Nintendo Aware of Pokémon X & Y Save Bug, Working on Fix

October 18, 2013 - GamePolitics Staff

Nintendo of Japan said today that it is aware of a rare, save-corrupting bug that is affecting some players of its latest 3DS Pokémon titles, Pokémon X and Y. The company says that it is working diligently to create a fix that players will be able to download "soon."

The bug occurs when players attempt to save their game outside in Lumiose City. A map showing where this bug can occur can be found at this link, though the language on the map is in Japanese.

Users affected by the bug report that their save files are made completely inaccessible. Nintendo claims that the fix it will release should be able to restore the saves of players.

The bug affects both the physical retail versions of the game as well as digital purchases.

Pokémon X and Pokémon Y launched worldwide last week, selling over four million copies in its first weekend on sale.

I think a word is missing in "The bug occurs when players attempt to save their game outside Lumiose City". Since the bug is if you save while outside IN Lumiose City, not just outside anywhere else.

Yep, you're right.  Fixed.
