My egg turns to bad egg

You can't get rid or bad egs. I suggest you stop using cheats because you might lose more. Or you could change your party to weak pokemons and use the cheat so you don't lose good pokemons.

you can get rid of bad egg by moving it in pc and then releasing it
Amy May said: 8th Jul 2018 | REPORT
You really have no clue at all when it come to what you're talking about....

The majority of my game testing involves me intentionally making a Bad EGG as a tool for trouble shooting the direct cause to certain game bugs. I've dealt with getting rid of so many Bad EGGs in my time to know you're absolutely wrong.

I was able to release mine
Amy May said: 8th Jul 2018 | REPORT
..... "Release" them?!? Impossible.

And if you're talking about that PC cheat for making Bad EGGs invisible first to do it, then you're insane and don't care about the consequences of your game.

Emerald, in particular... is filled with so many little booby traps as a measure to game cheating, it would make your head spin if you don't already know where they are!

Greater chance that it would make your game glitch.

Guest answered:

Do you have all the gym badges? If not, stop leveling up your Pokemon to level 100, it will only make it worse because the data wont match. Trust me, I did it once.

Guest answered:

You should try putting the bad egg into a pc and try to do it everytime you load your game.Check on your pokemons frequently too so none of them gets infected by the bad egg. Yeah, that can happen if you don't watch out. I lost a lv 78 Exploud... Anyway, put the Bad Egg in the PC and there, you can be semi-safe about for the curent game session. Remember, each time you load your game, check if you have a bad egg, if you do, put it in a pc and play on. This is how I did it,so there are many other solutions, but I find this way good because I'm lazy :P

Guest answered:

Quarantine your boxes IMMIDEATLY. Any Pokemon near a bad EGG will turn into one. Move all of the bad eggs in one box and move all Pokemon away.

Actually, you aren't far off when it comes to safety measures for Bad EGGs in PC. The safest best, PC box wise, is BOX3 & BOX6 though (usually with box 3 as the primary).

The reason for this is do to the flagging variables of those particular PC boxes and the similarities between them (unlike the others). I know it might be confusing to understand but this is a "game tech" thing, so take my word on it.

If you're in such a sticky situation... Bad EGGs go to either BOX3 or BOX6 only, with no mons mingling in those boxes either.
Guest answered:

Just don't put Pokemon on box 1 but still the bad egg will exist when youre keep using cheats. If your box 1 is empty invisible bad egg will show up, in that case invisible bad egg can easily get rid by releasing it (invisible bad egg only). Always check you're box 1 by pressing move pokemons make sure that you will check every tiles in box 1 if you had invisible bad just release it...

You need to be extremely careful releasing "invisible Bad EGGs" in Emerald. That's one of those strange little things in that game that can be booby trapped, with consequences "glutch/bug" wise in the future for it.

The only thing I could add to this though:
- Better safe than sorry. If you were to release an invisible Bad EGG (that weren't cause by PC cheat), best to do it while *both* Emerald Master Code (M) and Anti-DMA are enabled, during the PC process... as a game safety measure.

The only way you can get rid of invisible Bad EGGs with No Negative Side Effect though, is by using the Box 1 Slot 1 cheat method. Do to the fact the you're "tricking" the PC during that cheat process (when done correctly), it makes so it treats it like it was never there and there was never a problem in the first place.
Guest answered:

You need to disable all cheats then deposit them.But always keep the 6th Pokeball slot open just in case

I will go for Utube and try, bad egg taken from daycare, turn my vulpix & tropious LV34 into it,now i just seperated them in another clean box
Guest answered:

Whenever you start a save session (Turning on the game) Quarantine your boxes and check for bad eggs. If there are any, separate them from Pokemon. Also, if you have invisible bad eggs, just release them and you're safe. Oh, and have one free slot in your party just in case

Guest answered:

So, all have the problem with bad eggs right? Even I have 1. All you can do is trade PR put it in an empty box in the PC. Hope the problem ends there and make sure to use less cheats... C Mon guys whats the need for game if use cheats.... Soo... Hope it helps

It got so bad it deleted ALL of my progress and I had just beaten fortree gym ugggghhh

PokExtrodinair answered:

Right, as a person whos completed Pokemon emerald several times and een 100% without cheating (took me ages but finally done it)

There is actually a way that works that don't require a gameshark. Its the way I managed to obtain all my legendary trades

Duplication glitch/cloning glitch

The way this glitch works is basically. You can duplicate any Pokemon you would like but sacrifice 1 Pokemon in exchange for the duplicate.

