The Pokémon Company makes a correction
he Pokémon Company has just revealed that yesterday’s announcement — Pokémon HOME support for Scarlet & Violet will be live next week — was actually a mistake.
On Twitter, the company revealed that didn’t mean to share any news regarding HOME compatibility, and has now issued a correction (via Serebii). That means HOME compatibility will not be available on 23rd/24th May, but it “will come soon”, says TPC.
Here’s the statement in full:
“We put the cart before the Mudsdale!
Earlier we mistakenly posted that Pokémon HOME version 3.0.0 would launch on 23/24 May. However, the actual release date is yet to be announced. 3.0.0 is coming soon though, so please continue to follow our pages for more information!”No release date has been announced for Pokémon HOME’s 3.0 update, but we’ll let you as soon as there’s news. Check our original story below for what to expect…
Just in case you haven’t used Pokémon HOME before, this much-anticipated support will allow you to transfer your Pokémon to a shared app, where they can then be stored or subbed into prior Switch games in the series as long as they exist in the destination game.
According to Serebii.net, the support will also provide a Move Relearner so you can teach your teammates their old skills from the app along with some other handy features such as the ability to sort through a Pokémon’s game data on the fly and the ability to exchange Home points into League points.
