Pokémon HOME is getting an update soon that will please a lot of players. The ability to link HOME to Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet was a source of frustration for those who wanted to move Pokémon freely. Now, that will be a cool reality with some perks to boot. The company initially mistakenly said the HOME update would happen on May 23 but has now set a new date.
The Pokémon Company made the exciting announcement via Twitter, revealing that those who do link Pokémon HOME to Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet will get a Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly with Hidden Abilities as Mystery Gifts.
The company also took to Twitter to reveal the real timing for this exciting update. The Pokémon HOME version 3.0.0 update will begin on May 29 and continue into May 30. And after that, players should hopefully be able to link Scarlet and Violet to their HOME and move their Pokémon with ease.
There’s only one catch to this Pokémon HOME linking update, and it is not really a catch honestly. A Pokémon can only be moved to a game that they appear in. Let the fun begin!
