(hex:AA) are glitch items in Pokémon Red and Blue.
It is an unterminated name glitch item, hence provides the effects associated with those glitches and allows for glitches such as Yami Shop glitch and LOL glitch.
A stray "D" and "H" (Red) or "E" and "Y" (Blue) also seems to be printed as part of this glitch item's name below "NEW NAME". This may be due to its full name being "NEW NAME(0x4E)RED(0x4E)ASH(0x4E)JAC" (Red) or "NEW NAME(0x4E)BLUE(0x4E)GARY(0x4E)J" (Blue) with the 0x4E control characters telling the game to go to a new line.
If a 0x50 sub-tile is early enough in the saved screen data, then it seems to always bring up Professor Oak's message that it isn't the time to use the item. This effect is likely shared with Helix Fossil (hex:29), but the fossil scientist at Cinnabar Island's Pokémon Lab won't recognise it as a fossil.
