The first patch for Pokémon Sun & Moon is here!

Now available on the eShop, this patch brings the Generation VII games up to Version 1.1 and brings a few minor updates to Alola:

  • Fixes the Z-Memento and Z-Parting Shot Battle Spot glitch
  • Fixes the winner of a game if Rocky Helmet knocks the opponent out when you get knocked out first glitch
  • Fixes Pokémon not learning moves upon evolution

The patch is 296 blocks and is required for online play and to participate at official Pokémon events. On a related note, Battle Videos from Version 1.0 cannot be viewed in Version 1.1.

  • Deerlia

    Bout time they fixed this, but where is the Bank update, This deer is curious…

  • There’s one more less obvious (and almost only the dataminers can tell) fix: Battle Tree Roster.
    * The infamous Kommo-o with the illegal move “Shell Smash” loses it and it gets replaced by Draco Meteor.
    * A Hawlucha set was replaced by a Pidgeot set.

    • Chaos

      Shell Smash Kommo-o would have been a brilliant mixed sweeper.
      Why you do this Gamefreak.

      Here’s hoping it can still be thing at some point.

    Yay Kurusu back, but going to school be back at 10:00 lunch or 2-3

  • Prima-Azuril

    Not a very good update to be honest, there wasn’t even anything major or worthy to update for. If the Pkmn-Bank update came with it I’d be happy but what kind of bozo made this useless update?

    • SpectralSeraph

      They fixed glitches

      • Prima-Azuril

        Pff who cares about those irrelevant glitches Bank is more important

        • ŘÂĎ~ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง~ŘÂĎ

          It’s not irrelevant it legitimately ruined aspects of the game

          And was bad game design

          • Prima-Azuril

            Still at least add something other than bug fixes, like Pokemon Bank or a special event or something.

          • You clearly have no grasp on how long developing new content for agame takes

          • Prima-Azuril

            Apparently so as you’re clearly hating on me as you’re liking all the comments proving me wrong.

          • SpectralSeraph

            Do you realize how hard it is to code shit?

          • Prima-Azuril

            If they were able to allow Pokemon transfer from X/Y to ORas and reverse, surely it must be easy for make S/M compatible.

          • ŘÂĎ~ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง~ŘÂĎ

            Because they shouldn’t have to, it was a legitimate problem caused by the programming that was ruining the game

          • Prima-Azuril

            They should’ve at least fixed the Registration Failed problem.

          • ŘÂĎ~ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง~ŘÂĎ

            That’s not a glitch, that’s caused by the system itself

        • SpectralSeraph

          People who play the game, be thankful they actually cared to edit bugs that were ticking people off

          • ŘÂĎ~ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง~ŘÂĎ

            “But if it doesn’t effect meeee, it doesn’t matterrrr”

          • SpectralSeraph

            Omg XD
            No but seriously, the kids gotta get it, not everything important is tailored to him

        • BloodyRat EastGovnah

          you realize this fixes the game and makes it better

    • The Singular Kuppo

      Dude, after a game releases the first update will always most likely be glitch fixes

      • Prima-Azuril

        That sucks

        • ŘÂĎ~ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง~ŘÂĎ

          *That’s sensible

  • zess

    Well these fixes are boring 😧. At least as far as I’m concerned.

    • No bank, eh? That’s fair though. 🙂

      • zess

        Yeah that’s the big update I’m waiting for but this is good for everyone that battles. But also did anyone here experience the move level up bug? Looking back i might have but I’m not sure.

        • You mean for Kadabra? If so then yeah! Because I decided to use it in my first playthrough.

          Some other mons that evolve got both their “evo move” and “level-up move” at the same time when evolving, but Kadabra only gets Kinesis (the evo move) instead of both that and Confusion (the level-up move for level 16), making it as much of a dead weight as Abra until its gets Psybeam at a higher level or the player gets the Psychic TM for finishing the first visit to Aether Paradise.

  • SpectralSeraph

    Anyone up for a joke? I’ll start
    Smogon can tier

    • ŘÂĎ~ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง~ŘÂĎ

      Remember, these are far from the final tiers

      • SpectralSeraph

        Know what’s really funny? Salamence, who was UU ALL OF LAST GEN UNTIL THE LAST FEW MONTHS GOT BANNED BEFORE THAN KELDEO

        • temporario23

          Did you even read the reasoning behind their quickbans?

