I hope the SWSH DLC helps players natively catch some of these pokemon with a million different forms. I never managed to complete my Vivillon collection and I don't own a copy of XY anymore. Unown ! and ? shape haven't been available since ORAS either.

If you still own a SuMo or USUM save, I suggest you collect or transfer the different Minior colors and Flabebe family's flower colors while you still have access to Bank.

EDIT: I forgot the different Deerling and Sawsbuck forms are locked behind gen 5 too.

I sure hope they fix room trades soon, shit is completely non functional. Friend trades also doesn't work, so trading anything that's not transferable to the games has been impossible to me.
It stinks when they make early adopters Guinea pigs.

I think server side their more focused on transfers then everything else. Which to be fair, its probably better to make sure people aren't losing their Pokemon.

I hope to transfer my shiny breeded Greninja from XY as soon as possible.

Anyway, am I wrong or the Pokemon Go connection is not yet available? Also, I don't understand why I can't access to all the features of Pokemon Home from only one app. The Switch app is missing features that are present in the Android app and vice-versa, WHY!?!?!

Go support is coming later. You can still transfer some Pokémon from Go to Let's Go, and from Let's Go to Home in the meantime though.

I got an A-Z Unown Collection from VC Silver. Never found the specific Mirage Island in ORAS to get ! and ?. Managed to get ! in the GTS yesterday, but not yet ? Unown.

Vivillon I'm scavening the GTS right now. Managed to get about 8 forms.

Now the flowers... I got them all in all of its stages in Y way back then, but didn't evolve to florges, the stones were in SM. I completely forgot to do so, and I'm stuck with 2 complete sets of Floette with no way to getting them to evolve. This will haunt me.

Found a Zacian that wanted a Schiggy in return but someone else was faster so the connection failed. I decided to just keep refreshing and after about 1 minute I found one for a Rowlet, never clicked so fast in my life. Trade came trough and just as it finished someone gave me another Zacian for my Cosmogon. lol

Unfortunately that hasn't fixed it. My pokemon have been in there since Tuesday night and while most of the gaps have filled out these two are stuck.

Hope this doesnt get in the way of that pokedex completion mystery gift.
This happened with me with Vivillon (on two separate times) and Floette. Both times resetting solved it, but in the case of Vivillon, it changed back again. Maybe try later? If you do have the pokémon, a patch will probably fix it eventually.

I just double-checked and Scatterbug can be caught in the gen 7 games.

Looks like using GTS is still viable for hunting down the different forms.

Anyone know what this Greninja form I'm missing is?

How is your display like that? Mine only shows the multiple forms if I click on the pokémon. But I also have third 3rd phantom formd

I don't have any pokémon left on previous generations to use their GTS. I'm stuck in this one.

Does anyone know how to register different Furfrou? I thought that was battle exclusive, impossible to differentiate in the boxes. Guess that's another I won't be getting for years.

I can help you with the Unown if you need it. I have full Unown sets from Platinum, HGSS and ORAS, so I have spare ? and ! going.

Woop, found someone who wanted a Reshiram for a Cosmoem. Neat. Might see if I can get a Zacian for this

In the Pokedex select Search then set Forms to All Forms

I've always wondered...does the blue area inside the hexagonal stat chart represent EV distribution? While the numbers next to each stat are influenced by both IV and EVs?

I wish once you linked HOME to a game the Pokedexes would sync between them.

Spent about two hours with Transporter and Bank and got 150 mons over, including a shiny I never knew I had. I don’t like Sun/Moon but I imagine I’ll need to dive back in to get the non-transferable mons without having to rely on GTS.

I'm dying to try a trade on Home, but my Unown are still in my Bank. I'll be home in a few hours, so I can push one of my Unown boxes to Home then and we can set up the trade. Does that work for you?
Sure but I have to leave for the day and won't be back for a while. Will you be available in 10ish hours?

If you guys have them then trading on the 3ds games is far quicker. Home trading is kinda busted ATM and even then it would be annoying to trade with a specific person. Would have to set up private group trade if you didnt want to gps spoof for friend trade

The blue area is just the visual representation of the stat total of each stat. It's the orange area that shows EV distribution

Is the Pokédex on the mobile app busted? I was trying to look at the entries for some of the mythicals I presently have in my box and it says 'entry not available in this language' which is ???

It's just Battle Bond Greninja and Own Tempo Rockruff are just not activating the dex

Mythicals have always been locked from this really.

Event ones often have Ribbons that prevent it too. Has been the case since Gen 4
You used to be able to trade Mythicals that didn't have one of the ribbons, though. I got a ton of stuff in the past using Wishmaker Jirachi, but it seems like that isn't even an option anymore.

It's super dumb that I can't even request Meltan. It's really easy to catch a bunch of those by design.

Well finally got a response from Pokemon on my inability to access Home ever since I did my Bank transfer.
Seems their developers are investigating.

How do you earn points in this game? Got 3000 on the first day, now I’ve submitted over 2000 Pokemon and haven’t had any since?

Huh, was not aware this was a thing. Though never tried to trade before. Kind of lame to give these cool ones away if I can't ever trade.

Hum, I saw that I was missing the Furfrou trims on my pokédex as well so I went to Ultra Sun, got all of them on the same Furfrou, moved him to HOME, and they're still not registered. Hopefully they'll fix that, the Greninja and the Rockruff entries soon.

I never caught a Blacephalon and it's irking me

That and a dumb Melmetal are all I need to wrap up my dex

I have a spare Blacephalon that I don't need. Do you have any legendaries or ultra beasts you could trade? I'm missing quite a few. Most of the UBs, as well as Reshiram and Kyurem.
I can scrounge some up, just have to navigate which are on which cartridge--won't be for another six hours or so? I think have an extra of the B/W legendaries but may have more spare UBs if you tell me what you need. Would this be through the home app or through 3DS?

So the GTS is only on the mobile app to make it harder to use without a subscription, yeah?

If you don’t have boxes full of things ready to trade you have to find a trade requesting a Pokemon you have, go back to the console Home, find and transfer the Pokemon, come back to mobile, and then hope that the trade is still available when you’re done.

If you can see that all 10 styles/forms are registered within your 3DS games Pokédex then make sure to update the Pokédex within Bank.
When transferring to Home your Bank Pokédex information gets transferred too so the forms information will go right along :)

It'd be through Home. I'm missing all the Ultra Beasts except for Blacephalon and Poipole.

I think if you're strictly only interested in using the GTS on Home as it pertains to Sw/Sh you're probably better off just requesting trades in dedicated threads.
