The latest update to the Pokémon HOME mobile app has arrived. As of May 22, 2020, players can update to 1.1.0. This update is fixing a few bugs, including a bug that prevented information concerning Gigantamax Alcremie from being registered. This update also implements the Battle Data feature. This feature, which was announced prior to the launch of Pokémon HOME, provides information on current Ranked Battles and various Online Competitions in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, as well as the rankings of the Pokémon being used in those battles and competitions. Players can see the battle records of other Trainers, as well as information about what moves are popular among the Pokémon in the competitions.
To celebrate this update, for a limited time only, some restrictions on trading are being lifted. The following changes have gone into effect with the update to 1.1.0:
- Trainers can now use Friend Trade to trade Pokémon with their Friends regardless of the distance.
- The time needed to complete trades through the Wonder Box has been shortened.
- The number of free Room Trades Trainers can join has been increased from three rooms to ten.
- The times when Trainers can join Rooms and select Pokémon have been shortened.
