Believe it or not, Pokémon Sword and Shield hasen’t been updated in months. In fact, the last time that Pokémon Sword and Shield had been updated was in December of 2020, a couple of months after The Crown Tundra DLC had released. Well, 5 months later, the update drought has ended.
A brand new update for Pokémon Sword and Shield released earlier tonight, bringing the pair of games to version 1.3.2. As for the official patch notes, they only list a couple of things. They said that they “fixed the issue where some Pokémon icons were not properly displaying during online or local wireless battles”, and that “several issues have been fixed to improve gameplay experience”.
