Why did I get a Japanese Pikachu from Pokemon home?
Okay. So when pkmn home came out, I got a Japanese Pikachu. Cool I guess I didn’t really care, gamexplain got a Japanese Pikachu so i thought everyone got one? But apparently some are not getting regular English Pikachu’s? Why is that? Did you get a Japanese one? HonestlyIdunno - 1 month ago

I downloaded Home first day on my phone and got an English Pikachu. My brother started up Home on my switch yesterday and he got a Japanese Pikachu. Rozsavaria - 1 month ago
A day one glitch with Home caused all non nicknamed Pokemon to have their names reverted back to their language's default name. Pokemon transferred since then should be unaffected. Thorgonator (Expert) - 1 month ago
Look up "List of game-based Pokémon distributions in Generation VIII" on Bulbapedia
(I would have pasted the link but gamefaqs kept telling me it was too long of a word)
tl;dr it depends on whether you started Home on the switch or a mobile device.

Unfortunately, no. The only way to get Gmax Pikachu is by having Let's Go Pikachu save data. Flygon_YEET - 4 weeks ago
