Rumor: Pokemon Sword/Shield full game download causing SD Card corruption

Posted on November 15, 2019 by in Rumors, Switch

Players are reporting issues with a rather unfortunate problem: The digital release of Pokemon Sword and Shield seems to be corrupting SD card data when the game crashes. So far, it seems that any crash in the game could lead to the issue. While save files for games are stored on the Switch’s hardware, this could result in players needing to reformat their cards and redownload all of their games. Nintendo has not released any statement in regards to the problem, and there may not be enough data to really pinpoint the cause just yet.
