    Like the other Tips and Tricks, we'll be listing helpful (and competitive!) tips/glitches that make the game easier. For now, I plan on focusing on the cartridge games; however, Pokémon Staduim can easily be added if anyone knows something about the game (I never had it).
    _____________________ __________________________________________

    RBY Tips and Tricks

    Cloning Pokémon
    Pokémon can be cloned in Gen I by abusing the trading mechanic. All that is needed is two Gen I games with a Pokémon to be cloned on on cartridge and a Pokémon that can be deleted on the other cartridge. Both games must also have progressed to the point that trading is possible.

    To start the process, begin trading the two Pokémon. When the screen reads "Waiting...", shut off the game that had the Pokémon to be cloned on it. After restarting both games, the cloned Pokémon will be present on both cartridges while the other Pokémon is deleted.

    It shoud be noted that Pokémon can also be cloned by switching boxes in Bill's PC, although this method tends to result in corrupted game data and loss of saved games. The steps to this glitch can be found in the Generation II Tips and Tricks compilation.

    Walk Through Walls
    Using the Walk Through Walls glitch allows the player to bypass many of the storyline elements that keep certain areas unreachable. Collecting hidden items, skipping dungeon puzzles, and encountering Mewtwo early are all made easier via this glitch.

    Method:
    -Get one of your Pokemon poisoned.
    -Once one Pokemon is poisoned, Fly to Fuschia City.
    -Deposit all of your Pokemon except the one that got poisoned.
    -Enter the Safari Zone.
    -Exit the Safari Zone. When asked, "Leaving early?" reply "NO."
    -Save your game and reset.
    -Exit the Safari Zone again. You will be asked to enter the Safari Zone for $500. Reply "NO."
    -Walk for 499 steps. On your 500th step jump off of a ledge. You will be teleported to the Safari Zone lobby. You now have the ability to walk through walls.

    The glitch will no longer work if you...
    -Battle a trainer.
    -Fly or Teleport to any location.
    -Go inside a building.
    -Go outside too far and have the game crash (these crashes will not damage your game).
    -Save your game and turn it off.

    The glitch is unaffected by...
    -Capturing or battling wild Pokemon.
    -Talking to NPCs, including the old man for the Missingno. Glitch.
    -Using the PC.

    The Mew Glitch
    Forcing this glitch allows the player to obtain a Level 7 Mew. It is a variant of another glitch, commonly known as the Ditto Glitch. However, for this glitch to happen, the player must not have battled two trainers from the list below (known as long-distance Trainers) and have a Pokémon who knows Fly in your party.

    Method
    -Approach a long-distance Trainer so that you are one tile out of their line of vision.
    -Take the one step needed to enter their view, but press the start button before they have the chance to engage you in battle.
    -Use Fly and go to another long-distance Trainer.
    -Cross this Trainer's view as far away from them as you can get (crossing their path any closer can cause the game to freeze).
    -After defeating the second long-distance trainer, Fly close to the first Trainer and start walking near them.
    -When the start menu comes up, press B. Once the menu closes, you will engage in a battle against a Level 7 Mew.

    Long-Distance Trainers (open)

    Route 8:
    -Gambler closest to the entry of the underground tunnel.
    Route 9:
    -Male Jr. Trainer saying, "I'm taking the ROCK TUNNEL to go to LAVENDER..."
    Route 11:
    -Youngster located in the upper-right corner of the route.
    -Youngster farthest south.
    Route 12:
    -Second Fisherman you meet as you walk south of Lavender Town.
    Route 17:
    -Second farthest north Biker.
    Route 19:
    -Swimmer looking upwards from a cluster of four trainers.
    -Beauty looking right from a cluster of four trainers.
    -Swimmer saying, "I tried diving for POKEMON, but it was a no go!"
    -Swimmer saying, "What's beyond the horizon?"
    Route 20:
    -Swimmer in upper-right hand corner of the route.
    -Beauty saying, "My boyfriend gave me big pearls!"
    -Beauty saying, "CINNABAR, in the west, has a LAB for POKEMON."
    Route 21:
    -Swimmer south of bridge with 2 Fishermen. (1)
    -Swimmer south of bridge with 2 Fishermen. (2)
    Route 24:
    -Male Jr. Trainer left of the Nugget Bridge.
    Fourth Floor of Silph Co.:
    -Rocket that is on the right side of the table.
    -Rocket that is the farthest left and down on the floor.
    Eighth Floor of Silph Co.:
    -Rocket that is farthest south of all.
    -Rocket that is located in the lower right-hand corner of the floor.
    Ninth Floor of Silph Co.:
    -Rocket located farthest south. (In the middle corridor)
    Brock's Gym (Unusable):
    -Only trainer in Brock's Gym.
    Viridian Forest (Yellow ONLY)
    -Next to last Bug Catcher. (Must use Escape Rope to leave)

