Fans have found a way to copy multiple Pokemon at once with a remake of Brilliant Diamonds and Shining Pearls.

Face it Pokemon Brilliant Diamonds and Shining Pearls are some of the most interesting Pokemon releases of recent years and are already unobtrusive DS game low-tech remakes. However, they are noteworthy for two reasons: 1) they are almost as successful as Sword / Shield, and 2) they are full of bugs and are not fire-sensitive.

One of the most well-known examples is glitches that allow players to duplicate Pokemon and items to make accurate copies. This also includes disposable items like legendary Pokemon and masterballs, effectively splitting the game in half.

Recently, someone has come up with a way to simplify the replication process. Specifically, you can use this glitch to copy all the Pokemon in the Pokemon Box and all the items they hold.

A demonstration by YouTuber PanFro Games and instructions on how to run the glitch yourself can be found below. It’s certainly not something you might come across by chance, as it requires a very special set of actions and buttons, but it’s still shocking to be in the game.

Twitter user eclipse_tt The list is embarrassingly long, documenting all the bugs and glitches they can find in the remake. At the time of writing this article, I’ve found at least 64 examples, from being completely stuck just talking to other characters to being able to skip the entire puzzle in one of the gyms in the game.

Pokemon Brilliant Diamonds and Shining Pearls aren’t the only games released this month in such a buggy-broken state. GrandTheftAuto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition and Battlefield 2042 have been attacked for similar reasons.

It’s hard to know what the other two look like, but Pokemon games certainly don’t suffer financially because most or all of their sales are digital. Both surpassed Battlefield 2042 and Call Of Duty: Vanguard on the UK’s physical sales charts, making them the second-selling games of the year.

Not only that, Pokemon Brilliant Diamond is now the best-selling Nintendo Switch game in 2021, and Pokemon Shining Pearl immediately outperforms Metroid Dread’s lifetime sales.
