|I'm sure you know how to make Poffins
Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. Just spin the control sticks in
the direction the screen tells you. Listen to the game and you'll make
high-level Poffins in no time! With a tip like that, you probably think
there's no reason for this page to exist. But...
|Following the on-screen prompts will
only slow you down and lead to the creation of burnt up, low-level
Poffins. And unless you're super fast and know when to avoid overflows
and burns, you'll find yourself with a heap of low-level (Foul)
Poffins. So, that's it. Just hope you'll create a Poffin with actual flavor or start relying on
Foul Poffins to raise your Pokémon's
|What if I told you there was a way to
score a better baking time AND
better Poffins? For this article, I'll show you that this is one of
those moments in life where breaking the rules might be your only
chance of success. (Or survival...)

stiring in the direction your currently stiring in.

control sticks if one of your thumbs gets tired.)

|I only came up with this trick since I

for the original Switch are completely broken control-wise.)
|After I figured out this trick, I
Platinum Version to see if the same thing could be used with the
original titles. And, it did.
|This trick blew my mind when I first
performed it a few weeks ago. I've been baking Poffins ever since 2014
and I always thought that if you didn't follow the directions
on-screen, something bad would've happened to them. But now
that I'm more older and know better, I'll just stick to doing
things my way instead of being given false
advice from a video game.
