Pokémon Home

The Pokémon Company have announced that there would be maintenance for Pokémon Home on March 5th/6th (check out this page for more details). The goal is to fix a couple of issues:

  • players who completed their National Pokédex before February 14th received a glitched Magearna as reward. Once the maintenance is over, a fixed Magearna will be sent to eligible players via their Gift Box. Players who already received their gift will have their data updated to fix the issue;
  • an issue caused Pokémon Home to fail to recognise whether a Pokédex has been completed or not, preventing players who completed it from claiming their gift. A future update will correct the conditions for completing the Pokédex, making it possible for impacted players to receive their gift.
