Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

The Version 1.3.1 patch for Pokémon Scarlet & Violet is now live. This patch includes a variety of bug fixes and changes, specifically a fix to an issue that occured with the invite-only online competitions that were used by Japan and South Korea to determine entry to their National Championships two weeks ago, ahead of the repeat tournament this weekend. This issue prevented players from seeing their rating and exiting out of the competition between battles
We're currently cataloguing any changes to be sure to keep checking back
