AttackDex/RB:177 (Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console)

(↑ Back to the AttackDex index.)


(Variable name) is a false Electric (0x97)-type glitch move in Pokémon Red and Blue. It is capable of causing Super Glitch.

Successfully using this glitch move without causing significant Super Glitch corruption (possible with a 0x50 sub-tile early in the saved screen data) may result in damage with Pound's animation.

If this move does not knock out the opponent, a freeze different to this glitch move's behavior on other hardware (such as the Game Boy) may occur. This is due to the Nintendo 3DS emulator ignoring unknown opcodes.
