Pokémon Sword and Shield are now causing Roku devices to crash

The wait is officially over for Pokémon Sword and Shield! The latest duo of Pokémon games are now available for purchase around the world for Nintendo Switch. Pokémon Sword and Shield allow you to choose from three new partner Pokémon and encounter never-before-seen Pokémon. Explore the Wild Area, a vast expanse of land where the player can freely control the camera. You can also team up with other players locally or online in the new multiplayer co-op Max Raid Battles. Pokémon Sword and Shield are reportedly causing certain Roku devices to crash. Read on below for some more context:

“The issue was raised by a Redditor who goes by the name MazInger-Z, who started a thread on the official Pokémon sub-Reddit. He said that the Roku device in their house started acting up, and upon looking through social media, found many others who were suddenly experiencing the problem. The theory was that the errors, which primarily affected Roku sticks, were caused by an update.

“The true cause, however, was not the latest update to the Roku devices, but rather Pokémon Sword and Shield on the Nintendo Switch. When his wife started playing the new Pokémon game, his Roku device crashed. He then tried a solution that he found online, which was to place the Nintendo Switch in Airplane Mode while playing the game.”
