Pokémon HOME has proven a useful tool for players. Letting you transfer Pokémon between different entries from one central app, a new update has gone live for Android and iOS. If you've been using HOME on Switch, this hasn't been made available yet for console players.
Coming in as a quick 63MB update, HOME's new features include:
- A “Receive all Pokémon” feature has been added to the Wonder Box.
- The date a Pokémon was first met is now displayed in its Trainer notes.
- From the “OT” (Original Trainer) field in a Pokémon’s detailed information, you can now search for Pokémon with the same original Trainer.
- You can now specify “Language” and “Poké Ball” when searching for Pokémon.
Given that The Pokémon Company were recently threatening a crackdown on Pokémon Sword and Shield and Pokémon HOME users - namely those using "altered data" - we're surprised that nothing has been added on that front, though it could just be a matter of time.
Will these new features prove useful in Pokémon HOME? Let us know down below.
Can't organize properly the boxes using home mobile, this would be a real useful feature.
I didn’t think you could organise the boxes on Switch either or am I missing something? 🤞🏻
The "Receive all Pokémon" Wonder Trade feature is really nice. No more sitting and waiting for each session to end before you move onto the next one until all 10 are done.
@Fandabidozi it's not an automatic organisation like in Go (which is what I would want) but in switch you can properly define them by boxes, which you can't on mobile
@Citano < - THIS! So much! Having to watch the animation every single time is why I largely stopped using it...
Yup I thought so. I just wanna be able to sort my boxes permanently into Nat Dex order. It seems like the most obvious thing anyone would want. 🤷🏻♂️
Nice additions, but far more needed on the Switch version where any real sorting and searching takes place. Thanks to a rather strained UX, the mobile side is little more than a trading app in my experience.
@Fandabidozi it's basically everything I always wanted
