So, in Gauntlet Mode, I was going through with my 5 pokemon, and for some reason, not one of the trainers stopped me on my way to James. I just walked all the way to him and began the battle (which i nearly won, I might add, Garchomp had about 10 HP). In fact, as I'm typing this, the glitch has happened again. All the way to James without a single battle. The pokemon I'm using, in order, are Absol, Glaceon, Magnezone, Volbeat, and Mismagius. I'm not sure what could be causing this glitch, but considering that it has happened twice in a row, it might be an issue, as it cheats the Gauntlet Mode and allows for the player to take their time battling James. If you need any more information, let me know.

No, it is not the same each time. Perhaps the issue is with the save file, and not the game itself? If so, it could be caused by something such as saving and quiting in the middle of Gauntlet Mode, which I have done. If not... I don't know.
