RUMOR: Pokémon HOME update leaks new moves from DLC

The Spanish fansite Centro Pokémon claims to have datamined the new Pokémon HOME update and found some interesting information. They have a list of 21 new moves that are not currently available in Pokémon Sword & Shield, but may be added next month with the release of the Isle of Armor.

Here’s their list, in which you can find Zarude’s new move Jungle Healing:

  • Expanding Force
  • Steel Roller
  • Scale Shot
  • Meteor Beam
  • Shell Side Arm
  • Misty Explosion
  • Grassy Glide
  • Rising Voltage
  • Terrain Pulse
  • Skitter Smack
  • Burning Jealousy
  • Lash Out
  • Poltergeist
  • Corrosive Gas
  • Coaching
  • Flip Turn
  • Triple Axel
  • Dual Wingbeat
  • Scorching Sands
  • Jungle Healing
  • Wicked Blow
  • Surging Strikes

Simply based on the names, it looks like there is quite a diverse distribution across types. I’m particularly excited to see if Scorching Sands may give us a Ground-type move that can cause the Burn status effect.

As always, I recommend holding off on too much excitement until things are confirmed officially. We welcome you to discuss this list in the comments below or in our dedicated rumor channel in Discord!
