Games lag badly with an unstable frame rate that can drop below 5 fps.

Even in the overworld, people have reported struggling to get it past 25fps.

The problems are worse when people play the games while docked, as it attempts to render in 1080p versus 720p on handhelds.

While the lag can make moving around the open world difficult, there are even more bugs that fans are struggling with.

Some have reported that the games are locked, meaning they cannot move their character at all.

When this happens, players will have to close and restart the games and expect lost progress.

Other issues include landscape popping in and out, and characters being able to move through solid objects.

When playing cooperatively with others, it can be difficult to see the other player as they go in and out of the screen.

Some Pokemon have also been spotted without textures, meaning they only appear as their black base model.

Players also got stuck in the landscape like trees and couldn’t escape.

Pokémon has released three main series games in the last 12 months, including Pokémon Legends: Arceus and Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.

Many believe it’s the short development time that has led to these shocking performance issues.

Nintendo is well-known for its great shine when it comes to first-party games, but this time Pokémon seems to have fallen through the cracks.

Fans are still hoping that these issues will be fixed in upcoming patches and updates.

However, by the looks of it, Scarlet and Violet is among the lowest-rated Pokémon games to have been released to date.
