Pokemon Sword and Shield causes Roku devices on the same network to crash and enter a boot cycle. As players go through Pokemon Sword and Shield some notice that their Roku devices have suddenly started crashing and restarting incorrectly. Initially, the problem was blamed on Roku's latest update, but it turns out that the problem was caused by the influence of Pokemon Sword and Shield on network traffic. The crash is due to a combination of the Pokemon Sword and Shield Y-Comm service, which constantly searches for other players on the same wireless network or online, and Roku devices cannot tell Pokemon data other than the data it needs. it works.
According to a post published by Reddit on the subject, it seems that the problem is because the Pokemon Sword and Shield network probe look similar to the data packs used by Roku until the Roku device does not can split it and then collapse due to its inability to read it.
The issue seems to concern mainly Roku sticks, not other Roku devices. There is also an easy enough fix ̵
As someone who is affected by this problem, I can honestly say that it was one of the most accidentally despairing things I have experienced. I tried EVERYTHING to fix my Rocky's ongoing disaster for the past two weeks before finding out that it was related to the new Pokemon game of all things.
