In Pokémon FireRed, LeafGreen & Emerald, lies a cave named the Altering Cave.
At first glance, all it has are wild Zubat, which makes me people ask "why the heck does this cave even exist to begin with".
As it turns out, there is more to this cave than it meets the eye.
This cave was programmed to make use of special Mystery Gifts, that would allow the wild Pokémon species that appears to be altered.
Sadly, this game feature never had an event to make use of it.
Following it's initial release in Pokémon FireRed & LeafGreen, all the Pokémon that could have been caught from here,
could also be encountered in the extended Safari Zone of Pokémon Emerald.
(with the exception of Smeargle: it can be caught in Artisan cave in Battle Frontier)
Despite these Pokémon all being available in Pokémon Emerald, it's not known why this cave was also included for it.
This page hosts the Pokémon that can be encountered in an altered Altering Cave, as well as other means to get them to appear.
This page also holds a custom wonder card, that can be used to cycle through the encounters of Altering Cave, whenever you talk to the deliveryman!
Take note: if you toss/remove the wonder card, the encounters in Altering Cave will be stuck at the last species encountered.
Also note: FireRed/LeafGreen & Emerald have their own wonder cards. FRLG cannot use Emerald wonder card and vice versa.
The encounters that get cycled are (and it wraps back to the start):
Zubat, Mareep, Pineco, Houndour, Teddiursa, Aipom, Shuckle, Stantler, Smeargle.

Card is English language,
but works on the
Wonder Card (Hint: You'll need the WC3TOOL to inject wonder cards into your save.)
Also, PKHeX usage:
Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen: Event constant 36
Pokémon Emerald: Event constant 62
Cycling through 0 to 8 in the above given event constant, results in the rotation of the species that appears.

Analysis of the Pokemon Bank gift format shows that it holds WC6FULL files, and can hold up to 6 of them.
The remaining 3, while having it's species dummied out, actually holds data:
What's interesting with the information above is:
1. OT is Satoshi (ASH)
2. All Distribution titles (including for the Regi's) is "Zekrom Present"
3. Fusion Bolt and Haze, are both moves associated with Zekrom (or more specifically, Ash's Zekrom)
4. The inclusion of Light of Ruin and Fairy Gem
Speculating on what the leftover data means:
The data suggests that Ash's Zekrom was initially used for testing,
but the changing of the first move to Eternal Flower Floette's signature move and the inclusion of the Fairy Gem,
hints that Eternal Flower Floette could have been the second round of testing, before getting the Species and Forme data wiped out.
As such, I'm also attaching a modified wonder card to showcase the Eternal Flower Floette.
This Pokémon was first seen as a sketch in AZ's flashback, and later seen as a 3D model after that battle with Pokemon Trainer AZ.
Since then, it was discovered to be a Pokémon with fully programmed data, however was never released to players.
Besides Pokémon X&Y, the data for this Pokémon exists in Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire, Pokémon Sun & Moon, Pokémon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon
and also Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu & Eevee (while the species was not available, the data is in the personal_info narc).
Additionally, I also attached a slightly recreated Ash's Zekrom; an re-imagining of the first debugger gift format.
Programmed into Pokemon Diamond, Pearl and Platinum Versions, is an unreachable location called the Hall of Origin.
There, players will be able to challenge and potentially capture a level 80 wild Arceus.
However, the key item that would activate an in-game event to reach this place, the Azure Flute, was never released.
Based on an interview with Junichi Masuda with Nintendo World Report in 2013,
it was revealed that the Azure Flute event was thought to be too confusing for players, hence the idea of distributing it was scrapped.
Before the JP Movie Arceus distribution in Gen 6, one of the reasons why this event is much coveted,
with many attempting to get a tweaking method to succeed, is due to the fact that this Arceus can be encountered shiny.
This page contains the Arceus that would have been encountered there, achieved by some form of cheating:
[SPA] Spanish Arceus, credits @suloku [ENG] English Arceus, credits @theSLAYER (TID/SID/OT modded to follow suloku's copy) [KOR] Korean Arceus, credits @theSLAYER [JPN] Japanese Arceus, credits @theSLAYER
To contribute an Arceus of a language not yet contributed, do so here:
The Key Item Azure Flute, which would allow a holy encounter with Arceus, was never legitimately released to players.
However, found within a file (decchi.bin), that was found in Generation 4 distribution carts for Deoxys, (Uploader's note: file-ception at it's finest)
It appears that an Azure Flute distribution was being tested via slot-2 distribution.
The nature of the slot-2 distribution game that this wonder card was obtained from, only allowed distribution to JPN games.
The distribution text seems to be reusing the distribution text for a Generation 3 Old Sea Chart distribution.
It was also discovered by @Deoxyz that changing the distribution type from Key Item to Pokemon, will show complete information for an Infernape to be received.
It was also discovered by @DeadSkullzJr that the copy of the wonder card in the game (seen via hex) slightly differs from the wonder card that was received. The one in the game has a redistribution count. Presumably this copy has the redistribution count, but the received one does not, because it does not allow players who received a copy to redistribute.
The Key Item Azure Flute wonder card (.pcd), Modified to show Infernape (.pcd) and the Infernape (.pkm) are up for download.
[We will not host the decchi.bin or Distribution Roms for the Deoxys]
Update: Even though the remakes Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl included a way to get Azure Flute and the Hall of Origin Arceus encounter, owning the Gen 4 HoO Arceus would still be illegal.
Gen 4 Decchi - Azure Flute.pcd - Extracted from save that received it. The one without redistribution count.
Gen 4 Decchi - Azure Flute (Hex Extracted, Redistribution count).pcd - Hex extracted from the game. The one with redistribution count.
Gen 4 Decchi - Infernape.pcd - The receiving type was modified to show the Infernape gift hiding within
Gen 4 Decchi - Infernape.pkm - A pk4 file of the extracted Infernape.
Wonder card Images
While this wonder card will activate the event, the Arceus right now can be considered illegal and legal.
Do note it's possible to obtain a Hall of Fame Arceus via Tweaking, and it'll pass Pokemon Bank when it's Level 100,
but that can be easily changed, if they decide to block it.
Use at your own risk.
Images regarding Infernape:
Throughout Pokemon Sun & Moon, there have been many encounters with Pokemon that cannot be captured,
due to various reasons set up by the developers by various story elements.
As these Pokemon are uncatchables, they were obtained by extraction from RAM dumps.

