Pokémon Scarlet and Violet have been available on the Nintendo Switch for a few weeks now, and since release there have been many concerns about the game’s technical issues. Although the ninth generation is a step in the right direction for the series with its new open-world gameplay, performance issues and bugs have made it quite difficult for some trainers to enjoy.
Now, in an update, Nintendo has announced a new update for Scarlet and Violet that will be released on December 1st (also later today). In addition to the full patch notes on the official support page, it also apologizes for the gameplay issues and mentions how it’s taking feedback from players and aiming to provide a “positive experience” for trainers around the world.
“We are aware that players may encounter issues that affect game performance. Our goal is always to provide players with a positive experience with our games, and we apologize for any inconvenience. We take player feedback seriously and work on game improvements.”
As for the update (version 1.1.0), players can look forward to Season 1 of the game’s Ranked Battles, a music fix, and “other select bug fixes” that aren’t detailed:
Ver. 1.1.0 (Release 1 December 2022)
– Season 1 of Ranked Battles will be launched, allowing you to enjoy Ranked Battles through Battle Stadium.
– See the in-game announcement for more details on Season 1 Ranked Battles.
– Fixed an issue that caused the music to not play correctly during battles with the elite four and the best champion on victory lane.
– Other selected bug fixes have been made.
In our own Pokémon Scarlet and Violet review here on Nintendo Life, we mentioned how excited we were for the future of the series, but we couldn’t overlook the wildly inconsistent performance and visuals issues. Since then, bugs and issues have been well documented. You can check out some of our previous stories:
