Sometimes when I am walking (outside of a town, on the world map), my character will flash white.

Does this mean anything? Or is it just a graphical glitch somewhere?

It's those Djinns re-setting themselves. Looks like you've been putting them on quite the summoning routine.

Upon skovacs1's persuasion, I've added video documentation of this phenomenon:

After a bit of summoning, you'll notice at this interval that the Djinns are re-setting themselves.

Summoning quite a bit, so this seems likely. – Ash Apr 13 '12 at 22:30
There's no probably. It's Djinni recovering, same as the first two games. (It's even the same sound effect!) – Shinrai Apr 14 '12 at 2:24
Since it is Djinn recovering, is there anyway that Derpy Hooves could mark this as the correct answer and maybe @Krazer could improve the answer by making it more conclusive. It is correct, but is phrased like an uncertainty. I'd love to see some sources for this answer, but I can't find anything aside from gameplay vids where someone uses a djinn and incidentally shortly thereafter they flash (since this doesn't confirm the answer, it isn't a source). – skovacs1 Apr 26 '12 at 1:57
@skovacs1 generally asking the OP (me, in this case) to select an answer is not done - the OP is free to select the answer they feel is best. – Ash Apr 26 '12 at 4:54
@Shinrai this is the first Golden Sun game I ever played, so I didn't know that. Good to know :) – Ash Apr 26 '12 at 4:55
