What are some "Error traps to prevent impossible progress"? Sherkel (talk) 09:22, 11 November 2019 (-06)

I think there is one where if you try to release all your Pokémon and a HM move would be needed it comes back saying it missed you? Also the Yellow Safari Zone free entry addition is related. Pikasprey (link here) who you may have heard of specialises in the subject of making save files impossible (without glitches) a lot. There may be other prevention measures like the couple I mentioned. Hope that clears things up :), sorry I don't know much about the subject other than a couple cases. :( ^^; From Evie (Torchickens) ✿ 00:17, 12 November 2019 (-06)
Well, that may not be the easiest name to understand (I thought it meant "progress that should be impossible", instead of "being impossible to further progress"). I think "Error traps to prevent softlocks" may be a better name, although maybe people would understand the word "softlock" differently too. (I know that the word "softlock" is used in exactly this sense in video game randomizers, where a flaw in the randomizer logic and/or an unexpected sequence of player actions may cause a seed to become unwinnable.)
