Pokemon Scarlet and Violet should be transferrable to Pokemon Home sometime next spring.

Just days after people became obsessed with a new Pokemon evolution, Nintendo began handing out refunds on their recently released ones Pokemon Scarlet and violet Playing due to a series of technical issues plaguing the releases. Now the company has stated that the recently released game will become compatible pokemon home, Players can transfer their Pokémon between releases. No specific dates have been announced at this time, but it is expected that we will likely gain access to the service before Midsummer’s Eve (23 June) 2023.
According to Destructoid, both Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet not support Pokémon house – a cloud service for Nintendo Switch and compatible mobile devices, designed as a Pokemon storage and a place where all Pokemon can gather. However, The Pokemon Company stated that support for the cloud service will be available in Spring 2023.
However, it’s also worth noting that the transfers have some limiting factors. While it is entirely possible to transfer all eligible Pokémon to the Pokémon house Cloud service, transferring Pokémon between different games is limited only to the Pokémon that can appear in the receiving game. Despite the lack of a launch date, seasoned Pokémon trainers can’t wait for new titles to become compatible Pokémon housesince it’s the easiest way for trainers to get all three starter Pokémon.
Starter Pokémon inside Pokemon Scarlet and violet don’t actually spawn in the wild, so players basically stick with their original choice for a good portion of the game. Those interested in collecting all three starter Pokemon can do so by trading either locally or online, meaning you know someone willing to trade. The other way implies breeding a starter Pokemon, which would require the use of Ditto – a Pokemon that copies other Pokemon and is therefore capable of being a mother of a starter type.
The support for Pokémon house is a fantastic feature implementation for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet; Linking the games would allow players to bring their Pokémon from other games Pokemon Scarlet and violet and take them with you on new adventures. This is basically what we came closest to doing Pokemon metaverse. But as mentioned above, there are some limitations and incompatibilities between Pokemon generations and the new games.
Just like it at Pokémon sword and pokemon shield, Players cannot transfer every Pokémon Pokémon house into the latest generation of games — Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. Since there are over 1,000 Pokémon in the National PokeDex, Pokemon Scarlet and violet does not support Pokemon from all previous generations, only the Pokemon available in the Paldea region. These would be transferrable between the games and the Pokémon house cloud service.
It’s a bit unfortunate that players would have to wait for the feature to roll out, but it would allow players to enjoy the current content and give them ample time to get a full PokeDex in both Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.
But that aside, Nintendo still hasn’t pulled the game, suggesting the patch may be brewing in Nintendo’s workshop.
