Miscellaneous glitches of Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen and Pokémon Emerald

Please note that this glitch only exists in the Japanese versions of the game, or is otherwise a glitch
from a Pokémon game which was only released in Japan.

The Mover Vigoroth cry glitch is a sound sample selection oversight in the Japanese version of Pokémon Emerald.

As long as the player hasn't entered their room after starting a new game, they can talk to the truck-unloading Pokémon in their home. In Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, they are a pair of Machoke, and were changed to Vigoroth in Pokémon Emerald, but until the release of the international versions of the game, talking to them caused a text box preceded by Machoke's cry to appear, not Vigoroth's.

Version differences

Possibly due to confusion with other Pokémon games which received bugfix updates (especially the three English versions of Ruby), this glitch is sometimes misattributed to an "early version" of the game; however, Pokémon Emerald was only released in one version (correctly numbered as 1.0) for each of the six monolingual releases, making the claim true only in the sense that the Japanese version launched first.