While this forme is accessible once you capture Necrozma, and gain access to the the N-Solarizer and N-Lunarizer,
and also having a Solgaleo or Lunala in your team (for the fusion process),
this forme, like Mega Evolution, cannot be maintained outside battle.
How this file was obtained, was by using NTR Codes that allowed catching of Trial Pokemon,
as this Pokemon was not meant to be captured as-is in the games.
This encounter cannot be shiny. This file will make your game save illegal.

With a Base Stat Total of over 1,000, Eternamax Eternatus is probably not meant to be owned by any trainer.
However, by hacking it into a raid (save edit), and setting the form to 1 (instead of the default 0), after it was caught in a raid battle,
it does not revert back to regular Eternatus.
(Even if the "send into box" and party/summary screen shows a regular Eternatus)
This can also be achieved with a ROM edit: instead of having the EncounterScenario as Eternatus_3 in pkNX, if it was changed to a scenario that allows catching, such as Regigigas_Raid_Battle or Motostoke_Gym_Challenged, it could be captured, and would retain it's form.
Here's an example of me messing with the EncounterScenario:
The Eternamax Eternatus can be brought to the Isle of Armor and have it follow you, and a somewhat small version of it will follow you, when you set it to the lead in your party.
However, it will stay on the spot, and is unable to follow you. Thanks to Anubis (Sibuna_Switch) for testing this. (source video)
Important to note: loading any save with Eternatus in Eternamax mode will cause it to revert to standard form.
Having this in your save will make it illegal. As per any item in the Unreleased/Beta PKM Gallery, use at your own risk.
In Pokemon HeartGold & SoulSilver, when players bring an event Shiny Pichu to the shrine at Ilex Forest, players will receive a Spiky-eared Pichu.
The Spiky-eared Pichu comes with the moves Pain Split (unique event move), Volt Tackle (egg move in Gen 4), Swagger (TM move), and Helping Hands (HGSS Move Tutor),
at Lv. 30 holding a Zap Plate, Female, and it cannot be shiny.
Through the power of hacking, theSLAYER obtained a shiny Spiky-eared Pichu.
[this was obtained by changing TID/SID of the Pokemon, to make it shiny.]
It's normally impossible to obtain more than one Spiky-eared Pichu, as it cannot be traded,
and it also cannot be transferred to future generations.

