    Default B/W Glitch Discussion Thread

    Discuss any glitches you have come across in the games, or glitches such as the Sky Drop glitch, the ones listed here, and so on.

    Personally, I haven't encountered any glitches yet unless you count this as a glitch.

    Here's a glitch that I learned the hard way. In Triple Battles, if two or more of your Pokemon are knocked out in the same turn, and if you have more than one Pokemon in reserve, then you're stuck. Basically, you choose one Pokemon to bring out, then it would allow you to choose another, but when you do, it says *said Pokemon* cannot be switched out now. Thus, you're stuck and have no choice but to reset.
    The moral here? SAVE BEFORE YOU DO A TRIPLE BATTLE.
    If you wanna battle me, then battle with your favorite Pokemon, not ones that everyone else uses.

    I thought that originally but what you have to do is choose the one to send out, then the pokemon that it is replacing. Then you get to choose the second one.

    Nope, no glitches! (And I would like it to stay that way) But I'd like to see this thread later, because glitches are pretty interesting when you're not the victim.
    I'd love to try the Sky Drop glitch, though.
    Ah, yes, I probably just said something stupid there, didn't I? Not surprising, I've been called an idiot on multiple occasions, although I do consider myself to be more intelligent than most...

    Wait...really? Hm...they could've made that a little more obvious, honestly.

    Still, that helps.

    It happened to me but I didn't reset...I had one Pokemon left which was my Zebstrika and it wouldn't let me send him out and I clicked on my fainted Haxorus and it sent out my Zebstrika.

    Another glitch is in a building I walked right on top of this old lady a few times and couldn't move until she moved.

    I don't think the verdict was ever final, but there's a decent chance that Sheer Force's ability to ignore things like Red Card, Life Orb, Shell Bell, and so on is a glitch.

    That's not a glitch. Game Freak and Nintendo did something and made it where we can't nickname our Pokemon inappropriate names. Though i do not see how Chichi would be inappropriate.

    Yes that is a Female Dino Charge Red. It's a FanFic thing

    When I'm picking a move sometimes it goes to a description of the move instead of using it.

    Hey guys, just curious.... is this a glitch?

    When in the Celestial Tower in Route 7, after entering the 3rd floor, when you press B, every trainer moves a certain direction...I'm sure they only move towards the direction you're running from but I thought it was weird.

    I have a really weird situation on my hands.

    I'm walking on Driftveil Drawbridge for the first time on Black. Everything is fine; I pick up a Clever Wing off the ground. I walking on the bridge, and I'm surprised to hear the flapping sounds, but no feathers falling to the bridge. I really want a Ducklett for my team, so I'm looking all over the place. I've doubled back on the bridge, I've exited and re-entered. I'm not using a Bike or anything...All that's left is resetting (I saved just before the bridge, luckily).

    Anyone else have this odd...glitch? If it is a glitch at all?

    I've yet to encounter any glitches of any sort, although there's talk on Bulbagarden that the gender ratios may have been screwed up. A lot of people are having trouble trying to get a male Scraggy, and someone reports that over half of his Pokemon turned out to have Careful natures, and he doesn't even have a Synchronize Pokemon, so it can't be that.

    Actually, I think I may have found a glitch or two, both involving the GTS. It seems that former Shadow Pokemon can't be traded because of their special ribbon. The GTS wouldn't allow me to put my Mr. Mime up for trade, giving me the exact same line as if I had tried to trade off something with a Classic Ribbon. This was not the case in Generation IV, because I distinctly remember trading away my Sing+Dream Eater Froslass. Also, it won't allow me to trade my Skuntank. Nothing out of the ordinary about it, either. I bred it in Platinum, trained it myself, only ribbon is the Effort Ribbon. When I try to offer it, it says "That Pokemon may not be offered for trade!", and then gives me some five-digit number in parentheses, almost like an error code. The only possible problem I can think of is that it knows Iron Tail. But the GTS doesn't ban trades involving stuff with moves that they could only get in past generations via TM, because I traded away a Shock Wave Chimecho with no problems.

    ...Just in case, go check if Iron Tail bypass Wonder Guard.


    Just in case.

    Don't worry, it's not a glitch.
    I had the same thing happen.

    The problem was the "shadow" that yields either Feather or Ducklett can also appear on the black areas that follow the very edge of the bridge so it can be extremely hard to see.

    Next time this happens, take a look at the bridge edges carefully.
    Also be noted that you can hear the sound before you can actually see the shadow, so you may need to move farther on the bridge.

    That would have bearing on whether or not something with the move could be traded? Eh, I'll try it, though. Should be easy enough. Dual wild encounter, send out Skuntank and Shedinja, target Shedinja with Iron Tail.

    Yeah, the new nickname filter is rather flawed. One extra letter, number, character, or even space will make a name allowable. I tried naming a Fearow the F-word, nothing. Added an "e" to the end of it, success.

    And it's not just cuss words and sexual stuff either (it's odd that "chichi" isn't allowed when "boobs" is, though). You can't nickname anything "Hitler", "nazi", or "9/11". It seems that anything that could be considered offensive to anyone is blocked. Oddly, though, "racist" is allowed.
