Pokémon X & Y patched to address game breaking bug

Download the update now from the 3DS eShop

Nintendo has released a Pokémon X & Y patch to address a game breaking bug.

The bug in question, which renders save files unusable, occurs when players save their progress in certain sections of Lumiose City.

Nintendo said last week that it hoped to address the issue with a fix in the near future. According to Nintendo Life, an update which does so is now available to download from the 3DS eShop.


The latest entry in the Pokemon series sold more than four million copies worldwide in a single weekend, according to Nintendo.

In our Pokemon X & Y review, we said the title is "a major leap forward for the franchise" and "the first Pokémon game worthy of the 21st century."
