(hex:9F) is a glitch item in Pokémon Red and Blue.
It is an unterminated name glitch item, hence provides the effects associated with those glitches and allows for glitches such as Yami Shop glitch and LOL glitch.
If a 0x50 sub-tile is early enough in the saved screen data, then this item will give Professor Oak's message that it isn't the time to use the item. This applies to both from outside and from within battle (via GameShark code 0150A0C3 or theoretically OAM DMA hijacking.)
Although its use effect is likely taken from Old Amber (hex:1F), it doesn't count as a fossil that can be resurrected at Cinnabar Island.
