How to get rid of Bad Eggs hint for Pokemon Emerald

How to get rid of Bad Eggs

Bad Eggs are annoying; you can't hatch them or trade them. Here is an easy way to get rid of them.

First of all: you need a gameshark. This won't work for AR.
Put in these cheats:

Easy win (singles)
Warp to Battle Fronteir (hold Left when exiting/entering an area)
(This is the Steal Pokemon from the Battle Factory cheat set)
Then go to the Battle Factory.
Have the Bad Egg(s) in your party, along with one crappy pokemon.
Enter the Battle Factory challenge
Battle the first six people, keeping the Pokemon you like. They will be yours soon.

At the END of the 7th match, at the split second before you go through the door (timing is crucial) press and hold L. You should be in the entrance hall to the Battle Fronteir.

SAVE THE GAME. Return to the Battle Factory, and the guy will tell you that you won and give you battle points.

Then he will say that he switched the Pokemon, but since you saved the game before returning, you should still have the three Pokemon from the Battle Factory, and not the Bad Egg(s)!!!

They will be gone forever. This way you not only get rid of the Bad Eggs, which never hatch, But you will also have 3 free Pokemon from the Battle Factory.

I tested this, and it should work for you too.
Please verify if it does!!!

Just tried the stealing pokemon from the battle frontier trick and managed to steal the pokemon simply by having the warp code on as soon as I beat the first person. I no longer have a bad egg and have the 3 pokemon I want.

Another way to get rid of the Bad EGG is by putting it in your PC Box. It won't harm your game if it's in your PC, but it will harm your game if it's in your Party, and hatches. I just put it in my PC Box, and nothing is happening.
