Pokemon Scarlet and Violet's Next Patch Will Fix Some Major Bugs

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet's Next Patch Will Fix Some Major

The Pokemon Company has released some additional details about the upcoming Pokemon Scarlet and Violet patch, which will fix some major bug fixes involving Tera raids and other issues. Today, Pokemon Scarlet and Violet released the patch notes for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet's 1.2 Patch, which will be released in late February. The patch will not only make some major improvements to Tera Raids by properly showing a Tera Pokemon's HP and patching other bugs that would cause all Pokemon to simultaneously faint, it will also patch an issue in which bystanders appear during certain battles inside town, causing a major slowdown in the game.

Other fixes include a quirk involving Dondozo's Order Up, which would activate even when an opponent used Protect, and some corrections to how Pokemon are displayed in the Pokedex.

The upcoming patch will also add some additional functionality for Pokemon boxes, allowing players to change Pokemon nicknames, markings, held items from the Pokemon summary screen. Players will also be able to switch out moves and use TMs from the Pokemon Summary Page.

No specific date has been given for the new patch, but it will likely be released around Pokemon Day, which is conveniently in just 10 days. You can check out the full patch notes below:

Ver. 1.2.0 (Scheduled for end of February 2023)

Thank you for playing the Pok?mon series.

Below are some details regarding the version 1.2.0 update planned for release in late February 2023 for the Pok?mon Scarlet and Pok?mon Violet games.

With this update, we are planning to add features to Pok?mon Boxes and fix bugs that affect game progress, among other updates. We will continue to take your feedback very seriously and take measures to improve your gameplay experience.

Feature Adjustments

Additional functionality will be added for Pok?mon Boxes:

From a Pok?mon's summary, players will be able to change Pok?mon's nicknames, markings, held items, and mark- or Ribbon-related titles, as well as being able to reorder moves, have Pok?mon remember moves, have Pok?mon forget moves, and use TMs.

Players will be able to swap out held items by pressing the Y Button when in the Held Items view.

Players will be able to select All Boxes while moving Pok?mon or items in the Party and Boxes view and Held Items view.

When in the Battle Team view, Pok?mon in your Boxes that are assigned to a Battle Team will now have their icons displayed in a darker hue if those Pok?mon are members of the Battle Team that is currently being displayed.

The News screen will be displayed when you connect to the internet from the main menu, just as it is when connecting to the internet from the Pok? Portal.

Bug Fixes

Tera Raid Battles

A bug that can prevent an opposing Tera Pok?mon's HP gauge from properly reflecting damage done by certain moves (such as Play Rough) or certain status conditions may occur in Tera Raid Battles, resulting in the Tera Pok?mon's HP gauge fluctuating in an unusual manner. This will be fixed.

A bug that causes all Pok?mon on your side to faint at once despite their HP gauges indicating that they still have HP may occur in black crystal Tera Raid Battles against Pok?mon with the Mightiest Mark. This will be fixed.

A bug that can temporarily prevent a player from entering any input into the game may occur if a Tera Pok?mon takes certain actions while the player is choosing the target of their move. This will be fixed.

A bug that causes a communication error may occur when someone connecting to a Tera Raid Battle sees a different Pok?mon displayed on their screen than what the host sees. This will be fixed.

A bug may occur that causes players joining a Tera Raid Battle from the Tera Raid Battles search screen to be brought to a Tera Raid Battle against a Pok?mon different from the one they saw displayed. This will be fixed.

A bug that causes Tera Raid Battle crystals to not appear for a set amount of time may occur under certain circumstances. This will be fixed.


Type matchups against Pok?mon that have fainted will no longer appear when selecting a move or target during Double Battles.
A Zoroark that has Terastallized and is disguised as another Pok?mon via its Illusion Ability can be identified as a Zoroark by using the Check Target option. This is a bug and will be fixed.

When a Zoroark has Terastallized and is disguised as another Pok?mon via its Illusion Ability, the type matchups of moves are displayed based on the type of the Pok?mon that Zoroark is disguised as, rather than Zoroark's Tera Type. This is a bug and will be fixed.

The stats of a Dondozo with a Tatsugiri in its mouth will increase when Dondozo uses Order Up, even when the move should have been negated (for example, by an opponent using Protect). This is a bug and will be fixed.

If a Pok?mon Terastallizes after using Destiny Bond and then faints, the effects of Destiny Bond will fail to activate. This is a bug and will be fixed.


We will address an issue that can cause the game to forcibly close at certain locations. As a result of this fix, there may be a reduction of Pok?mon and people displayed in certain towns or in the wild.

When a Pok?mon that is not a part of the Paldea Pok?dex is obtained through a Link Trade, it is displayed as being registered to the Paldea Pok?dex. This is a bug and will be fixed.

Certain actions can cause the main character's expressions to not change until the game is closed and reopened. This will be fixed.

A bug occurred for some players after Ranked Battles Season 1, wherein visiting the Ranked Battles screen immediately after the season's results had been calculated caused a communication error right after these players received their rewards. Following this error, players were unable to participate in any further Ranked Battles. This will be fixed.

If a player has created several Battle Teams but does not use the Battle Team in the first slot for their Ranked Battles, they may not receive the Master Rank Ribbon after winning Ranked Battles in the Master Ball Tier. This will be fixed.

When a Pok?mon you caught comes back to you from another player through Link Trade, it may not listen to your commands in accordance with what is written in the profile app ("Pok?mon caught at Lv. XX or below will listen to your commands"). This will be fixed.

A bug is preventing the Pok?dex from displaying additional entries (such as entries for Shiny Pok?mon or Pok?mon that were received through Surprise Trade from players that play in a different language) for Pok?mon species that were already registered in the Pok?dex. This will be fixed.

Objects such as Pok? Balls may be displayed in certain locations of the field unintentionally. This will be fixed.

Passersby will no longer be displayed during certain battles that take place in towns during the main story.

Other select bug fixes will be implemented.