A Battle Video was released to promote Zeraora, and various hackers went to dump the Battle Video, in order to extract the Zeraora.
What is interesting, is that this file has the same details as the Japanese distribution.
The other Pokemon from the Battle Video was also added to this page.
They've been leveled to Lv.100, as their level was meant to be 100, evident by the fact that they were hyper trained.
Additionally, the Battle Video has also been added to this page!

This file was hosted on Mystery Gift Servers of Pokemon Omega Ruby, however was ultimately not released for download.
It is speculated that the purpose of this wonder card was simply to test if the serial code service is functioning properly,
as hinted by it's internal name.
This card was uploaded twice on two different occasions, with 2 different internal names.
Both contain the exact same data.
While the distribution title and text is in Japanese, it oddly has the English OT name of Helen.
This Volcanion would be nearly indistinguishable from the Volcanion given out using the used Helen Volcanion wondercard,
provided it was collected on the 3DS of the correct region.

This Magearna has the TID hacked to be Shiny, nothing changed apart of that.
At the time this post is made, this Pokémon is marked as legal in PKHeX and it is currently unknown if Home can assign a Shiny TID for the Magearna. However, there are no report of a legitimate Shiny Magearna yet and Sword / Shield servers refuse to trade this Pokémon, so i assume it's definitely Shiny Locked.
This Pokemon is now correctly shown as illegal by PKHeX.
The original one is downloadable here:
Out there in the wild, exists a German Language Debugger's/Developer's Edition of Pokemon Ruby Version,
which contains many debugging tools, including Mystery Event distribution subroutines.
Using existing unmodified subroutines, a Tournament Unown can be transferred.

the remaining Pokemon could be transferred by doing modifications in order to activate the other subroutines,

Glastrier & Spectrier
These are a Glastrier and a Spectrier that were forced-set to be catchable, from the Crown Tundra Legends (2022) event.
The event featured a lv. 60 Galstrier/Spectrier that was not catchable.
GMax Urshifu and Shiny GMax Urshifu (Single Strike & Rapid Strike)
These are a Single Strike Urshifu and a Rapid Strike Urshifu, both with the ability to Gigantamax, that were forced-set to be catchable, from the Urshifu Challenge (2022) event.
The event featured a lv. 60 Single Strike/Rapid Strike Urshifu that were not catchable.
During the first hours of the event it was possible to encounter their Shiny variant with standard odds.
Zeraora & Shiny Zeraora
These are a Zeraora and a Shiny Zeraora that were forced-set to be catchable, from the Zeraora Challenge (2020) event.
The event featured a Zeraora (of various levels) and a lvl. 100 Shiny Zeraora that were not catchable.
This is a Mewtwo that was forced-set to be catchable, from the Pokémon Day (2020) event.
Even tho it was battled with 6 perfect IVs, when caught, it doesn't have any IVs.
(It's a game mechanic to only offer 0, 2 and 3 guaranteed IVs, when caught.)
This is a Gigantamax Cinderace that was forced-set to be catchable, from the Easter (2021) event.
The event featured a Level 60 Gigantamax Cinderace that was not catchable by the player.
This is a Magikarp that was forced-set to be catchable, from the April Fools (2021) event.
The event featured a Magikarp (of various levels) that was not catchable by the player.
In Pokemon Black 2 & White 2, lies the facility Pokestar Studios, which allow players to create "films",
which is done by having users battles Props (between a pair of legs and Mecha Tyranitar),
which are not traditional Pokemon.
Fan term for these Studio Creatures/Props are known as Studiomons.
At present, the only Pokemon dumped from RAM is are(thanks @jojo12100😞
Majin F-00 Black Door White Door
Bringing any of these "Pokemon" out of the PC will cause it to turn into an unusable bad egg.
The only way to use it via the Battle Box feature,
but do note that none of the Studiomons have a back sprite, so it will appear as a black square.

