Glitches

Battle leaders over and over again....

First you save in front of a PC and then you go and battle the Gym and its leader. When you finish, go and clone the pokemon that grew levels. When you turn your game back on you will be in the Pokemon center BEFORE you battled the leader but if you look in your PC you will find the Cloned Pokemon. Exchange the pokemon and save when you have your raised ones in your party then you can do it again.
Note: This trick will fill up your boxes so every three times you do this trick release the extra pokemon or switch boxes.

Belly Drum Error

Belly Drum is a move who normally suffices to maximize the user's Attack to quadruple its normal value while simultaneously removing 50% of their current HP. Thus, the move is supposed to not function if at under 50% HP. However, you can still use Belly Drum: if you do so, the game will claim that it failed, but it actually did raise your Attack 2 stages (like x1.00 Attack to x2.00 Attack). This is because the command for Belly Drum is akin to 6 Swords Dances: however, one of the six routines is erroneously used prior to the HP deduction.

Bug-Catching Contest Pokemon Duplication (JP v1.0 Only)

This glitch allows you to copy Pokemon with the use of only one cartridge of a game. You will need six Pokemon for this, two of which are filler. In the second slot, you want the Pokemon of the desired species. In the sixth slot, you want the Pokemon of the desired nickname, gender, types, moveset, statistics, and IVs and EVs. (Thus, if the sixth Pokemon is Shiny, so shall be the resultant Pokemon.) The other four can be filler Pokemon, but be sure someone in the party can use Fly or Teleport.

Begin by putting the Fly/Teleport Pokemon in the first slot of the party. Now, deposit the third, fourth, fifth, and sixth Pokemon in your party into the PC. Enter the Bug-Catching Contest on Tuesday, Thursday, or Saturday per the in-game clock and go to the front of side exits when you are in the contest. When asked to quit, say "No" and then Fly or Teleport away. Put the second Pokemon in your party into the PC. Save and reset the console and then return to the National Park. Speak with the guard at the front or side entrances and opt to quit the contest.

After learning the results of the contest, you will receive a copy of the sixth Pokemon in the party, who is of the second Pokemon's species.

Duplication

NOTE: This requires at least two pokemon, and access to a PC.
First, take the pokemon you want to duplicate, put it into your group. Make sure you have a box with at least one free slot. Save your game in front of your PC. Then, go to the box, and deposit the pokemon. Exit the box, go to ''Change Box,'' select any box, and while it's saving, turn off the Gameboy.

NOTE: Make sure that you do it while the message ''Saving, do not turn off the power'' is still there. Otherwise it will not work.

Turn on the Gameboy, the box should be the one that you deposited the pokemon in. You should have the pokemon in your group and have the same pokemon in your group.

Easy Shiny Ditto/Mew

Note that this glitch involves the use of trading between Pokemon Red/Blue/Green/Yellow (R/B/G/Y) and Pokemon Gold/Silver/Crystal (G/S/C). It will easily result in a Ditto or Mew whose is Shiny, and thus automatically having above-average stats (as is the norm in Pokemon G/S/C). First, you must trade any Shiny Pokemon - a Pokemon whose color is different than normal - from Pokemon G/S/C to Pokemon R/B/G/Y. Any Shiny Pokemon will work, including the Shiny Gyarados you automatically find during gameplay. While on the latter, you need to find a Ditto in the wild: Mew will also work if you use other glitches in those games. While that battle occurs, have the Pokemon that was Shiny be in-battle until Ditto or Mew Transform into that Pokemon. Catch the Ditto or Mew thereafter. Once you do so, trade that Ditto or Mew to Pokemon G/S/C. In doing so, you'll figure out that the Pokemon was Shiny.

Easy Breeding!

If you capture a Ditto you can use that for breeding. The Ditto will act as the female, so you wont have to get two of each type of Pokemon that you want the baby form of it. For Example just breed a Ditto and a Pikachu, and you will get a Pichu.
