WARNING:Frozen Game Glitch in Pkmn XY

Journal Entry: Tue Oct 15, 2013, 1:26 PM

I just got my X version only to have it glitch my entire game around the 5th badge!
I was about to battle the electric gym leader, I thought I'd save it and play tomorrow. I woke up today and BAM. My avatar was frozen, I couldn't touch anything on my touch screen and I have to physically turn it off......

Here's a picture of my screen, I saved near the cafe I think. There are no buildings and no textures. I have a physical copy of the game. 


I don't know what to do....I guess its happening to everyone.....

Here's an article and video of other people getting the glitch!…

Do NOT save in Lumiose city, try saving in doors or out of the city.

I don't want to lose everything in my game....I've already put 17 hours into it and just got Sylveon. ;A;

Can anyone help?

I'm so bummed....

I have some good news!  Nintendo is aware of the issue and is working on a patch as we speak.  Hopefully that makes the situation better for you.  :)

hey girl!  i told my husband about this and he gave me this to send you :…

hopefully you haven't restarted yet so you can try it out.  or maybe you have fixed it already!  i will definitely be keeping an eye on where i save!

  • First, turn off your 3DS
  • Then take out your SD card out of the console.
  • Turn on the 3DS and just start up your affected Pokémon game normally.
  • Everything SHOULD be fine from this point. Immanently leave the current area and save elsewhere (Pokémon centres are a good choice for this).
  • After saving turn off your 3DS and reinsert the SD card.

so far, ive heard removing the SD card and/or the game cartridge might work

Oh I hope mine doesn't do that. I think I'm inside but I'm in lumiose city I hope that gets fixed for everyone. And I want a sylveon lol I had an eevee and she just evolved into espeon. I didn't know eevees evolved on their own. I wanted a leafeon and had a leaf stone but I couldn't give it to her. Only my water and fire stone.

How did you get sylveon?

Your Eevee has to have a fairy type move and bond in poke-amie. Then level up.
