The Pokemon Company has pushed out a new version update for Pokemon Sword And Shield.
The update brings the game up to Version 1.2.1 and includes a number of bugfixes. Full details can be found in the patchnotes below:
Ver. 1.2.1 (Released July 7, 2020)
- A bug in regards to the number of digits for password settings has been fixed.
- In regards to the passwords that can be set for Y-Comm and Max Raid Battles, we fixed the bug where players could be matched with others whose passwords were not coinciding.
- Other updated content
- We fixed several other issues to improve game play experience.
What do you think? Let us know in the comments.
[UPDATE]: According to some reports from dataminers and other Pokemon players, this latest update includes a patch to prevent hacked raids from showing up in the Y-comm, or at the very least make them much more difficult to come by. Although this has not been confirmed from official sources, it would certainly be great if this is indeed the case.
Context: We've heard reports of players saying that Y-Comm Stamps with hacked Max Raid Battles are not appearing at all in other player's Stamp Lists.
Goodbye, hacked Raids!

So a note of the new SWSH patch that they didn't mention is that hacked raids are mostly going to stop appearing on the Y-Comm.
Figured this was coming when the event raids broke a bit last week. Glad it's finally happened.
