Pokémon Scarlet and Violet will be compatible with Pokémon Home as of May 24.
The Pokémon Company today announced that Pokémon Home, the Pokémon cloud storage service, will soon be compatible with its most recent generation of games, letting players bring their old pocket monsters to the Paldea region for the first time.
“After players link their game to Pokémon HOME, they will be able to transfer Pokémon from Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet to Pokémon HOME and bring select Pokémon from other games to the Paldea region,” said an official statement.

When you transfer a Pokémon into Scarlet or Violet, the specific mons Terra type will be determined by the pokémon’s original type or types. Additionally, you’ll get a free gift the first time you transfer a Pokémon from Scarlet or Violet into Pokémon Home – Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly with Hidden Abilities.
Players will also be able to convert Pokémon Home points into League Points and can view Scarlet and Violet-specific info within the Pokémon Hone app.
Another feature coming to Pokémon Home will allow users to change their Pokémon’s moves from within the app, meaning players can update their move lists before transfering them out of Home and into the games.
Pokémon Go players will also be able to transfer Gimmighoul (Roaming Form) into Pokémon Scarlet and Violet for the first time.
IGN’s Pokémon Scarlet and Violet review gave it 6/10 and said: “As a decades-long fan, I desperately want better for Pokémon, especially given how clear it is that the design fundamentals are absolutely there under the surface. But if you’re devoted to this series, as so many are, know that the proper care we’ve all come to expect has not been shown here.”
