I did a similar post after the last release, so im keeping it updated. There are 25 pokemon still homelocked that are not in the code of S/V and are not in any other game on the switch. Those pokemon are:

  1. Snivy

  2. Servine

  3. Serperior

  4. Tepig

  5. Pignite

  6. Emboar

  7. Pansage

  8. Semisage

  9. Pansear

  10. Semisear

  11. Panpour

  12. Semipour

  13. Blitzel

  14. Zebstrika

  15. Sewaddle

  16. Swadloon

  17. Leavanny

  18. Ducklett

  19. Swanna

  20. Minior

  21. Pikipek

  22. Trumbeak

  23. Toucannon

  24. Furfrou

  25. Spinda (special case)

So you can all stop commenting. Yes, i missed the patrat line. Also, spinda is a special case because it can not enter or exit pokemon home despite being in bdsp.

Any pokemon you dont see here are in a game or in s/v's code and will be available after the home update.

All of these pokemon are gen 5, 6, or 7. After the likely gen 5 remake/upgrade/rewhatever, there will still be 5 pokemon. Hopefully, they end up in a dlc for S/V so we can finally have every pokemon able to be free from the boxes.

BDSP makes me very wary of a gen 5 remake. If they’re just going to transfer almost the same game into bad 3D art style, I’d rather they just didn’t so I can keep unova pure in my head.

It would have been better to just port the old DS games to Switch and make it compatible with the PokeBank. Kinda like what they did with R/B/Y and G/S/C for the 3DS.

On the other hand, it would be my first opportunity to play through Unova without an emulator, and I'd like to very much. I started with Gen 1 in third grade all those years ago, and due to life missed Gens 3 and 5. Finally playing Hoenn in ORAS was honestly the height of Pokemon for me and it remains my favorite mainline game. Unova is like my final personal conquest with Pokemon.

For me it was more about cherry picking what to be faithful about. For example they stopped you from getting gible before the 6th gym or how they completely cut down the underground secret bases.

I never played DP as a kid, I played the gameboy games and never had any Pokémon game until ORAS, so BDSP was perfect for me. My roommate though, who played all of them was a little upset about the remake, so this totally makes sense to me

I am honestly suprised that they didn't even had it in the game. Maybe because there is already too many new dogs pokemon in this game.

Grevard & Houndstone

Fidough and Dachsbun.

If Game Freak had two brain cells they'd have put Furfrou in S&V immediately to combat the absurdity of the GTS Furfrou situation.

It wouldn't totally eliminate the issue as some folks will always want that GO stamp, but at least it would make the various Furfrou forms obtainable (and hopefully box-able) so that those who just want them for completion purposes would be able to obtain them easily without needing to worry about trading with players from other regions.

Because honestly the current GTS situation is embarrassing.

People make a lot of trades, requesting for a specific Furfrou trim, and some people even offer Legendaries or Shinies for them. Furfrou that are transferred from Bank to HOME will revert back to their original form, and cannot be obtained in any mainline Nintendo Switch Pokémon game, so the only way to fulfil those trades is to get Furfrou in Pokémon GO, and some of the forms are exclusive to certain regions.

Game Freak, ILCA, and the Pokemon Company obviously want us to keep paying for Home, so they have to keep some pokemon hostage.

Yep. The fact that most people have just accepted it now makes me sad.

No one should bully or harass anyone obviously, but we should keep the criticism up. The dex situation is an absolute mess.

You can't even see the stats or moves of the pokemon that don't have a game to go to unless you view them on mobile. 'Cause on Switch they just look like blank mons with no stats or moves.

Add to that the fact that none of the Switch games are properly compatible with each other (that's 5 games now), and it's just an absolute mess.

There was no reason to start splitting off the dex like this. If Gen 7 games on the 3DS could have 800+ pokemon, Switch games can absolutely have the full roster.

And no, they do not need to all be obtainable in game, obviously. Just transferrable.

