Update (Fri 19 May 2023 20:22 BST): Well…that was an exciting little over a day, wasn’t it? The Pokémon Company has just revealed that yesterday’s announcement that Pokémon HOME support for Scarlet & Violet will be available next week was actually a mistake.

Enabled Twitterthe company revealed that it wasn’t going to share any news regarding HOME compatibility and has now released a patch (via Serebius). That means HOME compatibility won’t be available on May 23-24, but it’s “coming soon,” according to TPC.

We submit the application in full:

“We put the wagon in front of Madsdale!

Earlier, we mistakenly reported that Pokémon HOME 3.0.0 would be released on May 23/24. However, the actual release date has not yet been announced. However, version 3.0.0 will be available soon, so please keep following our pages for more information!”

A release date for the Pokémon HOME 3.0 update has not been announced, but we’ll let you know as soon as we have news. Check out our original story below to find out what to expect…

Original article (Thursday 18 May 2023, 14:40 BST): The Pokémon Company has finally confirmed it Pokemon Scarlet and Violet will receive its long-awaited Pokemon HOME support next week from May 24.

We’ve been waiting a long time since the last connectivity update in February, but we’re guessing it’s still late May technically “beginning 2023”, right?

This was reported through an official representative @Pokemon The Twitter account from which we learned that connecting Scarlet and Violet to HOME comes with its own set of perks. This includes special forms of Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly with hidden abilities as mystery gifts in the mobile version of Pokémon HOME.

In case you haven’t used Pokémon HOME before, this long-awaited support will allow you to transfer your Pokémon to the shared app, where they can then be saved or added to previous Switch games in the series (Sword and shield, Legends: Arceus, A brilliant diamond and a shining pearl etc) as long as they exist in the destination game.

According to Serebii.netsupport will also bring Move Relearner so you can teach your teammates their old skills from within the app, as well as some other handy features like the ability to sort Pokémon game data on the fly and the ability to exchange Home Points for League Points.

It’s been a long wait, it’s true, but the wait is almost over. Be ready to start the transmission from May 24.