    Ditto Glitch
    This variation of the Ditto Glitch can be used to receive an unlimited number of any species of Pokémon. In order for this glitch to have maximum effectiveness, the player must have a basic understanding of the hexidecimal and decimal systems used to identify Pokémon. This glitch will cause temporary loss of the start menu, but it will be restored after resetting the game.

    Procedure:
    -Train a Pokémon so that its Special stat is the same as the decimal number of the Pokémon you want to receive, and keep it in your party for the remainder of the glitch.
    -Approach a long-distance Trainer, walk into their view, and Fly away before they are able to battle you.
    -Fly to any PokéCenter and save your game by switching boxes in Bill's PC (since the start menu is now gone).
    -Reset the game, beat the Elite Four, then defeat the Champion.
    -After defeating him, get in a battle with a wild Ditto and let it transform into the Pokémon with the calibrated Special stat.
    -Run from the transformed Ditto and Fly back to the long-distance Trainer.
    -Press B to exit the start menu when it appears. Once you press B you will be engaged in a battle with a Pokémon whose decimal identifier is the same as the calibrate Special stat.

    Other, non-infinite versions of this glitch can be found on other sites, including Glitch City Laboratories.

    Old Man (Missingno.) Glitch
    This glitch can be used to obtain multiple glitch Pokémon, including Missingno. and Pokémon over Level 100. Missingno. can then be used to obtain 128 copies of the sixth item in your Bag at a time. However, it also results in some cosmetic or data changes to the game, some of which have the potential to make the entire game cartridge useless. These changes occur in the Hall of Fame portion of the PC; instead of your Pokémon's sprites showing up, glitched graphics will be displayed.

    Prerequisites:
    -Game data that has progressed at least up to Cinnabar Island
    -A Pokémon that knows the move Fly
    -A Pokémon that knows the move Surf

    Method
    -Go to Viridian City and talk to the old man who shows you how to catch Pokémon.
    -Immediately after he completes his demonstration, Fly to Cinnabar Island.
    -Go east until you reach the shore.
    -Surf up and down the coast, staying as close to the shore as possible.

    Surfing in this location will cause many non-oceanic Pokémon—including those over Level 100—and glitch Pokémon like Missingno. or 'M to appear. Encountering either of these glitch Pokémon will give you 128 more copies of whatever your sixth item is. The other Pokémon you encounter are generated based on the third, fifth, and seventh letters of your character's name. Below is a list of which letters generate which Pokémon:

    Evolving Pokemon without Evolutionary Stones
    Prerequisites:
    -A Pokémon that evolves by Evolution Stone, such as Clefairy, Staryu, or Pikachu, as the first Pokemon in your party.
    -One of the following Pokemon, each one of which corresponds to an evolution stone, in your party.
    --Exeggutor - Moon Stone
    --HEX 20 Missingno. - Fire Stone
    --Psyduck - Leaf Stone
    --Growlithe - Thunderstone
    --Onix - Water Stone

    Method:
    -Get into a battle with a trainer or wild Pokémon (the former is the superior choice in most cases).
    -Have the first Pokémon in your party—the one you're trying to evolve—gain a level.
    -Switch out the Pokémon you're trying to evolve and put the Pokémon that corresponds to the necessary Evolution Stone.
    -Have that Pokémon finish the trainer battle

    Catching Safari Zone Pokémon
    This glitch can be used to make encountering and catching hard-to-find Safari Zone Pokémon, like Chansey and Kangaskhan, easier. It can also be used to encounter any Pokemon from any Route simply by changing your location from the Safari Zone to the desired location. However, this glitch cannot be performed on the Yellow version.

