Pokemon BDSP has wreaked havoc on the snow point gym

If you have played Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl Since its launch, you may have come or even passed Snowpoint Gym by now. This is an Ice-style gym led by Candice, who randomly decides to be a Candfighting-psychologist with a rogue Medicham on her team. Months ago, I wrote about How Candice is the trainer I look forward to the most when fighting in BDSP. She’s the best Gen 4 gym leader, though Crasher Wake is the only serious competition there, and she has a great gym. Not only does it have a great design, it also fits perfectly with the 3D chibi glow that is sure to appear with the BDSP. Sure it will. Sure. The right?


If you’ve actually been to Snowpoint, you’ll know that this is not the case at all. My boy was massacred. You may have seen that there is a bug in the gym. I know Pokemon Fans will be astounded to learn that a bug has escaped the butterfly net of another pristine launch, but I promise it’s true. This bug allows you to skip the complicated puzzle completely – normally you need to slide around Snowpoint Gym on icy tiles, use snowballs to block your way, take strategic routes to finally reach Candice while fighting with her underlings as you take a trip around the gym. In BDSP you don’t need to bother.

This, as always, causes you to miss Candice’s steps by a single brick, forcing you to slide and slide a long way back to where you started. This, make no mistake, is part of the genius of the gym – you start practically from the end, which is why it’s so frustrating having to go through a long and complicated math journey around the rest of the gym. With the bug, you just spam the diagonal direction button and watch your chibi avatar stumble up the stairs several times before finally jumping up, skipping the whole thing.

You might think, as a fully paid member of the Snowpoint Gym Is Great fanclub, I would be furious at the idea. An exploit that lets you bypass one of the best gyms in Pokemon history? Blasphemy! Only, I don’t. You have my full support. Use this exploit – I insist. This is not Snowpoint Gym. This is a misery. It was a Snowpoint zombie, moving around while its icy skin peeled off its frozen bones. I’ve never been a fan of the chibi aesthetic since it was first revealed, but I’ve always hoped that Snowpoint would be able to justify it. As a physics puzzle that you solve by sliding your avatar around like a bending stone, it seems to fit this art style better than Cyrus. Unfortunately, it’s all bullshit.


Let’s say you don’t use mining, and instead, like a cup, decide to waste your time sliding around the iceberg. You’ll see the whole thing exactly like you did in 2006. I don’t mean the same solution, I mean everything about the gym is the same. It looks the same, it has everything in the same place… well they might not have redone it at all. I’m all for faithful, but limited remakes. See how Let’s Go reinvented Sabrina’s gym. It’s the same, but it’s completely different and modernized. Snowpoint is the best piece of equipment you can find at a gym back in 2006. It has some details, it has an innovative design, it uses Pokemon mechanics, and if you take a glance at it, bit, you can see what it means. Gyms are always better in anime, but this is an attempt to capture the creativity and scope that anime has to offer. Roark’s gym at the start of BDSP was still just a cave with a wooden bridge, but that was all it was. Snowpoint was supposed to be an evil ice lair, and instead there were only four people standing around in the snow. It has the look of 2006, but it doesn’t have the feel of 2006.



Snowpoint is the best gym Gen 4 and the black horse in the race for the best gym ever. Now it’s just a big room with a bit of snow and with a simple trick you don’t even need to bother with the snow. Take it from me, a longtime Snowpoint fan – please use the exploit and get out of here as fast as you can.
