Warning: Game breaking bug could damage your Pokémon X & Y save


There is a potentially game-breaking bug in both Pokémon games. While it's unsure whether this happens to everyone that saves outside of Lumiose City, it has already happened to a few users.

Apparently if you save outside of Capital, Lumiose City, you'll experience some weird bugs upon restarting the game.

This is a users post from GameFaqs:

I saved near a cab in Lumiose City and now whenever I try to restart my game it immediately freeezes. It loads my trainer and all of my clothes as well as the buildings and their lighting effects, but none of the objects in the streets or the textures on the buildings show up.

Pokémon-Amie is also frozen on my bottom-screen without loading anything and the game won't return to the Home menu when I push my button. I can hard-shutoff, but the 3DS internal software is completely frozen.

The only evidence I can find that anyone's had similar trouble is a single YouTube video uploaded by someone who speaks some Asian language.

Anyways, I'm posting this both in hopes of informing everyone else playing the game, and in hopes of finding a fix that doesn't involve deleting my save.

It's probably a shot in the dark, but if anyone knows how to fix this, could you please tell me? I really don't want to start a new save file since I'm just past Clemont and only just managed to get my entire team to their final evolutions!

Apparently this happens on both digital and physical copies of the game. Hopefully Gamefreak can address this issue sooner than later, since Pokémon X & Y is easily the best in the series to date.
