(↑ Back to the ItemDex index.)
(hex:C2) is a glitch item in Pokémon Red and Blue.
If the player attempts to use it from outside of battle, it may result in Professor Oak's message that it isn't the time to use the item. If the player attempts to use it from within battle, it may result in the message "Nothing happened!" and a copy of the item being used up.
Theoretically this may happen because the game attempts to modify glitch stat 0x8B (0xC2-0x37).
As this glitch item's index number represents the jp nz,$xxyy instruction, it may be used for an 8F (hex:5D) or similar glitch item code that redirects from the items pack to elsewhere (such as offgao's memory editor stored at boxed Pokémon data).
