ORIGINAL STORY 12/5/22:
Pokémon Dwelling, the franchise’s creature storage app for Change and cell phones, will quickly add assist for brand spanking new releases Pokémon Legends: Arceus and Pokémon Good Diamond/Shining Pearl.
Assist for these video games – which was anticipated, however nonetheless not but dated – will arrive “within the coming weeks”, The Pokémon Firm mentioned in the present day.
It appears like Arceus’ story and mechanics have prompted just a few workarounds to the conventional Dwelling formulation – as already supported in Pokémon Sword/Protect, Let’s Go Pikachu/Eevee and Pokémon Go.
As Arceus takes place up to now, earlier than many Pokéball varieties existed, any Pokémon transferred into the sport from Dwelling will sit in a “Unusual Ball”. Across the different manner, Pokémon from Arceus might be transferred sitting in an everyday Pokéball.
A couple of different phrases of warning, from The Pokémon Firm: “Particular Pokémon that may solely be caught as soon as throughout common gameplay can solely be deposited as soon as per save knowledge to Pokémon Dwelling,” it says of Good Diamond/Shining Pearl.
As for Arceus: “The target of Pokémon Legends: Arceus is to assist compile the primary Pokédex within the Hisui area. As such, the Nationwide Pokédex in Pokémon Dwelling will replace its Pokédex entries based mostly in your completion of the Pokédex in your Pokémon Legends: Arceus save knowledge.
“If a Pokédex entry in Pokémon Legends: Arceus is incomplete, you will be unable to see that Pokémon’s entry in Pokémon Dwelling.”
Lastly, linking every recreation – Arceus, Good Diamond and Shining Pearl – to Dwelling will lead to a Pokémon as a reward by way of the Thriller Reward perform (one in all every recreation’s Starter creatures with most effort ranges or Hidden Talents).
We’ll replace when we’ve got a launch date for the Pokémon Dwelling replace, which is able to convey the service to model 2.0.
Not tried Arceus but? “Impressed as a lot by Pokémon Go as it’s Breath of the Wild, Pokémon Legends: Arceus is flimsy and compulsive – and exhilaratingly new,” we wrote in Eurogamer’s Pokémon Legends Arceus overview.
