I've been attempting the Pomeg Berry Glitch in Pokemon Emerald for a while now and I feel like I'm doing something wrong;
I caught a fresh Makuhita from VIctory Road(no EVs), taught it Rock Smash as it's first move(which would produce a Lugia due to the number of the move), and cloned it many times using the Battle Frontier cloning glitch.
I placed them in Box 1 and 2(labeled Pomeg 1 and 2 respectivally) in a lined pattern, each line next to a line of cloned versions of the in-game trade Plusle PLUSES with no EVs and the only move being Growl(I did this as a corruption initiator).
I performed the glitch lots of times but I whenever I get a Makuhita to turn into a regular egg, it hatches into another Makuhita instead of a Lugia.
I was using a Breloom as the Pokemon I used the Pomeg Berry on, a Rayquaza as a fainted flyer(in case the map data gets corrupted) and a Gardevoir as the Pokemon I switch into battle right before I use the berry then put in my PC.
In case it matters, whenever PLUSES turnes into a regular egg, it hatches into a Vileplume.
I've gone on every site and watched every video on it(mainly Werster's) but I still can't find an answer.
Am I doing something wrong or am I just getting super unlucky?? Please answer I need this glitch to work for my Livingdex.
