The lights are on
Pokémon X & Y players have reported issues when saving in certain areas of the game's Lumiose City, and Nintendo is preparing a patch for the game.
Nintendo wasn't able to offer a date for when the patch will be available, but it says it will be available soon. In the meantime, Nintendo is recommending that players DO NOT save in the areas highlighted in blue in the map of Lumiose City above.
Nintendo has sold more than four million copies of Pokémon X & Y since its launch. That's a lot of games that will need a patch.

Our TakeNintendo has a pretty stellar track-record when it comes to releasing bug-free games. It's a testament to their skill when we say that the appearance of this bug is a surprise. Hopefully the patch will be available soon.

It's a good thing that Nintendo is aware of this. Right now, every time i'm in Lumoise City in the game and want to save, I always go to some other town first just in case. Hopefully, this fix will release within the next few days or possibly a week.
Alright, good to know which areas are safe.
That's nice of them.
I guess I have what u call video game luck cuz I have never had a problem with any game or system. Ive had my 360 sense launch an it still running strong
I've just been avoiding anywhere outside in Lumiose City. If I really have to save, I make sure I'm inside a Pokémon Center. I hope they can fix this soon so people won't lose their saves.
Good to know they're fixing it. I haven't started playing yet but I'll be sure not to save in this city.
I've been avoiding Lumoise like the plague, except when I need to buy new clothes to make the Kanto starters Mega stones cheaper.
I personally haven't had a problem with this, but that's because I haven't tried to save in lumiose city. There's not really anything in there for me to go to anyway, besides the part where you have to meet the professor.
I have been saving numerous times in lumiose and haven't ran into the bug
This is good news, my girlfriend has been avoiding this city because of that bug... now she can continue with no worries.
This scared me because I saved in the cafe right after talking to the professor, but thankfully I loaded it and it's working fine.
You know games have come a long way when pokemon needs a patch. Great memories with Red and Blue.
