The Sandstorm Spikes glitch is a glitch in Pokémon Gold, Silver and Crystal. It allows the player to live a turn in battle with the third Pokémon on 0 HP. If this is a wild battle and the player escapes; it is reported but not confirmed on video yet, that the player can proceed to walk around on the overworld with no active Pokémon; causing the instant victory glitch.
In order to activate the glitch, a Pokémon must faint from Sandstorm and three Pokémon must consecutively faint from Spikes first, but more clarification is needed. The glitch was documented on the Pokémon Crystal disassembly.
