Pokemon HOME September update changes
While the September 27 update does not have a long list of changes and fixes, the previous update did bring a few fixes and DLC transfer support. They are as follows:
- Fixed an issue in which Spinda would only appear with one specific pattern of spots when viewed on the status screen.
- Fixed an issue in which Pokémon transferred from Pokémon Legends: Arceus would be shown as unregistered in the National Pokédex under certain circumstances. (This was only a display issue. Users who experienced this issue do not need to transfer affected Pokémon into Pokémon HOME again.)
- Fixed an issue in which ribbons were not being displayed correctly on Pokémon status screens.
- Other issues have also been addressed in order to ensure a user-friendly experience.
- Also, Teal Mask transfer support.
