The perpetual spinning glitch, also known as the spinning glitch, is a glitch in Pokémon Red, Blue, and Yellow.


If the player performs the Safari Zone exit glitch but makes their 500th step be on a spinning tile, the effect will persist while walking normally until the player uses another spinning tile.


Furthermore, depending on the location that the glitch was set up, it is possible to temporarily change the player's overworld sprite to a different one while the glitch is in effect. For the English versions, the correspondences are as follows:

Location Type of sprite
Pallet Town Professor Oak
Viridian City Professor Oak
Pewter City Girl
Cerulean City Girl
Lavender Town Boy
Vermilion City Girl
Celadon City Police officer
Fuchsia City Swimmer
Saffron City Boy
Cinnabar Island Professor Oak
Indigo Plateau Police officer
Other locations Girl
