When Will Pokemon Scarlet & Violet Be On Pokemon Home?

Fans that utilize the free-to-access service Pokemon Home are likely wondering when they can start transferring their Pokemon from Scarlet and Violet. Fortunately, we have the answer.

Whether it’s to store them in between starting a new game or to transfer them to a previous title, Pokemon Home allows you to store and transfer your Pokemon between games.

However, the service currently does not allow players to upload their Pokemon from Scarlet and Violet. So, it makes sense that fans eager to preserve their team would want to know when it will be possible.

Of course, if you are wanting to save your Pokemon because you’re thinking of starting over, then make sure you know how to restart your save in Scarlet and Violet.

When Is Pokemon Scarlet & Violet Coming to Pokemon Home?

Players will be able to move their Pokemon from Scarlet and Violet to Pokemon Home in Spring 2023, according to Nintendo.

Unfortunately, no confirmed date has been announced. However, fans can expect the games to be available on Pokemon Home sometime between March 2023 and June 2023.

The free-to-access service is not yet compatible with Scarlet and Violet. So, fans hoping to transfer their Pokemon will have to wait a little while.

When an official release date is revealed, we will update this article.

What Pokemon Can You Transfer From Scarlet & Violet to Pokemon Home?

Players can transfer all of their Pokemon from Scarlet and Violet to Pokemon Home. They can store them there and transfer them back to Scarlet and Violet at any point.

However, they cannot transfer any Generation 9 Pokemon from Scarlet and Violet to other Pokemon games. This includes any Pokemon exclusive to Scarlet and Violet.

The Starter Pokémon Posing

The official Scarlet and Violet website states that the Pokemon you can transfer between games via the service can only be Pokemon that appear within those games.

So, you won’t be able to send a Sprigatito to Pokemon Sword and Shield. Similarly, you won’t be able to send any Pokemon from Sword and Shield that don’t appear in Scarlet and Violet.

Can You Use Pokemon Home to Transfer Between Pokemon Legends: Arceus & Scarlet and Violet?

You will be able to transfer any compatible Pokemon between Scarlet and Violet and Pokemon Legends: Arceus through the Pokemon Home service.

The Pokemon you will be able to transfer will be strictly limited to those that are available in both games. So, for example, you can’t transfer Koraidon to Legends: Arceus.

Is Pokemon Home Free?

Pokemon Home is a free service that allows non-paying users to store 30 Pokemon. Free users can also only deposit a singular Pokemon on the service’s Global Trade System.

However, there is a Premium tier that costs $3 for one month or $16 for a year. It allows users to store 6,000 Pokemon and deposit three on the GTS.

So, in essence, Pokemon Home is free. However, if you want to transfer a lot of Pokemon from across all of the mainline games, then you will likely need to pay for the Premium tier.
