Tinfoil hat time:
Every so often I get kicked out of a pet battle, and you can call me paranoid, but I'm beginning to wonder if the issues are related. I've been fighting Oily Slimelings: once in 20-40 battles, I will land the killing blow on the 3rd pet, and then the pet battle will abruptly end. My pets don't line up in the middle like they usually do, and they don't get experience--I just get sent to the regular UI. Normally I would just shrug it off, as pet battles are not exactly bug-free. However, it's kicking me out of the battle at exactly the time that I would receive a stone, if I was going to receive one. So, maybe this is a case of frustration+coincidence=conspiracy. But I'm curious if anybody else is getting kicked out of fights like this, and whether anybody notices it happening with particular wild pets.
This happens to me quite frequently (several times a day), but I have found that my pets are registering the xp for these battles even though no xp system message appears.
I'm not sure whether this has any effect on stones dropping, as I don't know what it looks like when stones drop from wild pet battles. Ok, I'm exaggerating... I've gotten 2 stones... while grinding 150+ pets to 25. If it weren't Christmas, I would tell you all that I hate you for being able to grind stones.
