The '''Pokémon merge glitch''', previously/also known as the '''Q Trick''' is a [[glitch]] in {{RBY}} as well as {{GSC}}, discovered by ACE91.
  
The '''Q Trick''' or '''Charizard 'M Trick''' is a Pokémon glitch which takes advantage of the [[Glitch Pokémon]] with an index number of 255, which appears as [[GlitchDex/Y:255|Q]] in Pokémon Yellow, or [[GlitchDex/RB:255|"Charizard 'M"]] in Pokémon Red and Blue.
+
Using a Pokémon which has an index number of 255 (i.e. [[GlitchDex/RB:255|'M (FF)]] in {{RB}}, [[GlitchDex/Y:255|Q]] in {{Y}}, [[?????]] (FF) in {{GSC}}) it is possible for the player to create a Pokémon known as an [[unstable hybrid Pokémon]], which has the attributes of two Pokémon.
  
This glitch allows the player to give nearly any attack to any Pokémon without the use of a cheating device. The Q Trick can also make a Pokémon have the stats and type of another Pokémon and can essentially combine the data of two Pokémon into one, with the species of one Pokémon and the characteristics of another.

===Obtaining 'M (FF) or Q===
 +
For the Pokémon merge glitch, the player should first obtain either an [[GlitchDex/RB:255|'M (FF)]] in {{RB}} or [[GlitchDex/Y:255|Q]] in {{Y}}.
  
To perform the Q Glitch, the player needs to have a particular Glitch Pokémon which occupies a [[hexadecimal|hexadecimal identifier]] of FF ([[GlitchDex/Y:255|Q]] in Yellow Version, or [[GlitchDex/RB:255|Charizard 'M]] in Red/Blue versions).  
+
'M (FF) can be obtained in Pokémon Red and Blue with [[- (Generation I move)#Super Glitch effect|CoolTrainer♀ corruption]] or [[LOL glitch]] by having [[:File:'M FF Route 1 CoolTrainer spot.png|a specific spot]] in a Route 1 [[Glitch City]] from the [[Safari Zone exit glitch]] as the last place the player opened the Pokémon menu. It can also be obtained by trading a Q over from Pokémon Yellow.
  
For example purposes, the following summary uses a Magikarp and a Rhyhorn. Their stats can be seen below:
+
Q can be obtained in Pokémon Yellow either by evolving a [[GlitchDex/Y:192|4 4 Hy]] (which can be obtained with the [[Ditto Trick]] using a Special stat of 192), or trading an 'M (FF) from Pokémon Red and Blue.

+
Both 'M (FF) and Q may also be obtained with the [[Pokémon Bank hex:FF glitch Pokémon glitch]], [[international fossil conversion glitch]] or [[arbitrary code execution]].

Presuming that the player wanted to give the move Horn Attack to a Magikarp. First, he or she would have select an empty box on the PC, and then deposit a Pokémon in the box (any Pokémon will work, but Rattata is used in this example). Next, the player has to deposit [[GlitchDex/Y:255|Q]] or [[GlitchDex/RB:255|Charizard 'M]] in the box. After that, the player has to deposit the Pokémon that he or she wants to gain the new moves, in this case Magikarp. Finally, deposit the Pokémon with the moves that the player wants the other Pokémon to have, in this case Rhyhorn. After depositing these Pokémon, the contents of the player's box should be similar to this:
+
===Method===
 +
1. Deposit any Pokémon into an empty box.<br>
 +
2. Deposit 'M (FF) or Q.<br>
 +
2. Deposit a Pokémon below the 'M (FF) or Q (e.g. Charmander). This will be the 'donor' Pokémon for the unstable hybrid Pokémon.<br>
 +
3. Deposit a Pokémon below the third Pokémon (e.g. Staryu). This will be the 'recipient' Pokémon for the unstable hybrid Pokémon.<br>
 +
4. Withdraw the first Pokémon in the box.<br>
  
* Rattata
+
In this example, the Pokémon merge glitch will have created both a 'M (FF) or Q/Charmander hybrid and Charmander/Staryu hybrid.
* Q/Charizard 'M
 
* Magikarp
 
* Rhyhorn
 
* CANCEL
 
 
However, because a Q or Charizard 'M causes all Pokémon below it to become invisible, the box would look like this:
 
  
* Rattata
+
The "Charmander" will have Staryu's name, moves and palette but will be able to learn moves a Charmander would be able to by TM/HM.
* CANCEL
 
* <br>
 
* <br>
 
* <br>
 
  
The player should acknowledge that the CANCEL button is really his or her Q/Charizard 'M, and that the three blank spaces are Magikarp, Rhyhorn, and the CANCEL button, respectively. Now, the player should withdraw the Rattata (or any other Pokémon above Q/Charizard 'M) and he or she would have just combined the two Pokémon. The contents of the box should now look like this:
+
It can be stabilized into a Charmeleon through evolution, or back into a Staryu either by depositing it into the Pokémon Day Care and out again or taking the Pokémon into {{Stadium2}}. It cannot be traded into {{GSC}} until it is stabilized.
  
