Pokémon Home has been an excellent app since its introduction, allowing players to store 6.000 Pokémon from across all generations. Players looking to purchase Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl along with Pokémon Legends: Arceus should now that Pokémon Home support for those titles will launch in 2022.

During today's Pokémon Presents, we saw brand new gameplay footage of Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl that looked stunning. Nintendo revealed that the undergound will be receiving a big overhaul in the form of Hideaways. These are new areas that feature Pokémon that can only be found in them, and the Hideaways change depending on how you decorate your secret base.

Nintendo also detailed Legends: Arceus even further, giving us our biggest look yet at the Sinnoh region, then called the Hisui region. Players will be tasked with building up the region's very first Pokédex. Legends: Arceus has been compared to Breath of the Wild for its open-world gameplay, a first for the Pokémon series.

Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl come to Nintendo Switch on November 19, 2021. Legends: Arceus will then follow on January 29, 2022.
