In our Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Mass Outbreak Not Working Solution guide, we are going to give you several fixes for the Mass Outbreaks not appearing or not showing up. The cause of this problem can be a bug, but it doesn’t have to be. So, here are some possible scenarios for why these events are not working for you and what to do about it.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Mass Outbreaks Not Working Solutions
There are several potential solutions for the Mass Outbreak not spawning, or not appearing, or not showing in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. The first one is pretty simple: it might be the wrong time of day. Sometimes, the Mass Outbreaks include Pokemon that can only spawn at night, or in the daylight. So, just wait patiently until the time of day changes. Another thing that can prevent you from participating in Mass Outbreaks is that you haven’t gotten far enough in the game’s main story. You need to get to the Academy and start the Treasure Hunt. Only then will you be able to see these events. Don’t worry, this happens fairly early in the main quest.
The third and final solution we have for the Mass Outbreak events not working in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet is actually a bug fix. Namely, it seems like Pokemon that are supposed to be in the Outbreak sometimes appear in walls or in the ground. Because, you know, Scarlet and Violet are not exactly the most glitch-free games out there. If that happens, you can simply go on a picnic to reset the spawn. You might have to do this several times. In case that doesn’t work, try changing the time in your settings in the hopes of “dislodging” this bug. Those are all the fixes we are aware of.
