With Pokemon Home, players can store and transfer Pokemon from one game to another. Players are wondering when Scarlet and Violet Pokemon Home compatibility will arrive, so here’s what you need to know.

Pokemon Home offers fans of the franchise the ability to store their Pokemon from previous and current games in one place. With players now familiar with Scarlet and Violet‘s ninth generation of Pokemon, many are wondering when they’ll get the opportunity to utilize Pokemon Home.

The Pokemon Home companion app not only holds your Pokemon in storage, but it allows you to transfer Pokemon across titles. Pokemon Scarlet and Violet did not launch with Pokemon Home compatibility, but the devs confirmed that the feature is on the way, so here’s when it’s expected to arrive.

When is Pokemon Home coming to Scarlet & Violet?

Per an official Pokemon blog, compatibility between Pokemon Scarlet and Violet and Pokémon HOME is slated for spring 2023.

Once the two entities are compatible, you’ll have the opportunity to store your Scarlet and Violet Pokemon in Pokemon Home. This is extremely beneficial for those who want to start a new game of Scarlet and Violet but don’t want to lose their Pokemon.

On February 27, the Pokemon Day Pokemon Presents showcase reiterated an early 2023 arrival for the highly anticipated compatibility between Pokemon Home and Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.

In addition, you’ll also have the opportunity to transfer Pokemon from past games to Scarlet and Violet. However, the one catch is that the Pokemon you can transfer to the Paldea region are limited to ones that can appear in Scarlet and Violet.

This rule is essential when transferring Pokemon from past titles to new ones and it applies to every Pokemon game. Luckily, the Pokemon Scarlet & Violet DLC ‘The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero will bring 230 Pokemon to the game that previously could not be found in Paldea.
