Master clone glitch

Hey, I'm having an issue. I have done the clone technique hundreds of times before and never had a problem. Today I gave my Eevee my masterball and cloned it. I didnt see a problem(it showed that I had two), so I tried to clone again. It didnt work, and I went to check the box. I clicked and the screen went white. When I press A on the white screen a few times, a bunch of "???"s come up, and if I press again, a message box with random letters appear. Is there any way to reverse this glitch, without restarting? I have been playing for a week and don't want to do it all again.

You can't clone into the same box; I tried. You can clone eevee/Master ball into the next box; but not into the same box.

Whatever you do, DON'T PULL OUT ANY Pokemon WITH ALL ??????????'s. It could seriously delete your game, change your gender, and a number of other things I have read. If you release them, and do it again you will be fine. The only thing I know to tell you about this is that when you went to clone you were a split second too fast. There are three things that happen when you try to clone. You go too fast and get ? Mark Pokemon that need released... Also called glitch Pokemon... Second you do it perfectly and you have the Pokemon in party, and in the box. The third one is ... You don't have the Pokemon in your party, but they are in the box (unsuccesful clone) due to being too slow. There is only a tiny window of opportunity on Pokemon crystal to clone... It has to be very precise... Patience and repetition are key here.
