Pokemon Scarlet and Violet finally right a 16-year-old wrong from Diamond and Pearl

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet feature a throwback to a 16-year-old Diamond and Pearl meme fans have been salty about since it first tripped them up.

Back in the day, heading to Snowpoint City in Diamond or Pearl meant potentially stumbling across an NPC called Mindy. She’s willing to trade you a Haunter for a Medicham, which feels like a dang good deal as the Ghost-type should evolve into Gengar once traded, right? Well, that’s typically the case, but not here, as Mindy’s Haunter is holding an item that prevents them from evolving. What’s worse, she openly (opens in new tab) pours salt in the wound as you stand there doing your best Psyduck impersonation.
