Pokémon Legends: Arceus has received its first post-launch patch, aiming to fix some of the recent glitches causing some frustration to the player community.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus may have only been out for a little while now, but some players have encountered a few difficulties when it came to catching a certain Pokémon. Cherrim has been alluding many players since launch, even more frustrating when the game throws an early Research Task asking players to nab one.

Cherrim, a Pokémon able to change its form depending on the weather, became seemingly impossible to catch if it changed forms even once. Effectively reducing it's catch-rate to zero. But, following the recent patch, that struggle is no more.

And that's not the only thing that's been fixed. Below, we've detailed all of the changes that have made their way to Pokémon Legends: Arceus in this first patch.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus First Post-Launch Patch: Full Notes Detailed

The full patch notes are as follows:

  • Fixed an issue where, while offline, the screen could freeze after trying to pick up a lost satchel by throwing out a ball that contains a Pokémon.
  • Fixed an issue that sometimes made it difficult to catch Cherrim.
  • Fixed an issue where a certain event would not occur during a particular Mission, preventing the scenario from proceeding as intended.
  • Fixed an issue where players could obtain certain Pokémon twice instead of once only as intended, prohibiting the player from obtaining other certain Pokémon. The relevant Pokémon will appear for players who were unable to catch those certain Pokémon due to this issue.