    Prerequisites:
    -Access to Fuscia City and Cinnibar Island
    -A Pokémon with Fly
    -A Pokémon with Surf

    Method:
    -Enter the Safari Zone.
    -Either Retire or run around and use up all your time.
    -Upon exiting, Fly to Cinnibar Island.
    -Go to the coast that is next to the gym facing the Seafoam Islands.
    -Surf up and down. You will run into Pokémon normally obtainable only in the Safari Zone and will be able to weaken and catch them without them running away.

    Level 1 to 100 Glitch
    Using this glitch will allow you to increase the level of a given Surprise Pokémon (one encountered using the Ditto or Mew Glitches) from Level 1 to Level 100 by manipulating how the game handles leveling up. Note that this can only be performed on three-stage Pokémon (ex. Bulbasaur line, Charmander line, ect.) and Mew.

    Method:
    -Stand close enough to a long-ranged Trainer so that if you take one step towards them, they will challenge you.
    -Hit start before the Trainer can walk up to you.
    -Use Fly, Dig, Teleport, or an Escape Rope to transfer you to a Pokémon Center.
    -Have a Pokémon that knows Growl.
    -Growl at the desired Pokémon six times. This will make the Surprise Pokemon Level 1 (make sure this trainer has a vision of at least two tiles, so the Trainer can walk up to you; if that the Trainer does not walk, your game will freeze).
    -Defeat the trainer and make sure the last Pokemon you defeated had the desired Special stat.
    -Return to the long-ranged Trainer.
    -The start menu will pop up. Press B and exit it.
    -Catch the Level 1 Surprise Pokémon.
    -Make sure the Level 1 Pokémon is in the front of your party and that you have five other Pokémon.
    -Encounter a Pokémon that is Level 9 or lower.
    -Switch five times to different Pokémon. (This will make sure that you get less than 54 experience points.)

    If done correctly, the Surprise Pokémon will grow from Level 1 to 100, which is exceedingly helpful for those who don't want to use the Missingo. Glitch and don't have a Game Shark. It also makes it easier to Stat Exp. train your Pokémon using the Box Trick.

    Link Cable Glitch
    Using this glitch will also allow one player to encounter Surprise Pokémon. For simplicity's sake, the two players involved in performing the glitch will be called A and B. It should also be noted that Player B must have a Pokémon that knows Dig in their party; Teleport and Escape Ropes are not usable substitutes.

    Method:
    -A trains a Pokémon until its Special is the number needed to generate the desired Pokémon.
    -A deposits all of his Pokémon to the PC until he / she is left only with the Pokémon that has calibrated Special stat.
    -B triggers a long-ranged Trainer event and beats another Trainer. If the latter is not possible, follow these steps:
    3a. Go to the PC.
    3b. Change the Pokémon Box.
    3c. Reset.
    3d. Reload and beat the Pokémon League.
    -B enters the Safari Zone.
    -B exits the Safari Zone, but when asked, "Leaving early?", replies "No."
    -Once B is back in the Safari Zone, B saves his / her game without moving.
    -B resets and loads his / her game.
    -B exits the Safari Zone (this time, B won't be asked, "Leaving early?").
    -A and B link up and battle at the Colosseum.
    -B defeats A.
    -After the battle, B starts walking around inside the Colosseum. A resets and loads his / her game (after B takes 500 steps, the PA will ring; B will be transported back to the Safari House).
    -B enters the Safari Zone again (once inside, B does not go into any fields).
    -B uses Dig to return to the last Pokémon Center visited.
    -B walks back to the long-ranged Trainer that he's triggered.
    -B's start menu will pop up.
    -B will close the Start menu and a Surprise Pokémon will appear. It will be the desired Pokémon.
    -B catches it.
    -B goes to the nearest PC and changes the Pokémon Box.
    -B loads his / her game. B's Save option will be back on the Start menu and the Reset option will be gone.

    If a Pokémon's Special goes over 255, the list repeats itself. A Pokémon with a Special of 256 will generate the same thing as a Pokémon with a Special of 0.


