Main Page

Welcome to the Glitch City Laboratories wiki! We are a Pokémon fansite dedicated to the various glitches and quirks of the game series.

We have Template:NUMBEROFARTICLES+ pages.


Glitch City Laboratories is in the process of shutting down its forums and wiki and transitioning to a read-only archive. To this end, the wiki has been locked so non-administrators cannot edit it.


  • All pages — All pages on the wiki.

  • Major glitches — The most powerful glitches, such as those that allow you to obtain any Pokémon in the game.

  • Glitches by generation — A parent category of seven categories of Pokémon glitches by generation. Useful for looking up any particular glitch.

  • The Big HEX List — A reference table for index numbers and matching Pokémon, items, moves, characters and Game Boy ASM opcodes!

  • Databases ("Dexes") — Exhaustive lists of specific glitch Pokémon, glitch items, glitch moves and other glitch things, overflowing with information on their stats, effects, and other intricacies.

  • Interactive tools — Tools that will help out for planning a specific outcome from a glitch, such as the old man trick name generator which is an easy way to know what old man trick name will yield what Pokémon.

  • Reference documents — Pages not directly related to glitching, but containing info on topics such as other exploits, easter eggs, unused content, GameShark codes, in addition to how and why it all works.
