Pokemon Home

The mobile version of Pokémon HOME is receiving a welcome update next month that'll add new features and reward players with two special Pokémon.

Firstly, a new 'Catch Calendar' feature will allow you to view your Pokémon arranged by the dates on which you caught them. The idea here is that you'll be able track when you caught your very first Pokémon, right up until the day you finally grabbed the biggest, baddest Legendary around. It'll also let you set special dates like anniversaries, your birthday, and the day you first met your favourite Pokémon.

It'll also update the Pokédex functionality inside the app; after installing the update, you'll be able to view Pokémon from different angles, giving you a "better look" at each and every monster in your collection.

As for the special Pokémon? Well, the new update also brings with it a Bulbasaur and a Squirtle, both of which can be transferred to your copy of Pokémon Sword or Shield, and both of which can Gigantamax when fully evolved. If you've already got the special Gigantamax Charmander from Leon in-game, you'll soon have a full set.

No specific date has been provided for this update just yet, but June's only around the corner.

Today's been a pretty big day for Pokémon news; earlier, the release dates for three upcoming Pokémon games were revealed, alongside their boxarts.