    Yellow-Only Tips and Tricks

    Easier Rival
    To make your rival's team weaker when he is the champion, simply lose the rival battles in Oak's Lab and either lose or skip the battle on Route 22. Losing will cause his Eevee to evolve into a Vaporeon, the single Eeveelution weak to Pikachu's Electric-type attacks.

    Side Note: Winning one of the two battles will cause his Eevee to evolve into a Flareon, and winning both will cause it to evolve into a Jolteon.

    I've added a warning about the Old Man Glitch and added a version of the Ditto Glitch. There's also a cloning glitch listed as well as a warning against cloning using boxes. Once get through the other link you've given me, Orly, I'll probably go ahead and add them, too.

    I have a couple notes about the Mew and Ditto glitches.

    -You only need to have one "long-ranged" trainer to use the Ditto glitch effectively.

    -You can lower the "Surprise Pokemon's" level by using Growl.

    -You can raise the "Surprise Pokemon's" level by using the Ditto Glitch. Simply let Ditto transform into a Pokemon that knows Meditate or Swords Dance.

    -The "Surprise Pokemon's" level range is from levels 1-13.

    Also, there are more than 2 "long-ranged" trainers. I will list all of them.

    Route 8:
    -Gambler closest to the entry of the underground tunnel.

    Route 9:
    -Male Jr. Trainer saying, "I'm taking the ROCK TUNNEL to go to LAVENDER..."

    Route 11:
    -Youngster located in the upper, right corner of the route.
    -Youngster farthest south.

    Route 12:
    -Second Fisherman you meet as you walk south of Lavender Town.

    Route 17:
    -Second farthest north Biker.

    Route 19:
    -Swimmer looking upwards from a cluster of four trainers.
    -Beauty looking right from a cluster of four trainers.
    -Swimmer saying, "I tried diving for POKEMON, but it was a no go!"
    -Swimmer saying, "What's beyond the horizon?

    Route 20:
    -Swimmer in upper-right hand corner of the route.
    -Beauty saying, "My boyfriend gave me big pearls!"
    -Beauty saying, "CINNABAR, in the west, has a LAB for POKEMON."

    Route 21:
    -Swimmer south of bridge with 2 Fishermen. (1)
    -Swimmer south of bridge with 2 Fishermen. (2)

    Route 24:
    -Male Jr. Trainer left of the Nugget Bridge.

    Fourth Floor of Silph Co.:
    -Rocket that is on the right side of the table.
    -Rocket that is the farthest left and down on the floor.

    Eighth Floor of Silph Co.:
    -Rocket that is farthest south of all.
    -Rocket that is located in the lower right-hand corner of the floor.

    Ninth Floor of Silph Co.:
    -Rocket located farthest south. (In the middle corridor)

    Brock's Gym (Unusable):
    -Only trainer in Brock's Gym.

    Viridian Forest (Yellow Exclusive):
    -Second last trainer in Viridian Forest. (Must use an Escape Rope.)

    There is also a trick to catch Safari Zone Pokemon (CHANSEY!!) easier:

    Requirements:
    -Access to Fuscia City and Cinnibar Island
    -A Pokemon with Fly
    -A Pokemon with Surf

    How it works:
    -Enter the Safari Zone
    -Either Retire or run around and use up all your time
    -Upon exiting fly to Cinnibar Island
    -Go to the coast that is next to the gym facing the Seafoam Islands
    -Surf up and down, you will run into Pokemon Obtainable in the Safari Zone and you can weaken them and catch them without them running away

    --Doesn't work in Yellow Version--

    Also, Statue Fishing (this is kinda irrelevant and useless):

    Requirements:
    -A rod
    -Access to any gym

    How it works:
    -Enter a Gym
    -Go up to a statue near the entrance
    -Pull out your fishing rod and start fishing

    (I'm not sure if you can actuallly catch anything from these, its been a while since I've even opened up my RBY versions but its just something cool I guess).

    It's not possible to actually catch anything from the statue, it's just a neat trick.

    Also, you can easily get Chansey by using the Mew Glitch before you even have 2 Gym badges. Simply perform the Mew Glitch and fight the Bug Catcher with the Butterfree in the Route north of Vermillion.


    No problem glad to help.

    Sorry for the double post, but I thought this deserved its own post.

