Not true. Growlithe acts as a thunderstone if you have one in your party and use him right after pikachu (when pikachu is about to level up). Its not a hack. The game coding for a thunderstone and a growlithe are so similar that the game registers him as a thunderstone in the correct situation. Same for psyduck and a leaf stone, onix and a water stone, and exeggutor and a moon stone.

You must have a Growlithe in your party.. He acts as a thunderstone for some unknown reason. Happened to me too.
