The ninth generation of Pokémon games is only a few weeks away. Players can dive into the Paldea region on Nov. 18 when Pokémon Scarlet and Violet launches on Nintendo Switch. Pokémon players who enjoy transferring their favorite Pokémon across each game will be excited to learn that the mobile app Pokémon Home will be receiving updates early next year.

Pokémon Home Scarlet and Violet Updates Slated for Early 2023

The Pokémon Company has announced that Battles Statistics for the upcoming Pokémon Scarlet and Violet games will soon be available to view in Pokémon Home. Users will also be able to view information about trainer rankings and online competitions. Other stats that will be viewable on Pokémon Home include frequently used Pokémon, moves, Abilities, and held items in battles. This update is scheduled to be released in early 2023.

Another update coming to Pokémon Home is aiming to be released in spring 2023 and will make the new Pokémon games compatible with Pokémon Home. After players link either Pokémon Scarlet or Pokémon Violet, they will be able to transfer Pokémon from the switch games to the app. Pokémon stored on the Pokémon Home app from previous games will then be able to be imported into either of the two Switch games.

No official release date is stated for these updates but with all the Pokémon content available this winter with upcoming Switch games along with the various Pokémon GO-related events, spring 2023 will be here before Pokémon fans will notice.
