Pokemon Home will launch some new features next month, and they will also provide two free-entry Pokemon. These features themselves are relatively small, and the real appeal of the update is that they will come with some special and free Pokemon for players to add to their collection, especially Bulbasaur and Squirtle.
Both will be added as mysterious gifts, which can be obtained through the mobile version of Pokemon Home or Pokemon Sword and Shield. Since they are starter Pokemon and usually cannot be caught in the wild, these two are very rare in most games. However, it is not a big problem now, because they can be found in the wild.
However, what makes these special Bulbasaur and Squirtle stand out is that they will carry the Gigantamax factor, which means that once they evolve into Venusaur and Blastoise, respectively, they can naturally enter their unique Gigantamax form. But the player can only get one of them.
Players can capture Bulbasaur or Squirtle in another game and transfer them to Pokemon Sword and Shield. So, although this is never impossible, these mysterious gifts skip all the tediousness and allow players to focus on upgrading their final evolution.
If anyone wants to know why Firestarter Charmander is not included, it is because Charmander with Gigantamax factor is already available in Sword and Shield. After defeating the champion Leon, after visiting his home, players will find a Charmander there as a gift. When it evolves into Charizard, it can become Gigantamax, just like Leon's own Charizard.
The first new feature of Pokemon Home is a Catch Calendar. This will allow users to track when they caught their Pokemon and can be used to set anniversaries. The second is just an updated Pokedex, which allows users to check the Pokemon registered to it from different angles.
There is also a faster and more convenient way to obtain Bulbasaur and Squirtle through MMOSO.
