Since Pokémon Shining Diamond and Shining Pearl accompany Pokémon Go as the most important games in the series at the moment, many are eager to know how these titles will interact with each other. Since Pokémon Go eventually offered a transfer option to Pokémon Sword and Shield, it looks like the franchise will go the same way with the new main titles.



At present, there are no features that allow mobile game users to connect or interact with Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. However, it is confirmed that the new Switch games will have compatibility with Pokémon Home at some point in 2022. Ultimately, this means that players will be able to send certain Pokémon from Go to Brilliant Diamond and Brilliant Pearl in due course.

For those who haven't used Pokémon Home, it's a Switch and mobile app that functions as a database capable of storing and transferring acquisitions from Pokémon Go and previous major titles to Sword and Shield. However, since only Pokémon featured in the National Sword and Shield Pokédex are transferable in the games, the same restriction is likely to apply to Brilliant Diamond and Brilliant Pearl.

Pokémon Go users can prepare for this feature in advance by sending catches via the Go teleporter and at home. However, think twice before doing this, as these Pokémon cannot be brought back to Go after doing so.

More details will be announced in the future.
