Pokemon Sun and Moon Updated to Fix Online Glitches

R.I.P. Any Saved Battle Videos, Though.

on January 11, 2017 2:25 PM

Remember when two major moves were removed from Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon to prevent crashing? Good news — a new update pushed by Game Freak to the wildly popular Pokemon title has remedied the situation; both Z-Parting Shot and Z-Memento are available for use in online battles.

Of course, anything good comes mixed with a bit of bad news. The 296 block update will make any previous saved battle videos unwatchable.

In order to take advantage of the new moves (or online features), players need to update their game via the eShop. Also, both Z-Parting Shot and Z-Memento will be disabled until January 17, 2017 when Season 2 of Battle Spot begins.

Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon is now available exclusively on Nintendo 3DS; DualShockers gave the game a 9.0 saying the latest iteration is “a relaxing adventure away from a tried-and-true formula that is as rewarding as ever.”
