The long-awaited Pokemon Home app has finally released worldwide; along with the new colourful characters we have met (Grand Oak); the app has made Pokemon transferring a lot easier. 

Although your experience with Pokemon Home may vary, there has been a universally loved component that happens to come with the app.


With the Pokemon DLC, Isle of Armor, releasing in the coming months, many fans are wondering what kind of Pokemon will be catchable in these new regions. Turns out some classic Pokemon will be making a return to Pokemon Sword and Shield.

Let's take a look at how to get Bulbasaur and Squirtle!

Be sure to watch our wide variety of Pokemon content here!


The Kanto region starter Pokemon is without a doubt the most well known and perhaps liked Pokemon of all time; their iconic designs are unrecognizable, even among non-Pokemon fans.  

Many Sword and Shield fans are well aware that the champion of the Galar Region Leon, has a Charizard as his primary Pokemon; and even during the post-game, you can receive a Charmander from him. 

With one of the Kanto starters already in the game, fans were wondering when we would be able to somehow get the other Kanto starters in Sword and Shield and for future DLC such as Isle of Armor.
