Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl are finally here, and generally people seem to be enjoying them… interesting bugs in the game that have been amusing players since its release last week – and one of them finally makes Team Galactic do what Team Rocket never could.

A clip from Reddit user u/mikeloud shows a Team Galactic Grunt “accidentally” stealing the player’s Ponyta, simply by removing it from the screen. The Ponyta, of course, is outside his Pokéball and uses the Amity Square feature that lets you track your Pokémon.

Fortunately, the Ponyta theft is not permanent. If your Pokémon gets stuck somewhere far away, they will teleport back to you. Fooled again, bad guys!

Did you experience this bug in the new Pokémon remakes? Or other interesting bugs that made you laugh? Let us know in the comments.
