Has anyone on D/P/Pt ever had a Pokémon go missing?


I know I had a slugma, because I saw it in a box yesterday (took magcargo instead) because I heard it speeds up the hatch times of eggs.

I was organising my boxes today in the PC and noticed that the slugma was no where to be seen (not in daycare either, or in my party).


Has anyone else ever noticed a Pokémon disappearing? Is there some way to protect my legendaries/rares from going?

(the pokédex entry for slugma still says "caught").

as far as im aware none of my pokemon are missing. but that is a good question, it could be a glitch =/ i wish i could help sorry :(
I feel fine, and I can smile... but I feel the anger coming.
It's underneath; I don't know why it's always overflowing.
It's a constant fight, deep inside, and I want to forget it!

I confess; I'm always afraid, always ashamed of what's inside me.
I confess; I'm always afraid, always ashamed of what's inside my head...!

I can breathe, and I can feel... but not the way I want to.
I'm on the edge; I don't know how I can escape this nightmare!

I confess; I'm always afraid, always ashamed of what's inside me.
I confess; I'm always afraid, always ashamed of what's inside my head...!

Wasting away is part of my instinct.
I'll put away everything I hate.
Take this away, help me escape; take this away, I confess... innocence!

Innocence! In-no-cence!

Yup. I was trying to find my Shiny Crobat a few months ago and I didn't find it. I wasn't even sure if I traded it though.

Sounds like I'm not the only one.

Is this bug documented at all? Is there a particular box that it happens to, or are there conditions that cause it to happen?

Does anyone have any Pokémon that have just appeared?

I lost a Kricktune that I just recently caught in Pokemon Pearl, I just found it weird when it was gone and no one touched my game because I guarded that game all the time

I lost my Riolu :( so I had to cheat one with AR to get my Lucario... I put it in the Daycare, then went and did some business, when back and picked it up (paid 900 PokéDollars because it leveled from 29 to 37) and I went to put it in my box because I was going to take out my Luxray (<3) and I saved and turned off because it was getting late, and I came back to it tommorow, and... GONE! Checked the day care... nothing :'(

In Gold, I did have a glitchy Hitmontop appear in my PC. Its data went in my pokedex too. No gamesharks; it's just an old game.

Other than that, I'm not sure of any minor PC glitches. Even if something disappeared in my DPPt file, I wouldn't notice, as my PC is quite disorganized.

I lost my Mewtwo from FireRed.
He was in my box, I turned off my DS, then I came back a few months later and he was gone. I also haven't cheated.

Well, I emailed Game-Freak (they are freaks for f@&king us all around like this) and they say that it was probably caused by people turning off the game during a save...

I was like... YER because we all do that don't we -.-

I am guessing it something to do with a Hexadecimal digit that black holes everytime we turn it on.... and their programming happens to sometimes place our beloved Pokés in those hexadecimal memory spaces...
So that this happens

000 --> Pokemon placed in box --> 81f (random) --> Save game successfully --> Turn off --> Turn on again --> Black holes the hexadecimal digit to 000 --> Pokémon erased...

But thats all a wild guess
