Pokemon bans

The Pokemon Company announced today that it has started handing out new bans relating to the Pokemon games on Switch as well as Pokemon Home for those that have been involved with illegally modified data.

The announcement mentioned how this data can bring about issues with the games and apps. As a result, some users may find that they will not be able to access online play for the Pokemon games as well as internet functionality for Pokemon Home. Bans may be either limited or indefinite, and there will be no refunds. However, keep in mind that the bans only affect Pokemon releases – no other titles on Switch will be impacted. The Pokemon Company may also take similar action in the future without notice.

Pokemon Home update 2.0.3

A new Pokemon Home update has been released, with the app now at version 2.0.3. Keep in mind that this patch only appears to be available on mobile and not on Switch.

The new update is primarily about addressing issues. On top of that, there’s been a very small text change.

The full patch notes for the Pokemon Home version 2.0.3 update are as follows:

Pokemon Home update 2.0.2

A new 2.0.2 update has gone out for Pokemon Home, though it is currently only being offered on mobile.

Users now have the ability to delete their accounts. A few other issues have also been addressed.

Pokemon Home update 2.0.1

Pokemon Home has gained a new 2.0.1 update. This follows the big 2.0.0 patch that brought along support for Pokemon Legends: Arceus and Pokemon Brilliant Diamond / Shining Pearl.

We have the official Pokemon Home version 2.0.1 update patch notes for both Switch and mobile below: 

Pokemon Home update 2.0.0

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.”

Here’s a whole bunch of information about the Pokemon Home version 2.0.0 update, including celebration bonuses:
