Navigating the world of Pokemon can be complex, especially with the ever-evolving rules surrounding Pokemon Home transfers. To make things easier for our trainers, we’ve broken down the recent updates and their implications below:

Update for Pokemon Home 3.0.0 (Sep 13, 2023)

Home History Checks for Scarlet and Violet Transfers

The 3.0.0 update has ushered in a more stringent check system for transfers to Pokemon Home. This update emphasizes a Pokemon’s Home history:

  • Any transfer-only Pokemon lacking a valid history on Home will be prevented from moving.
  • Rawkhet ensures that all Pokemon remain legal within the game they’re purchased for. However, for those ordering transfer-only Pokemon, keep this new restriction in mind.
  • Good news: The risk of bans remains minimal. All Pokemon, deemed legal within their respective games, can still be used without any issue, even online.
  • Regrettably, it’s not possible for us to give Pokemon a valid Home history unless your order is dedicated to Pokemon Home.
  • Non-transfer-only Pokemon? Don’t sweat it! They are unaffected by this update.

Workload for Pokemon Home Orders

  • Due to the intricacies introduced with this update, our workload for Pokemon Home orders has essentially tripled.
  • Fear not! Rawkhet is committed to our trainers. We will bear this increase in workload without passing any extra cost to you.


Update for Pokemon Home 2.0.0 (May 18, 2022)

Transferring Between BDSP, Legends Arceus, and Home

The 2.0.0 update made it possible to transfer Pokemon between Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl (BDSP), Legends Arceus (LA), and Pokemon Home, but with some stipulations:

  • Trainers can only transfer one of each Legendary or Mythical Pokemon from their BDSP save file to Home and vice versa. For instance, if you’ve transferred an Arceus from BDSP to Home, you can’t move another Arceus to Home from that same BDSP save.
  • While there’s no cap on transfers from Home to BDSP, the reverse isn’t true.

Advice for Trainers with Rawkhet Purchases

If you’ve bought Legendary or Mythical Pokemon from Rawkhet and also want to transfer Pokemon you’ve captured during gameplay to Home, plan ahead! Decide which Pokemon you most want in Home to avoid transfer conflicts.
