Bulbapedia also has an article about Celebi Egg glitch (party method).

The Celebi Egg trick is a glitch in Pokémon Gold, Silver and Crystal. It allows the player to obtain an Egg that hatches into a Celebi. An advantage of this glitch over the Celebi trick is that the Celebi is registered into the Pokédex.

The bad clone glitch (one of the parent glitches of this trick) was documented by Paco81, as was his early methods on obtaining Celebi.



1) Obtain an Egg with a Pokémon that would know Beat Up as its third move after hatching. To do this, raise a male and female Sneasel to level 57 with the same moves and make sure Beat Up is at move position 3.

2) Obtain a bad clone:

In order to get a bad clone you should deposit more Pokémon than you have ever deposited in a box (and at least 5 or so), then change boxes and reset the game shortly after the Yes/No box disappears (Gold/Silver) or after SAVING... DON'T TURN OFF THE POWER. is fully printed (Crystal).

Getting a bad clone is normally difficult but Pokémon Stadium 2's Game Boy Tower makes it a lot easier if you reset the game after the "Saving..." message appears at one of the aforementioned moments.

To identify a bad clone, the bad clone may be female with a glitched name and become level 1 after you withdraw it from the PC.

Main steps

1) Deposit the bad clone into Day Care and out to stabilize it into a ?????.

2) Put the bad clone at the top of the party.

3) Use move PkMn w/o mail to move a seventh Pokémon to the top of the party.

4) Don't touch the party, and ask the Day Care lady to raise the ????? again. This time don't take the ????? out of the Day Care yet.

5) Deposit the first Pokémon and then the second Pokémon, and use move PkMn w/o mail to move the Egg to the top of the party.

6) Deposit Pokémon 2-6, which may shift back bytes for the Egg's name each time. After the depositing, Beat Up [0xFB] (move 3) will shift into the Pokémon species byte 2, allowing you to obtain Celebi after hatching the Egg.

7) Use the Bicycle to cycle around until the Egg hatches into a Celebi.

8) If the Celebi is level 0, raise its level through taking it into Day Care and out, a battle, or a Rare Candy. Ideally raising it to level 1 will allow it to learn its starting moves Leech Seed, Confusion, Heal Bell and Recover.


The Celebi/Pokémon will be holding an item based on the ID of move 4.

If possible, this glitch can be used with another move as move 3 to obtain a Pokémon other than Celebi. This depends on the ID of the move, which will be converted into a Pokémon ID. For example, Flail (hex:AF) would result into Togepi (also hex:AF).

To see which IDs correspond with which moves, Pokémon and items, refer to The Big HEX List.
