Hello Little Cup players. I do not partake much into the metagame myself, but recently a very controversial subject was brought up over at Wi-Fi and I would like to see some discussion over this topic on behalf of Little Cup players.
Where do people stand with the allowence of the Pomeg Berry Glitch? For those unawares of this here is a short from bulbapedia: When you use a Pomeg Berry in Generation III with a Pokemon with 1 Health you have an extreme amount of health after you use it. Since the Pomeg Berry lowers HP by 10 or more EV points, the HP stat of the Pokémon becomes for example -1, which the game interprets as 65,535 because the byte managing HP is unsigned (displayed as "?35"). Once you give it a Potion or anything, it will have an HP of 0 yet not be fainted due to the way the game delivers that status of Fainted only in battle and does not check for it until then.
If the player has only an egg in his or her party with the Pokémon affected, the egg (or rather, the Pokémon that would be inside) can be forced into battle by following the same steps, but putting the egg at the head of the party. The egg will have the same stats it would have upon hatching, as well as all of the moves. This allows it to battle as if it were a normal Pokémon.
The following is the most important part of the glitch concerning Little Cup: An egg that battles can gain experience in this way, and with patience, level up, learn moves, and even evolve before hatching.
Now, from what I understand the use of this accepted. However where would we draw the line? The Mimic Glitch is banned, but yet the Pomeg Berry Glitch is not? I think we should we should come up with clear boundaries on what is allowed and what is not. Please voice your opinions on your reasoning on why something should be allowed or not.
Lastly, please keep this discussion as friendly and productive as possible as this is a serious issue.
