Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

What happens if you migrate Decamarks itself to another game?

Is it stable? I was just wondering because its Bulbapedia page says it can be obtained through trade (Poke Transfer is what I think it means) in B/W and B/W 2, and be obtained through Pal Park in Gen 4 games. Sorry about all the questions about this guy lately, he intrigues me so much.

I've had my share of days reading Bulbapedia articles about glitch Pokemon too, its very interesting!
Now about Decamarks, if you read the top of its Bulbapedia page, it would state:

"It was programmed into the game to prevent game crashes and is technically not a glitch Pokémon because its information was defined by the programmers. However, ??? can also occupy other values of the 65536 slots available as well as cause glitchy behavior in games, some specific versions may even freeze the game, such as hex DEFD." - Bulbapedia

As stated, it can take many other versions or forms of itself, which in some cases freeze the game.
The rest of the Bulbapedia article doesn't really say anything about its effects in other games, but while it says you are able to transfer or trade it into Generation IV/V games, I think the article itself was representing a general whole of glitch Pokemon (its versions), and not a specific, such as missingno. And migrating data like this into other games (or trading), might change the glitch Pokemon or take on a different form (different versions from each game) because each game might read it differently.
You can infer this from the trivia section of the article page:

"There may be similar glitch Pokémon in the Generation IV games, but no investigation into this matter has been reported." - Bulbapedia

SAM! You're back! I haven't seen you in AGES! :) I'll have to see if I can cheat for one of these things, it intrigues me so much.
Haha yes! :D
I try to go on as much as possible, and I'm on most of the days of the week, but I might look inactive because of lack of answering questions; I try to let newer/other users answer them so they can gain points (unless its a harder question to answer)
