Why did I get a Japanese Pikachu from Pokemon home?

  1. 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?

  1. I think it was just the first day, I got a japan one as well, but the day after, if you didnt download home first day, you got an English one

  2. That's not true at all. I downloaded Home a few days after it's release, and I got a jpn Pikachu.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

    I really wish I had started on the switch :(

  6. Unfortunately, no. The only way to get Gmax Pikachu is by having Let's Go Pikachu save data.
