Nintendo Releases Global 3DS Update For Pokemon X & Y, Alpha Sapphire And Omega Ruby

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.

      1. Lol, I can’t blame these people. I know it’s as simple as reading the box, but it really is so odd Gamefreak has had so much trouble making their Pokemon games in full 3D.

        There are so many 3DS games, that are obviously far more demanding than Pokemon, that can run in full 3D.

        1. Nintendo Tetrarch Quadramus-NX

          >>>Well who knows for sure, Pokemon could very well be a bit more demanding than Kid Icarus despite the obvious differences>>>

          >>>Or maybe the 3D would make the fps drop to a bit where people would complain yet again about another thing again>>>

  1. I do agree the frame rates are terrible during battles, but that’s only on the 3DS.
    I did a side by side comparison, and my brother’s 2DS plays everything much smoother.

    1. That is weird as hell, I’ve played it on the New 3DS and it still has the same issues with the frame rate during battles. I wonder why it would run better on a 2DS.

      I really hope this does something for the frame rate during battles.
