Nintendo has released a global update for the four mainline Pokemon games. Version 1.5 for Pokemon X & Y and Version 1.4 for Pokemon Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby can now be downloaded directly from the Nintendo 3DS eShop. While it’s not known what changes have been made to the games, it appears various bug fixes are included, along with an update to parts of the game text.

Pokemon fans will need to download the recent updates before playing online – whether in battles, trading via Wonder Trade, or redeeming any event Pokemon through Mystery Gift. Pokemon X and Y players must have at least 246 blocks available on the 3DS SD card, while the Pokemon Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby update requires 271 blocks to download. Earlier this month, the Pokemon Company revealed a new psychic-dark cross Pokemon named Hoopa Unbound, which will only be available for Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby owners.

The new patch, which is due to be rolled out on April 15th, includes a number of requested features including tweaked character balancing and additional sharing functionality. Sounds like it should be a good update.

    Pokemon Shuffle’s First Passcode Released, Plus New Event Details

    Game Freak and Nintendo’s free-to-play eShop title Pokemon Shuffle has updated with new events today following its downloadable patch last week. Along with new events, the match-3 game has introduced its first worldwide passcode. Players will have to enter a short code on the settings screen under “Passcodes”, where you can enter the following number and obtain two Mega starts for your Pokemon team: 20150007. So if you’ve been in a spot of trouble lately, the two mega starts – which allow specific caught Pokemon to mega evolve before the battle begins – will help players to clear some of those pesky higher levels.

    In addition to the passcode, new events have also been added. The Pokemon Company has extended the Mew event until March 23, which is lucky for players who have been nabbing the daily 1,000 coins from it. Plus, alongside the daily Rotom events, players can battle and capture the legendary Kyogre from Pokemon Alpha Sapphire until March 23. You’ll also unlock a jewel the first time you complete the battle, too. Let us know if you’ve been enjoying the free-to-play game in the comment section below.
