Duplicate all the cards you need with this Pokémon Scarlet & Violet glitch

POKÉMON Scarlet and Violet is well known by now for its technical issues, but not all of them are a hindrance.

The glitch that helps players change the date and time and reset their raids is already well known, but there’s another helpful one.

This one allows players to duplicate rare items such as Bottle Caps which boost your stats, and Herba Mystica, which can help you catch shiny Pokémon.

Here’s how to duplicate rare items in Pokémon Escarlate e Violeta.

Pokémon Escarlate & Tolet: How to perform the item duplication glitch

Before performing the glitch, you need to have finished the game completely past where the credit roll.

You will also need some empty slots to place Pokémon in Box 1 in the Boxes menu.

Koraidon or Miraidon also need to be an active member of your team which you can do by switching it to Battle Form in the Pokémon menu.

Once you are ready, you can follow these steps to clone items:

  • Give Koraidon or Miraidon the item you want to clone.
  • Press the + button to ride Koraidon or Miraidon and then again to dismount.
  • Change Koraidon or Miraidon back to Battle Form.
  • Catch a wild Pokémon and add it to your active team, selecting Koraidon’s or Miraidon’s spot.
  • Press the A and then B button quickly one after the other, almost at the same time
  • In the ensuing dialogue, decide to store the item in the bag.
  • Press the + button to ride Koraidon or Miraidon and then again to dismount.
  • Open Box 1 and replace the freshly caught Pokémon with the now-cloned version of Koraidon or Miraidon.
  • Give the cloned Koraidon or Miraidon the item you want to duplicate.
  • Select the cloned Koraidon or Miraidon in your team overview and transform it to the Riding Form.
  • Open Box 1 again and press the X button twice to return to Team 1.
  • Press the L button to open the box with Koraidon or Miraidon holding the cloned item.
  • Select the Pokémon and choose the option to put the item away.
  • Repeat steps 8 Através dos 13 to continue cloning the held item.

This glitch not only clones the item but the Pokémon holding it, which can give you multiple versions of the rare legendaries to trade with others.

You can easily get rid of the excess clones of the Legendary Pokémon by packing five of them into your team and filling the sixth slot with a regular monster.

Then switch from the Riding Form to the Battle Form. Each switch should clear one of the clones.

There are other methods for cloning items, but this is currently the fastest method we know of.

It is likely that the glitch will be fixed along with various bug fixes that are coming, so if you want to continue doing this, turn off automatic updates in your Switch menu.
