Pokemon Home: issues relating to Original Color Magearna fixed; now seemingly only requires a completed National Pokedex

In addition to being a cloud-based storage solution for Pokemon, Pokemon Home also offers users various challenges and rewards when you complete them – most notably the Original Color Magearna, which could not be legally obtained any other way previously. To get it, you needed a complete “living” Pokedex, i.e. one copy of every Pokemon in Pokemon Home. However, many users who had completed that challenge didn’t receive Magearna. A maintenance has recently been completed which fixed these issues. Additionally, according to Serebii, the condition to get Original Color Magearna is now much easier to achieve – it seems like you only need a complete National Pokedex registered in Pokemon Home, but not a living one. For example, you only need to evolve Bulbasaur to Ivysaur and then to Venusaur, but you don’t need individual copies of Bulbasaur, Ivysaur and Venusaur anymore. However, keep in mind that this hasn’t been officially confirmed yet.