* Q/Charizard 'M (Q/Charizard 'M)
+
{{youtube|ycsGJrGxLQA|glitchedgamer}}
* Q/Charizard 'M (Magikarp)
 
* Magikarp (Rhyhorn)
 
* CANCEL
 
  
The names in parentheses show which Pokémon each of these really is. The player's Rhyhorn has now become a Magikarp, and the player's Magikarp has now become a Q or Charizard 'M. However, these Pokémon have retained their own stats. Their stats should look like this:
+
===Obtaining Shiny Pokémon===
 +
Since the hybrid's DVs will be those of the recipient Pokémon, it is possible for the player to create a new Shiny Pokémon. It can be stabilized by evolving the end result unstable hybrid. For example, if the Staryu mentioned in the section above was originally Shiny, the Charmander/Staryu hybrid may be evolved to become a stable Shiny Charmeleon.

{{PRAMA|merge-glitch}}
 +
===Obtaining ????? (FF)===
 +
The Pokémon merge glitch is possible with a [[?????]] (FF). A ????? (FF) may be created by obtaining a ????? (00) from the [[bad clone glitch]] and converting it into ????? (FF) with [[????? party overloading]].
  
The player now has a Magikarp with the stats and name of a Rhyhorn. This is what is often referred to as an unstable [[hybrid]]. It is unstable because the data concerning the Pokémon's identification has been mixed up, and it is no longer a normal Pokémon. [[Hybrid]] Glitches could also be considered as unstable hybrids because they have some of the data of another Pokémon.  
+
The player should have a party of six Pokémon; and then bring the ????? (FF) to the top of the party. They should then use 'move PkMn without Mail' to bring another Pokémon to the top. This will convert the ????? (00) into a ????? (FF).
  
In order to stabilise this Magikarp, the player can evolve the Pokémon into a Gyarados. When this Magikarp becomes a Gyarados, its stats will become those of a normal Gyarados, but it will retain its altered moves. This Gyarados is now a perfectly stable, normal Pokémon. Stabilizing hybrids by evolving them is important if the player wants to trade the Pokémon to Pokémon Gold, Pokémon Silver or Pokémon Crystal because unstable hybrids will be blocked by Gold/Silver/Crystal's [[error trap]], as if the player had tried to trade a Glitch Pokémon.
+
===Steps===
 +
The player should set up a party like so:
  
Note that Magikarp and Rhyhorn aren't the only Pokémon which can be used in the '''Q Trick''' and that the player can simply replace the Magikarp and Rhyhorn in this demonstration with any other two Pokémon.
+
*Pokémon 1
 +
*Pokémon 2
 +
*????? (FF)
 +
*Caterpie
 +
*Shiny Gyarados
 +
*Growlithe
  
==Obtaining Shiny Pokémon / Alternative Colored Pokémon==
+
Upon depositing Pokémon 1 or 2, the Pokémon below ????? (FF) will hybridize. Caterpie will become a ????? (FF)/Caterpie hybrid, Shiny Gyarados will become a Caterpie/Gyarados hybrid (which can be evolved to become a stable Shiny Metapod) and Growlithe will become a Shiny Gyarados/Growlithe hybrid (which can be taught water moves and taken into the Day Care and out again to revert back into a stable Growlithe).
 
 
If the Pokémon that has the moves the player wants on a different Pokémon was a Shiny Pokémon in Pokémon Gold, Pokémon Silver or Pokémon Crystal, the resulting Pokémon, once stabilzed, will be shiny when traded back to a Generation II Pokémon game, however the player would have to stabilise the [[Hybrid]] Pokémon by evolution first, otherwise he or she would have that Pokémon blocked by an [[error trap]].
 
 
 
==How to stabilise [[Hybrid]] Pokémon which are unable to evolve==
 
 
 
In order to stabilise a [[Hybrid]] Pokémon made by the '''Q Trick''' which cannot usually evolve the player will need to obtain a copy of Pokémon Stadium 2 (as unstable [[hybrid]] [[Glitch Pokémon]] will appear as Rhydon Dolls and freeze the game in the original Pokémon Stadium 1 as well as being unusable, or in this case the last Pokémon before the player used the '''Q Trick''' but only temporarily in Pokémon Stadium 1. They do not change back permanently on the cartridge if transferred to Pokémon Stadium 1 but they do if transferred to Pokémon Stadium 2.)
 
 
 
==How to trick Pokémon Stadium 2 into changing a Hybrid Pokémon into an 'opposite' Pokémon==
 
 
 
This method will not allow the player's Pokémon to have the other Pokémon's stats but it will allow it to have attacks it wouldn't learn otherwise.
 
 
 
To do this method, simply perform the '''Q Trick''' as normal on the player's Generation I game. However this time, turn the Pokémon into the '''opposite''' of what the player wants it to be. For example, if the player wanted a flying Mewtwo he or she would turn the Mewtwo into a Pidgey as opposed to turning the Pidgey into the Mewtwo. The player can then teach the Hybrid Pidgey Fly, or any other moves which Pidgey can normally learn.
 
