“Pokemon Scarlet & Violet” is the latest mainline Pokemon game which landed just last Nov. 18. However, its debut was spoiled shortly after by massive glitches in-game.
While some fans thought that Nintendo did a great job introducing a new open-world Japanese role-playing game (JRPG), some players concluded that the ninth gen game was too rushed.
Because of this, the gaming giant reportedly refunds the affected players for the bugs and other inconveniences.

When The Pokemon Company, Nintendo, and Game Freak announced that the next installment after “Pokemon Legends: Arceus: would arrive this year, the fans quickly got hyped by the announcement.
Unfortunately, the arrival of “Pokemon Scarlet & Violet” did not translate well for some players because of the infuriating glitches and technical issues.
According to Gamerant, the latest Pokemon games are history’s “worst-reviewed” mainline games. The criticisms keep flooding the internet as people criticize that the Nintendo Switch could not keep up with the game’s performance.
Just like a rock-type Pokemon, “Pokemon Scarlet & Violet” started in a rocky manner. As expected, Nintendo could not keep up with many complaints from gamers worldwide.
‘Pokemon Scarlet & Violet’ Technical Issues
When you search the internet for “Pokemon glitch,” you will notice that most of them are linked to the latest game.
From massive glitches to clippings, the technical issues are never-ending. Some also complained that their characters have extended limbs or torsos while walking.

Another concern is the noticeable fps drop which leads us to think that the Switch can’t handle the heavy graphical improvements of the game.
This game cannot be real…

Aside from these, others saw that their characters transformed into titans with broken arms. Some hilarious glitches include a Pokemon penetrating a trainer’s body and Fuecoco falling into the water.
How to Refund For ‘Pokemon Scarlet and Violet?’
In another story by GG Recon, one player noted that he just got approved for a refund for his “Pokemon Scarlet” pre-order. He added that those who experienced the same thing as him could do the steps below.
- First, go to Nintendo’s Customer Support and tap on “Start Chat.”
- From here, click the Nintendo Switch, then head to Downloads and Digital Content. After that, tap the Nintendo eShop and, lastly, click Refunds.
- After a few minutes, a chat agent will talk to you about the unsatisfactory experience you witnessed in the game. Customer support will offer you a refund.
Of course, you will be required to give your email address linked to your Nintendo account so the chat agent can verify your Switch’s serial number and payment information.
Once it’s finished, the “Pokemon Scarlet & Violet” will be removed from your console. Later, you will receive your refund from Nintendo.
