Notability criteria, redux
Over at [[Bulbapedia_talk:Project_GlitchDex#Notability_criteria|Project GlitchDex]] I recall that we decided that [[Generation I]] glitch Pokémon are "notable" if they can be caught without using a Gameshark, so we kept the number of articles at the 24 listed in the table here. However, recently I'm seeing articles like [[$]] and [[......]] appear. These glitches cannot be caught in-game without a cheat device. Now, I'm not for deleting them per se, but y'all do realize that there's about a hundred more out there, right?

:I would say that hose are the only real "glitch Pokémon." They are glitches because the player is not supposed to be able to encounter them throughout normal gameplay. However, anything that requires an Action Replay or similar device is not a glitch pokémon, because the pokémon can not be encountered without cheating. True "glitch pokémon" are the ones from the Mew Glitch and Missingno glitch in gen 1, and the bad egg in gen 4, because apparently they can be encountered in random patches of grass that appear when one is tweaking. To put this in perspective, if I entered a bunch of random numbers/letters into my action replay, started Pokémon Diamond, and the game froze, that would not be a glitch.
