A glitch color layer, also known as a glitch screen is an effect in Pokémon Red, Blue, and Yellow in which a layer of a specific color is added over a glitch Pokémon's sprite and possibly the surrounding area.

Glitch color layers are the effect of a glitch Pokémon with invalid palette attribute data.

Glitch color layers occur when playing Pokémon Red and Blue on Super Game Boy mode, as well as Pokémon Yellow on Game Boy Color mode (or Super Game Boy mode; which may feature a different glitch color layer) and Pokémon Yellow (Japanese) in Super Game Boy mode.

Playing the relevant game on another mode (monochrome Game Boy (DMG), Game Boy Color using a palette scheme from the bootstrap ROM, Super Game Boy mode in English/non-English European Yellow) may disable the glitch color layer or replace it with another.

One example of a glitch Pokémon with a glitch color layer is X ゥ- xゥ, (hex:C4), which has a purple glitch coloration.
