Pokémon HOME: update expected for September 22, new mobile version coming soon

Pokémon HOME

Pokémon HOME, the mobile and Switch app of the GameFreak franchise, will be updated on September 22, 2021. Precisely, the update is expected for 03:00 in the Italian morning. The end of maintenance time is instead scheduled for 08:00, always Italian morning.

According to what has been reported, with this update the development team is preparing for the arrival of the new mobile version of Pokémon HOME, which will be available within the same time indicated above. We currently do not know anything specific about this new version, which should be classified as 1.5, but it is credible that on September 22nd we will have new information about it, if not sooner.

We also know that Pokémon HOME will not work at I cast with Pokémon Shining Diamond and Shining Pearl, and not even Arceus. Compatibility will be activated only in 2022.

Pokémon Home: the logo If you don't know what Pokémon HOME is, you should know that it is a "bank" service that allows you to move your Pokémon from a game of the saga to the other, as long as the game is supported and that the specific creature can be passed into the next chapter of the series. This is a service available in both free and paid versions.

Pokémon HOME to undergo server maintenance next week

Pokémon HOME will be down for server maintenance for a few hours next week.


The maintenance will take place from 8pm CT on Sept. 21 to 1am CT on Sept. 22, according to Serebii. All HOME services will be down during this time, meaning players won’t be able to access the app or their Pok√©mon until the maintenance is finished. The outage will affect the Switch version of the app as well as its Apple and Android versions. After the maintenance is complete, mobile users will be able to update their app to version 1.5.


Players are hoping that the maintenance will bring additional storage space or other new features, but this seems unlikely. The Pok√©mon Company hasn’t announced any new features recently. And even if it had, server maintenance normally doesn’t bring new content to apps and games. Players are also hoping that this process will get the game ready for Pok√©mon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, which are set to launch this November.


HOME’s maintenance will coincide with maintenance on Pok√©mon UNITE, which is set to launch its mobile version around the time of the fixes. UNITE will be down from 4pm CT on Tuesday, Sept. 21 to 2am CT on Wednesday, Sept. 22.
