Original story follows.
The long-awaited update to bring Pokemon from Scarlet and Violet into the Pokemon Home system is out next week.
The Pokemon Company have announced that the update will go live on May 24, enabling the newest crop of Pokemon to be stored in the cloud. It was previously promised for “spring”.
Versions of the Scarlet and Violet starters with hidden abilities will be provided if a Pokemon from Scarlet or Violet is brought in.
Starting 5/24, get special Pokémon when you link Pokémon HOME with Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet!
You’ll be able to receive a Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly with Hidden Abilities as Mystery Gifts in the mobile device version of Pokémon HOME.#PokemonScarletViolet ❤️💜 pic.twitter.com/sL5v6mSqgT
