Despite receiving multiple Day One patches, players are still finding numerous bugs and glitches in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.
One of the more interesting bugs is one that allows players to use Surf on land when certain conditions are met. As documented by @eclipse_tt on Twitter, exploiting this bug in a specific area can allow players to reach the Flower Paradise, where the Mythical Pokemon Shaymin can be found. This island currently cannot be reached normally in the game, as it requires a special Event Item that has yet to be distributed.
You can watch a clip from Youtuber Travier demonstrating how to pull this off below, along with explanations from eclipse on how the glitch works. Be warned however, as these could be considered spoilers for unreleased content:

After you are in the process, Saving & Resetting your game while in a specific map point with a different height level (like stairs) will get you to that level

At the time of this writing, it is unknown whether this glitch will eventually be fixed in future patches for the game.
What do you think? Let us know in the comments.
[Update]: As of the Version 1.1.2 update, the glitch that allows players to access Shaymin early reportedly no longer works.
