If you make a Pokemon non-native to the Galar region (such as one of the above variants) hold an Everstone and breed it, you will get that same type. If you don't use an Everstone, you'll get the Galarian version. For example, if you breed an Alolan Meowth (female) with an Everstone, you'll get an Alolan Meowth. If you breed an Alolan Meowth with no Everstone, you'll get a Galarian Meowth.

Regional Form Evolutions

Pokemon with only an evolved regional form cannot be obtained in Pokemon Sword and Shield. Your only option will be to evolve these in a previous game and transfer them over.

After obtaining Necrozma and Kyurem, head to Stow-on-Side and talk to the Bargain Shop man on the right side. He will give you the respective items you need to create the 4 fusion forms above.

Evolving Into Lunala/Solgaleo

Cosmoem has two branching evolutionary paths, being able to evolve into Lunala or Solgaleo. It evolves into Lunala at Lvl. 53 in Pokemon Shield, and into Solgaleo at Lvl. 53 in Pokemon Sword.

How To Get Meltan/Melmetal

MeltanMeltanMelmetalMelmetal

Melmetal can only be obtained through Pokemon Go, via Pokemon Pikachu and Eevee. This means you'll have to catch it in Go, send it to Pikachu/Eevee, then send it to Home, then to your Sword/Shield file. Be careful, it can only be evolved in Pokemon GO, and you can't send it back to GO once it's been sent to Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee!

New Hidden Abilities

Hidden Ability Pokemon Now Usable In Ranked Battles

Prior to this Pokemon Home update, there were many Pokemon which had a Hidden Ability in previous games, but were unable to use it in Sword/Shield. These Pokemon can now be used in ranked battles so long as you transfer them over from a previous generation game and breed them in Sword/Shield.

※Nincada and Ninjask's Hidden Abilities can also be obtained by breeding a Shedinja with a Hidden Ability. You can obtain such a Shedinja from Max Raid Battles, but there is no visual indicator that it has a Hidden Ability.
