Recovery move glitch
REDIRECT Template:Misc R/B/Y
The Recovery move glitch, also known as the Softboiled/Rest/Recover glitch is a glitch in Pokémon Red, Blue, and Yellow.
If a Pokémon uses Softboiled, Rest or Recover and the difference between its current HP and maximum HP is 255 or 511 (or theoretically any other integer which can be represented in the hexadecimal form XXFF), the move will fail.
This glitch was fixed in Pokémon Stadium.
