To have it happen to you on your Bonsai could be written off as a fluke. To have it happen to you again on your Pico is looking much more like a pattern.
For what it is worth, I’ve been constantly farming pet fragments. The vast majority of my rebirth attempts end in failure now (as my pets have more stars), and most of my pets are immediately re-leveled after they fail (the 10 I use in the arena). I think I would notice if this happened to me. And would definitely notice if it kept happening.
So, I’m curious. How often does this seem to happen to you? Just the two times or do you suspect even more times but just aren’t sure?
@Marspark, this seems like a pretty good theory. Might want to look into it.
P.S. The item duplication bug never affected me either. Never got a duplicate, although I steered clear of inventory changes entirely once there seemed to be a widespread problem.
When the duplication happens, is it after you’ve left the game and come back? If so, it could be a sign that your game was not fully saved and you are replaying the same thing over again. Might also explain why I don’t see it, since I manually save a lot, especially before quitting the game. Just a thought.
