Will Pokemon Legends: Arceus be Compatible With Pokemon Home

Pokemon Legends: Arceus continues to be the talk of the Pokemon community, as it will be the first open-world game in the franchise that will also be incorporating plenty of Pokemon from the past and present.


Fans are pretty excited to see what kind of gameplay features are going to be implemented in Pokemon Legends: Arceus, even if it means delaying the game to a later date because that would mean perfecting the mechanics and framerate, which was pretty rough in the trailer.

Will Pokemon Legends: Arceus be Compatible With Pokemon Home

However, with Pokemon Home recently coming out to make transferring Pokemon from previous games a bit easier, many have wondered if the service will be applicable with Pokemon Legends: Arceus.

Many have assumed that the answer would be “yes” since this is a newer service and should be compatible with all Pokemon games, like the upcoming remakes for Diamond and Pearl, but that might not be the case.

You see, Pokemon Legends: Arceus is set in the distant past of Pokemon when a Pokedex doesn't exist yet, and judging by the trailer, it looks like the setting is based on ancient Japan.

Due to the setting, we might not have PCs in Pokemon Legends: Arceus, which might mean no means for trading or transferring games, unless they implement some sort of in-game system.

It’s worth noting that Pokemon Legends: Arceus is just one game so there might not be a need to transfer Pokemon to other games in the series, though fans would really like that.

Only time will tell if Game Freak ends up adding something that links to Pokemon Home but we’ll wait and see.

Pokemon Legends: Arceus is slated for release on Nintendo Switch sometime in 2022.
