Gamers are mad at the latest Pokémon Scarlet and Violet update

THE LATEST Pokémon Scarlet and Violet update is out now, and while it does fix a few key bugs, Pokémon fans are mad at some changes the update made. 

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet version 1.3.0 brought with it a number of bug fixes, with one of the big fixes being the egg raid glitch.

This was a glitch introduced alongside the previous patch, which added two new Paradox Pokémon to the game. 

Unfortunately, some players who were playing at the time of the patch ended up with unhatchable eggs instead of the new Pokémon, Walking Wake and Iron Leaves. 

Eggs can’t be removed from the player’s Pokémon storage, and these eggs can’t be hatched, so players were stuck with them. 

To make things worse, Walking Wake and Iron Leaves were only catchable once, so players who ended up with bad eggs were unable to obtain them at all. 

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet version 1.3.0 will allow players with bad eggs to catch the new Pokémon again, but it reportedly doesn’t remove the eggs from the player’s inventory. 

Players are also upset at a bug being fixed that was actually helpful for some Pokémon Scarlet and Violet fans. 

After the announcement of the upcoming Pokémon Scarlet and Violet DLC, players who preordered the new content were able to receive a Hisuian variant Zoroark. 

If players hadn’t caught a regular Zoroark previously in their game, the Pokémon would be registered in the Pokédex. 

According to The Pokémon Company, this was a bug, and Hisuian Zoroak should not have registered Zoroark at all in the Pokédex. 

This has upset a number of players who were working towards finishing their Pokédex in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, as they now have to go find a rare Zoroark in the wild. 

Even players who had previously completed their Pokédex and received rewards for it are reporting that their dex is now marked as incomplete. 

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet have been plagued with bugs and performance issues since their release on the Nintendo Switch in November last year. 

While patches like this one have helped, there are still a number of issues that have yet to go unfixed, like a fatal save data glitch that has wiped the save files of a number of players.
