Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl (BDSP) It’s been out for a few days and a Japanese player while playing the game has discovered a bug that is quite difficult to activate but very dangerous.
A save violation is an error that can trigger two things: save corruption, where you can no longer load saves. Or a softlock. As while you can load the save, it’s completely useless since you can’t progress any more. So your only choice left is to restart from scratch.
This newly discovered bug is part of a later catalog. It can be activated when solving a skating puzzle at Snowpoint City’s Gym, right before challenging Suzuna (Candice), the cutest Gym Leader in the game.

Save violation in Pokemon Shining Diamonds and Shining Pearls at Snowpoint City Gym
Japanese player Monaka explained on Twitter how they were permanently trapped in Snowpoint City’s gym. They weren’t sure how they had triggered the bug, but they couldn’t get out of the hole in the center of the gym, after sliding into it from the left slope.
Monaka explained that after sliding down the hole from the left side, they couldn’t go any other way and could only keep sliding left or right. The only way to leave is to reset the game and load your saves. So if you happen to save your game at that point, you’ll be stuck forever.
It’s not clear how the error was triggered, and it seems that it only occurs under very specific conditions. You’ll definitely have to go through the center pit to solve the Gym’s puzzle. To be extra careful, remember to save before entering the Snowpoint City Gym and not until you’ve defeated Candice and left the Gym.
Note that tweet with video of bug cannot be viewed anymore because @Long_Monaka has made their account private. Probably because of the tens of thousands of notifications they received.
Another wall/slope bug was found in Snowpoint Gym. It can be used to pass the other bug above, or it can be used as a skip in speed races:
It could very well be a future Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl Update will fix these errors.
