Nintendo finally announced the release date of the second expansion to “Pokemon Sword” and “Pokemon Shield.” Titled “The Crown Tundra,” the second expansion will launch Oct. 22 and players will be able to catch every legendary Pokemon that has appeared previously in the main series game, including some new ones.

That will get fans of the main series excited, but what’s more interesting is that Tsunekazu Ishihara, president and CEO of The Pokemon Company, announced that the link between “Pokemon Go” and “Pokemon Home” is coming by the end of the year. With the connection between the two products, players will be able to transfer their pocket monsters from “Pokemon Go” into “Pokemon Home.” From there, they’ll be able to use those Pokemon in the latest main series games and expansions. It appears that the Pokemon transferred to Pokemon Home won’t be able to go back to Niantic’s game, but they will be able to go back and forth between “Pokemon Sword” and “Pokemon Shield” and “Pokemon Home.”

That likely means pocket monsters captured in “Pokemon Go” may be able to be used in future titles. What’s more is that trainers who transport the “Pokemon Go” creatures into “Pokemon Home” will activate the Mystery Box, which will spawn Meltan. And yes, that Pokemon has a chance at being shiny, according to Niantic. Shiny Meltan is one of the more elusive pocket monsters to get in the game because it was only available for a short time a few months back. With the link to Niantic’s game and the app, players will finally have a chance at it. The whole process of acquiring the mythical Pokemon could also be easier because it possibly won’t require a Switch. Players just need to move their pocket monsters from “Pokemon Go” to “Pokemon Home,” which has a version of the app on iOS and Android devices. “Pokemon Home” is also on the Switch, too.

This move could ease some of the storage issues for those who hoard creatures in “Pokemon Go.” It creates another outlet to get rid of pocket monsters while still making them usable. It wouldn’t be a bad idea to transfer some legendaries or extra shinies to “Pokemon Home” so they could be used in the main series games.
