The GWS should have been in since the start
These are both effectively content updates, and the main event is the addition of Arceus and Darkrai (the latter of which will be live on April 1). The GWS was something players have been wanting for a long while, and honestly, should have been available at launch. It proctors wonder trades, which are essentially random trades.
To access the GWS, you need to head to Jubilife City, and have a Switch Online membership. Other than that, “some issues have been fixed for more pleasant gameplay.” Classic Pokemon patch notes!
Pokemon BDSP 1.3.0 patch notes:
- Added an event related to Pokémon Legends: Arceus.
- If a user on a Nintendo Switch system has save data from Pokémon Legends: Arceus that meets set requirements, that player can take part in a special event to meet the Mythical Pokémon Arceus when playing the Pokémon Brilliant Diamond or Pokémon Shining Pearl games.
- Further details can be found here.
- Added a network-trading feature at GWS.
- It is now possible to trade Pokémon online at the GWS in Jubilife City.
- Note: A Nintendo Switch Online membership (paid service) is required to trade Pokémon online.
- Some issues have been fixed for more pleasant gameplay.
