READ: HOME Tracker Value

Recommended Posts

One of your errors comes from that Height/Weight value on your main tab. Your Cobalion comes from USUM, and for any transfers from Bank to Home, they will always have values of 0 for Height and Weight. Keep in mind this was not introduced until LGPE, so you aren't allowed to have any Height or Weight values pre-LGPE. Only LGPE and SwSh Pokemon are allowed to have them.

Once you fix that you need to go to the OT/Misc tab and re-place the Pokemon back into the box slot, it fixes both errors once the program recognizes the current Handler OT is different from the OT on the Pokemon.

Thanks for the help. I just assumed that when they were transferred, that they would get assigned a random h/w value, similar to ivs when transferred from vc.

Hopefully is not a problem if i ask here, since this is regarding one of the point cove rin the main post.

If i create a Melmetal/Meltan using Pkhex in a save for LGPE then transfer the pkmn in Gen8 using Pkhex and then transfer the mon in Home there could be problem? I ask since as we know normaly you need to transfer from LGPE to Home then to Gen8.

In the first post i read this and this why i ask. Also i ask becouse i never done this (create in Gen8 prior gen mon and then transfer to home) so i don't know what coul happen if i store the Meltan line inside Home.

When creating new Pokémon that are from prior generations for Sword & Shield, leave the tracker blank and transfer it to HOME.

The mon can be transferred into SWSH (via PKHeX) just fine without a HOME tracker.

If you're talking about transferring into HOME afterwards, in order to acquire a HOME tracker, I don't know how HOME will treat it.
Previously, HOME just assigns a new tracker, no questions asked, but it is unknown if they keep a long chain of tracker changes.
If they do, it can be seen that your first entry point was in Sword.

Anyhow, if you don't want a bad egg to be stuck on your present HOME account (if it does become one),
just start up Pokémon HOME in a new user account on the Switch (will also probably need a new Nintendo ID linked to it).
If it does become a bad egg, at least it won't be stuck on your main; it'll be stuck in the disposable alt :3

Understand. The alt account is a very nice suggestion, i will probably try. If happen i will just hope they somebody in my area have one of the let's go game. At least for enable the Meltan box in GO so at least, when they add the compatibility in Home, i can transfer directly from them. Alternativly hope GF do an event for catching Meltan and Melmetal in Sw/Sh via raid den. Afterall i probably wrong but they still have not relase G-MAX Melmetal.

Thanks for your help as always. :)

I think that the majority of Meltan and Melmetal that people have is genned without an Home tracker value, due to Sysbots. 

Also, I don't think GF will ever decide to turn all of them into bad eggs, cause really lot of people have them, and it can also be traded normally in game. 

Anyway, a Pokémon without an Home tracker value, just get a new value once depositated into Home as before, there is no reportage of Bad Eggs appearing due to this.

Thanks for the extra information. Just to be on the testing/carefull side im gonna try this using a secondary account on Home. Or doh i have check out and all the case i have read for the Bad Eggs (my persona hell since Gen3, im so lucky he make a return) says nothing about mon that ware from Gen7 or LGPE or even previus Gen directly genned in Gen8 and the moved to Home.

I will try and let some time pass. Let's see what happen, if with the next update (should be very soon becouse of the second part of the exspansion pass) they become bad eggs or simply vanish i twill have learn something new about Home.
