Pokémon Scarlet and Violet might be fun games but a mass of technical problems hugely overshadow their good qualities. It seems that players aren’t the only ones sick of all this, as Nintendo claims that they are working to fix these issues “as quickly as possible.”
The infamy of these bugs and glitches has grown quite a bit, with numerous Twitter and Reddit posts dedicated to them. While these games have their defenders, it’s clear that these issues aren’t made up or overexaggerated.
No matter how people feel, it’s clear that a patch is needed to fix the current reputation of both Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. Hopefully, something is done soon, as Pokémon fans really want to enjoy these games for what they are.
On the Pokémon subreddit, user NikoEatsPancakes claims to have received an email from Nintendo that says they are working to resolve these issues. Admittedly, no screenshot of the email was shown, but when you consider how the company is refunding these games, it’s believable.
"Regarding the trouble you are having with Pokemon Violet, I wanted to let you know that we are working as quickly as possible to resolve it,” claims the Nintendo email. “Once the issue is resolved we will send you another email to let you know. Please note that this may take several weeks. Your patience is appreciated."
Apparently, the email came after a lengthy discussion with someone from Nintendo support. Of course, many cynical fans feel this is just a fluff response from the company and they might not be wrong. Fans will have to wait and see if anything comes to fruition after this.
Right now, fans who just want to play Pokémon Scarlet and Violet despite the issues can pick them up now on Nintendo Switch. Those that want a less buggy game with similar concepts should give Pokémon Legends: Arceus a chance.
