(hex:AA) is a glitch item in Pokémon Red and Blue.

It is an unterminated name glitch item, hence provides the effects associated with those glitches and allows for glitches such as Yami Shop glitch and LOL glitch.

Stray characters may be printed on lines below the item name. This is due to the control character $4e in the name, which tells the text engine to go to a new line.

When a 0x50 sub-tile is in the saved screen copy, this glitch item brings up Professor Oak's message that it isn't the time to use the item.

This glitch item shares its effect pointer with item $2A (HELIX FOSSIL), but the fossil scientist at Cinnabar Island's Pokémon Lab won't recognise it as a fossil.
