Freezing Pikachu's sprite glitch is a glitch in Pokémon Yellow.


In order for the player to get this glitch to work, they must jump off a ledge with Pikachu active. The player must keep the d-pad held down while Pikachu is turning by itself. If the glitch is performed correctly, Pikachu's sprite will not animate.

The effects of this glitch seem to be purely cosmetic, and it is unlikely to affect the gameplay in any other way.
