The Pokémon Company has officially confirmed the availability date for the connectivity upgrade for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet and Pokémon Home. Since Pokémon Scarlet and Violet’s release, fans have waited impatiently for compatibility with the storage app. Now that it has here, gamers may move their favourite pocket pets to and from the cloud.
Many players eagerly anticipate the compatibility update between Pokémon Scarlet and Violet and Pokémon Home. The anticipation for the function has reached such a level that players have actively circulated internet leaks of the Pokémon Home patch. The Pokémon Company also recently had an online blunder, releasing the incorrect release date for the update on their social media channels, adding fuel to the flames. The Pokémon Company appears to be ready to announce the precise date for the official distribution of the connectivity patch to the Pokémon community.
Pokémon HOME is a free download for iOS, Android, and Nintendo Switch. It is an interesting project for transferring Pocket Monsters, developed by ILCA and released by The Pokémon Company, with a variety of mainstream and other games tied to it.
Is there a Pokémon HOME Scarlet and Violet release date?
The expected release of Pokémon HOME version 3.0.0 is on May 24, 2023. This update is expected to establish a connection between HOME and Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. All Gen IX trainers will be happy to hear this news because they have been calling for it for a while.
The Pokémon Company announced on Twitter that version 3.0.0 of the Pokémon Home compatibility upgrade for Scarlet and Violet will be available to users by May 30, 2023. The business misspoke when it stated in a previous tweet that the upgrade will be accessible on May 24, 2023. Pokémon Home will reportedly be unavailable starting at 5:00 PM Pacific Time on May 29 and perhaps continuing until 11:00 PM Pacific Time on May 30 for maintenance. As a result, users are unable to access the app to make any transfers and must wait until the maintenance is finished before attempting to access their accounts.
Here is a list of the Pokémon HOME Version 3.0 maintenance times in other time zones to help you out:
|Time Zone||Maintenance Times|
|PT (US)||17:00 – 23:00 PM|
|ET (US)||20:00 PM – 02:00 AM|
|BST (BR)||21:00 PM – 03:00 AM|
|BST (UK)||01:00 – 07:00 AM|
|CEST (EU)||02:00 – 08:00 AM|
As it opens up a whole new realm of interaction with your favourite pocket monsters, the eventual introduction of the support will be excellent news for the countless players who have been waiting for the integration release date to arrive. Now that the release date is approaching quickly, you should start collecting so that your initial transfer has the greatest number of Pokémon.
Players will have to keep the following things in mind regarding the upcoming connectivity:
- While transferring Pocket Monsters, trainers cannot move Pokémon that are not innately present in the game they are transferring to. The example provided in the post states that players won’t be able to move Doliv to Pokémon Sword, Pokémon Shield, Pokémon Brilliant Diamon, Pokémon Shining Pearl, or Pokémon Legends: Arceus, but they can move a Pikachu to the same.
- The Tera Type of any Pocket Monsters that are moved to Paldea will be “determined by their original type or types.”
- Trainers will be able to convert Pokémon HOME points into League Points to use in Gen IX titles.
- Trainers will be able to “change a Pokémon’s summary page to display information from other games the Pokémon has been in.” They can also change the moves of Pocket Monsters while transferring them from HOME to a linked game.
- Trainers will be able to unlock stickers if they are able to complete specific challenges in the mobile version of Pokémon HOME. Users can use this to decorate their profiles.
- Once the update is complete, trainers will have permission to bring Gimmighoul (Roaming Form) from Pokémon GO to HOME and then transfer it to Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
Pokémon HOME backwards compatibility leak
The anticipation of Pokémon HOME support for Scarlet and Violet will only grow in light of a recent leak on probable backwards compatibility.
This is specifically from the leaker known as Khu’s trendy hat, who tweeted the image above of the Generation 2-era Time Capsule from Pokémon Silver, Gold, and Crystal.
For background, this technique is the only one in a Pokémon game that allows you to transfer Pocket Monsters to and from earlier games. As a result, players may have the opportunity to play Gen-1 Red, Blue (or Green), and Yellow games alongside Gen-2 Johto games.
Trainers will be qualified to receive a Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly with Hidden Abilities as Mystery Gifts after their first transfer of Pokémon to HOME once they have connected their Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. The mobile edition of Pokémon HOME will have prizes. According to the statement, players can only redeem them once per Pokémon HOME account.
Players are probably pleased with how quickly the situation was resolved, especially since many have been waiting to receive the promised Pokémon Scarlet and Violet starter rewards for transferring pocket creatures to Pokémon Home. The previous release date is only six days away from the official one. Many Scarlet and Violet gamers have probably been anticipating receiving an additional beginning Pokémon ever since the compatibility update was announced.
The community is hoping that The Pokémon Company won’t let them down once more with only a few days till the release of the eagerly anticipated Pokémon Home connectivity patch. Hopefully, the fan base’s trust in the firm is justified and they will finally get access to the update as the company promised.
Scarlet and Violet Pokémon are available on the Nintendo Switch.
