Pokemon Sword/Shield

Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield have received a new update. Just a short while ago, Nintendo started the distribution of version 1.2.1.

Below are the official patch notes:

  • A bug in regards to the number of digits for password settings has been fixed.
    • In regards to the passwords that can be set for Y-Comm and Max Raid Battles, we fixed the bug where players could be matched with others whose passwords were not coinciding.
  • Other updated content
    • We fixed several other issues to improve game play experience.

Version 1.2.0 for Pokemon Sword/Shield arrived last month. It added The Isle of Armor as new DLC, brought along new Pokemon, extended Link Codes to 8-digits, and more. We have those patch notes here.

Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield are both available for Switch.
