Pokémon Legends Arceus players and Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl players will get their money’s worth thanks to a new update for Pokémon Home. The application, which can be downloaded free of charge from Nintendo Switch, should receive a patch in the near future, which rewards players with rare Pokémon when they connect the latest games in the series with the service.
Players who connect Pokémon Legends Arceus receive the three starter Pokémon of the game-Rowlet, Cyndaquil and Oshawott-with maximum effort. Those who connect Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl receive the starter Pokémon of this game-Turtwig, Chimchar and Piplup-with activated skills. Effort levels and hidden skills are rare conditions that change values and lead to the development of much stronger Pokémon in the game.
To get the gifts, players have to store a Pokémon from one of the two games in their Switch version of Pokémon Home and then access their iOS or Android version in order to get their rewards in the form of “Mystery Gifts”. After that, it should be possible to download your new Pokémon from the Switch version to every compatible game, including Pokémon Sword and Shield.
The message comes via a blog post by The Pokémon Company with details about the upcoming update of Pokémon Home. After the update, Pokémon champions who they want to catch should have access to every generation of Pokémon titles, even though it could be a kind of process to get Pokémon from previous titles in the series.
Players who own a Nintendo 3DS can download Pokémon Bank for free until the Nintendo 3DS eShop closes in March 2023, after which you can get your Pokémon from 3DS titles such as X and Y, Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire and all four editions of Sun and Moon. By using the Poké Transporter add-on application, players can also access Pokémon from the black and white series and the earliest titles of the series via the 3DS Virtual Console.

Pokémon Home also offers connectivity between previous switch titles such as Pokémon Let’s Go Eevee! And let’s go pikachu! as well as the popular mobile game Pokémon Go. For free users, home enables up to 30 Pokémon to be saved at the same time, while users of the Premium Plan have space to save up to 2,000 Pokémon in the app.
It remains to be seen which rewards the players of the future titles Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet expect if these games are reported to be released later in the year. In the meantime, it seems that Pokémon Unite player has to earn their rewards on the hard tour by climbing the Championship Series for a much more tangible-but only also desirable-$ 1 million price.