You need to also be able to access the Battle frontier

What to do:

1] go to the battle tower in battle frontier
2] go to the pc and DEPOSIT {not move} the Pokemon you would like to clone into any slot (keep it simple: slot 1, box 1)

3] once the Pokemon has been deposited, back out of the pc and SAVE your game
4] once the game has saved, go back into the pc and WITHDRAW the Pokemon you are cloning
5] back out the pc and go to the woman closest to the pc [I believe it's the woman with 4 pokeballs infront of her on the mat]

6] talk to the lady and select whatever 2 Pokemon you wish to play with
7] IMPORTANT: now. When the lady asks you to SAVE THE GAME, select yes. Now it should say "saving, don't turn off the power". When this message appears... TURN OFF THE DEVICE !!!!!!!

8] when you load back up the game save, you should be infront of your pc again, open up the pc and hey presto. You successfully cloned your Pokemon !!!!

I suggest trying this with despoable Pokemon first and making sure you followed the steps correctly

Now, to get rid of a bad egg with this glitch and I found this only because I lost my level 98 gyarados at the time

What you want to do is:

Once you have withdrawn the Pokemon, MOVE the bad egg into the slot where the clone Pokemon was [slot 1, box 1]

And that's it. Once you clone to Pokemon, it will replace the bad egg with a fresh clone !

This is actually a game fault and NOT a hack. I don't know why it does this but I got a shiny rayquasa and duplicated it over and over so I could trade for certain legends I didn't have (jirachi, celebi etc etc)

This is 100% garunteed way to remove a bad egg besides a modified box slot Pokemon

Hope this helps !!!!!

Hmm.. then in logic, that cloning exploit glitch works simular to the inject method. Never tried it myself (no good for my purposes tbh), but it does make sense.
Guest said: 10th Sep 2018 | REPORT
what if i also use master ball for the cheat ? it is ok and im not gonna have a bad egg ?? plss reply in me i really need a suggestion because if i have a bad egg in my pc in pokemon meta fire x i always restart it . :(
Guest said: 28th Nov 2020 | REPORT
Ayeeee it works. .thanks for the detailed steps ;)
Guest answered:

I think you get bad eggs when you save the game, I think you can avoid it by disabling the cheats before you save that's what I remember but I'm not sure though.

Amy May answered:

Just To Add:

I tested Box 1 Slot 1 exploit for cloning glitch method PokEtrodinair explained above. Glitched a Bad EGG in to my old Emerald cartridge to use it.
- It worked as Safe & Well as if you were using my emu cheat method in an Emerald cartridge instead.
... I personally, would use glitch method over my own in a stock Emerald cartridge. Especially great if you only have one game cartridge & one game system... And no action replay or computer to cheat code with.
... I also tested this method in a clean stock Emerald ROM using MyBoy & JohnGBA EMU (android).
MyBoy- as long your both careful and smart about it.. A little tricky, but works too.
JohnGBA- way too risky for this glitch method. Tested it multiple times.

- Also, seeing all these GBA Bad EGG complaints in general, has left me rather concerned (even answer wise)... So Much So, I'm in the process of slowly posting Bad EGG Removal Tutorials for Fire Red, Leaf Green, & Emerald also... In each appropriate GBA Forum. Hoping, once I find an inject that tests Completely Safe, I'll also make ones for GBA Ruby & Sapphire aswell.

Amy May answered:

Hi I'm Amy, I'm a cheat coder method game tester. Smile

I'll provide a step by step tutorial on how to get rid of that Bad EGG in your poke PC, in Emerald USA ROM base.

