The latest version of Pokémon Scarlet and Purple 2.0.1 after the DLC of The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero introduces a bug that crashes the game in its final boss. Here’s how to avoid it, waiting for a GameFreak patch.
Pokémon Scarlet and Purple has recently received its first DLC, The Turquoise Mask, the first part of The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero. Along with its release of paid DLC in early September, update 2.0.1 came out for Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Purple.
Some new features were indicated in the patch notes, such as blocking the minimap so that it is always north, telling a Pokémon that accompanies you on the field to stop and wait where it is, or improvements to the photo camera.
What he unfortunately also added was a bugwhich, as far as has been seen, only occurs in the final boss of the main story of Scarlet and Purple. For those who are going to play the DLC, they will have already overcome this battle, but for new buyers of Pokémon Scarlet and Purple it is a risk of game crash in certain situations right at the end.
As user Mattyoukhana discovered, this happens in the fight against Koraidon or Miraidon from the “Paradise Protection Protocol”, and it is common for it to happen to you if you have more than three Pokémon in the fight.
By moving through the menu to select Pokémon four, five, and six on your team, the game will crash.
The only way to prevent this from happening is to go into battle with only three Pokémon, or press “up” in the menu to select your team’s legendary, Koraidon or Miraidon depending on the version, to avoid going through those Pokémon.
Is Pokémon Scarlet and Purple DLC worth it?
We assume that GameFreak will release a patch before the Christmas sales campaign hits and many users try the game for the first time. They will have to solve this while finishing the second DLC, which we hope will have more fun than The Turquoise Mask.
“Although performance issues have marred the experience, we had a good time returning to the world of Pokémon Scarlet and Purple in The Turquoise Mask. It’s a fun expansion; nothing to write home about, but it’s good and leaves us with promise that the best is yet to come”, we said in the analysis of the first DLC of Pokémon Scarlet and Purple.
