DeNA has rolled out a new update for Pokemon Masters. Patch 1.2.1 is out now on iOS and Android devices, and it finally resolves some issues that have been affecting the game the past few weeks.

"As compensation for recent issues in Pokemon Masters, 1,000 Gems have been sent to all players," the official Pokemon Masters Twitter account announced. To claim your Gems, you'll need to log into the game before November 7 at 7:59 AM PT / 10:59 AM ET.

The issue in question involved a discrepancy in Power values. Specifically, the Power value of certain moves used during battle would be lower than they were supposed to be, affecting the game's balance. With this update, the correct Power value will be taken into account in battles.

Pokemon Masters launched on iOS and Android devices on August 28, and the game is off to a strong start. According to mobile analytics company Sensor Tower, Masters made more than $26 million during its first week of availability. The only other Pokemon mobile game to earn more within that time frame was Pokemon Go, although that game had the disadvantage of launching in fewer territories.

Pokemon Masters is set in an island region called Pasio, where famous trainers have gathered for the Pokemon Masters League competition.
