There’s An Easy Way To Get Pokemon Scarlet/Violet Starters For Free
Levelling up all three starters in any Pokemon game takes time and effort, but Nintendo is offering a convenient shortcut for Pokemon Home users.
As announced in the above tweet, if you transfer a Pokemon from Scarlet or Violet into the mobile version of Pokemon Home, you’ll receive all three starters from that game: Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly. What’s more, those Pokemon will have hidden abilities such as Mystery Gifts, which is a nice perk.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet finally got Pokemon Home integration last month via a patch. Players can now put their beloved Pokemon from Scarlet and Violet into their collection. They can also put Scarlet and Violet Pokemon into previous games like Sword, Shield, and Legends: Arceus if those Pokemon are in the game’s cast already. Some fans were upset that it took six months to add this feature, but it’s better late than never.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet have been generally well-received by the franchise’s massive community. However, some players are still upset about the two games’ performance issues on Switch, which have not been fixed by patches as of this writing. It’s unclear if that will ever happen, though it’s worth noting that the two games will probably continue to receive patches in the coming months.
