== Egg Blackout glitch is not real ==
Under the orders of SnorlaxMonster and after a conversation with him after I asked him how to get it to work, he said that it requires a cheating device. Thus the glitch is fake and there's no way you can bypass trading your starter for an egg with another egg or just the starter for the egg with someone who has a full team of Pokemon without the egg. That's as if one person defeated Falkner and you haven't or if you have 2 games, defeat Falkner on one version and just barely begin another. For some other reason you need to have 2 Pokemon to trade but a lot of people get weird stuff to happen in a game either via gameshark or Action Replay, and the latter changes the game's coding while the former does not. Thus I have removed the glitch because it is deceitful and unfair to those without cheating or hacking devices, to use it to get an egg at the beginning of the game.

== White Out explanation. ==
I was a preteen when Gold and Silver came out, back when Clinton and Bush switched places. Anyways, even back then, I was under the assumption, and I remember (albeit on fan sites) verification that the term Black out was replaced with White Out over some kind of attempt at being political correct and racially sensitive. Especially after the Jynx thing started.
Another theory I had back then was that Blacking out is where everything goes black, and Whiting out is when everything goes white, or you loose consciousness for only a few seconds and do not lose time as you would with a full on black out. I vaguely remember in RBY the screen went black, but int Gold and Silver the screen went white, so that might be it?
Another theory, not of my own was a guy I knew back then, who told me that it took too much memory to black out the screen, and to save memory they stopped doing it. Still, to this day I kind of lean towards it being a Political Correct censorship thing. [[User:Yamitora1|Yamitora1]] ([[User talk:Yamitora1|talk]]) 09:50, 19 March 2014 (UTC)
== In other generations ==
Doesn't 'In other genarations' sound a little out of place? I mean 'Other' in comparison to what? I think it should be In the games, Gallery, Screenshots or something like that. --[[User:Raltseye|Raltseye]] ([[User talk:Raltseye|talk]]) 16:48, 1 May 2015 (UTC)
==Generation V evolution during blackout not actually possible==
I noticed during my initial run of White 2 that it is, in fact, impossible for Pokemon to evolve after blacking out if the player blacks out in the same battle they hit their evolutionary level. Leveling them further and not blacking out will make them evolve, though. Was this not the case in generations IV or VI? I never lost a battle while a Pokemon was ready to evolve in XYORAS, and I haven't lost a single fight in my ongoing run of Platinum. --[[User:MandL27|MandL27]] ([[User talk:MandL27|talk]]) 03:19, 27 June 2015 (UTC)

With a Lv. 10 Eevee and a Lv. 11 Teddiursa, losing against Navigator Berk in my first visit to Gateon Port led to me losing only {{PDollar}}176 of my {{PDollar}}5315, {{PDollar}}16 × the level of my highest-leveled Pokémon. I had not yet visited any Pokémon Center, but I continued from Acri's house in Gateon Port. Will do additional tests later. --[[User:Abcboy|Abcboy]] ([[User talk:Abcboy|talk]]) 20:14, 28 March 2016 (UTC)
:With a Lv. 59 Houndoom, losing against Chaser Laken in [[Gateon Port]] at the end of the game led to me losing {{PDollar}}944 of my {{PDollar}}126,787, {{PDollar}}16 × the level of my highest-leveled Pokémon. I still continued from Acri's house in Gateon Port. Both of the above were Double Battles, so I then tested a Single Battle in a new game. Losing against Chobin with a Lv. 10 Eevee led to me losing {{PDollar}}160 of my {{PDollar}}5000. I continued from the entrance to [[Kaminko's House]].
:It appears that upon blacking out in XD, the player will respawn in a specific location in the current area. In Colosseum, blacking out against Chaser Gurks in The Under caused me to lose half my money and respawn in the Phenac Pokémon Center, the last one I used. --[[User:Abcboy|Abcboy]] ([[User talk:Abcboy|talk]]) 16:23, 10 April 2016 (UTC)
