Nintendo apologises for poor Pokémon performance as patch 1.1 is released

The Pokémon games – and Game Freak – have not been known for their technical prowess, but even so, Pokémon Scarlet and Violet have been especially unstable, with terrible pop-in, poor performance, and a litany of bugs. Fortunately, the team seems committed to fixing the game, with patch 1.1 addressing some of the issues.

Available right now to download, patch 1.1.0 for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet brings with it a small yet substantial selection of fixes to the game, namely:

  • Season 1 of Ranked Battles will kick off, allowing you to enjoy Ranked Battles through the Battle Stadium.
  • An issue has been fixed that caused the music to not play correctly during the battles with the Elite Four and the Top Champion in the Victory Road path.
  • Other select bug fixes have been made.

Alongside the patch notes, Nintendo released a short statement apologising to players for the current state of the game, saying “We are aware that players may encounter issues that affect the games' performance. Our goal is always to give players a positive experience with our games, and we apologize for the inconvenience. We take the feedback from players seriously and are working on improvements to the games.”

While the game is a long way from being fixed, update 1.1 seems to have helped with alleviating some of the slowdown present in Scarlet and Violet. Hopefully this is just the beginning of the game’s redemption story.
