Serious Glitch in Pokemon Mystery Dungeon DX

On March 12th, 2020, Pokemon released an official announcement about a glitch in the game Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX that caused players to get errors and become unable to continue playing the game.

Currently, there has been no announcement made from the Official American or European Pokemon Twitter accounts, but it is believed that the bug can occur on all versions of the game.

The original Japanese Tweet.

What Kind of Glitch is it?

How Does it Happen?

For the glitch to occur, you have to be in a Dungeon where your Starter and Partner are required and have a third Party member with you. If both your Starter and Partner dies and you then remove the last Pokemon from the Team, the glitch will happen. This can either be done through the menu or when recruiting enemy Pokemon, so look out for both.

What does the Glitch Do?

It gives you an error that makes you unable to continue playing,and the game's auto-save feature means that rebooting has no effect on it. You will simply get the error again when you start the game.

How to Fix

For Players Who Already Have the Glitch

A patch will be released to fix the issue, so you will have to download that to fix it.

Your Progress Will be Safe

According to the announcement, your Items and Money won't be lost as a result of the bug, so there should be no lasting effect on your game!

How to Avoid the Glitch

Just avoid removing the third Pokemon from your Party and the error won't occur.

Patch Release

The original announcement has been updated to state that a patch is scheduled for release March 18th, 4:30 AM (EST). This is still just a planned release, but hopefully there won't be any issues.
