Pokémon Scarlet & Violet PC Mod runs at 60 fps

The latest pair of Pokémon titles, Scarlet and Violet, were released just 10 days ago with a slew of bugs and technical issues, and unofficial fan-made versions are now fixing the games.

Scarlet and Violet were introduced on November 18, 2022, and some players immediately began tinkering with them to work around their more obvious flaws.

Thanks to a modder named Theboy181 on Twitter, there’s now an unofficial version of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet that runs on a PC instead of the Nintendo Switch console.

This PC mod lets the games run at a much smoother framerate of 60fps, rather than the usual 30fps that the Switch struggles to keep up with.

Theboy181 posted a short video on Twitter showing a significant improvement in the performance of the games achieved through their unofficial mod.

The mod is currently not available for download and it is unclear if it will ever be released to the public.

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet have been officially released by Nintendo and The Pokémon Company for the Nintendo Switch console only.

Therefore, running the games on another platform through emulation is illegal and amounts to piracy.

On the Switch, gamers have complained that games regularly slow down to 5 fps or less in busy areas.

Scarlet and Violet’s technical issues are more noticeable when the console is used in docked mode with a TV.

This is one of the earliest unofficial mods to Scarlet and Violet since release, the first being the Remove Sheeran mod that removes Ed Sheeran’s song “Celestial” from the game’s soundtrack.

Despite their technical hiccups, Pokémon Scarlet and Violet have managed to become the fastest-selling Pokémon games of all time in just three days since release.

Fans are still hoping that the games’ technical issues will be fixed soon through official patches and updates from developer Game Freak.
