Honestly, if you didn't have "fish plays Pokémon and discovers a brand-new glitch in a 18-year-old game" on your 2020 bingo card, then what are you even doing with your life?

That's right, in what can only be described as "uh, sure, I guess", fish are proving themselves to be the worthy inheritors of the planet Earth, and we should all probably be wary of their ability to rise on up.

If you're not all that worried about all of that, maybe you'd like to know what we're talking about.

So, here's the story of how some fish broke Pokémon Sapphire.

The power of fish

As reported on by Sora News 24, Twitter user @Mutekimaru_ch has discovered an entirely new glitch in Pokémon Sapphire.

Well, actually, their fish did.

Basically, they'd set up a way for their fish to play the game by dividing the fish tank into different inputs and then making it so that the computer would translate those into the game. This allowed his fish to play Pokémon Sapphire, although we're not 100% sure they realised what was going on.

Nevertheless, after a little bit of trouble, they actually managed to beat two Gym Leaders, which is quite an accomplishment. What's really worth noting here, though, is that they then discovered a glitch that nobody has ever seen before.

What's the glitch?

So, as you can see in the video below, the glitch makes it so that instead of pushing one of the boulders with Strength, what actually happens is you just get more boulders.

This all happens on the Seafloor Cavern, which is particularly funny because, well, fish.

The credit for this incredible discovery has been given to Lala, a betta/Siamese fighting fish, who true to their breed, has infinite potential and may well rule over us all in the future.

We recommend you consider learning how to defend against fish attacks and maybe invest in some flippers, just in case.
