Here are several versions that the franchise Pokémon is on a downward slope. The versions are multiplying for the saga, the critics as well. After the absence of the national Pokédex ofSword et Shieldthe poorly received graphic overhaul of Diamond They sparkled et Perle Sparklingand the technical setbacks of Pokemon Legends: Arceus, many fans of the franchise are flabbergasted by the plethora of technical issues plaguing the versions Ecarlate et Violet. Despite the good ideas conveyed by the title, there are far too many problems to be excused.

The players have more than ever the impression of being taken for cash cows and the complaints have never been so audible. Nevertheless, Pokémon Ecarlate/Violet are the most pre-ordered releases in the franchise. Expected versions with fresh ideas that deserve to be technically more accomplished. For several days, the bad press has multiplied for Nintendo, Game Freak and The Pokémon Company, singled out for this fiasco. And while the announcement of a possible patch is still pending, Nintendo seems to find itself back to the wall, forced to make a radical decision.

As reported by several Internet users, Nintendo would have accepted refund requests for games purchased on its eShop. An extremely rare case, the Japanese publisher not having the habit of responding favorably to this kind of request. But the present case being extreme, it seems that Nintendo is going in the direction of pissed off players to try to soften their anger. On Reddit, testimonials of the genre are flourishing.

If you purchased this game from Nintendo eShop, you can call for a refund. The number is 1 (855) 559-5568. They said it would be a one-time exception to their digital refund policy, and I technically pre-ordered the game since I bought it a day before it was released. Also, after saying that refund is possible, they also informed me about the existence of third party review sites and advised me to check them out before buying in the future. It’s almost like saying the Nintendo and Pokemon brands aren’t the mark of quality they once were. It’s really sad, but at least I get my money back.

To request a refund for your game, it’s simple: all you have to do is contact Nintendo support and claim your due. In the event that Nintendo gives the green light, a confirmation email will be sent to you. The game will then be deleted from your console. Please note that depending on your region, the process may be more difficult than expected. Indeed, American players would have an easier time getting reimbursed than Australian players, for example. To see if where France is in all this. What is certain is that disgruntled players are not done making their voices heard until the technical problems with the Scarlet and Purple versions of Pokémon are resolved.
