This has been announced by The Pokemon Company and Nintendo Pokémon house v.2.0 which adds two additional games compatible with cloud service app.
The latest version of Home lets you connect Pokemon Legends: Arceus, as well as Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, to previous games like Pokemon Sword and Shield, Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu and Eevee, and Pokemon Go.
The update will be released in the coming weeks.
If you’re unfamiliar with Pokemon Home, you can continue your Pokemon adventures beyond a single game system while managing your collection of creatures across many games. However, the Pokemon you can take to each game is limited to the Pokemon that appear in those games. You can view the details of which ones can be taken to which games in the help menu of the mobile version of the app.
With the update comes the introduction of Strange Balls. Since Pokemon Legends: Arceus is set in the distant past, Poke Balls from the other games don’t exist yet. When creatures captured in Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl or Sword and Shield are transferred to Arceus, they appear in Strange Balls.
Strange Balls only appear in Pokemon Legends: Arceus and Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. All Pokemon caught in Arceus that are carried over to Sword or Shield appear in regular Pokeballs. That means once the update goes live, you’ll be able to see the Poke Balls the creatures were originally trapped in.
To celebrate the addition of Arceus and Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl to Pokemon Home, Nintendo is giving away a special Pokemon if you link each game to the app.
After discarding a Pokemon from Arceus in the Switch version of Home, you’ll receive Rowlet, Cyndaquil, and Oshawott with maximum effort levels as Mystery Gifts in the mobile version of Home. If you deposit a Brilliant Diamond or Shining Pearl Pokemon in the Switch version of Home, you’ll get Turtwig, Chimchar, and Piplup with hidden abilities as Mystery Gifts in the mobile version of Home.
The moves your Pokemon can learn in Arceus, Brilliant Diamond, and Shining Pearl, and Sword and Shield are different than those they can learn in other games. This means that the Pokémon’s moves will not be reflected if it is transferred to another game. When it is first taken to another game, the moves available are determined by its level. However, if you bring it back into the game it was originally trapped in, it will again have the moves it originally knew.
