Pokemon Home

Pokemon Home is slowly starting to roll out its big 2.0.0 update. Eventually it should go live on all supported platforms, but we’ve at least been able to confirm that it’s available on Switch as well as iOS.

Keep in mind that Pokemon Home is undergoing maintenance for the next few hours. That means even after you download the update, you won’t be able to access the app until it finishes.

After revealing last week that compatibility with Pokemon Legends: Arceus and Brilliant Diamond/Shining Pearl is being planned for Pokemon Home, The Pokemon Company have today announced that maintenance has been scheduled for tomorrow to implement this. This is scheduled to last from 00:00 UTC – 06:00 UTC, with the possibility of it lasting into May 19 to reduce server strain. Full details below:


The Pokemon Company today announced that the big 2.0.0 update is coming soon to Pokemon Home. Once installed, it will support Pokemon Legends: Arceus, Pokemon Brilliant Diamond, and Pokemon Shining Pearl.

The new update will allow fans to deposited and withdraw Pokémon from these titles, as well as other prior games. That means you could take a Pikachu from Sword and Shield and put it in a different release such as Pokemon Legends: Arceus. However, “transferring Pokemon to a game they were not originally caught in may cause certain changes to known moves, level, and what type of Poké Ball they were caught in.”
