It is functionally identical to 9F in the English versions of Pokémon Red and Blue.
If used outside of battle, it leaves the menu box graphics open but technically closes it. The screen data will be saved if the player opens the start menu however, making it useful for glitches such as Rival LOL glitch.
In a non-scripted wild Pokémon battle, it leaves the menu box open but allows the player to open the menu with Start and partially escape from battle.
In a scripted wild Pokémon battle or a Trainer battle it causes the battle to restart.
Repeated use of this glitch item can be used for corruption of the stack.
