Ver. 1.2.1 (Released December 8, 2020)

  • For some Pokémon that are transferred from Pokémon GO, we have added a process where “moves that originally shouldn’t be learned” are forgotten and “moves that should originally be learned” are learned.
    • This processing has been added to handle the issue that was occurring between November 11-16, 2020 where “Pokémon that were being transferred from Pokémon GO to Pokémon HOME could learn “moves” that they were originally not supposed to learn”. (The issue that was causing this problem has already been fixed.)
    • In order to perform this process, there is a need to link the “Pokémon Sword/Shield” and “Pokémon HOME” where the target Pokémon exists and to save the game data.
  • We also fixed a number of issues so that gameplay is more enjoyable.
