  • JuniorTCG Junior Lopez (@JuniorTCG) reported

    OMG WTF!!! #PokemonViolet has crushed on me five times... like the is so annoying @NintendoAmerica Please fix this asap!!! including the frame rate issues... #Pokemon

  • lil_jon_boy J-On da boy (@lil_jon_boy) reported from Kansas City, Kansas

    Yo @NintendoAmerica i hope the next #LegendOfZelda game can play smooth on the switch. Dont want any of these scarlett and violet issues.

  • SilverTechOmega Aaron (@SilverTechOmega) reported

    @ArataStart1 @Kali64440478 @yoloswagstudios Maybe it has to do with limitations? After all the games have changed from sprite style to full on 3D which I'm sure the fancier you try to make it look means less time on other parts. Along with deadlines and upsetting Nintendo could also be issues.

  • _PyBlock_ PyBLØCK (@_PyBlock_) reported

    @curly60e @__danvergara__ A Nintendo Switch will have lines on the screen in case of physical impact, water damage, or a software glitch. Unfortunately, the screen problem ruins your gaming experience. Some fixes include reseating the LCD connectors, resetting the console, and professional screen repair.

    @Chloe34062077 @Nintendo you're asking the fire emblem engage devs to fix the new pokemon game?

  • TheJokester_MrJ The Jokester Mr. J🃏🤡 (@TheJokester_MrJ) reported

    @ColdNightsGami1 I get what you're saying but when these issues are persistent from all of the switch Pokémon games Nintendo has not rectified it or improved on it but repeatedly made the same mistake It is a problem that can't be ignored you don't need to play it in order to see it.

  • Grubville_acnh Grubville (@Grubville_acnh) reported

    @MDMRN Trouble for me is that Twitter is built into the Nintendo Switch. Maybe there will be an updated Switch allowing more flexible socials, either more choices or simply settable for user. Doubtful that this will happen soon, but maybe a few years on. Or Twitter could federate….

  • TommyDrywater Tommy Drywater (@TommyDrywater) reported

    @Collinpt21 @InfinityWard My gamertag that I've had for 16 years was reported as offensive and I had to change it. Never once have I had to change it on any platform. Epic,steam,xbox,nintendo,playstation never had a problem with it. Yet 3 days into mw2 and it's reported as offensive.

  • YoshiChris08 Yoshi @ Genesis? / LTC (@YoshiChris08) reported

    @objectshredder oh well. i wouldnt recommend alting on your switch till the last of the waves bc i dont know if nintendo is gonna issue another one of them console ban waves in my case i got lucky bc i have multiple consoles but a lot dont have that privilege and got hit with major copium

  • Chonkichoky Chonkichoky (@Chonkichoky) reported

    @steddieonmunson @DisneyDLV Isn't this something more of a nintendo problem rather than the devs problem?

  • masku627 MASKU627 (@masku627) reported

    @NintendoAmerica @Pokemon you guys really need to patch scarlet and violet. I know for a fact that that multplie content creators STREAMED EVIDENCE that the game has performance issues. Look on YouTube and you guys really can't see it..

  • KeithSpeaks14 KeithSpeaks (@KeithSpeaks14) reported

    I never complain about frame rate. But holy hell, Pokemon Scarlet is broken. **** disappears and reappears out of no where. Skips so much. Like wow Game Freak, I’m enjoy the game but damn. I blame Nintendo rushing them though

  • harrymkchi_ Harry (@harrymkchi_) reported

    so the switch net is still bad eh i don't think it's my internet that was dying because my phone was still connected to it when my switch net acted up suddenly feels weird at this point but oh well ig nintendo won't fix it in the future

  • Speedy_Gamer_PR JRM (@Speedy_Gamer_PR) reported

    @Pokukeki @Catalano2552 @NintendoAmerica 22 hours and still have not fell of the map or ecperience a single crash. But sure it have performace problems.

  • Aeobseo Dat boi (@Aeobseo) reported

    @NintendoAmerica Whens the patch to fix performance? You guys got the money to do better. Probably should pull back on advertising an unfinished product

  • asradinsky wallaceandgromitgaming (@asradinsky) reported

    My biggest issue with tera raids is the timer. If your connection with your teammates isn’t good, which it never is because it’s Nintendo online, it takes longer for you to select your moves and for your Pokémon to do them, but that does not slow down the timer at all

  • Jadd0c Jaddoc (@Jadd0c) reported

    @Jaluigi42 i was about to say "skill issue" then i realized that is not the actual Nintendo account

  • 8BitWhitt Holly, Jolly Whitmas 🎄 (@8BitWhitt) reported

    Nintendo 😭 I just had my first crash of the game. I did the backup menu and I still lost over an hour of game play including 8 Tera Pokémon I raided for. I'm so.. sad. Please fix this.

  • realrueoneshot Real Rue OneShot (@realrueoneshot) reported

    @DelDelley @StabYi3 also the nintendo switch outsold whatever big boy console he has so we can say skill issue

  • tmac1300 Ty (@tmac1300) reported

    @NintendoAmerica Also, I will not be purchasing this game until the performance issues are addressed. I am a lifelong pokemon fan and my standards are higher than this.

  • MaireNicolette Nicolette Maire (@MaireNicolette) reported

    @darki_splat They died so hard they took Nintendo servers down with 'em.

  • Cvbez Agile Tony (@Cvbez) reported

    yo @Nintendo, i pirated ur new pokemon game on my emulator and it runs like fuckign ****, plz fix!

  • Jmemeposting Jme (@Jmemeposting) reported

    @PowerfulHag I really do think the games are the most fun main gens in a long while. I really can't rate them that high, just because some of the issues are so bad. Gamefreak/Nintendo fumbled tremendously given how popular and profitable the series is, they do deserve to be criticized for it.

  • Chloe34062077 Chloe (@Chloe34062077) reported

    @Nintendo Fix your broken games first. Talking about scarlet and violet. Embarrassing title with your name on it

  • TactiMuse The Tactician Musician (@TactiMuse) reported

    People are over here complaining about #PokemonScarletViolet glitches... Meanwhile the only game (besides Minecraft) to ever CRASH my #NintendoSwitch system is #Splatoon3... Nintendo, fix your damn servers!

  • Skeleb1tch 🖤Bear🖤 (@Skeleb1tch) reported

    The fact that people have openly and very loudly talked about the issues with Pokémon Scarlet and Violet makes it very hard for me to believe that @Nintendo and @NintendoAmerica haven't received a single complaint. Sorry, but that doesn't sound right and I don't believe it.

  • JuniorTCG Junior Lopez (@JuniorTCG) reported

    OMG WTF!!! #PokemonViolet has crashed on me five times... like this is so annoying @NintendoAmerica Please fix this asap!!! including the frame rate issues... #Pokemon

    @HuttserGreywolf When i saw Nintendo issuing refunds for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet i felt so Validated. Nintendo took the L because even they realize the Games are in trouble the path their on.
