Glitch Pokémon id F4 ( p )'s Pokédex entry

This effect can really only be conveyed with a video; but some images also are on Bulbapedia.  I am uploading a video, which will be at  Video upload failed and will be reuploaded when I have access to windows.  Video is now being reuploaded and should be at

If you want to see the relevant pictures, look at it's Pokédex entry on bulbapedia

So, this Pokémon has a weird entry.  I don't know what causes it, but whenever it occurs, a message box repeatedly shows " p learned MASTER BALL".  (It may vary by item; I caught it with a master ball).

Eventually, it displays " p is trying to learn".  Then, the game freezes.    While this is happening, weird glitch music plays.

What's especially odd is that this effect occurs nearly every time.  (Occasionally, the game crashes).

Additionally, I've had this effect occur in REVERSE with female symbol: " . is trying to learn" repeatedly, followed by " . learned [Something, I forgot…]", all with very similar glitch music.

Has anyone else seen this?  I have no idea if it is just a side effect of TheZZAZZGlitch's debug rom, but I doubt it is so.

hmm. I'm right now suspecting Super Glitch-style effects.

This post is in a large font because I somehow decided using glitch Pokemon names as images in text would work well.  Clearly, it didn't.

[size=16pt]I know [img][/img] courrupts ram, as if you watch $C000 (start of the many sound control bytes), they all get randomized.  So it may be that ocasionaly [img][/img] corrupts enough ram to trigger this effect.  Why this effect occurs is beond me, though.

Also, here's something I remembered about [img][/img]: viewing it's stats screen ALSO trigers glitch music.  (Though no glitch messages.)  Mabye it has to deal with the ram bank.  [img][/img] doesn't trigger a glitch song when sent into battle. 

Oh yes.  Fair warning: Most of the songs I have gotten from [img][/img] are high-pitched.  So keep that in mind.  And it's probably a concidence, but both [img][/img] and [img][/img] trigger glitch music.  So, gendered pokemon make music. 

Also, the video I linked broke and is now private until I reupload.  Youtube, why can you sometimes handle 30-minuite videos but NOT 3-minuite ones?  Does youtube do this to anyone else?[/size]
