How to instantly speed up your PokéPelago:
A glitch in Poké Pelago was discovered to complete ALL time-based activities when your 3DS clock rolls over from 31/01/2017 to 01/02/2017. (from last of January to first of February)
So this is how you do it:
- Go to Poke Pelago and start activities: Plant berries, search for treasure, train pokemon and/or put down eggs or pokemon in the hot springs.
- Save the game and go to the time settings on your 3DS. Set the date to 31/01/2017 and the time to 23:59.
- Exit the settings and restart your game. Wait for the clock to pass 00:00 and then go to Poke Pelago.
- All your activities are completed!
A video of the glitch performed can be found here.
This means you can put in 18 pokemon and level them up much faster than you would doing the Elite four! Complete 50-hour training sets in an instant - sweet! EV training can be done fast too, and entirely without spending your BP on the training bracelets.
You can also farm berries for clothing dyes and speed it up if you need/want the specific colors sooner than in two to three days!
And what’s best, you can repeat treasure hunt and hope for Golden Bottle Caps! (I haven’t gotten any in like a month so I’m not hopeful but that’s just my luck heh)
All other timed events in the game will halt fro a day, like Festival Plaza, berry trees etc. since you’re changing your 3DS clock, but it’s a small price you can choose to pay for speeding up your Poke Pelago.
