Question for Pokemon Sapphire

I used a Action Replay code to get pikachu that I just got today and all I got was something called a bad egg.

What does this mean? what will it be? I'm very confused.

I have like 20 bad eggs and I'm planning to trade them into my Ruby version.

There eggs that never hatch. They're a waste of my room boxes and you can't release them. Once I encountered wild bad egg appeared. People who don't believe in Pokemon glitches are not right. It depends how you get the bad eggs. Because I got a bad egg by using shiny hack codes and it actually hatched by using fast egg hatch codes.

But I used fast egg hatch codes on the other bad eggs and they did not hatch. Some bad eggs can mess up your game but don't panic just don't save.

I cannot tell you how many strange things have happened with my bad eggs. Now you probably won't believe this but my pokemon all turned into question marks before but I decided not to save. Anyways bad eggs are a mixed up version of Bulbasaur and Treeko. If you hatch a bad egg a question mark will pop out and it is number 000 in the Pokedex.

I have a great idea!!!!

I think I know what the problem is!! It's either:

A. Bad eggs are the shiny form of the original egg. I think since egg-hatched Pokemon you have made by breeding Pokemon have preset average IVs and stats, if the first Pokemon you get out of an egg by the breeding of your own Pokemon is not shiny, then you will never find a shiny out of an egg (unless you recieve one through a special event, or if you restart your game a try to find if breeding will give you a shiny.) When Action Replay is designated to encounter shiny Pokemon as well as eggs, then you have a glitch on your hands-- since the game has already set the average on the egg's stats, your pushing the game to rearrange the averages, and that can screw-up your game.


B. Bad eggs contain glitched Pokemon, like Missingno.


C. Bad eggs contain Pokemon that are created through the mixture of the two Pokemon used in the breeding.


D. Do any of you know about PokeRus*? It was a virus your Pokemon could catch from wild Pokemon during wild battles-- this feature was only available in G/S/C. You had a 1 in 8156 chance to find these viral Pokemon, the same size in chance to find a shiny Pokemon. I have Pokemon with PokeRus-- but know that PokeRus was good. I wonder if that is what makes a Bad Egg, PokeRus...
* PokeRus is short for "Pokemon Virus".


E. A Bad Egg contains Legendary Pokemon. Legendaries don't breed, hence.


F. It is the form of Missingno-- in the indentity of and egg?!

Try these. It should help!
