How to avoid Pokemon X  Y's save glitch
Nintendo has detailed the save glitch responsible for making Pokemon X / Y's controls unresponsive and has provided this handy chart as a short-term solution to the problem. Thankfully, unlike Pokemon, they can say more than their own name, so you won't be stuck deciphering a fix out of "Nintendo, Nintendo!"

If you wish to ever control your Pokemon again, avoid saving and ending your game anywhere within the pictured outer blue ring in Lumiose City.

For those of you unfortunate enough to have found out about this firsthand, the page describes a planned "application to recover saved game data" that will be made available on the eShop "as soon as possible."
