Lock-up Trainer battle

Please note that this glitch only exists in the Japanese versions of the game, or is otherwise a glitch from a Pokémon game which was only released in Japan.

A lock-up Trainer battle is a glitch effect that occurs in Pokémon Red and Green.

For unknown reasons a number of glitch Trainer rosters will lock-up the game with the battle music playing and the player never gets the ability to battle them. NPCs will stop moving.

This glitch occurs for Trainers with all three different battle themes (normal, gym battle, champion battle).


  • Class 247 (Lance) roster 7 - Gym battle music
  • Class 246 (Agatha) roster 3 - Normal battle music
  • Class 243 (Rival champion) roster 31 - Rival champion music
