Nintendo has released a new patch for Pokemon Sun and Moon, fixing several known glitches that disrupted online play. The new patch allows players to use Z-Memento and Z-Parting Shot, two Z-Moves that caused online battles to crash, resulting in both moves getting banned from Pokemon's Battle Spot.

The new patch also fixes a glitch involving Rocky Helmet. Previously, if a player attacked a Pokemon holding a Rocky Helmet (which causes physical damage) and both Pokemon fainted, the Pokemon holding the Rocky Helmet was declared the winner. According to official Pokemon rules, the Pokemon on the attack should be declared the winner.

The other glitch fixed by the new patch involves a scenario where Pokemon couldn't learn a level-up move when evolving. The glitch only impacted Pokemon (like Kadabra) that are supposed to automatically learn moves when they evolve.

The patch did not change any Pokemon's stats or add any content to the game, as is typical for the Pokemon franchise.

Players will need to download and install the patch in order to access Pokemon Sun and Moon's online features.
