After getting the leather cap from Karis I was just tapping the screen randomly while checking Matthew's base stats. Except, when I exited the status screen, the character select part, I ended up in a battle with a dim dragon. After dying I just ended back at Isaac's house. Here is a link to what images I could get:
Does anyone have an idea how this happened?

Edit: Just happened again, before talking to Karis, when I closed the menu after equipping the padded gloves. It seems to happen randomly when closing the menu.

Edit 2: Seems to also happen when selecting a menu option. I pressed 'A' on the logbook option and I got sent into another dim dragon battle. Might be happening more often for me since it's being played from a flashcard on a 3ds.

That's cool.

Not sure... unless some code got loaded over top of old code or something.... if you can replicate it and explain how it can be replicated, I might could look into it, though.

Would have been nice to know where you would have been if you had successfully defeated that enemy.  At least to see if this could be useful for the speed-running community or not. (Most likely would have returned to where you were?)

@Isaac's house = Might be based on what is stored as map and door number for when you're defeated... which was probably set way before the glitch.. so might not be related to the glitch.  I'm assuming you got the Leather Cap before Patcher's Place? - Yep. Since it's just Matthew there.

I noticed some glitching through emulating on Desmume.. (Not sure if same happens on real handheld.)

Such as when you enter battle and see the PC table on the top screen... there can be an awful palette that's used. (Makes it look ugly.) - I suspect it is the same palette as the screen that shows djinn and has a background for the elements. But I did not verify. - Although, this is pretty rare glitch, so I'm not sure how it is replicated.)

Also, there are places you can get stuck in the collision... (See attachment, although, not sure if you need to pause or not.)

(I use to have the screens above/below, until I realized side-by-side is probably better when zoomed in. :P)

Remember kids! Before you go on that interview, remember to wash your hands in teawater! *Coughs on hand* (Excuse me, I just coughed up a little teawater, so they're still clean!) You wouldn't want that hiring manager to be unimpressed.

May the force be with you!
Shoo! Why does it smell in here?
Maybe that's the wrong kind of force. *smirk*

Fox: I saw we need an event this April Fools/Easter... because two holidays are in one, why would we not want to miss having something special? (Unfortunately, there's no one here to make an event be successful.)

Fox: And since that's the case...  I have thought of another fun experiment idea. - What if we had an auction on who should run this site, and waited for 10 people to bid and also for a bare minimum of 24 hours. Who would bid the highest, and how much would that bid be? - The idea is more for lulz (Maybe for April Fools?), and a theory to get an idea of how much the site might be worth as well.

KyleRunner: "difficult thing about the army": I'm very good at taking orders, so I don't have issues with autority or discipline. The most difficult thing is to be away from my family sometimes. I lived an entire year away from my son, so I'd say that was the most hard part by far. Now it's great!

Fox: That's good to hear... just checking if there were any possibility of doubt. What would you say was your most difficult thing about the army?
February 18, 2018, 12:39:38 PM
KyleRunner: Well, it was a destiny kinda thing, but I was very happy when I decided to join. It was just like I thought it would be (not in the beginning, though). I'm very pleased with my decision.
February 17, 2018, 11:32:41 PM
Fox: That's awesome!  Trying to figure what question I want to ask Something about how you felt when you made the decision to do the army, and whether it was different than your expectations/etc.
February 17, 2018, 01:53:41 PM
KyleRunner: Wow... My english got rusty. Anyway... I'm in the army now. My life turned 180. But I think it was for the best.
February 16, 2018, 12:45:45 AM
Fox: Hm? So where does that make you today?
February 16, 2018, 12:06:38 AM
KyleRunner: Five years ago I could not even imagine where I am today. I hope it works well for you too!
February 12, 2018, 07:22:50 PM
Fox: 2018 - The year that I will probably be working a manufacturing job. xP What would I have thought, if I told myself this five years ago. Eh?

Fox: You referring to changing the PC/leader sprite to someone else? - I forgot to mention that you can do this using VBA's memory viewer. (Found under Tools.)
