Previewing edits

Utilize the "Preview" key prior to saving a page. This allows you to check your revisions. The edit you made to Red (game) left a bunch of red links that could have been easily fixed to go to the appropriate page. Also, Pokémon is spelled with the é. Thanks! --rockersk08 21:09, 5 October 2009 (UTC)

Doko-Kashira Door glitch

What is it? Can you write an article about it? --SnorlaxMonster 10:33, 17 February 2010 (UTC)

Done see link in title --Chickasaurus 12:07, 17 February 2010 (UTC)

It is basically an old glitch which only existed within Pokémon Green, I think the Japanese website were the first to document it and one of their users Giginet uploaded a video about it here [1]. It is a speed-runner glitch that several people have performed in order to complete Pokémon Green in about 5 minutes by altering a door warp to access the Hall of Fame early on.

This is how it works:

  1. In Pokémon Green there was an extra feature, as well as the player being able to switch around Pokémon he or she could also switch around items, the oversight however was that if the player pressed select and went to the Pokémon screen he or she would arguably be able to "switch an item with a Pokémon".
  2. Pokémon past the sixth slot (or the amount of Pokémon the player actually has) when called will refer to other data in the game such as what kinds of items the player has, the location the player is and so on. (This is kind of like how the Super Glitch moves works, the Super Glitch moves actually correspond to other in-game data, so if you use up its PP it can have strange effects in the game)
  3. So, when you 'switch an item with a Pokémon' you are essentially switching around data past the sixth slot (or in the Doko-Kashira Door glitch the first slot because it is ideal to only have one Pokémon)
  4. By adding data concerning Oak's Parcel to the database the player can ensure that the next door that he or she walks through corresponds to a relative number of steps.

I did make a step by step method, here it is:

  1. The player should firstly start a New Game.
  2. The player should withdraw a Potion from the PC, so that he or she has one item.
  3. Walk out of the door and procede into the tall grass, wait until Professor Oak takes you into his lab.
  4. Choose any starter Pokémon
  5. After Gary chooses his Pokémon, attempt to leave Professor Oak's lab.
  6. Either defeat or lose to Gary and then procede out of the lab and through the grass on the way to Pewter Town.
  7. Procede to the Pokémart (known as 'SHOP' in Pokémon Green) and recieve Oak's Parcel.
  8. The player should procede back to Pallet Town but ensure that he or she enters a wild Pokémon battle on the way.
  9. Move to the Items option and use the Select button on Oak's Parcel.
  10. Select 'Cancel' and then select 'PKMN'.
  11. The cursor should still be white, choose Bulbasaur to switch it with Oak's Parcel.
  12. Check Bulbasaur's moves on the 'Fight' screen, to check that the game has not altered any undesirable bytes.
  13. If Bulbasaur's moves have not been changed run from the Pokémon battle and then walk exactly 73 steps, landing the last step in Gary's house in Pallet Town.
  14. The player should be near the house where HM02 Fly is normally obtainable, walk another 5 steps to the right and the move down so that it looks like the player is attempting to move through the house's ceiling, it is the spot one step north of its right hand corner.
  15. The player should appear in the northern section of the Cycling Road House, walk 9 steps and aim the last step to be through the exit to the north-east corner.
  16. Walk an extra 45 steps eastwards aim the last step to be through the double doors of Celadon Department Store (the door to the right.)
  17. The player should now be in a glitched version of the Hall of Fame room.

Note that if performed incorrectly or later on in the game this glitch can have very different effects because it is essentially like 'switching data'. --Chickasaurus 11:06, 17 February 2010 (UTC)

BTW, I'm SnorlaxMonster, not Master (however I have considered changing my name to that before). --SnorlaxMonster 07:12, 22 February 2010 (UTC)
Oh, sorry about that well you can call me Trickersaurus now if you want :P --Chickasaurus 12:14, 28 February 2010 (UTC)

Is this accurate?


