Released on November 18, 2022, the new franchise games pokemon are not escaping strong criticism. scarlet & violet may offer a nice open world to explore, but their performance issues are marring the experience for many fans. As a result, many users are asking Nintendo for a refund, something unheard of in the pocket monster series.
The first venture in the series developed by Game Freak that brings an open world as the main novelty is a lot of fun, but also has serious flaws in its performance.
Bugs and glitches are common during adventure in Paldea. There are several moments in which characters, scenery and little monsters simply disappear and reappear with a change of camera, for example. It’s not hard to find memes and videos on the net highlighting these defects, which is never a good thing for the image of a famous IP.
However, not all players are having fun with the bugs. Many, in fact, were so angry that they ended up asking Nintendo for their money back.
A user of redditfor example, posted that your request for a refund of pokemon scarlet has been approved by the company. He points out that “a lot of people don’t know this, but Nintendo offers this option in rare situations”. The request says the following:
Hey! I bought Pokemon Scarlet last night, and I’ve played it for about an hour or two, and unfortunately, the game runs incredibly poorly. I don’t normally get in touch in these cases, but frankly I think I would really appreciate a refund as I can’t see myself enjoying playing this in its current state. Would it be possible?
Another person on the platform reported that he managed to return the digital version of the title and recover the money spent🇧🇷
Brazilians also asked for refunds
It’s not just in the United States that complaints are taking place. In Brazil, there are already cases of dissatisfied buyers with the product developed by Game Freak. Reports highlight technical issues and a high level of disappointment with the company.
Fortunately, everything indicates that the money is being returned, but it still seems to be for acquisitions of the digital version of the game, as we can see in the case below:
It’s true that there are those fans who are having a blast with the games. In my experience, the journey in Paldea has been quite interesting, bringing new ideas and dozens of hours of good times.
However, the lack of polish is incredibly off-putting, underscoring the tricky time Game Freak finds itself in. Overcoming these defects is something that no fan should have to do to enjoy the works of the series. pokemon🇧🇷
The good news is that Big N seems to be aware of the protests, refunding the amount spent. Perhaps, even with the great sales of the titles, improvements will be released in the near future.
