This can be resolved if the Trainer is able to add a Buddy from any of their existing Pokémon while the game is still responsive. However, if they are unable to do so, the game will eventually become unresponsive and lock the player into the “Do not trespass” or “Do not drive” warnings indefinitely.

  1. I used the kira eevee and received the network error and now I can not evolve my eevee into sylveon. It is acting as though i have already got the sylveon and can not use the name trick now.
