Daily Easter Egg #13: FireRed and LeafGreen's "Buggy" Easter Egg


I think they need to hire a new landscaper...

This area in Pok�mon FireRed and LeafGreen called "Pattern Bush" is located just a little north of Fortune Island. �It's pretty strange looking when you walk through it during normal gameplay, and only bug type Pok�mon can be found here. When seen from above, it's pretty obvious that this grass makes some sort of image, or dare I say, pattern. While the trainers there speculate that this area's strange look is some indication that treasure is hidden there, the developers at Game Freak had a completely different intention when designing this area.
As it turns out, the grass is supposed to look like a circuit board from the original Red, Blue, and Green cartridges. And as for only bug type Pok�mon being found there, it's a reference to how buggy the original games are. At least the developers can acknowledge that the original games are less than perfect (I'm looking at you Genwunners)!
