Pokémon Home is a very promising application that allows Pokémon Trainers to store Pokémon they caught in different games inside the app. It already supports Pokémon Go. This article will tell you about the details of Pokémon Home compatibility with new games that were presented at Pokémon Presents showcase, Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl.
Pokémon Home compatibility with Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl
Pokémon Home is a cloud service that serves as the storage for Pokémon you caught in different games. The Pokémon Company has already declared that Pokémon Brilliant Diamond, Pokémon Shining Pearl, and even Pokémon Legends: Arceus is going to have Pokémon Home’s support. It means that Trainers will be able to use Pokémon Home as storage for Pokémon they caught in mentioned games.
The most interesting question is the way the games will be compatible with the application. With Pokémon Go, it works as a one-way transfer. You can store Pokémon you caught but use them only in Pokémon Go. But, all of the mentioned three games are going to take place in the Sinnoh region or its older medieval version the Hisui region. So, there is an interesting concept that might allow players to store Pokémon in one game then transfer it to another.
However, the balance problems that may appear with such a transfer system make this difficult to create. For example, catching a rare Pokémon in one game may not be so challenging as developers thought it would be, because you can go to another game where catching this Pokémon will be easier. So, it may allow you to transfer a rare Pokémon you caught in one game to another one where catching would be much problematic. So, given all these problems with balancing make this multi-transfer system difficult to create. But it would be great if The Pokémon Company could develop something like that.
