I’d totally never have known this. That’s some pretty amazing foresight.

Though the mechanic would involve you releasing all your Pokémon bar one before it’d ever surface. You’d have to trade, use Poké Transporter or deliberately release everything before you find yourself hitting rock bottom. It kinda feels like a niche scenario for you to ever find yourself at Cianwood, hey.

Definitely a pretty neat thing to discover after all this time. Makes you wonder what prompted the inclusion of the feature: extremely good foresight from a developer, a very thorough bug tester, or an incredibly incompetent bug tester. :P

Definitely a cool find - not surprised this sort of thing took over 10 years to find but it's still quite a while!

Good question. HGSS did have a lot of stuff crammed into it, with the director of those games on record of wanting to deliever that sort of experience, so that might have filtered down to accounting for strange edge cases such as this.

I wonder if there's something similar programmed in any of the other games, since HG/SS isn't exactly the only game you can have the problem occur in.

I'm actually amazed by this, great to see things still being discovered in Pokemon games 10 years later! Pretty cool that it can be shiny too.

This is honestly an amazing find. Truthfully speaking though, I think I maaaaay have discovered this on accident a few years ago, but thought nothing of it at the time. I feel like I remember this happening to me. Who's to say for sure though.
