As of 25th October 2013, update data to fix certain errors and problems occurring in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y has been made available for download on Nintendo eShop. We strongly recommend that all Pokémon X and Pokémon Y players download and install this update data. We apologise for the inconvenience.
Scan one of the QR Code patterns using a Nintendo 3DS system while connected to the internet. Please scan the upper QR Code if you own Pokémon X and the lower QR Code if you own Pokémon Y. The update data for Pokémon X differs from that of Pokémon Y, so make sure you scan the QR Code for the version of the game you own.
Alternatively, starting Nintendo eShop on a Nintendo 3DS system that is displaying Pokémon X or Pokémon Y on the HOME Menu will show a list of software with update data available, from which you can select and download the update data.
For detailed information on how to connect to the internet, click here.
In some cases, you may first need to update the Nintendo 3DS system itself. To do so, please follow the on-screen instructions.
Select the Pokémon X: Update or Pokémon Y: Update and download it. Once the download is complete, the update will automatically be applied.
Start Pokémon X or Pokémon Y and check that it has been updated correctly. If the version number shown is 1.1, as in the image to the right, the update has been successful.
Software bought after the update data distribution date of 25th October 2013 may not display the version number of 1.1. In such cases, the update data must be downloaded and applied.
You will be able to continue using your saved game data.
The update data will be saved on the SD card inserted in your Nintendo 3DS system. If there is insufficient free space on the SD card, the update will not be applied successfully. You can check how much free space there is on your SD card by opening System Settings from the HOME Menu and selecting Data Management.
Please take care not to delete the update data, which can be viewed by opening System Settings → Data Management → Nintendo 3DS → Add-on Content.
