A friendly reminder: Before asking how to get Q and Charizard 'M, READ THE GLITCHDEX. Or just read these pages: Q, Charizard 'M, Ditto Trick
What if you could give nearly any attack to any Pok�mon without cheating devices? What if you could make one Pok�mon have the stats and type of another? What if you could essentially combine two Pok�mon into one, with the species of one Pok�mon and the characteristics of another? The Q Glitch - the newest big discovery in the field of RBY Pok�mon glitches - allows you to do all that and more.
To perform the Q Glitch, you first need to have a certain Glitch Pok�mon - Q on Yellow Version, Magikarp and a Rhyhorn. Their stats can be seen below:
Let's say you wanted to give the move Horn Attack to a Magikarp. First, you would select an empty box on the PC, and deposit a Pok�mon in the box. (Any Pok�mon will do; I'll use Rattata for this example.) Next, deposit your Q or Charizard 'M in the box. After that deposit the Pok�mon that you want to gain the new moves, in this case Magikarp. Finally, deposit the Pok�mon with the moves you want the other Pok�mon to have, in this case Rhyhorn. After depositing these Pok�mon, the contents of your box would be this:
However, because a Q or Charizard 'M causes all Pok�mon below it to become invisible, the box would look like this:
Keep in mind that the CANCEL button is really your Q/Charizard 'M, and the three blank spaces are Magikarp, Rhyhorn, and the CANCEL button, respectively. Now, withdraw the Rattata (or any other Pok�mon above Q/Charizard 'M.) You have just combined the two Pok�mon. The contents of the box should now be this:
Q/Charizard 'M (Q/Charizard 'M)
Q/Charizard 'M (Magikarp)
The names in parentheses show which Pok�mon each of these really is. Your Rhyhorn has now become a Magikarp, and your Magikarp has now become a Q or Charizard 'M. However, these Pok�mon have retained their own stats. Their stats should look like this:
What's this? You have a Magikarp with the stats and name of a Rhyhorn! What kind of a freakish hybrid is this? Actually, this is what glitchologists call an unstable hybrid. It is unstable because it its identification data has been mixed up, and it is no longer a normal Pok�mon. Hybrid Glitches could also be considered unstable hybrids because they have some of the data of another Pok�mon. This unstable hybrid wasn't exactly what you were wanting, right? You wanted a normal Magikarp with Horn Attack, right? Well, there is one way to stabilize these hybrids - evolution. When this Magikarp becomes a Gyarados, its stats will become those of a normal Gyarados, but it will retain its altered moves. This Gyarados is now a perfectly stable, normal Pok�mon. Stabilizing hybrids by evolving them is improtant if you want to trade them to Gold/Silver/Crystal Version because unstable hybrids will be blocked by GSC's error trap just as if you had tried to trade a Glitch Pok�mon.
If you want to do this glitch for yourself, just replace the Magikarp and Rhyhorn in this demonstration with any other two Pok�mon. The possibilities with this glitch are virtually endless, so just play around with this glitch and get a feel for how it works.
