Bug discovered in Surprise Trade that can crash your game

Be very careful when using Surprise Trade for the time being!

Heads-up, Trainers! It looks like there’s a bug going around involving Surprise Trade and a malicious Pokémon in Pokémon Sword and Shield that could potentially crash your game.

Kaphotics on Twitter reported these findings.

So far, the game only appears to crash when the Y-COM’s online features are accessed.

Kaphotics also confirmed that the issue does not mess with save data.

So far, there’s no official word from The Pokémon Company about a patch to alleviate the issue.

Stay tuned for more!