I'm sure I pretty much nailed it this time with making a new article and all? OwnageMuch 06:28, 8 March 2010 (UTC)

Pretty good, I'll just add a little more about the techncial information. --Chickasaurus 10:08, 8 March 2010 (UTC)

Just a little thing

That comment you posted on the Marowak (literal ghost) page? While completely true, you might want to note in future that reviving dead conversations on talk pages here, not allowed. That conversation hadn't been touched since Groundhog Day, and it is now May 21st, so yeah. Just thought I'd let you know. - unsigned comment from Missingno. Master (talkcontribs) 17:42, 21 May 2010 (UTC)

Thanks, I'll make note of that. --Chickasaurus 17:48, 21 May 2010 (UTC)

Game names

The remakes use CamelCase. HeartGold. FireRed. Not Heartgold and Firered. Also, the {{g}} template should only be used for non-main-series games, like Pokémon Colosseum and Pokémon Ranger: Locus of Light. Main series games use the {{game}}, {{game2}}, {{game3}}, and {{game5}} templates. So remember. Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, not Pokémon Heartgold and Soulsilver.

Thanks. --Chickasaurus 08:57, 30 May 2010 (UTC)

The Preview Button

Instead of editing a page several times in a row, try using the preview button to make sure your edit looks the way you want it to. It's right next to the Save Changes button... Please try it out, so as not to clog up the Recent Changes. Thanks! -- Jellotalk 17:00, 8 September 2010 (UTC)

Thanks; I usually check the Preview button 1-2 times, although I should really be checking it more. --Chickasaurus 17:28, 8 September 2010 (UTC)


Considering that it's your third favorite glitch item, I assume you know a little bit about it. Can you help me fix up list of dummied out key items and Teru-sama? If you can give me a list of which index number corresponds to which properties (such as which are key items, which are items; which act like the map and Poké Flute, etc.), I can use this info to fix the aforementioned pages. --SnorlaxMonster 06:48, 18 November 2010 (UTC)

Since you seem to be online...

Can you confirm this edit please (don't worry, it's not yours)? I was under the impression that it was the opposite. --SnorlaxMonster 13:40, 3 January 2011 (UTC)


thanks for replying to my q - unsigned comment from DJLO (talkcontribs)

Preset players names and the old man glitch

I noticed in the comments section of this video you mentioned that preset names cause the old man glitch to behave differently, due to appearing one-after-the-other in the data. Would the following list be accurate for the English games? --SnorlaxMonster 08:40, 29 May 2011 (UTC)

Johto guard glitch

About 3 weeks ago, I made video what happened after using it. Here's video (Ledian disguised in summary as Sentret, and Sentret disguised as Hex FF ?????) Marked +-+-+ 18:44, 21 June 2011 (UTC)

Debug menu?

I'm very interested in this supposed debug menu you mentioned on Talk:Pokémon_Red_and_Green_beta, but the video is marked as private. Do you have more info about how to access this menu? HyperHacker 05:52, 26 September 2011 (UTC)


I appreciate the re-write of the glitch Pokémon page trivia, I was stupid and forgot that none of the Pokémon acctually follow their propper order in HD code. Also, is there anything you need help in with glitch research? I'd be glad to help.--×Rsrdaman× 21:48, 18 November 2011 (UTC)

Kage no Mushi

Where did you find its artwork? I've never seen it mentioned anywhere. -Unown Lord 09:48, 6 December 2011 (UTC)

I, too, found the DeviantArt page after making a cursory Google search. In fact, I also contacted SailorClef, so she's probably going to wonder why two people happened to ask her the same question on the same day. -Unown Lord 04:27, 7 December 2011 (UTC)
I have yet to receive anything from SailorClef, but we have a mutual acquaintant (SmearglePaints) who told me this: "I'm aware of the discovery. SailorClef is a good friend, so she actually did forward me the E-mail you sent. The artwork has already been added to Bulbapedia, so I'm guessing there's some interest in it. Neither of us recall the archive, but I'm sure with some devoted digging we could probably turn it up at some point." -Unown Lord 06:37, 7 December 2011 (UTC)

Project notices

Only articles that are really considered complete get the full Project Notice. -- ✔Poké.geek✔ 18:03, 19 December 2011 (UTC)

Um, that's not true. All articles that are part of the project get project notices. --SnorlaxMonster 06:26, 21 December 2011 (UTC)
Ataro said that to me, see this.-- ✔Poké.geek✔ 18:39, 22 December 2011 (UTC)
I belive he was talking about manga pages which do not get a notice until they are completed. Truthseeker4449 19:29, 22 December 2011 (UTC)
Oh, I see!-- ✔Poké.geek✔ 19:46, 22 December 2011 (UTC)

