From Glitch City Laboratories
The "Amazing Man" is a non-playable character in the first generation of Pokémon games that jumps to places that normally he would not be able to reach. There are many variations recorded.
This glitch only works in some language versions of Red and Blue. It does not work in any version of Yellow or the Spanish versions (and possibly others) of Red or Blue.
Celadon City's Amazing Man
- Fly to Celadon City and deposit your Bicycle into the PC. Walk east toward Cycling Road.
- When you go inside the building, walk straight across towards the alternate exit.
- When the guard talks to you, forcing you to walk up to him, look behind him to see this:
Cinnabar Island's Amazing Man
- Fly to Cinnabar Island. Make sure you have not unlocked the door to the gym, nor the key from the Pokémon Mansion.
- Surf a bit in the eastern beach, and get out directly below the gym.
- Continue walking to the left until a message appears reading "The door is locked...". Look on the roof to find this:
His location will change depending on how far away you are from the gym when you exit the water. If you land directly in front of the gym, he will appear where he is in the picture. If you land one space below the gym, walk along the coast up to the gym, and then turn left so you are in front of the door, he will appear one space lower than the picture. Land 2 spaces away from the gym, walk along the coast, and then when you reach the gym walk in front of the door, and he will be two spaces lower from the picture. Thus, being three spaces away from the base of the gym and walking along the coast to the front of the door, you will be 3 spaces lower than the picture.
The Amazing Man of Cinnabar can also appear directly below the player if the player goes to the front of the Cinnabar Gym after exiting the Pokémon Lab in Cinnabar. The steps to activate the glitch follows:
- Exit Pokémon Lab.
- Walk right until you cannot go right anymore without surfing.
- Walk up until you're stopped by the gym.
- Walk left one space (you should now be in front of the gym). The glitch should activate; this will appear:
Cerulean City's Amazing Man
- Go to Cerulean City and walk north towards the Nugget Bridge.
- Make sure that the first trainer is one space above the screen. (He is not visible, but if you walk one space north he will appear.)
- Walk north and press start at the same time to see:
