Pokémon Home Updates For Game Compatibility
Pokémon Home has revealed a new update that will be released in the coming weeks that will come with many new features. First up, it will become compatible with Pokémon Legends: Arceus, Brilliant Diamond, Shining Pearl, Sword, Shield, Let’s Go Pikachu!, Let’s Go Eevee!, and Pokémon GO.
Pokémon caught in other games packed into Legends: Arceus will appear in Strange Balls and Pokémon from Legends: Arceus will all occur in regular Poke Balls. When you first link up with Legends: Arceus you will get Rowlet, Cyndaquil, and Oshawott with full effort. Linking with Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl will provide you Turtwig, Chimchar, and Piplup with Hidden Abilities.
Some prominent features are that moves that your Pokémon know that they cannot learn in other games will not transfer over with them, however, they will resume learning their original move set even if you change it up in a distinct game. Also, keep in mind that special Pokémon that can only be caught once in Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl can only be uploaded to Pokémon Home once per save data.
New stickers and achievements based on Legends: Arceus and Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl will also be added. New stuff, but exciting for everyone who has been waiting for these latest abilities to be made.
