Pokémon Home Compatibility with BDSP and Legends Arceus Coming Soon

New info released!

The Pokémon Company has released new details regarding Pokémon Home compatibility with Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, and with Pokémon Legends Arceus.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus, Pokémon Brilliant Diamond, Pokémon Shining Pearl, Pokémon Sword, and Pokémon Shield will be mutually compatible with Pokémon HOME, and you will be able to deposit and withdraw Pokémon to and from each of these games.

Of note: transferring Pokémon 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. Which introduces us to the Strange Ball.

Pokémon transferred from BDSP and Sword/ Shield to Legend Arceus will appear in a Strange Ball. The same applies to Pokémon transferred from Legends Arceus to BDSP and Sword/Shield.

Depositing a Pokémon from BDSP in Home will gift you Turtwig, Chimchar and Piplup with Hidden Ability. Depositing a Pokémon from Legends Arceus gifts you Rowlet, Cyndaquil and Oshawott with highest Effort Values.

Pokémon Home mobile will allow you to check the Pokédex of each game connected to Home, along with the National Dex. There’s also going to be new Achievements and stickers!

We don’t have a release date yet for this update, but it will be releasing soon!
