Teru-sama (Japanese: カビチュウ Kabichū) is a filler for the internal item list in the Generation II games. It can be obtained by using glitches.
Teru-sama can be sold for 19,660 at Poké Marts. The buy price of 39,321 is 0x9999 in hexadecimal or 9999 in binary-coded decimal (BCD), the latter being the format used by the Generation I games for storing money data. The Generation II games instead use plain binary integers for money instead of BCD; however, the buy Teru-sama price uses the old format, suggesting that they were added early in the development of Pokémon Gold and Silver.
The Teru-sama in the Bag (Japanese versions)
The Teru-sama in the Bag (Korean versions)
Teru-sama, as the Western name, may be a reference to Teruki Murakawa, a member from the staff of Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal listed as a programmer under "US Version Staff" in the English versions and in the staff of the European versions. He is also mentioned as being part of "Korean Coordination" in the staff of the Korean versions.
The Japanese name Kabichū (カビチュウ) is meaningless but it combines kabi (カビ) from Kabigon (カビゴン) and chū (チュウ) from Pichu, Pikachu, or Raichu.
Its Korean name is just the fullwidth question mark "？".
