ORAS Surfing Wailmer evolve freeze
« on: December 02, 2014, 08:32:29 am »
Found this thread on reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/pokemon/comments/2o0di4/psa_i_found_a_game_crashing_bug_regarding_wailmer/

Will quote the contents just in case the post gets deleted.

Wailmer, as we all know, has a special surf sprite. If you let it evolve while you are surfing on it, your game crashes and both screens go black.

Can anyone confirm?

This should be p. easy to trigger. You can catch a Lv 40 Waimer with a Super Rod and feed it a Rare Candy while surfing on it.

I'm using Patch 1.1.
It didn't work via Rare Candies. I'm going to try and battle.
It didn't work via trainer battles either. It could be something that was fixed in the 1.1 patch.

Edit: I didn't do it on the route he mentioned.

I'm using US/Alpha Sapphire. My Sprite Changed after the Wailmer Evolved (back to the normal one).

My version is Omega Ruby. I tried the water west of Mossdeep in v1.0, both via leveling up and by Rare Candying, and it didn't work. I also tried Route 134 via leveling up and Rare Candying and it still didn't work.

So I tried a few different things; I encountered a Trainer near Shoal Cave and evolved Wailmer during the battle, and that didn't work, but maybe that route doesn't work anyway. I also made Wailmer learn a move by level up (Bounce at level 45) before the evolution west of Mossdeep. Sadly that didn't work either.

Someone said this works with Carvanha. I know an NPC implied surfing with it is different, I've yet to Surf with Carvanha though.

Thank you Aeriixion for the cute sprite above! :) Roelof also made different variations of the sprite (which I animated).

Give love, receive love, repeat. But in order to love others you must first love yourself unconditionally, even if it means abandoning pressure from projects or taking time off work and empathise with the self as you are your own best friend. The key often is simply to follow your heart, your urges and have faith they are valid; use them to do what you want to do as long as it doesn't harm anyone, and/or sympathise and respect it as we all have bad days (even the prettiest rose has thorns but is still beautiful).
