Version 1.1.0 (available on November 11, 2021)
Communication function added for the Grand Underground, Super Contest Shows, Union Room, and Mystery Gift
You’ll be able to enjoy local communication function of game features like the Grand Underground, Super Contest Shows, and the Union Room. You’ll also be able to receive gifts via Mystery Gift.
Post–Hall of Fame elements added
Some game elements you’ll be able to enjoy after entering the Hall of Fame, such as Ramanas Park, will be implemented.
Note: If you have game data that reflects that you have already entered the Hall of Fame, you can play these elements immediately after updating the software.
Some in-game movies and animation added
Certain animated scenes and movies, including the title demo that plays when the software is booted up and the ending movie, will be implemented.
Note: A movie of the title demo has been added that plays when the software is booted up. You can see it by rebooting the game with existing save data.
Note: Animation of the ending movie has been added. Even if you have already reflected entering the Hall of Fame on your save data, you can see the ending by entering the Hall of Fame again.
Some issues have also been fixed for more pleasant gameplay.
Note: Local communication is not compatible with version 1.0.0. Please make sure you have the same update version as the people you’d like to play with.
About planned future updates:
On the day of the release, interactions using local communication in the Union Room will be limited to two players. You’ll be able to battle, trade, or mix records in the Union Room at first, but a future update is planned to enable greeting and Capsule Decoration functions as well.
Additionally, future updates are planned to enable Link Battles via the Colosseum function in Pokémon Centers.