    Getting a Level 1 to 100 Glitch:

    1. Stand close enough to a "long-ranged" trainer so that if you take one step towards them, they will challenge you.

    2. Hit "Start" before the trainer can walk up to you.

    3. Use Fly, Dig, Teleport, or an Escape Rope to transfer you to a Pokemon Center.

    4. Have a Pokemon that knows Growl to Growl at the desired Pokemon 6 times. This will make the "Surprise Pokemon" level 1. (Make sure this trainer has a vision of at least two tiles, so the trainer can walk up to you. If the trainer does not walk, your game will freeze.)

    5. Defeat the trainer and make sure the last Pokemon you defeated had the desired Special stat.

    6. Return to the "long-ranged" trainer.

    7. The Start menu will pop up. Press "B."

    8. Catch the level 1 "Surprise Pokemon."

    9. Make sure the level 1 is in the front of your party and that you have 5 other Pokemon.

    10. Encounter a Pokemon that is level 9 or lower.

    11. Switch five times to different Pokemon. (This will make sure you get less than 54 experience points.)

    If done correctly, the "Surprise Pokemon" will grow from level 1 to 100 which is exceedingly helpful for those who don't want to use the Missingno. Glitch and don't have a Game Shark. It also makes it easier to Stat Exp train your Pokemon using the Box Trick.

    Xia, I would also like to mention there is one exclusive "long-ranged" trainer in Yellow version. He is the second last trainer in the Viridian Forest. You have to use an Escape Rope because you cannot use Fly, Teleport, or Dig in the Viridian Forest. This trainer is only on Pokemon Yellow.

    A note for the level 1 to 100 glitch is that it only works for 3 stage evolution Pokemon and Mew.

    Also, the Ditto/Mew/long range trainer glitch can be used on Yellow to encounter Missingno., but on Yellow, the game tends to freeze a lot when you encounter it. But if it doesn't, the sound will turn off (I don't remember for how long), you will have multiples of you on the screen after the battle (goes away after flying), and like in in RB, your 6th slot item will have 128 slots added to it.

    Not true. I have used the level 1-100 glitch in Yellow Version to get a level 1 Ivysaur, which I evolved into a Venusaur before beating Brock.

    That's because the Bulbasaur family is a 3 stage evolution. Bulbasaur -> Ivysaur -> Venusaur, etc.

    Before I explain the procedure, there is one thing to know. The 2 players in this glitch will be called "A" and "B."

    Note: "B" will need a Pokemon with Dig before attempting this glitch. An Escape Rope or Teleport is not a substitute for Dig.

    Link Cable Glitch:

    1.
    "A" grows a Pokemon until its Special is the number needed to generate the desired Pokemon.

    2. "A" deposits all of his Pokemon to the PC until he/she's left only with the Pokemon that has desired Special.

    3. "B" triggers a "long-ranged" trainer event and beats another trainer. If the latter is not possible, follow these steps:
    3a. Go to the PC.
    3b. Change the Pokemon Box.
    3c. Reset.
    3d. Reload and beat Pokemon League.

    4. "B" enters the Safari Zone.

    5. "B" exits the Safari Zone, but when asked, "Leaving early?", replies "NO."

    6. Once "B" is back in the Safari Zone, "B" saves his/her game without moving.

    7. "B" resets and loads his/her game.

    8. "B" exits the Safari Zone. (This time, "B" won't be asked, "Leaving early?")

    9. "A" and "B" link up and battle at the Colosseum.

    10. "B" defeats "A."

    11. After the battle, "B" starts walking around inside the Colosseum. "A" resets and loads his/her game. (After "B" takes 500 steps, the PA will ring. "B" will be transported back to the Safari House.)

    12. "B" enters the Safari Zone again. (Once inside, "B" does not go into any fields.)

    13. "B" uses Dig to return to the last Pokemon Center visited.

    14. "B" walks back to the "long-ranged" trainer that he's triggered.

    15. "B's" Start menu will pop up.

    16. "B" will close the Start menu and a wild Pokemon will appear. It will be the desired Pokemon.

    17. "B" catches it.

    18. "B" goes to the nearest PC and changes the Pokemon Box.

    19. "B" loads his/her game. "B's" "Save" option will be back on the Start menu and the "Reset" option will be gone.

