Eh I don't imagine it to be any different in terms of quality.

I'm more concerned that The Pokemon Company had nothing to show for E3 this year? It's been at least 4 months since the last direct, not even an update is a bit odd.

I would've expected at least something for the DP remakes since they're coming out this year.

So I don't know if this can really apply but I'll see; what do people think are the best opening and endings to a Pokemon game? I've not played many but out of the ones I have I did really like the way XY starts where it's everyone starting out together as a group.

Pokemon Home Gets Major Update: Trade Across All Switch Games!

[Image: 01-en-th.jpg]

Version 2.0.0 is out, and with it comes the update everyone's been waiting for: trading across all the recent games! Yes, indeed, Pokémon Legends: Arceus, Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, Pokémon Sword and Shield will be mutually compatible with Pokémon HOME, and you will be able to deposit and withdraw Pokémon to and from each of these games. For example, you will be able to take a Pikachu that you caught in Pokémon Sword into Pokémon Legends: Arceus or Pokémon Brilliant Diamond/Shining Pearl.

Please note that transferring Pokémon to a game they were not originally caught in may cause certain changes to known moves, level, and what type of Poké Ball they were caught in Since Pokémon Legends: Arceus takes place in the distant past of the world of Pokémon, Poké Balls from the other games do not yet exist.*

To celebrate Pokémon Legends: Arceus, Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl becoming compatible with Pokémon HOME, you will be gifted special Pokémon when you link each game to Pokémon HOME.

When you deposit a Pokémon from Pokémon Brilliant Diamond or Shining Pearl to the Nintendo Switch version of Pokémon HOME, you will receive Turtwig, Chimchar, and Piplup with Hidden Abilities as Mystery Gifts in the mobile device version of Pokémon HOME.

If you deposit a Pokémon from Pokémon Legends: Arceus into the Nintendo Switch version of Pokémon HOME, you will receive Rowlet, Cyndaquil, and Oshawott with maximum effort levels as Mystery Gifts in the mobile device version of Pokémon HOME.


*So, when Pokémon caught in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond, Pokémon Shining Pearl, Pokémon Sword, or Pokémon Shield are transferred to Pokémon Legends: Arceus, they will appear in Strange Balls. Likewise, when Pokémon caught in Pokémon Legends: Arceus are transferred to Pokémon Brilliant Diamond or Pokémon Shining Pearl, they will also appear in Strange Balls. When transferred to Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield, however, they will appear in standard Poké Balls.

I never understood why Pokemon Home always took forever for it to update to use on newer Pokemon games when your like paying for it. It was this way when I was paying for Pokemon Bank. Still, since I've been using Pokemon Bank/Home I just waited for the update before I moved over Pokemon to the games I've played before so I don't have to go catch them all since it's just easier to get them from the bank for me. So far it's been nice. I just need to see about getting the genies since Pokemon Legends Arceus is a pain in the ass to catch 'em.

I imagine it has to do with the fact that each of the new games has different properties and coding applied to them that would make it next to impossible to just easily transfer over. Especially in a game like Legends Arceus, where A LOT of things have changed mechanically and pictorially. Even Brilliant Diamond/Shining Pearl were essentially freshly coded games because it wasn't GameFreak doing them so they had to essentially replicate what GameFreak have already done (which was apparently already a taped-together mess and has been for years).

Game dev is very hard, it turns out. Shrug

I wonder if these games in particular took longer to get integrated with Home because if I'm not mistaken, aren't these the only games that lack a complete Pokedex of every Pokémon that exists before their creation? Although I don't see why whatever limiters are used on the older games to stop non-existent Pokémon being into them weren't able to just easily be slapped onto these games, and the other reason I can think of doesn't really make sense either which is that these are all Switch titles, while everything in Home before this update was a 3DS title. Does anyone know if Home functioned on Switch before now? Unsure

Home update aside, I saw discussion about trainer ages today in the wake of the new Scarlet/Violet trailer and saw quite a few comments claiming the XY protagonists to be the oldest at 17-18, followed by BW at like 16. I couldn't find anything that official gives the ages of any of the trainers, but I can at least believe BW's protagonists to be 16 considering their appearances, but I find it hard to believe XY's protagonists are older. Hmm
Also, does anyone here really care how old the protagonists are in these games? I feel like their age doesn't matter because it doesn't play any role in the story and won't change what tone a particular game wants to take. Pokémon is clearly happy with coming up with dark and twisted stuff and the only thing that has any bearing on its prominence is the target audience of the games or other media.

Where's the citation on X and Y protags being the eldest? I've only ever read about the Black and White ones being canonically the eldest of them all, and everyone else practically children. Well, I mean 16 is still a child, but ya know what I mean.

As for Home being on Switch, it was? You just couldn't transfer between games. You could put a Pokemon in from GO or Sword and those would talk to each other but nothing else did. It was odd.

This was why I broached the subject here. For every comment I saw making the claim on the ages of the XY protags, I never once found a source for the information. At one point a tweet got linked that contained the ages, but it's just some random person listing ages they claim were on Wikipedia, but I have not once seen an age attached to any of the characters on Wikipedia nor any other Pokemon Wiki such as Serebii or Bulbapedia. So I was curious if anyone here believes the XY protags can be the oldest or even close to the ages of the BW protags, because I felt like the claims were pure bullshit.

Oh, I think I misunderstood the Home update then. I thought that none of the games pictured had any functionality with Home until now, and so I thought Home wasn't on Switch until now either because it would have had no use on there. I realize now this update is adding the ability to transfer Pokémon between games and not just be storage. XD
