Species determined by name cheat for Pokemon Red

Species determined by name

If you do the Missingno cheat, and then continue surfing, you will run into over level 100 Pokémon. The Pokémon depends of your name in the game.

The 2nd, 4th and 6th letter determines the level and 3rd, 5th and 7th letter determines the Pokémon. 1st letter does nothing. Example: If your name is "ABCDEFG", there comes L129 Golbat, L131 Snorlax and L133 Missingno. Note: If in your name is not 7 letters, the last letters are "empty".

Beware! The trainers may screw up your game! If you catch Missingno, your graphics may screw up! If you only SEE Missingno, your Hall Of Fame in PokéCenter Screws up. You have there level 198 Kakuna, level 999 Rattata etc.

The Pokémon that you catch with the Missingno cheat screws not up your game, but Missingno may do it if you catch it!

If an over level 100 Pokémon wins a battle, it will come back to level 100. You know that you can't give a rare candy to level 100 Pokémon, but you can do this with an OVER level 100 Pokémon.

If you give a rare candy to level 255 Pokémon, it will come to level 0!!! All these codes works in both Red and Blue version.

How the hell do you put in the cheat code ?

In my experience, I encountered something quite different. I would use the name "Axel", which should produce a level 164 Rapidash, but I got one that was level 183.
