Besides the fixes, Ranked Battle is a big addition, allowing players to battle one another under specific conditions and earn a rank. By progressing through Ranked Battle, players can increase their rank through the first season, which will last until January 31, 2023.

While not many specific fixes were listed, fans will be glad to see that Nintendo and The Pokémon Company are listening to fans. Players will also want to participate in the special Tera Raid where they can catch an exclusive Charizard.
