Pokémon HOME (Mobile Version) Will be Upgraded This June

Coming this June the mobile version of Pokémon HOME will receive an update. It promises to make sorting Pokémon easier, adds a Catch Calender, enhanced Pokédex features and a special Bulbasaur and Squirtle capable of Gigantimaxing will be available through the Mystery Gift function.

The Catch Calendar feature allows you to view your Pokémon arranged by the dates on which you caught them. You can also set specific dates as Anniversaries, such as your birthday or the day you first met a Pokémon that has become special to you.

The updated Pokédex introduces the ability to view Pokémon registered to your Pokémon HOME Pokédex from different angles. You’ll be able to get a better look at your Pokémon partners, and you might even discover some new details that you didn’t notice before.

To top things off, these new features are being commemorated with special Bulbasaur and Squirtle that you’ll be able to receive as Mystery Gifts in both the mobile version of Pokémon HOME and in your Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield game. What makes these two beloved Pokémon so remarkable is that they carry the Gigantamax Factor! This pair is a perfect complement to the Charmander you can receive from Leon once you’ve become the Champion in Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield.

Pokemon Tease Katy Perry Song for This Friday

And then we heard nothing about it ever again and most of us even forgot it existed? Well, check out what Pokémon tweeted out today:

So, it looks like we can expect Katy Perry’s new track to drop this Friday! I’m quite curious what it’ll sound like.