    • The Singular Kuppo

      They’ll get better soon (I hope)

      • SpectralSeraph

        I doubt it, smogon can’t tier, look at Araq and Gourgiest

    • Ziggy Fartdust

      Here’s another joke.
      Nintendo’s censorship.

      It’s funny because it’s awful.

    • Chaos

      Smogon tiering system has been on point for the last few years I’ve been playing.

  • Yu Narukami

    These patches are…a thing.
    I mean, they might help the people suffering from the glitches.

    • If there’s any glitches other than Z-Parting/Memento I heard it only affected people hacking/editing their saves, it can place their character outside the map.

  • Ziggy Fartdust

    Does anyone think Game Freak stopped basing the regions on Japan because they realized how hated Japan is worldwide?

  • Prima-Azuril

    Just forget what I said, as apparently it’s natural for the first update of each game to just be minor glitch fixes. Sorry about my ignorance, no need to up vote comments proving me wrong anymore.

  • Prima-Azuril

    @EastGovnah:disqus @spectralseraph:disqus @starstorm295:disqus OK I learned that it’s hard to code and that it’s the first update that’s always minor so let’s just forget it ok? I’m sorry. Besides, there’s also another troll and I shouldn’t put any more burdens. I’m going now, I can’t stand that hacker troll, he’s just an example of failed racist humans.

    • BloodyRat EastGovnah

      Prima no need to explain everytime if you need to go just go to cool off and come back

      • Prima-Azuril

        OK I’m sorry and I was being a bit ignorant and not thinking on how difficult it is, sorry. And I should, I can’t take that troll.

    • SpectralSeraph

      Chill breh, it’s fine. Pretend your an ice type and have four weaknesses

      • Prima-Azuril

        Okie and beisdes, it’s not like this is the only update, we still have 20 more days of January so this update is actually something to be thankful not be annoyed of. It’s still nice they’re doing a bit of bug fixing.

    • SpectralSeraph

      Good! Now for Keldeo, Togekiss, Victini, do I really need to continue?

      • ŘÂĎ~ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง~ŘÂĎ

        Togekiss and Victini were like low OU (Victini was BL) last Gen so them dropping really isn’t surprising

      • Chaos

        Togekiss and Victini probably aren’t exactly OU material anyway. Hell even Salamence was UU last Gen.

    • The Singular Kuppo

      Now they’re in BL?

      • ŘÂĎ~ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง~ŘÂĎ

        I think OU?

        • SpectralSeraph

          The meta is still cancerous af tho

          • ŘÂĎ~ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง~ŘÂĎ

            It needs to be for now

            So they can see what actually does belong in OU and what dust will settle when the storm ends

    • Chaos

      Mence was UU last gen as well.

  • Prima-Azuril

    Bye everyone,t taking a break but I understand how hard it is to code now, sorry about my ignorance.

    • BloodyRat EastGovnah

      stop saying sorry! its not a big deal!

      • Prima-Azuril

        OK then I’m going now just had to delete a few things.

  • SpectralSeraph

    (Books fall off a desk loudly)
    Me; (mutters) sounds like my life

  • SpectralSeraph

    “Hail
    Aurora veil is super neat, especially in this highly offensive meta.
    Blizzard spam keeps heavy pressure while jolly hailslash can clean up shop with a mop.”

    Apparently it is possible to associate hail with fire

    • ŘÂĎ~ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง~ŘÂĎ

      Yo new article

    • Alyssa Dunn

      hey i didn’t get that incineroar but a primarina

  • Claus H. Luíz

    I’m just mad that any saved replays can’t be viewed once the patch is downloaded. >:

  • zess

    Well my dog just ruined four days of hunting 😡 so now I’m gonna try soft resetting for something in poke pelago and start fresh tomorrow morning

  • towelgirl21

    Does this mean A-Marowak will learn Shadow Bone when it evolves from Cubone? I was pretty mad that I had to get almost to the League and find the Move Reminder before my Ghost Marowak could learn Shadow Bone.
