Bulk Up Electabuzz ftw.
I don't totally understand it the way he explained it, but it does seem like an awesome trick.....
Hrm, looks more like that Ditto breeding moves stuff was a bug after all...
I wonder if there's a possibility for them to patch the game via people connecting to WiFi, or if this will simply be a bug we'll have to live with...
According to pika, the RS berry patch was nothing more than a trivial modification of two pointers, or at least in the Japanese version.
On the other hand, this sounds like something non-trivial. Far more so than the walk-through-no-man's-land bug discovered last month. It may not be possible (or desirable) for this to be patched via a save file. For instance, PMD Blue, which was recalled, as you may recall.
As far as the things that have been discovered in Diamond and Pearl so far, it does disappoint me that these weren't discovered prior to release however things cannot be perfect. As long as these glitches do not affect my regular gameplay than I am perfectly content.
Haha. There's a link in that thread to the post *I* made about Ditto not being able to forget the learned moveset. I'm the example. lol
Unless they could fix peoples games without erasing saves, I don't believe Nintendo can do a recall in this case. It's not as easy as the PMD Blue issue was.
What was the PMD Blue issue, if I may ask?
PMD Blue would sometimes erase the save files of whatever was in the GBA slot at the time if it wasn't PMD Red.
Anyway... it's trivial to transfer save files from one card to another, especially since they actually know how the flash chips inside the card operate.
But would the sheer volumes of games not make it a non-trivial matter?
That is true, but I imagine that not everyone is going to return their game... indeed, I doubt that very many people will even take the trouble to do so, since, as others say, it does not affect regular gameplay.
Hmmm...point taken. It's certainly not as serious a fault as far as the every-day gamer is concerned, at least not at this point anyway. And given the nature of the problem, it's probably better that they use a hotfix anyway, if only so people couldn't possibly attempt to gain an unfair advantage in WiFi battles over people who did get a fixed copy.
