Pokémon Scarlet and Violet has finally been released, and players are wondering if the games are compatible with Pokémon Home. Here's what we know so far.
Pokémon Home is a cloud service application for mobile devices and Nintendo Switch. Its main function is storing Pokémon, similar to storage boxes in the main games. As players can bring previous generation Pokémon into newer games using Pokémon Home, the opportunity to bring Pokémon not originally available in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet has players eager to know if the game will be compatible.
When is Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Coming to Pokémon Home?
Prior to Scarlet and Violet's release, an announcement regarding Pokémon Home compatibility was posted to the game's website. While the games will indeed be compatible with the service, the official update won't officially launch until Spring 2023.
Additionally, while older generation Pokémon can be brought to Scarlet and Violet, the full list of compatible Pokémon will be released at a later date. Nintendo has also noted that Pokemon Home will implement new features to its Battle Data function to include Generation 9 Pokémon, Trainer Rankings, frequently used Pokémon, and more information reflecting Scarlet and Violet gameplay.
As the intended launch date approaches, more news will be revealed about Pokémon Home's full capabilities with Scarlet and Violet.
