Wild Red Card oversight
« on: April 30, 2017, 12:00:41 am »
In a wild Single Battle (including an SOS Battle as long as there is currently only one opponent), if a wild Pokémon holds a Red Card, the Red Card forces the player's Pokémon to flee rather than switch out when activated.

However, if the player only has one conscious Pokémon in their party, the Red Card will not activate. This makes sense for its effect to force a switch, but for forcing a Pokémon to flee I interpret this as a bug.

This bug occurs in Gen 5, 6, and 7.

The Red Card is kinda buggy, isn't it?

Does this glitch happen in previous generations?

Yeah, SnorlaxMonster said it occurs in Generations V and VI as well.

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).