Pokédex flags

I appreciate the creation of that page, but could you please notice that many of the names there are wrong accdording to Bulbapedia's conventions? Since you're the one that exploits those kind of things in glitches, I'm asking you to review those names and replace the wrong ones with the equivalents shown on the official list. Sorry for the trouble, but the fact is that the page has been creating a bunch of unique red links regarding glitch pokémon, which I (someone who has no way of knowing the equivalent of some of those) am having a hard time to remove. So please... thanks. オリナル TheOriginalOne 19:57, 3 September 2013 (UTC)


Chickasaurus, I was wanting to make videos for this wiki, but nobody I asked knew what free software I should use. SnorlaxMonster pointed me out to you, so what program should I get? Also, if I could do commentary, I'd enjoy that. Thank you! Irtehmrepic (talk) 17:40, 15 December 2013 (UTC)

Focus Energy

Azure Heights offers an explanation. Their research was entirely empirical, but it looks like it is only possible to score a critical hit with increased critical-hit-rate moves after using Focus Energy. From the looks of it, Smogon uses Azure Heights' data (otherwise I would expect specific values). --SnorlaxMonster 15:26, 25 February 2014 (UTC)

About the edit I did in the Mew glitch article

Hello, Chickasaurus! Well I saw that you undo my edit in the article Mew glitch. I know you give me a reason, but I need more info. It said that: "To remedy this, after escaping the long-range Trainer, the player must visit a PC and save the game indirectly by switching boxes." How can I access the PC if the buttons are not functioning? Also, you made the section more clear, but that is not my point (but that will be good). To access the PC, you must press A in front of it. But how can I access the PC without the functions of buttons? I will not edit the page for now. Thank you! User:Pokéfan95 (talk) 07:16, 02 March 2015 (UTC)

Re2:About the edit I did in the Mew glitch article

Ok, I now believe in you. Also, see my comment in Youtube (my name in Youtube is Job Bautista). User:Pokéfan95 (User talk:Pokéfan95) 2 March 2015, 11:33 (UTC)

Some glitch stuff

Hello, I've got 2 things you wrote that I think you should review:

オリナル TheOriginalOne 11:31, 21 August 2015 (UTC)

Deer Image+ Higher Res Early Seel Design

Chickasaurus: Looking into it, I was able to find out that the "hair" that you described was actually a part of the sprite for some reason. As you probably know, this: was the link where you got the early Seel design from. Look closely enough, and you should also be able to find the deer, and look even closer and you should be able to find the line that was supposedly "hair". Also ontop of that, I found a non-blurry version of the early Seel sprite as well as the elephant here: You might have to scroll down, but the tweet with the aforementioned image should be there.

Thanks for reading all of this. Gs22033 (talk) 18:20, 27 May 2018 (UTC)

Unused trades from Crystal


on the article In-game trade, the content not going to a new line is because in the first line, you unnecesarily placed "rowspan" into the header row. I removed the "rowspan" attribute. --TheICTLiker4piszże do mnie 07:44, 10 November 2019 (UTC)

User:TheICTLiker4/E O

I'm wondering if all the information in the article User:TheICTLiker4/E O is correct... --TheICTLiker4 08:41, 18 January 2020 (UTC)

The Preview Button

Instead of editing a page several times in a row, try using the preview button to make sure your edit looks the way you want it to. It's right next to the Save Page button. Please try it out, so as not to clog up the Recent Changes. Also, if you want to edit multiple sections of the page, make sure that you click "edit this page" at the top of the page rather than editing it by section. Thanks! --ForceFire 05:27, 13 October 2021 (UTC)

Preview Button

Please do not make 14 edits to a page in a short timespan as you did on the Game Freak article. Making this many edits in a short period of time not only clogs up the Recent Changes, but unnecessarily increases server load and stress, which is always a concern but especially right now with the issues that the server has been having over the past few weeks. Please make liberal use of the preview button and take your time to make your edits as good as they can be before saving changes. And remember you can edit multiple sections of a page at once by clicking "edit this page" at the top of the page. Thank you. Landfish7 04:51, 16 June 2022 (UTC)

I'll stop sorry. I didn't realise I made 14 edits at once. I should really finish these somewhere else like on a word document. Chickasaurus (talk) 06:21, 16 June 2022 (UTC)
That sounds like a good idea. I know of other people who also use something like word, google docs, or notepad to periodically save changes they've made to wikicode without needing to publish them to the wiki itself. Landfish7 06:25, 16 June 2022 (UTC)
