon entries so much they only state that it cannot be caught, but not why. I have just confirmed this one last time. What do the hackers hack? ROMs? If it only works in ROMs, say so. ROMs should not count anyway. White Phoenix 07:13, 3 October 2009 (UTC)


What does this name mean, if it even means anything? Yamiidenryuu (talk) 22:26, 29 July 2012 (UTC)

The Japanese wiki says it may be a combination of Kabigon (Snorlax) and Pikachu. The word itself is meaningless. --SnorlaxMonster 05:55, 16 September 2012 (UTC)
That's... an odd origin. I saw another source saying it might be a misspelling of "gabichu" (garbage), which would make a bit more sense, but I guess there's no way to tell, huh? Yamiidenryuu (talk) 16:29, 16 September 2012 (UTC)

Hi! I know alot about this item. The Teru-sama has a meaningful japenese word.--UltimateglitchDECTETIVE (talk) 00:10, 9 December 2012 (UTC)

So it means what? --Abcboy (talk) 00:12, 9 December 2012 (UTC)
We already know what "Teru-sama" might mean. I'm asking about "Kabichuu". D: Yamiidenryuu (talk) 02:44, 9 December 2012 (UTC)

Using it?

The article states that two Teru-samas can be used, by I just got all Teru-samas in Pokémon Gold via hacking and none gave me the option of using it when I selected it. What gives? - Ericss (talk) 14:01, 27 May 2013 (UTC)