    --------------------------------------------------------
    Optional Steps:

    20.
    "A" and "B" link up again. This time, they enter the Trade Center.

    21. "B" trades "A" the desired Pokemon, so they will both have it on their Pokedex.

    Went ahead and added everything except for the Statue one, since it doesn't really have any competitive merit. Thanks for the help, everyone. =]

    No problem. I could also do a list of every trainer in the game and what Pokemon they generate. That would take forever though. D:

    Yeah, probably not worth wasting time (people could always cross-reference this guide with Pokearth or something).

    Anyway, I'm working on digging up non-glitch tips to add, so if anyone knows any not listed in the OP, please let me know. =]

    I have yet another glitch. It's the WtW Glitch! To do this glitch you will need a Pokemon that knows Fly and Potions to make sure you poisoned Pokemon doesn't die.

    Walk Through Walls:

    1. Get on of your Pokemon poisoned.

    2. Once one Pokemon is poisoned, Fly to Fuschia City.

    3. Deposit all of your Pokemon except the one that got poisoned.

    4. Enter the Safari Zone.

    5.
    Exit the Safari Zone. When asked, "Leaving early?" reply "NO."

    6. Save your game and reset.

    7. Exit the Safari Zone again. You will be asked to enter the Safari Zone for $500. Reply "NO."

    8. Walk for 499 steps. On your 500th step jump off of a ledge. You will be teleported to the Safari Zone lobby. You now have the ability to walk through walls.

    The glitch will no longer work if:
    -You battle a trainer.
    -Fly or Teleport to any location.
    -Go inside a building.
    -Go outside too far and have the game crash (these crashes will not damage your game).
    -Save your game and turn it off.

    The glitch is unaffected by:
    -Capturing or battling wild Pokemon.
    -Talking to NPCs, including the old man for the Missingno. Glitch.
    -Using the PC.

    Another one. Sorry for the double post. I thought this deserved its own post.

    Evolving Pokemon without an Evolution Stone

    Requirements for this glitch:


    1.
    A Pokémon that evolves by evolution stone, such as Clefairy, Staryu, or Pikachu, as the first Pokemon in your party.

    2.
    One of the following Pokemon, each one of which corresponds to an evolution stone, in your party.
    2a. Exeggutor - Moon Stone
    2b. HEX 20 Missingno - Fire Stone
    2c. Psyduck - Leaf Stone
    2d. Growlithe - Thunderstone
    2e. Onix - Water Stone

    Directions:

    1.
    The player has to get into a trainer battle.

    2.
    Have the first Pokémon in the player's party, the one he or she is trying to evolve, gain a level.

    3.
    Switch out the Pokémon that the player is trying to evolve and put the Pokémon that corresponds to the necessary evolution stone.

    4. Have that Pokémon finish the trainer battle.

    While I'm all up for the Evolutionary Stones one and personally feel that adding the walk through walls glitch would be beneficial (if only because it aids movement), I'm left asking how walking through walls pertains to competitive Pokémon. Can anyone help me with this decision?

    Wait, I'm confused. This is the list of Pokemon you'll encounter when using the Missingno. glitch with those letters in the player's name or what? Sorry, but I don't follow what you're saying. @.@

    The Pokemon you find with the Missingno. glitch are determined by the letter in the 3rd, 5th, and 7th slot. The list gives the letter and the Pokemon you get out of it. For example, if my in-game name was SuPermE, I would find Weezing (P), Squirtle (r), and Snorlax (E).

    The old man glitch and the one under it both have "—" littered through them; I'm pretty sure this is a typo

    Also for the evolution without stone glitch, you don't need to fight a trainer; while it's far easier, I admit, you can also fight a wild pokemon; as long as it levels up you're good

    Also rather hilariously glitch city says you can evolve pikachu to raichu in yellow xD
    It won't follow you though (add to yellow tips and tricks)

    You still ahve to go through most of the game until cinnabar, unfortunately :(

    Actually though I'm really curious; does this apply to other items like potions?
    I.E.
    When you switch in Ursaring Missingno (dec 62; hex 3e), is a lemonade used on the switched out pokemon?

    You can get Mewtwo at any given point, preferably after you get the Master Ball.
