More bug fixes are coming to Paldea in the Pokémon Scarlet and Violet 1.2 patch notes. Nintendo announced the list of changes on February 17 and the Serebii team have since translated them into English. We don’t have a specific date for this update just yet, but we do know that it’s coming in late February.
Although Serebii has said these patch notes do not include every bug fix or feature change coming in the update, it touches on some of the larger issues affecting battling, tera raids, and UI. Firstly, the Pokémon summary menu is gaining new functionality, including the ability to change Pokémon’s nicknames, markings, and held items from this menu, making the process much smoother.
Many a meme has come out of the strange behaviour of Pokémon NPCs in Scarlet & Violet, but this patch will fix many of the issues players have experienced. Certain areas of Paldea will display fewer NPCs to prevent bugs that forcibly closed the game, and passersby will no longer appear during certain battles that take place in towns during the main story. Hopefully this means no more pedestrians walking through your Pokémon!
