Generation VI friendship evolution glitch
« on: April 05, 2015, 05:32:42 pm »
From here.

Apparently, some people who transferred Pokémon that can evolve via happiness from one Generation VI game to another using Pokémon Bank were never able to get them to evolve, even when they were at maximum happiness.

However, PokeMaster99999 doesn't rule out that this may have been a glitch that was patched out in a later revision of the Generation VI games.

I may have some Pokémon in Omega Ruby from X that can evolve by happiness that I've transferred already. Since on one of my Nintendo 3DSes Omega Ruby is still on version 1.0, I could see if in version 1.0 a Pokémon can't evolve by happiness, and if it can on version 1.3.

Though I know close to nothing about how Generation VI works, I do know that there is a new part of the Pokémon data structure that stores the latest OT (not the original OT) of a Pokémon. Perhaps, food for thought there is/was a bug in Pokémon Bank where that isn't updated when you transfer a Pokémon to another game and that is responsible?

Hi! I identify as female.  She/her pronouns, please.

Online I most often use the username Torchickens or Chickasaurus.

Ah.. koucha ga oishii ♪

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

If you like, please contact me by private message here on the forums as I no longer check other places very often.


I like to collect interesting video games. ^_^

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).

...No friendship evolution from a transfered pokemon? :( That's just sad. And also an interesting little flaw.
I'm not here to annoy; i'm here to have fun. I care about others feelings though and if I end up overdoing anything I am sorry for it.

Hiyo! ^_^ I am Jirachu da Millenium Pikachu...But you can call me Jchu. :D

I'm a fangirl type and have a major crush on Korrina from pokemon x and y. Yep, she's a girl, i know :U WE'VE GOT NOTHING TO HIDE.

I kinda wanna get into glitches again.

Korrina help's me accept my girlyness more o.o

I'm very strange and bazare but just wanna be accepted for it :)
