With a new update having been made available for Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet, the Switch games are now at version 1.3.1.

The update comes with a variety of bug fixes and changes. Specifically, an issue has been addressed with the invite-only online competitions that were used by Japan and South Korea to determine entry to their National Championships two weeks ago, ahead of the repeat tournament this weekend.

For a limited time, Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet players can partake in a Gold Bottle Cap distribution.

Gold Bottle Caps are notable since they can maximize all six of a Pokemon’s IV stats. They are pretty rare and can normally only be obtained by making a purchase from the Auction House or buy earning it through the Academy Ace Tournament.