Presently it appears PKHeX may allow importing into a B2W2 Save (perhaps with limitations),
but if it doesn't, this programs accepts it's usage too:
After disassembling the code of a multiboot gba rom discovered in Pokemon Colosseum Bonus Disc (US),
@Bond697 found that it distributes an unreleased METEOR Jirachi,
that seems to be the translation/mirrored version of the ネガイボシ (Wishing Star) Jirachi.
Original Thread describing the find from years ago:
In Pokemon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire, players will receive a Cosplay Pikachu, after taking part in a Pokemon Contest Spectacular.
The Cosplay Pikachu comes with it's Hidden Ability Lightning Rod, and an exclusive move that changes with the costume.
Cosplay Pikachu normally cannot be obtained shiny in-game.
Through the power of hacking, theSLAYER obtained a few Cosplay Pikachu that are different from normal.
1. Shininess + Hidden Ability (Lightning Rod)
2. Shininess + Ability Slot 1 (Static)
[these were obtained by changing TID/SID of the Pokemon, to make it shiny. Also, ability changed for non-HA versions]
It's normally impossible to obtain more than one Cosplay Pikachu, and like Spiky-Eared Pikachu,
it cannot be traded (or deposited into Pokemon Bank), and cannot be transferred to future generations.
Pokémon Sun & Moon introduced a variant Pikachu that wear's Ash's Hat (Cap Pikachu) AND
Let's Go Pikachu introduced a variant that is your buddy (Partner Pikachu),
and it's interesting to note they removed shiny coloration for the alternate model that fills the shiny slot,
meaning that Cosplay Pikachu may be the last Pikachu Variant that have Shiny Models, even when shiny locked.

This Celebi was included on the same distribution cartridge as the three GameStop Johto Beasts,
but was replaced with a new one containing the Celebi with the WIN2011 OT before the event began.
While never officially released, some customers and employees were able to receive this Celebi through changing the clock on the DS with the distribution cart.
In HeartGold and SoulSilver, this Celebi can activate an event at Ilex Shrine involving time travel and a battle with the Team Rocket Boss, Giovanni.
When it is sent to Black or White versions via the Relocator, it can be used to meet a Zorua in Castelia City.

In Pokemon Emerald, contains a programmed event encounter with the Mythical Pokemon Mew.
However, the key item that activates the event, Old Sea Map, was never released to players outside of Japan.
This page hosts the Mew that is caught at Faraway Island.
As an extra illegal bonus, it's caught with the Safari Ball, that cannot be obtained outside of the Safari Zone.
It is possible to reach Faraway Island in Non-English and Non-Japanese other European languaged games,
using an elaborate usage of glitches, as explained by ChickasaurusGL below.
It is unclear whether the non-Japanese Mew can be sent up via Pokemon Bank.
In Generation IV of the core series games, a ???-type Arceus was programmed into the game, the same typing as the move Curse.
However, it goes unused, as there is no legitimate way to convert Arceus's type into ???-type.
While it is possible to change the Arceus's forme via hacking,
as it is not holding the correct plate (which doesn't exist), it will revert back to normal-type when it enters battle.
Generation V and onwards, the move Curse has been changed to ghost-type,
and this forme of Arceus has been removed.

A Original Colored Magearna can be obtained from Pokémon HOME, as a reward for completing its National Dex.
However, a Lv.10 Magearna that had 15 ribbons attached to it was obtainable by players within a few hours on Pokémon HOME's launch day.
One reasoning, would be the devs were testing/creating the intend Magearna, and they didn't realize that this glitched Magearna was flagged as obtainable by player.
Given an official announcement wasn't given on how to obtain one, some players stumbled across it without knowing the requirements to receive it, hence it was not easy to replicate receiving one.
This Magearna was contributed by @RylDmn (u/RylDmn), and thanks to Xrex2 (discord) for reaching out on our behalf.
Besides the contribution credit, other private user details on the mon/images were wiped.
