In The Games Department
Details have started to come for Pokémon HOME's connectivity with previous games with Version 2.0
Pokémon from Legends Arceus will display a Strange Ball in Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl while Pokémon from Sword & Shield or Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl will display the Strange Ball in Pokémon LEgends Arceus
When you deposit Pokémon from BDSP you will get a gift of Turtwig, Chimchar and Piplup with Hidden Abilities
When you put Pokémon from Legends Arceus, you will get a gift of Rowlet, Cyndaquil and Oshawott with highest Effort Levels
Pokémon HOME mobile will allow for you to check the Pokédex of each game connected to your Pokémon HOME as well as the National Pokédex. This only registers Pokémon that have been in their respective game's Pokédex and they only register Pokémon caught in those games. If a Pokémon hasn't had its Pokédex page completed in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, it will note as such in Pokémon HOME. There are also new Stickers and Achievements coming
The moves that Pokémon can learn in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, Pokémon Brilliant Diamond, Pokémon Shining Pearl, Pokémon Sword, and Pokémon Shield differ from those that they can learn in other games, so a Pokémon’s moves will not be reflected when it is transferred to another game. When a Pokémon is taken to another game for the first time, the moves it can use will be determined by its level.
If a Pokémon is brought from the game it was caught into another game and learns other moves, and is then brought back to the game it was caught in, it will go back to having the moves that it originally knew
Special Pokémon from BDSP that can only be caught once during regular gameplay can only be deposited once per save data to Pokémon HOME.

Edit @ 15:09: Updated the Transfer section to give details and restrictions for transfer
