I also do not believe this glitch is a stub

'''Inverted sprites''' (also known as '''Scrambled sprites''' or '''Reversed sprites''') is a side-effect of encountering certain [[Glitch Pokémon]] in the [[Generation I]] games.
 
==Effects==
[[File:InvertedSprites3.png|thumb|160px|Once one uses an attack, the enemy Pokémon's sprite breaks as well.]]
 
As the name implies, this glitch causes the sprites to appear backwards or flipped. This x-mirroring effect is used in the stats screen normally, but is only intended for front sprites and does not react well with other things. <!-- This is from my own research and guesses, so further investigation would be good. However, this appears to be the case due to the way to fix them. --> For instance, the trainer sprite and back sprites get a "glitchy" appearance when flipping is attempted. In addition, while the front sprites flip properly originally, once the sprite is updated (through attacking), it breaks. The effect causes no permanent damage on the game however.
 
==Fix==
To fix the effect, the Pokédex entry or stats screen of a non-glitch Pokémon needs to be viewed. <!--Todo:{{GlitchResearch|What happens when you view a glitch Pokémon? Does it work there?-->}}

==Official Nintendo statement==
[[Nintendo]] has an official description of [[MissingNo.]] listed in their Customer Service troubleshooting section, which includes a nonworking method of fixing the effect:
