There is a bug in Pokemon X and Y, and no, I’m not talking about a Scyther or Weedle. Be warned, Pokemon X and Y have a game breaking bug that will permanently and irretrievably corrupt your save file.
Reported across European and Japanese versions of the game, the bug occurs if you save in Lumiose City. This can happen at any point in the game – it’s not just an early game bug. Here is a video that shows what the bug does to your game:
Just to be on the safe side, save in a building, or outside the city. Nintendo has not yet acknowledged this problem, and we hope it will be patched soon. In the meantime, simply avoid saving in Lumiose city to save yourself from possible aggravation and heartbreak.
