The Pokemon Company should be at the very top of its game right now.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are finally here after months of waiting, and the new generation of the world’s biggest franchise is proving to be going down a treat with long-term and brand-new fans alike. New beasties to befriend, new gyms to topple, and new rivalries to forge - what could possibly be so wrong about this? Well, maybe the fact that it doesn’t really work.

Performance issues have been a massive topic of debate with the new games, appearing as a new franchise low point in terms of glitches and bugs. It’s a pretty sad sight to behold, due to the reputation that Nintendo has built for quality - but the new games have shown that this reputation could be misplaced.

And now, finally, Nintendo has addressed the issues.

Nintendo has addressed Pokemon Scarlet And Violet’s Problems

It’s about damn time.

While players have been fighting to catch Pokemon at 5 frames per second, Nintendo has been pretty quiet about the problems plaguing the new games - and now, they’ve finally said something.

The brand new software update for the games has arrived, in hopes of fixing some of the problems that are making the game unplayable for some and simply frustrating for others. The update was publicised by the Nintendo of America Twitter account, which revealed the (admittedly pretty sparse) details of the new patch - and they’ve also commented on the issues themselves.

“We take the feedback from players seriously, and will continue to work on improvements to the games.” reads the end of the tweet. Well, it’s something.

Fans React To Nintendo’s Pokemon Bugs Statement

Fans have taken to the replies of the tweet to respond to Nintendo’s statement, with many claiming that the company doesn’t actually care about player feedback.

This update could fix the games entirely, or it could make them worse than ever. Only time will tell the direction Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are heading, but one thing’s for sure - it’s not looking good.
