The bad clone glitch is the parent glitch of many glitches possible through a ????? in Pokémon Gold, Silver and Pokémon Crystal. It involves first obtaining a bad clone and then using it for glitches such as ????? party overloading or Time Capsule exploit.
Obtaining a bad clone

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.
