Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire may be just arriving in Europe this week, but 3DS Trainers in North America and Australia have been catching them all — or trying to — for nearly a week already. All is not perfect with the excellent remakes, however, as some have come across a bug that causes the game to freeze.

Those that have made it to the end of the game may have encountered this freeze when it switches from the Hall of Fame to the ending movie, and that'll be the focus of the version 1.2 patch due in early December. We've already had patch 1.1 fix 'various bugs', so after this update the title will hopefully be free of such issues.

We thoroughly enjoyed Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire in our review and didn't encounter this freeze — it's positive news nevertheless that it'll be cleared in an update, though naturally it's preferable for such bugs to not make it through in the first place.
