Duplication errors discovered in the Pokémon Diamond and Pearl remakes – archyde

The new releases Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shiny Pearl have been out for less than a week, and it appears that a duplication bug has already been discovered allowing Trainers to clone Pokémon and even any attached items like Master Balls.

As highlighted by @orcastraw, this bug was originally discovered by Pokémon players and Twitter users @kevinfor5. Here is the full explanation:

And here are the steps to replicate that bug (about Nintendo Everything):

1. Put two Pokémon that are in the same position in different boxes (like the lower right corner)
2. Take one of these Pokémon and put it in the Battle Box
3. Go to Solaceon’s day care center, talk to the woman and choose the Pokémon from the other box
4. Before closing, click on the “Box List” at the bottom left
5. Press “Y” and swap the slots they are placed in, then deposit your Pokemon
6. Open your boxes again and go to the Battle Box
7. Take a Pokémon that you want to “delete” and insert it
8. Take the Pokémon you want to clone and add it to the list
9. Display the summary screen of the Pokémon you just added; When you get out again, it will be cloned

If you choose to run into this error, you do so at your own risk. And it’s likely that The Pokémon Company and developer ILCA will release a patch for it as soon as possible.