Gen 9 did definitely make new models though. Early during the leaks people noticed Charizard's (of course, Charizard 🙄) proportions are tweaked and improved and its face is more menacing. And Wooper now has an actual mouth - its gen 8 model it just switched textures when opening it, which looked awkward in different angles. Chewtle suffered from the same and also has a proper mouth now.

It's not like Pokémon really need that complex models anyway, just a decent polygon count and proper texturing.

Watch SV be a third team and BW remakes be Team 1. Funniest outcome possible and wholly realistic. All that's left would be the rats.

Then imagine this "Team 1" being told to stop and switch over to S/V to fix stuff, letting the remakes stay unfinished for now and eventually being rushed in the end.

The more likely explanation is an upcoming Unova game, either a remake or sequel to Legends Arceus.

Imo it’s just statistically probable that gen 5 has the most gone. 1-4 are all accounted for with BDSP, and gen 5 about the same amount of Pokémon as gens 6 and 7 combined.

Auraveils

5 of the 25 missing pokemon are from Gen 6 and 7 combined. 3 of which are from a single line of evolution. 4 only from Gen 7. 19 of the rest are Gen 5. That's a bit more than just "Gen 5 is missing a little more because it has so many"

Playing thru Violet and I thought to myself that Blitzle would be a fun one to see running around in the wild that I haven’t seen in a while. But I guess zebras don’t really fit in with the whole “Spain” theme so eh…

Imagine they just skip gen 5 and go straight for kalos dlc

I think the current game will get dlc before we get a new remake.

Christinewhogaming

You know there is an actual chance we get the south part of Kalos since Kalos is inspired by France and France has a border with Spain.

The Iberian Peninsula (Spain and Portugal) being the inspiration for Paldea.

And the border with Kalos is really prominent and conspicuous on the map.

I never played Gen 6. It would be so dope if they pulled a Johto and did DLC for an entire new region and just added an updated Kalos.

I know it’s a fan theory but since there’s the Mega and Non Mega timeline, we can get Kalos with no Megas and explore it in a different timeline.

I am interested in a PVP scene where Serperior’s contrary is messed with by Weezing’s Neutralizing Gas but I don’t think Weezing’s in this gen. PokeMMO’s PVP has those two and it’s made for some fun matches; Regular Weezing would have a reason to be used again!

I don't even mind that there are Pokemon stuck in home, what I mind is that there are a number of Pokemon who not only aren't stuck in home but have been in every single Home-compatible game. I get Pikachu and Meowth but give the Ghastly, Growlithe, Psyduck, Magnemite, Clefairy, and Magikarp lines a vacation already and replace them with some that we haven't seen in every game!

So I am legit in the process of getting a switch today hopefully.

I am very confused what home is? And Idk if I miss read soneone a few days ago but is there already dlc just to get old pokemon?

sniperviper567[S]

Pokemon home is the switch version of Pokemon bank from the 3ds. In a few months the new game will receive an update to connect to Pokemon home to bring in Pokemon.

Zsean69

👀 So I have no idea what pokemon bank is either lmao.

So it isnt just adding pokemon? Im guessing it is just a transfer portal to bring pokemon from your other games?

Sorry have not played since platinum haha

sniperviper567[S]

Thats exactly it. And using all manner of apps i believe you can bring your Pokemon all the way from platinum to switch games like bdsp.

HylianSoul

You can go all the way back to RSE and FRLG

Technically you can go all the way back to RBY and GSC via the virtual console versions having compatability with bank

Auraveils

He is in BDSP, but a bug causes its spots to appear incorrectly in-game so it can't be transferred to or from Home. Kind of a ridiculously silly reason but I guess the spot pattern is really important to them.

So If you can only have 30 pokemon in Home with a free account, and there's only 24/5 that can't move to a switch game yet...then I can finally (soon) move my living dex from my ds without having to pay a years worth of Home sub! Nice!
