The Pokemon community lost it when a player discovered a Sword & Shield bug that proves regardless of where you are at on your journey, your mother is your number one fan. 

Pokemon saw the release of its Generation VIII title Sword & Shield in November, gathering incredible sales during its opening weekend, and rave reviews from both critics and fans.

The beloved RPG takes place in the Galar region, as trainers make their way through the League in hopes of unseating the undefeated champion Leon. However, one fan discovered a wholesome bug that makes you a winner regardless in your mother's eyes.

Wholesome Sword & Shield bug

Every Pokemon game begins similarly at home, as trainers living with their mom take off on an adventure to catch every Pokemon, and become the ultimate champion.

However, Twitter user 'TAHK0' posted a bug they ran into when returning home right before starting the final battle with Leon where the protagonist's mother thought they'd already won.

In the video attached to the tweet, the player goes home just before the match, and upon returning, the mother calls them the Champion, triggering dialogue typically reserved for the post-game.

The post generated hilarious reactions to the bug, with some cracking jokes about how mothers are always proud of their children, regardless of their actual success.

TAHK0 followed up their original post, finding the glitch incredibly wholesome too. "She just believes in me that’s all," they tweeted. As of the time of this article, the video has over 1.6k views.

While many found humor in the video, it led some players to ponder what "triggers" the mother to think that protagonist is the champion, as it was always assumed that you had to beat Leon. Of course it could just be a one off bug.

Despite being released less than a month ago, the latest Pokemon broke sales records, moving six million units in just three days on its release weekend, making it the fastest selling Switch game of all time.
While the game was initially dogged with controversy over its removal of the National Pokedex, it seems millions of players are enjoying exploring the Galar region, and finding new things to discover every day.
