Oh the game is more broken than you think! My 2 videos above are just scratching the surface of what WS M and 8F item can do. And those are just 2 items in the game.What bugs have you found? So far the only ones I've come across are the ones I've made intentionally (Mew, item cloning glitch). There's definitely a lot of older annoying things, but those are mostly features/lack of features.
WS M is a Key Item. You can't toss it sorry. I believe it's completely side effect less. You can store the item in your Item Box.I'm going to try it out right now. A question about WS M: Am I able to toss it after I'm done, and will it leave any traces (except for the cloning and maxing out stats I'll be doing with it)?
EDIT: And what if I save and turn off my system? Will I still have WS M when I turn it back on?
Yes, you can reset after you get WS M. I didn't actually do all that in one go. I did reset a few times during the setup.
Couldn't have said it any better.Why should they have added newer features? The new games weren't what they were celebrating - they were celebrating the games that started it all. Global communications are the only thing that I would have asked for, but even then, the games are still perfectly fine without it.
As far as the game itself goes, the glitches have about as much of an impact on the game as declaring your run a nuzlocke does; you can either choose to play with them, or without them. For the most part, you have to actively search for glitches and bugs yourself; about the only substantial bug that is inherent to the gameplay is the toxic counter, and hyper beam, if you actually want to count that one. Other than that, the utter simplicity of the game, flawed or annoying as it may be at times, is a part of its charm.
As a point of fact, it could be argued that the glitches are one of the defining features of these games, because despite the fact that they were not intentional, people are still finding new things and learning new ways to play the same game two decades later. It's not every game that can brag about that. Saying the glitches kill interest is kind of silly, given the fact that they are fully ignorable, and 99% out of the way.
