A strange bug in Pokemon Legends Arceus almost caused a player to miss a wild sleepmon despite the supposedly high catch rate.
Pokemon Legends Arceus has been a hit in the Pokemon community as it has worked to breathe new life into the mainline series.
With new mechanics and a new gameplay direction, Arceus has shown players what is possible with next-gen technology.
Along with these ambitious changes, the game also had many bugs. While some bugs were quite annoying for some trainers, there were also a number of unintentionally funny bugs.
Pokemon Legends Arceus player stunned by Snorlax
editor KingAster35 shared a hilariously weird video to the Pokemon Legends Arceus Reddit boards on April 7th, 2022.
In the video, the trainer can be seen approaching a sleeping Snorlax in order to capture the sleepy behemoth and take it on its journey.
KingAster35 prepares his position to make sure they take advantage of the unsuspecting and sleeping Pokemon’s higher catch rate, chooses a Gigaton Ball and throws the spherical cage at the Snorlax.
To their surprise, the creature immediately frees itself and stands in the water, almost as confused as everyone else watching the video.
The user assumes it was triggered by the light wind in the snowy area, since sleeping Pokemon are usually among the easiest encounters to turn into successful catches. But it might be a bug.
The mon seemed to defy the game’s catch mechanics and freed itself – something that should be seemingly impossible with a near-guaranteed catch rate.
Other community members were left in complete disbelief, as one person said, “I’ve never seen a ball fail on a sleeping Pokemon, just on a Gigaton Ball.”
Another saw the funny side: “This makes me laugh so much!”
While this error was caught by the Redditor, this appears to have been a one-time issue only. Fans will certainly hope so.
