Feature Adjustments

  • Link Battles
    • Fixed a bug in Link Battles where selecting Swap in just before the selection timer reached zero could fail to switch in the selected Pokemon and subsequently cause switching — and the battle itself — to act abnormally.
    • Fixed a bug in Link Battles where once the remaining time for the battle was under one minute, it would no longer be displayed where it was supposed to.
    • Fixed a bug that occurred in Link Battles where, depending on the move being used at the time a Pokemon fainted, the amount of time a Trainer received to select their next Pokemon was reduced.
  • Battles
    • Fixed a bug where the Cud Chew Ability would trigger again once every two turns after it triggered the first time, contrary to what is written in the Ability description.
    • Fixed a bug that occurred when Zoroark Terastallized while using its Illusion Ability to disguise itself as another Pokemon. On the Check Status screen, the Terastallized Zoroark’s type would display as the original type of the Pokemon it had disguised itself as, rather than Zoroark’s Tera Type.
    • Fixed a bug that occurred when Zoroark used its Illusion Ability to disguise itself as another Pokemon that had already Terastallized. This bug caused Zoroark’s type on the Check Status screen to incorrectly display as the Tera Type of the Pokemon Zoroark had disguised itself as.
    • Fixed a bug in Double Battles with moves that cause stat changes for the Pokemon using the moves. This bug caused the stat changes to incorrectly happen twice if the user hit two opposing Pokemon with the move while an opposing Pokemon was behind a Substitute.
  • Pokemon GO Connectivity
    • Fixed the main issue causing the game to crash on the screen used to pair with a Pokemon GO account.
  • Other
    • Fixed a bug affecting Trainers who received Hisuian Zoroark from the Mystery Gift screen as a special early-purchase bonus for The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero for Pokemon Scarlet or Pokemon Violet without first having seen Zoroark in their game. This bug caused Zoroark to be incorrectly displayed as registered in these Trainers’ Pokédexes.
    • Other select bug fixes have been implemented.
