So I wondered: What's a bad clone of an EGG like?
So… I made one!
*checks evil egg*
Hmm. A bunch of question marks and other randomness. Nothing weird so far.
So I put the egg in my party using the Move option, and in my party it's name was ? instead of Egg. In it's description, it said it was making sounds and about to hatch! SWEET!
So I'm doing laps around Saffron City for what seems like HOURS and I'm like "Why hasn't it hatched yet?!" so I check its stats again. This is what it said:
"This egg will take a long time to hatch."
o.o Where had I seen THAT message before?! This wasn't the usual "What will hatch from this? It will take some time" nonsense I usually get. Wait! That's it! Yes, on the Generation 3 bad Eggs! Ecstatic, I exited the GB Tower and checked its stats in Oak's Lab. Sure enough, a very similar message. (I don't remember what exactly, but it was along the same lines of "taking a while")
WHOO-HOO! So I put it in my box where I "quarantine" all the weird (stabilized so no longer evil and infectious…Stadium 2 does a nice job of cleaning up any corrupted Pokemon that weren't the original bad clone. Shame their trainer is and name and everything stay messed up…) results of my bad cloning and then I go to bed, happy with my awesome discovery.
The next morning, I look in my box for my rotten Egg.
It wasn't there.
ARRRG. It must have been deleted when I put it in the box and saved…. >_<
Ah well. Wasn't going to hatch any time soon anyway. :P
