Pokémon HOME Maintenance Notice

Thank you for using Pokémon HOME. This message is to inform you that system maintenance has been scheduled for the following time period. During maintenance, all features of Pokémon HOME will become unavailable.

Maintenance period: 01:30 to 11:30 UTC, 02/25/2020 (scheduled)

Fixes:
A fix for the issue where all Pokémon moved from Pokémon Bank to Pokémon HOME before 9:00 a.m. UTC on Wednesday, February 12, 2020, would lose their Hyper Training information.

Hyper Training information will be restored for the affected Pokémon.

For users that have already moved the Pokémon to Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield, we ask that they return those Pokémon to Pokémon HOME well in advance of the beginning of the maintenance period.

We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused to all of our users.