Be Careful what cheats you use in casual gameplay.

Don't Ever have too many cheats running at once.

Before Doing Anything: Erase *All* Menu Cheats

If a lot of Bad EGGs: Store in BOX3 or BOX6 Only with no pokes in them either

Do this in a town with a PokeCenter attached to a walking route number.

Please keep in mind, the only Safe and Easy way get rid of Bad EGG's in GBA ROM's is by using cheat codes, of this nature.
Before using such codes, make sure they're compatible with the ROM base you're playing and Not used in any random order. You can Really screw up your game for it!

I also recommend (if able) to create a back up of your current save file (.sav) and put elsewhere, best as a compressed zip file... Just in case.

Take Care Reading Instructions Before & After Inputting Any Codes!

You Will Need:
I recommend copy/paste function to ensure codes are exact.

(Action Replay)

To prevent soft-locking game, you can't release last poke knowing Surf or Fly.
If Pika will be *Only* Surf poke, Keep this in mind.

- This Pikachu is guaranteed safe for game play, with appropriate badge to level.

- If you have a Surf poke... This Pikachu is also completely safe to release once process is finished.

You gave me an Emerald (US) illegal surfing pika!
I'm Sorry if this isn't your cup of tea.
Spent almost a month, searching & testing injects... Just to find this one I use.
I tested for Safeness, every aspect of the word.
I'm 95% positive this started as a legit caught Pikachu male lv.25 Jolly from Emerald Safari Zone, then edited for everything else.


1) Place Bad EGG in Box 1 Slot 1... With rest of Box 1 empty.

2) Exit PokeCenter: Input "M" in cheats menu. Make sure it's enabled.

3) Exit town: Input "Anti-DMA" in cheats menu. Make sure it's enabled.

4) Return to town with Both codes enabled and return to PokeCenter.

5) While inside PokeCenter with 2 previous codes still enabled, stand in front of PC: Input "Pika" in cheats menu. Make sure it's enabled.

6) Access PC with All 3 codes enabled then select "Move Pokemon" from PC menu options.

7) Move Pika in Slot 1 and place it in *Slot 3*.

8) Scroll to Slot 1 with "Invisible Pika" (in slot 1)... Then Access It's Menu *Without* selecting anything.

Note: If you're kinda confused, because you *Still See Absolutely Nothing* in Slot 1, Still has an open menu, plus PC says that's a Pika... Don't worry,that means you're doing it Right! Thumbs Up

9) At this point, open cheats menu then Disable codes in the following order: Pika, DMA, M

10) Release "Invisible Pika".

11) Close PC then exit and re enter PokeCenter.

12) Access PC and select "Move Pokemon" from PC menu options, then scroll through PC Boxes *both* Forwards & Backwards.

* If you did this right, all that should be remaining in Box 1 now is Pika in Slot 3.

* At this point, if you don't want Shiny Surfing Pika, plus have a Pokemon with Surf... Then Release.

Repeat this process *one* Bad EGG at a time until all are gone.

.... I hope I shed some light on this matter & it helped. Smile

I figured it out that whenever a bad egg appears it corrupts one of your pokemons you have stored in the 19 th slot of box 1 I guess ! So what you could do is place a bad egg in this slot !
So every time a bad egg tries to appear in this slot it wont make you lose any of your pokemon !
Guest said: 22nd Jan 2019 | REPORT
Well, it does not work for me. the Pika does not "appear" and the egg is still there....

First of all, this is my first comment... I would like to say... Thank you so much... it really helped me and not just some shed of some light, you bring a wonderful light. Well, There's 2 egg in my pc... I read your guide carefully, but I did it very fast, In my first attempt, it's not a invisible pikachu maybe I did a mistake in but it works perfectly... The second one is an invisible pikachu... And after all of it... Done and finished, it's not a shiny.

Make sure to put your 6th Pokemon in the pc before saving and quitting.

1.Go to battle tower
2.Withraw the bad eggs
3.Save the game
4.Deposit the bad eggs
5.Talk to the 4th lady in the battle tower
