Well it's expected with any product.. what do you expect of a Mass Produced product made in the Millions, shipped worldwide to meet demands of a World Wide release. It's inevitable for there to be defective copies.

Just like how you can buy any product (especially mass produced) for it to not work or have defects (i.e. electronics, cars, furniture, etc).

Also I am sure it has happened in D/P/P and B/W. only problem with those is that they are all easily hacked/glitched. So if someone got the Bad Eggs without doing anything illegal, without hacking/modding, when they report it on a forum or somewhere, People just reply accusing them of hacking, glitching, or using an Action Replay, so it gets ignored.

But reason why it seems to not go as ignored or seems more significant with Gen 6 X&Y is because it's on a whole New System, has no glitches/hacks available for it publicly, and no Action Replay.

I think they just can appear for anyone at anytime after doing anything.. just if something processes wrong, glitches, corrupts, receive extra data, or fails a checksum, you can find yourself a bad egg. So if receiving a Mystery egg after a Wonder Trade is coincidence or not, if it hasn't happened to you yet, then it's probably never going to happen. Maybe those few people who indeed get their Bad/Mystery eggs after wonder trade, maybe it's that portion of their Game Cartridge that controls Wonder Trading that's corrupted so it get's triggered when they do. But your guess is as good as anyone else
This is what I've always thought. I've never seen proof of people getting bad eggs through wonder trade, but if some people have, it's probably because of some corruption in their individual game cartridge that's messing up the data. It makes people scared to wonder trade, because they'll get a "bad egg", but a bad egg is really just another name for corrupted data, not an actual thing someone can give over wonder trade or anything like that. Like sorrow said, if it hasn't happened to you yet, it's probably never going to happen-- your cartridge is clean and just fine, as it should be. ;P

Get your very own Lovecraftian horror in an egg today! Is it bad that I actually want to find one of those in Y? I used to get a few in Sapphire from some badly written AR codes but that was years and years ago.

Well, considering having a "bad egg" in X&Y seems to mean your game cartridge is corrupt (which is very different from the bad eggs of previous generations, which typically resulted in failed AR codes), it's definitely nooot something fun to find. ;P

I was actually thinking the same thing Despite the obvious drawbacks (overwriting the Pokemon in your PC at random is not cool), I think it would be fun to experiment with.

missingno was only in red blue green? I'm pretty sure that's the only games it was in. There are rumors of bad eggs in gen 6. I'm not sure if any reputable source has confirmed it yet though. Until someone debunks or confirms it I would still be weary of receiving eggs in trades...if rumors are true that the bad data is a malfunction/ hack in the wonder trade, then you'll know as soon as you receive a egg via wonder trade that its bad because you aren't supposed to be able to trade/ receive eggs in w.t.

Bad eggs form because the data is corrupted. It is likely that it's actually sending null data, because the message "The egg looks like it's about to hatch!" is indicated by a low number of steps, but it will never hatch if that value is below 1. The dates are cleared to 0 because of the same reason. It's likely that something that is being nulled out is being sent through for some reason, either corruption of the initial game or a communication error. The game uses the error handler BAD EGG to help prevent the game from crashing. I'm not sure why they clone though. It's likely because empty spots are also null, and the game may mistaken them for additional null BAD EGGs.

If this is the case then a good solution for GAME FREAK would be to abort all trades that somehow result in the receiver obtaining a null Pokemon.

They are called mystery eggs now btw(i guess since their location is in a place called mystery zone) and bad eggs existed in past games and missingno i think only existed in gen 1

the most recent pokemon games i played before y was ruby firered and emerald and i can say for sure missingno was in ruby and emerald because i gamesharked them but i cant vouch for firered because i played it legit or gen 2 because i barely remember playing it. its safe to say it was in there too because that was gen 3. it appeared either as a double question mark or a question mark in a black and white circle. google image search. as for wonder trade thats a good excuse for me to keep away from using that because the last thing i need is my game getting destroyed because someone wanted to hack 999 rare candies and event exclusive pokemon

In red & blue version you ran into the missing by performing a in game glitch to get multiples of items. Whatever item was in your 6th ( I think ) slot would be multiplied by a random amount when you encountered missingo. You encountered him by talking to the guy in viridian city that will show you how to catch a pokemon. Directly after that you fly to cinnabar island and go surf the half land half water edge to the right of the town next to the gym. You run into the glitched up thing at different levels, and sometimes you could even run into pkmn from different areas of the game at levels 120+. I used to spend so much time going through missingos hoping I would run into that lvl 120+ random pkmn and it be a gengar or an alakazam bc when I was younger sadly I had no link cable... fun times. Needless to say I never did nor do know if it was possible. But that was how you got 999 rare candys and master balls back then if you didn't have a gameshark or game genie

I've heard of this, but I've never experienced it or seen it occur. I haven't been offered one or seen one on the GTS, either, nor in WonderTrade.

I wouldn't worry about it too much.

I got the bad egg twice in Sapphire...not sure why as I didn't use any hacking device on it, probably just a glitch.

I hope I don't find one...I want a remake of Sapphire (and Ruby) not a remake of that bad egg I encountered to happen in Y 0_o...

One of the bad eggs I encountered in Sapphire erased my save file when I did that...and this Mystery egg is said to be worse...so maybe turning it off won't work

I read that that wouldn't help anyway. WonderTrade itself saves before you even see what you're getting via trade. Once the screen goes black and you select your Pokemon, the trade internally is done, even if you haven't seen the Pokemon yet.

I had a connection error occur after selecting the Pokemon I wanted to trade off. It was looking for someone to trade with, found someone and my connection timed out. I turned my DS back on and looked in my box and my Pokemon was replaced with a new guy! So once that screen where it shows who you're trading with is gone, you've internally traded that data already, thus turning it off would be of no use

I think it's preventive to make sure people use the feature properly and don't just shut the DS off if they don't like what they see / get.

Well if receiving it from a trade or wonder trade the game file saves you are pretty much screwed. The recommendations given for the previous gen bad eggs were to isolate it in a separate box away from all off your other pokemon. It has been said that it might currupt other pokemon and replace them with other bad eggs or in the worst case erase your game file. This has never happened to me personally and would never want it to happen.

I didn't know "bad eggs" existed in X&Y until I read this. Just glad I haven't came across one yet!
