Shortly after the official releases of Pokémon Sun and Moon , some battle glitches were found. In particular, two Z-Moves were causing problems during battle and there were instances that the Rocky Helmet held item would change the result of a battle.

Game Freak has finally uploaded a patch to the Nintendo eShop that will update Sun and Moon so these glitches are eliminated.

According to Serebii, the patches are required to go online and to participate in official events. This Sun and Moon patch fixes the the moves Z-Parting Shot and Z-Memento on Battle Spot and a glitch in regards to the winner of a game if Rocky Helmet knocks the opponent out when you're knocked out.

There was also a glitch that prevented Kadabra learning Confusion when Abra evolved and this will also be fixed with the new patch.

Parting Shot and Memento were banned from competitive play because of the known glitch and will continue to be banned until Battle Season 2 starts on Jan. 17. Battle Season 2 will allow for the entire National PokeDex to be used online when Pokémon Bank is eventually updated.

The Pokémon Sun and Moon version 1.1 patch takes 296 blocks to download.
