A power outage rudely interrupted me playing, which wiped my progress, but I saved before I selected a pokémon - since I planned to copy it over to the other savefiles to quickly select the other pokémon that I would like to toy with (seriously - the game is awesome)
I was put back to where I had to select a pokémon, however Damien is gone and the professor is where she is in the attached screen.
- I got to select a pokémon and a fight with Damien happened, however the text of Damien wasn't from next to me, but in the bottom right corner.
- Fast forward to the battle being over, him winning or losing doesn't matter. Damien says his lines and leaves.
-- The professor doesn't pick up here and remains seated, as player I am locked in my position with no way of moving and the game won't progress from here.
