Pokemon Home Scarlet Violet compatibility

Original (5/18): It’s been announced that Pokemon Home will be updated to version 3.0.0 next week, which will add compatibility for Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet. The patch goes live on May 23, 2023.

Once players link their game to Pokemon Home, they’ll be able to move creatures over and bring select Pokemon from other games to the Paldea region. The Tera Type of Pokemon transferred to Scarlet and Violet from other titles will be determined by their original type or types.

Here’s some additional information about the update:

  • Convert Pokemon HOME Points into LP (League Points): Players will be able to exchange Pokemon HOME Points, which they receive based on the number of Pokemon in their Boxes, for LP that they can use in Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet.
  • View Game-Specific Details: Players will be able to change a Pokemon’s summary page to display information from other games the Pokemon has been in. Additionally, in the mobile device version of Pokemon HOME, the summary page of Pokemon transferred from Pokemon Bank will now show its stats and information as they were in Pokemon Bank.
  • Changing Moves: From version 3.0.0 onward, when bringing a Pokemon from Pokemon HOME into a linked game, players will be able to change the moves it knows from among a list of moves it has learned up to that point. This will allow players to have their Pokemon know moves before moving it out of Pokemon HOME.
  • Added Challenges and Stickers: If certain challenges are completed in the mobile device version of Pokemon HOME, you can obtain stickers as rewards. You can use the stickers you obtain to customize your profile, so be sure to complete all sorts of challenges to create designs that are uniquely “you”!
  • Bring Along Gimmighoul (Roaming Form): Players will be able to bring Gimmighoul (Roaming Form) from Pokemon GO into Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet via Pokemon HOME.

Those who transfer a Pokemon from Scarlet or Violet to Home for the first time will be able to receive a Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly with Hidden Abilities as Mystery Gifts in the mobile device version of the app.
