• Hello all! The forum staff have introduced a new rule set. We've reduced the number of rules, made trick language easier to understand, and have hopefully simplified the rules to make understanding them easier. Please have a read over the new forum rules here.

  • Hey everyone, if you hadn't heard, information about Sword and Shield has been leaking. Outside of the designated threads in our Current Events section, please keep all unrevealed Pokemon, names, or any other information in spoiler tags. This policy will be in effect until January 3rd. This is an exciting time for Pokémon fans, enjoy yourselves!
  • Recently, some of our fellow Pokémon fan sites have received legal requests to take down leaked Sword and Shield images. We have not received one of these requests yet, but we are taking some preemptive measures to stay on the safe side. We ask that from now until the games release (November 15th) that you do not post any new leaked images anywhere on the forums.

Nintendo has officially acknowledged two glitches in the newly-released Pokémon Diamond and Pearl. Both glitches allow the player to enter no-man's land. The first glitch may occur when going to the second floor of a Pokémon Center, and the second glitch may cause players to corrupt their save state. Knowledge of the second glitch spread quickly after the discovery that it is possible to go to places requiring special items not obtainable in-game.

Isn't it ironic that the recovery program will be distributed to DS Stations? After all, it is the knowledge that the three promotional items are programmed to be unlocked by some other download method pertaining to the anime movies (apparently a GBA cartridge not for personal use, as was done earlier this year with the Ranger movie promotion) that makes the second glitch so appealing.

Basically, the first events for Darkray, Sheimi and Arseus will most likely be much of the same as 2003's Jirachi promotion. After that, those Pokémon (as well as Manaphy) will share the same fate as the third generation's Mew, Lugia, Ho-oh, Celebi, Jirachi and Deoxys--the DS Stations and soon enough WiiConnect24 can serve as more accessible means of their distribution, but will they?

Do you think these glitches will be repaired before the game is translated and released elsewhere?

Thankfully, neither of these glitches is all that damaging either. While it's possible to set them off, they're fairly easily recovered, so long as one doesn't save, and it's fairly difficult to set them off accidentally most of the time.

You can't ask for Pokémon you haven't seen, so it would be rather difficult to get it off the GTS.
