Pokémon Brilliant Diamond Battle’s Giant Infernape Glitch Is Wild

A visual glitch in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond causes a huge Infernape, a flaming monkey-like Pokémon, to observe a battle from the background.

Weird bug in Shiny Diamond Pokémon spawns a huge Infernape in the background during a Pokémon battle. The recently released remake brings the years 2006 Pokemon Diamond in modern times, with improved graphics and quality of life changes. Despite Shiny Diamond and Shiny Pearl Pokémonpositive changes, the most recent titles in the series unfortunately include a lot of bugs and glitches.

Shiny Diamond and Shiny Pearl Pokémon was met with positive feedback from fans, with praise directed at title updates and fidelity to the 2006 originals. Unfortunately, a variety of issues marred an otherwise great experience for some players. A relatively common issue allows Team Galactic, an antagonistic group of rival Pokémon trainers, to steal a player’s collection of creatures. During a cutscene, the villains run away with a member of the player’s Pokémon party, but luckily this is just a visual issue and doesn’t actually remove the creature from the player’s roster. Pokémon BDSP fans also reportedly got stuck behind non-player characters, forcing them to reset their game, and at least one player encountered a Legendary Pokémon that was not meant to be available in their version of the remake. Shiny Diamond and Shiny Pearl PokémonThe duplication issue can allow players to clone their Pokémon and valuable items, potentially giving them a huge advantage in the monster collecting role-playing game.

Now a weird visual issue in Shiny Diamond Pokémon, captured by Reddit user Cavannugent, summons a massive Infernape to wander through the backdrop of an intense battle. The Flaming Monkey is the latest evolved form of Chimchar, a starter Pokémon offered in the game alongside Turtwig and Piplup. Infernape is generally not a monstrous giant, resulting in a lot of confusion when the Fire and Fight type appears in massive size in this issue. The flaming monkey seen in the bug appears to be just a static image, so the battle itself is not interrupted by the bizarre event. The cause of this Pokémon BDSP the visual issue is unknown, but Infernape appears to disappear shortly after the start of the battle.

While many unintended issues have surfaced in the game since launch, many players have also spoken out against some of the entirely intentional changes to Shiny Diamond and Shiny Pearl Pokémon. Each entry in the beloved franchise includes a battle timer, which ensures that battles cannot go on indefinitely. While older titles like Diamond and Pearl featuring a 60 minute timer, 2019 Pokémon Sword and Shield reduces this time to just 20 minutes. Shiny Diamond and Shiny Pearl PokémonBattle Timer adopts that much shorter 20-minute time limit, which many players have criticized for making intense fights too short.

Despite the positive reception of the remakes, Shiny Diamond and Shiny Pearl Pokémon have a fairly large number of technical issues. Simple visual issues, like Cavannugent’s massive Infernape background or Team Galactic’s kidnapping of a player’s Pokémon, are distracting but harmless. Meanwhile, issues like the game duplication issue can have a very tangible effect on a player’s experience and game balance. While developer ILCA hasn’t addressed these issues, a fix may be needed to improve the polish of the games.
