Pokemon Unite update bug fixes

The update fixes a major Sylveon bug, as well as a flurry of other glitches.

The update featured a flurry of bug fixes that easily has towered most previous patches. Most of them revolve around Pokemon moves or animation that haven’t been working properly.


  • Thunder: Fixed a bug where Thunder would not activate under certain conditions.


  • Rough Skin: Fixed a bug that caused Rough skin to deal more damage than it should in certain situations.


  • Fairy Frolic: Fixed a bug where Fairy Frolic would not activate an HP recovery after being used.


  • Berry Belly Flop: Fixed a bug where Berry Belly Flop would accidentally trigger while on a jump pad.
  • Covet: Fixed bug where Belch could be used more frequently.


  • Full Heal: Fixed a bug where Full Heal would not properly remove status effects after being used.

The major gameplay changes will officially take effect on Wednesday, November 10, after the patch goes live to compliment the start of Season 2.

Out of all the changes this time, it looks like the biggest overhaul is Greedent. Since its October launch, the pesky Galar squirrel has quickly become a thorn in the side of many Trainers who felt he was too overpowered. Hopefully, the new update will remedy that for many players.
