Whenever a new Pokémon game releases, there is only one question on the lips of veteran players. Is it possible to transfer Pokémon from previous generations into the new game?
Shiny hunters, perfect IV enthusiasts, and those with sentimental attachments to starter Pokémon will always want the pride of their Pokémon collection to be playable on the newest software. Game Freak has become consistently better at allowing this over the years, making transfers more direct without the need to play a pointless catching minigame.
Technically, through the use of the 3DS virtual console games, it is possible to transfer a Pokémon all the way from Generation 1 Red and Blue titles to Scarlet and Violet.
Game Freak has already confirmed that Pokémon Home will be coming to Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, so let's find out when!
When Is Pokémon Home Coming To Pokémon Scarlet And Violet?
Pokémon Home is coming to Pokémon Scarlet and Violet in Spring 2023. This is based on the statement made by the official Pokémon Scarlet and Violet website.
However, there are a few caveats that come with this. Firstly, not every Pokémon is eligible to be transferred. Ever since Pokémon Sword and Shield introduced the culling of the Pokédex, only a select batch of creatures is included in each new game (with more added in DLC).

Here is a list of the 119 Pokémon confirmed to be compatible with Pokémon Home in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet:
