The Temtem patch notes for version 0.5.17 introduce the first balance changes for the new competitive pre-season and fix up some issues.

The last Temtem patch notes put the addition of ranked matchmaking front and center, along with some other content updates like the new Battle Log and multiple reward tiers for FreeTem. These notes are comparatively brief, but they make some key changes and fixes to keep things going smoothly for your ranked matches and beyond.

The main balance changes come for the Cage and Bamboozle abilities: Cage has been removed from the technique courses learnset for both Valash and Gyalis, while Bamboozle now costs 18 STA to use instead of 14.

Here are the full Temtem patch notes, straight from developer CremaGames' official site.
