pokemon scarlet and violet update 3.0.1 patch notes

The long-awaited update for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet is finally here and it fixes several bugs with certain TMs, moves, and items in the Indigo Disk DLC. We’ll walk you through all the updates included in the Pokemon Scarlet and Violet 3.0.1 patch notes.

Update 3.0.1 for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet is now live and Pokemon fans can rejoice as it brings many important bug fixes for Indigo Disk DLC concerning TMs and moves, among others.

With quite a few bug fixes in tow, here’s all you need to know about the 3.0.1 patch notes for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Indigo Disk DLC.

Pokemon Scarlet & Violet DLC 3.0.1 update explained

The Pokemon Scarlet and Violet 3.0.1 update focuses on fixing bugs during the use of certain TMs, moves, and glitches.

Earlier, trainers needed to use the item Shieldon Claws to craft TM223 (Metal Sound), but now you can craft this TM without using the item.

Additionally, a few moves that Calyrex would learn through TMs on combining with Glastrier or Spectrier to turn into its Ice Rider and Shadow Rider forms would remain in its moveset even after returning to its original state. This has been fixed since it was getting an unfair edge in battles.

The Dragon Cheer bug gave the user an unfair advantage in damage output.

Many players had their game freeze when leveling up any Inkay at level 29 or below, making them restart. Now, you won’t face any issues with Inkay altogether.

A glitch involving players getting trapped in walls after setting up the Item Printer in their League Club Room has been sorted.

Finally, the frustrating issue with Dragon Cheer’s critical hit boosts remaining active even after the Pokemon switched out and then in the battle has been resolved.

You can read the complete Pokemon Scarlet and Violet 2.0.2 patch notes here:

  • If the player used items to level up an Inkay to Lv. 29 or lower, the game would stop responding to button input. This bug has been fixed.
  • Some materials needed to craft TM223 (Metal Sound) were previously dropped by a Pokémon that appears in only one version of the game. This issue has been resolved. Shieldon Claws are no longer required to craft TM223 (Metal Sound).
  • After players installed the Item Printer in the League Club Room, under certain circumstances players could get stuck between the Item Printer and the wall. This bug has been fixed. Affected players can now get unstuck by speaking to the character next to the Item Printer and selecting “I want to print something!”
  • When a Pokémon under the effect of Dragon Cheer was switched out of battle and then reentered that battle, its attacks would still have a heightened chance of landing critical hits. This bug has been fixed.
  • Certain moves that Calyrex could learn via TM only while united with Glastrier or Spectrier would remain in Calyrex’s move set even after Calyrex separated from Glastrier or Spectrier. Furthermore, even if those moves were forgotten, Calyrex could then remember those moves without being united with Glastrier or Spectrier. This bug has been fixed.
  • Other select bug fixes have been implemented.
