Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon – Ver. 1.1

  • Release date: December 13th (North America) / December 14th (Europe, Japan)
  • File size: 539 blocks or 67.35MB
  • Patch notes:
  • An issue where the game would occasionally freeze during a cutscene immediately after selecting Litten to be your first Pokémon partner during the game’s prologue and thus prevent further progress has been fixed.
  • An issue where the move Wide Guard would not behave properly in relation to some Z-Moves has been fixed.
  • An issue where the move Ion Deluge would not behave properly has been fixed.
  • An issue where a learned move would be forgotten if you used BP in places like Mantine Surf Spot or the Battle Tree to learn a move has been fixed.
  • List of changes:

Fixes the following bugs:

  • On rare occasions at the beginning of the game, if you choose Litten as your first partner Pokémon, the game stops right after the cutscene and prevents you from proceeding.
  • The Wide Guard move doesn’t work correctly against some Z-Moves.
  • The Ion Deluge move doesn’t work correctly.
  • When a Pokémon learns moves using BP at Mantine Surf Spots or Battle Tree, it will sometimes automatically forget moves it already knows.
  • Additional notes: more details and official patch notes coming soon. You will not be able to play or share Battle Videos recorded with the launch version of the game if you install this update. The update is required in order to keep using the online features of the game.
