Despite the recent announcement of Pokémon Home would think of a total convergence of all the encyclopedia of the Pokémon in Pokémon Sword and Shield, it seems that not all of the old Pokémon are supported by the new game.
Pokémon with a Sword and Shield based on the new region, new Barge, characterized by a series of Pokémon completely new belonging tothe eighth generation, therefore, will clearly be a bestiary completely new and original. However, within this there will also be the Pokémon that are older and these can be especially imported by exploiting the new features Pokémon Home, which is presented as an evolution of the Pokémon Bank. Unlike the latter, however, it seems that this service does not allow you to transfer your all of the Pokémon within Pokémon with a Sword and Shield.
The reason for this limitation resides in the necessity of having to adapt to the best of each creature and play it, even in the best of ways. “We are now at over 800 Pokémon in the games and Game Freak really does pass a lot of time to develop the best ways to evolve in everything, even while preserving the quality of all the Pokémon, and taking into account the characteristics in the balancing of the battles on a vast range of creatures,” explained Junichi Masuda, during a recent stream Nintendo Treehouse at E3 2019, adding that “everything must be done in a time that is rather limited in order not to wait too the fans for every new chapter”.
Accordingly, there was no need to make a selection to have anything to do with the amount of work that is reasonable and not run into problems of balance: “We were very mindful of,” explained Masuda, to make “the best selection of Pokémon for this setting and for the new adventure”. It is confirmed however, is the presence of the Shiny Pokémon Let’s GO, and probably even Pokémon GO Pokémon Home.
