Pokemon Home has added support for more Pokemon games with its new update 2.0 and you will earn a special bonus for linking these titles to the service. Transfer Pokemon from Brilliant Diamond / Shining Pearl or Pokemon Legends: Arceus to Pokemon Home and you will receive free starting Pokemon from the Sinnoh and Hisui regions.

Here’s how to get your free Pokemon.

How to get free Sinnoh appetizers

You can get free Turtwig, Chimchar and Piplup to deposit Pokemon from Brilliant Diamond or Shining Pearl.

Anyone who deposits Pokemon from Brilliant diamond or shining pearl games in Pokemon Home will receive the three starting Pokemon Sinnoh: Turtwig, Chimchar and Piplup. What makes these particular monsters special is that they all have their hidden abilities that are usually hard to find.

To get a free start, first run Pokemon Home on the Nintendo Switch, then connect to the Pokemon Brilliant Diamond or Shining Pearl when prompted. Move each Pokemon from your game to Pokemon Home, then save and exit the service. Then open Pokemon Home on your mobile device and you will be greeted with a notification that free Pokemon are available in your mystery gift box.

How to get free appetizers for Hisui


Deposit Pokemon from Pokemon Legends: Arceus and get free Rowlet, Cyndaquil and Oshawott.

The company of Pokemon

Players who deposit a monster from Pokemon Legends: Arceus at Pokemon Home will receive three starting Pokemon from this game: Rowlet, Cyndaquil and Oshawott. These three monsters also have a special feature. Each Pokemon has maximum levels of effort, which makes them stronger than those you can catch in the wild.

The process for getting Hisui free appetizers is the same as above. Open Pokemon Home on the Nintendo Switch, then connect to Pokemon Legends: Arceus. After transferring the Pokemon from the game to the service, launch the mobile version of Pokemon Home and you will see a message that the Pokemon are available in your mystery gift box.

Free launchers are being handed out to celebrate the release of the Pokemon Home 2.0 update, which added the ability to transfer and store Pokemon by Brilliant Diamond, Shining Pearl and Pokemon Legends: Arceus. You can read more details about the update on the official Pokemon website.

Pokemon Home is available on Nintendo Switch and mobile devices. The service offers free and paid plans, the last of which costs $ 16 per year and offers advanced functionality. You can learn more about the service in our Pokemon Home Explanation.
