What exactly happens if you migrate a 3rd Gen Poke holding an (8 ?'s) to a Gen 4 game?

An Eight ?'s item would be like this. You get (8 ?'s) from Decamarks.

Bulbapedia says it makes the migrated Pokemon glitched. I wonder if anyone has ever done that...

EDIT: Can I get a test of this to see what could happen for D/P, Pt, and HG/SS? I'm just curious to see what'd happen...

The item can only make a Pokémon that is holding it become glitched if migrated to Pokémon Diamond or Pearl.

They become glitched. It says it in your link.

Duh. I was aware of that. I even wrote it up there. I'd like a description OF the glitch.
Glitching can be anything theres no way to tell how they will glitch. They could disappear or they just change into a different pokemon who knows
Anyone who tests will know
Im saying theres no definite glitch that would happen
a glitch could be like messing up the sprite
Could be....
Don't think anyone would test, due to the potential of ruining their game.
I mean like on a ROM. You have those mods, right? Even though I don't know how to use them.
