It turns out people have been reporting a massive bug found in their copies of Pokémon X and Y.

Insect Pokemon puns aside, the glitch is apparently rather serious and some players have reported their games being completely unplayable after the bug takes effect. When a player loads a file saved in Lumiose City the game freezes and becomes unsalvageable.

The glitch has been reported in both European and Japanese copies of the game, which may mean that the bug isn't relegated to a single region locked area of the game's release.
