Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl Players will surely dread Candice’s gym challenge in Snowpoint City. While the battle itself isn’t too exhausting, the puzzle that leads to it certainly is. You must cross icy terrain, with one step leading to battle with the high-powered trainer. However, players on Reddit have figured out how a Candice gym bug lets you skip this tricky puzzle.
How to skip Candice gym puzzle in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl
Yes, thanks user u / NotWill, there is a bug that makes you skip the Candice gym puzzle. If you regularly run up the ice mounds that separate the gym’s layers, there’s a small chance you’ll get lucky and malfunction or more. If successful, you will go to the next level of the gym. That means you don’t have to fight each of the four trainers scattered around it.
Of course, this doesn’t always work and will require a lot of trial and error. If you get your movement wrong a bit, you won’t go up, or you’ll fly over the ice, into a trainer’s path. However, thanks to the movement of the joystick in these new Pokemon games, you can be more precise than the D-pad.
Similarly, there is a risk that doing this could get you stuck in an autosave loop. If you get stuck on terrain and find yourself unable to move, restarting the game won’t help you. Therefore, if you are going to use this glitch, you should disable autosave first to avoid getting stuck.
Still, it’s a useful glitch that lets you bypass the game’s most puny puzzle with relative ease. It will likely be patched in the near future, so if the Snowpoint City gym is on your way, you might want to do it soon.
