Okay, I would like to know if this is just some internet rumor or that it's true. Does it exist in ANY of the games? I was under the impression that it doesn't, seeing as there are many websites that claim to have several ways to 'access' it by doing some things or catching certain Pokemon. Doesn't Bill ask to see all the evolutions of Evee? Or did I dream that?

No, it doesnt exist. Trust me. I happen to know one of the people who started that rumor, well, at least around my neck of the woods. Bill's Backyard was a hoax to begin with.

He doesn't. He already has them and asks you to look at their entries via his PC in the Sea Cottage.

So, yeah, it doesn't exist. Easy way to point this out is the fact that there's actually no set version as to how to do it (I've heard everything from there needs to be a couple of Geodude in your party to all three legendary birds in a certain order to all three Eeveelutions and three Eevee in a certain order.), nor are there screenshots of what the area looks like. There's also no map data coded for a secret area accessible from the Sea Cottage or the map/key/important item you're supposed to get in some versions in order to access it.

That's not the secret garden. There actually is a secret garden, but it doesn't have anything interesting. You have to use a glitch to get there.

HOW TO GET TO BILL'S BORINGLY SECRET GARDEN

Requirements:
A Pokemon that knows SURF
A Pokemon that knows FLY or TELEPORT (to get out, because otherwise, there's no way to get back in the regular game!)

Steps:
1. Go to Bill's house at the cove, but don't go in.
2. Go to one place that has SURFable water up from you, and the barrels on the other side (By barrels, I mean the things that keep you from going out of bounds)
3. Walk towards the water, and you should hear the can't go there sound. Keep doing that, and without letting go of the button, press the START button.
4. Save and reset your GameBoy or VBA.
5. Once you start playing again, your character should be facing the water instead of the classic down.
6. Without moving, press START and start SURFing. It should surf down, right onto the barrel!
7. Keep SURFing, and go to the land next to Bill's house. That's Bill's Boringly Secret Garden. To get out, use FLY, TELEPORT, or reset the game.

There. That's my explanation of Bill's Secret Garden.

I wouldn't call that a secret garden so much as a glitch to get to the patch of land beside the house. The myth refers to the space behind the house, which looks like it leads out to another map (but actually doesn't).

Same thing with using the Glitch City variant. While it's possible to screw with the Sea Cottage using Game Shark/AR (and possibly the Glitch City process), it's just the Sea Cottage, not a secret place supposedly behind it (which is what the myth refers to).

It does exist, but it's a pointless glitch with no real rewarding after-effect.

Interesting video. It's cool to see glitches like that happen. However my question is the same as one of the comments; can you encounter pokemon in that patch of water where you're not meant to be? and also can you go onto land on that cliff edge to the side? I'm assuming not, but itd be cool to see lol

Again, the Bill's Secret Garden/Mountain myth refers to a place behind the house, not next to it. Notice how there's a space behind the house that appears to lead to another map (because the mountainside appears to be unfinished)? There's been speculations for years on whether or not it does, and really, it doesn't.

The glitch exists and actually works, yes, but you can't access the place that the myth refers to through it. All you can access is the side of the house.

And to crocadilius, no, there's no Pokemon to be encountered in that patch of water as far as I know from experimenting. It's mostly because you're not supposed to be there anyway.

Bill's secret garden is probably not true,
Other people say that there are legendaries
here but Bill only likes Rare pokemons so it's probably not true!!!
