Finding/Encountering Bad Eggs without cheats?

I had a Pokemon Ruby cartridge that my sister played on that really had a terrible spell of luck in terms of Bad Eggs. There were at least 2 instances I can recall where a wild pokemon was a Bad Egg, and one of the trainers in Watsons gym had a Bad Egg. I remember once I tried trading with her, and when the game crashed during the trading sequence, every single one of her pokemon turned into Bad Eggs. Nothing we did could remedy it, besides turning off the save.
In my Pokemon Sapphire cartridge, I remember one instance of simply turning on my game and seeing my party just full of Bad Eggs. In my Firered, my daycare had a Bad Egg and I never cheated once in that game.
I cheated on my Pokemon Leaf Green cartridge and interestingly never encountered a Bad Egg, only an odd save error that forced me to delete the save.
It seems that everytime I try to research Bad Eggs and why they happen, Im always met with the conclusion that cheating is always the case when it isnt a lot of the time. The anti-cheat measures in these games are extremely finicky, and Im assuming that the more physical wear the cartridge faces, the more this tends to happen. Im absolutely not remembering things wrong, Bad Eggs were stuck in my memory before I even got a hold of a gameshark years later.
Anyone else have similar experiences?
