The Santalune Gym tent glitch is a natural glitch in Pokémon X and Y.

The glitch occurs prior to defeating Viola, and involves the back wall of a tent not showing as if Viola was defeated, revealing the character, even though it would normally show before she is defeated.


  • Go to the tent and stand in the back-left corner.
  • Alternate between moving between this spot and one-tile south
  • The top of the tent at the top will now become transparent
