You can climb walls in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet by…going backwards? – Effinate Games


The challenge of breaking Pokémon Scarlet and Violet knows no bounds. The latest mainline games in the Pokémon series are a mix of bugs and lack of polish, with large amounts of bugs like one that allows you to move faster after connecting two controllers. Now there is a bug that allows you to scale walls. The exciting opportunity to reach unexpected places is here. It might take some practice, but you can scale walls with your turn with Pokémon by simply turning around and jumping backwards.

As demonstrated by Twitter user @ZuilleTheWitch, the player uses their Pokémon turn to climb a large cliff you normally can’t climb. As they struggle to scale the rock formation by jumping on it, everything changes when they turn around and jump back onto the slope. This probably won’t work on all surfaces, as the wall they climbed looked a bit flatter than usual (they were able to make the ground bounce forward), there’s still an exciting possibility out of bounds with this new trick.

Unmentioned in this post is whether or not this trick will work with Pokémon Violet owners who have another riding Pokémon. I bet it probably works, but since the two Pokémon are different, you never know. Regardless, people are starting to crack the already broken Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, and hopefully running as fast as Sonic and becoming a world-class mountain climber is just the beginning.

The sheer amount of bugs in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, whether beneficial to players or not, has caused an uproar in the community. An extra amount of performance issues and you’ve got a few games fans have noted, they are the worst received in the franchise. There’s still plenty of fun to be had in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, but Game Freak might want to bring out the repair tools.
