Update: Though it wasn’t mentioned in Nintendo’s patch notes, the update also addresses issues relating to hacked Pokemon. Read more about the situation here.


Following the previous update for Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield in January, both games have been updated again. The latest patch is version 1.1.1.

If you were looking for something major this time around, you’ll unfortunately be disappointed. Nintendo says of today’s update: “Fixed several issues to improve gameplay experience.”

Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield are getting their first DLC, The Isle of Armor, in June as part of the Expansion Pass. The Crown of Tundra will follow this fall.
