Small evolution visual error
« on: December 28, 2016, 01:32:09 am »
Not really a big glitch or anything, but I thought it was a little interesting.

In Sun and Moon, when evolving a Pokemon, the model of the evolved Pokemon appears near the top-left corner of the screen for a split second before disappearing. At the very least, this has happened to me when evolving Pichu into Pikachu. If I had to guess, I'd say that the model loads in while the Pokemon is evolving, but appears for a very small period of time before it moves off-screen?

I'll see if I can get a picture of it soon. Has this happened to any of you guys?

EDIT: Ok, here's a kind of crappy picture. I took a video too, but there's a glare of my face in it despite all of my attempts not to catch that, ack

I have definitely noticed a flashing model in the top-left, but never bothered to record it or anything. I'd always assumed it was the evolving Pokemon itself being rendered on-screen before moving into position, but it's interesting to see that it's actually the evolved form of the Pokemon that's rendered in that area.

Nice find! :D

This is almost certainly unintended, but it's kinda cool to have if you're evolving Tyrogue, or maybe even Eevee. You can B-cancel if it's the wrong one.
