Pokémon Scarlet & Violet is Nintendo’s first open-world mainline Pokémon game. And if other open-world games like Breath of the Wild have anything to say, it’s that there are plenty walls and cliffs to scale. Unless Koraidon and Miraidon have recovered enough to climb those cliffs, you can never climb them. That is, unless you take advantage of that weird “glitch” that lets you scale walls by walking backwards.
How to scale walls by walking backwards in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet
Your left joycon might suffer a bit, but you can climb cliffs by spinning Koraidon or Miraidon and climbing up the cliff rear wheel first. Here’s how you can do it.
- Approach the wall or cliff you want to climb. Really press the side the bike of your Koraidon or Miraidon on the incline.
- Press Koraidon or Miraidon B jump.
- While on the air, quickly flip Koraidon or Miraidon. You know you’ve made it when the rear wheel is pointing up.
- Spam B in this position while tilting the joycon backwards. If that doesn’t work, try tilting the joycon backwards only when Koraidon or Miraidon jump and flicking them forward once they land.

Important NOTE: This “bug” only works when the wall you are climbing is inclined. If the wall is too vertical, this method will not work.
It will take some practice, but you will be able to scale a lot of unclimbable walls early in the game. If you’re up for a personal challenge to speed up Pokémon Scarlet & Violet, feel free to try it yourself.
