Pokemon Home v.2.0, which will include two additional games that could be mutely compatible with the cloud service app, has been announced by the Pokemon Company and Nintendo.
With the newest version of Home, you will be able to connect Pokemon Legends: Arceus as well as Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl alongside previous games Pokemon Sword and Shield, Pokemon: Lets Go, Pikachu and Eevee, and Pokemon Go.
The update will be released in the coming weeks.
While managing your collection of creatures across many games, Pokemon you can take to each game is limited to the Pokemon that appear in those games. You may see the details on which games can be taken to the help menu of the mobile version of the app.
Strange Balls will be introduced along with the introduction of new Pokemon Legends: Arceus. Because Pokemon Legends: Arceus takes place in the distant past, there are no Poke Balls from the other games yet. When creatures caught in Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl or Sword and Shield are transferred to Arceus, they will appear in Strange Balls.
Only Pokemon Legends: Arceus and Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl will appear. All Pokemon caught in Arceus that are transferred to Sword or Shield will appear in regular Poke Balls. That said, once the update drops, you will be able to see the Poke Balls they were originally caught in.
When you connect each game to the app, Nintendo will give a special Pokemon to commemorate the addition of Arceus and Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl to the Pokemon Home program.
Mystery Gifts in the mobile device version of Home will be netted by depositing a Pokemon from Arceus into the Switch version of Home. Turtwig, Chimchar, and Piplup will be netted with hidden abilities as Mystery Gifts.
The Pokemon''s abilities in Arceus, Brilliant Diamond, and Shining Pearl will differ from those they can learn in other games. This means the Pokemon''s moves will not be repeated when it is taken to another game for the first time. However, if you bring it back to the original game, it will return to having the moves it originally knew.