 
 
If the player uploads the Pidgey onto Pokémon Stadium 2's lab via a transfer pak he or she would notice that the Hybrid Pidgey would have changed into a Mewtwo. If the player looks at the Mewtwo's stats the game will show that it seems to be just a normal Mewtwo. However while its stats will be normal, its attack roster will not. The player will notice that if he or she taught Fly to the hybrid Pidgey the move would still be there on that Mewtwo. Also, if the player saves the game after moving around the Mewtwo in the storage system on Pokémon Stadium 2 would have permanently became a flying Mewtwo.
 
 
 
Effectively, Pokémon Stadium 2's [[error trap]] will also turn '''any''' Pokémon which was previosuly turned into a Charizard 'M/Q's by the '''Q Trick''' back to the original Pokémon, however any moves the player taught that Pokémon as a Q/Charizard 'M will be kept. It is possible to make Ditto or another Pokémon know attacks that they wouldn't normally know with either of these two methods.

The Pokémon merge glitch, previously/also known as the Q Trick is a glitch in Pokémon Red, Blue, Yellow as well as Pokémon Gold, Silver and Pokémon Crystal, discovered by ACE91.

Using a Pokémon which has an index number of 255 (i.e. 'M (FF) in Pokémon Red and Blue, Q in Pokémon Yellow, ????? (FF) in Pokémon Gold, Silver and Pokémon Crystal) it is possible for the player to create a Pokémon known as an unstable hybrid Pokémon, which has the attributes of two Pokémon.

This glitch allows the player to give nearly any attack to any Pokémon without the use of a cheating device. The Pokémon merge glitch can also make a Pokémon have the stats and type of another Pokémon.

In Generation I

Obtaining 'M (FF) or Q

For the Pokémon merge glitch, the player should first obtain either an 'M (FF) in Pokémon Red and Blue or Q in Pokémon Yellow.

'M (FF) can be obtained in Pokémon Red and Blue with CoolTrainer♀ corruption or LOL glitch by having a specific spot in a Route 1 Glitch City from the Safari Zone exit glitch as the last place the player opened the Pokémon menu. It can also be obtained by trading a Q over from Pokémon Yellow.

Q can be obtained in Pokémon Yellow either by evolving a 4 4 Hy (which can be obtained with the Ditto Trick using a Special stat of 192), or trading an 'M (FF) from Pokémon Red and Blue.

Both 'M (FF) and Q may also be obtained with the Pokémon Bank hex:FF glitch Pokémon glitch, international fossil conversion glitch or arbitrary code execution.

Method

1. Deposit any Pokémon into an empty box.
2. Deposit 'M (FF) or Q.
2. Deposit a Pokémon below the 'M (FF) or Q (e.g. Charmander). This will be the 'donor' Pokémon for the unstable hybrid Pokémon.
3. Deposit a Pokémon below the third Pokémon (e.g. Staryu). This will be the 'recipient' Pokémon for the unstable hybrid Pokémon.
4. Withdraw the first Pokémon in the box.

In this example, the Pokémon merge glitch will have created both a 'M (FF) or Q/Charmander hybrid and Charmander/Staryu hybrid.

The "Charmander" will have Staryu's name, moves and palette but will be able to learn moves a Charmander would be able to by TM/HM.

It can be stabilized into a Charmeleon through evolution, or back into a Staryu either by depositing it into the Pokémon Day Care and out again or taking the Pokémon into Pokémon Stadium 2 (English). It cannot be traded into Pokémon Gold, Silver and Pokémon Crystal until it is stabilized.

Obtaining Shiny Pokémon

Since the hybrid's DVs will be those of the recipient Pokémon, it is possible for the player to create a new Shiny Pokémon. It can be stabilized by evolving the end result unstable hybrid. For example, if the Staryu mentioned in the section above was originally Shiny, the Charmander/Staryu hybrid may be evolved to become a stable Shiny Charmeleon.

Obtaining ????? (FF)

The Pokémon merge glitch is possible with a ????? (FF). A ????? (FF) may be created by obtaining a ????? (00) from the bad clone glitch and converting it into ????? (FF) with ????? party overloading.

The player should have a party of six Pokémon; and then bring the ????? (FF) to the top of the party. They should then use 'move PkMn without Mail' to bring another Pokémon to the top. This will convert the ????? (00) into a ????? (FF).

Steps

The player should set up a party like so:

  • Pokémon 1
  • Pokémon 2
  • ????? (FF)
  • Caterpie
  • Shiny Gyarados
  • Growlithe

Upon depositing Pokémon 1 or 2, the Pokémon below ????? (FF) will hybridize. Caterpie will become a ????? (FF)/Caterpie hybrid, Shiny Gyarados will become a Caterpie/Gyarados hybrid (which can be evolved to become a stable Shiny Metapod) and Growlithe will become a Shiny Gyarados/Growlithe hybrid (which can be taught water moves and taken into the Day Care and out again to revert back into a stable Growlithe).
