Pokemon Scarlet & Violet compatibility with Pokemon Home may be closer than you think
Recently, a Reddit user going by the name of fleker2 shared a post that has gotten a lot of people excited about Pokemon again. According to the post, Nintendo will host a new Pokémon Presents event on May 2. One of the major announcements at the event is that compatibility between Gen 9 games and Pokémon Home will arrive on May 12, 2023, along with other new details about the franchise and the Scarlet and Violet DLC.
This is reportedly not the only piece of information Nintendo plans to release on May 2. The leak suggests that the company will reveal information about the upcoming Shiny version of Goomy and the GO Fest Summer 2023 event in Pokémon GO. The rumored event will also feature discussion of Pokémon Sleep and its compatibility with Pokémon GO Plus in advance of its release later this Summer.
The first DLC for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, Treasures of Area Zero: The Teal Mask, appears to be the main focus. We’ll learn more about the previously announced Pokémon at the Pokémon event before the expansion launches this fall. The event could also reveal the previously leaked Cryolization Phenomenon, a variation on the regular Terastallization effect found in Paldea. This effect, like Gigantamax in Gen 8, is expected to change the forms of certain Pokémon.
The leak further cites that an event involving Walking Wake and Iron Leaves will take place in the Pokémon League right after the trailer for The Teal Mask is released. When it comes to Pokémon Home, not only will it be compatible with Gen 9 games, but Nintendo will also announce an event with a special marked version of Iron Valiant for Scarlet and Roaring Moon for Violet.
As of right now, that’s all we have on the Pokemon Scarlet and Violet leak. While it’s still unclear how credible the leak is, we can expect Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet compatibility with Pokémon Home to arrive soon given that Nintendo hasn’t announced a delay.
