this video reveals how the Scarlet and Violet versions are a disgrace, players are right to be outraged

Pokemon Scarlet/Purple is available on nintendo-switch for a few days, and the criticisms are already flying: falls of FPS, bugsI’open world lags behind and arouses much ridicule. And it’s not that video published on Reddit who will settle his case.

A video that is sadly talked about on Reddit

That it was expected, this Pokemon Scarlet/Purple ! After very classic episodes in their structure, a remake of the versions Diamond/Pearl sympathetic but not revolutionary, and a Pokemon Legends: Arceus with more original ideas but too little exploited, this new iteration was expected like the messiah. Released this Friday, November 18, Pokemon Scarlet/Purple succeeded in the bet of the passage in open world, by offering great freedom of exploration, new pokemon very successful and substantial content.

A real success, then? Not really. Because if the game received rather positive reviews from the specialized press, the players are much less tender towards him. And for good reason, the Nintendo Switch exclusivity suffers from (very) many technical problems which spoil the gaming experience, like these untimely freezes like the one shared on Reddit by BenGMan30.

Look no further: as other Reddit users humorously point out in the comments to this post, it’s not the video player that’s the victim of bugs, or your internet connection that’s acting up. No, a lot of fights do happen that way, because Pokemon Scarlet/Purple is simply bugged to the core. And this is just an appetizer.

Bugs galore

Pokemon Scarlet/Purple is he the new Cyberpunk 2077 ?. Two years ago, CD Projekt Red’s baby became the piñata of the net when it came out completely buggy, technically more than weak, to the point of making the game more or less unplayable on older generation consoles. If we don’t necessarily expect as much technically from a game released on a console as underpowered as the Switch, it would seem all the same that the last games Pokemon take the same path.

On Reddit and especially on Twitter, there are countless videos illustrating the problems ofe Pokemon Scarlet/Purple, from those characters who ride motorcycles in a vacuum to those whose limbs seem disarticulated. Add to that the textures that do not load or become deformed, the holes in the map, the drops in FPS (frames per second) or even the screen freezes both in combat and during your exploration, and you are touching the full extent of the problem. We share with you below some of the many problems encountered by players since Friday.
