Pokémon Scarlet & Violet Have Some Serious Performance Issues

Pokémon Scarlet & Violet are out today and fans are no doubt excited to start their journey, but all is not well in the open-world of Paldea. Unfortunately, these new Pokémon games feature some serious performance issues on the Nintendo Switch. 

According to IGN’s Rebekah Valentine in her review in progress: there really isn’t a moment in where’d I’d say they run well.

The framerate chugs, character models and shadows pop in and out, Pokémon clip through walls and get stuck in them entirely… The camera also has a habit of clipping through the environment, giving you a nice glimpse of the unfinished insides of a video game mountain, for example.

For our full review of Pokémon Scarlet & Violet and everything Pokémon, stay tuned to IGN.
