Pokemon Scarlet and Violet update out now (version 2.0.2), patch notes
Original (9/20): A new update is being planned for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, which will bring the games up to version 2.0.2. This is expected to go live in October. While relatively minor, the update will address a couple of bugs with the game that may hinder progression and interaction with Pokemon Home.
Full details can be found below.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet update version 2.0.2 patch notes
- Under certain conditions, victories against the NPC Trainers scattered across the game world may not have been recorded. As a result, the rewards players could earn by winning a certain number of battles — such as from Pokémon League representatives in the Paldea region or Ogre Clan members in the land of Kitakami — were not obtainable. This bug has been fixed, so players who experienced this issue can now challenge affected NPC Trainers again to record their victories and subsequently receive any eligible rewards.
- It was not previously possible to transfer certain special Pokémon to Pokémon Scarlet or Pokémon Violet via Pokémon Home if those Pokémon were brought into Pokémon HOME from Pokémon GO, even if a Pokémon of the same species had already been obtained in Pokémon Scarlet or Pokémon Violet prior to version 1.3.2. This bug has been fixed, and the issue has been resolved.
- Other select bug fixes have been implemented.
Original (10/11): The patch is live for all players. Nintendo has also now shared the official patch notes, which we’ve swapped in above.
