==Compatibility==
Pokémon Sword and Shield can connect with [[Pokémon HOME]]. This allows it to store and receive Pokémon from Pokémon HOME, including Pokémon from previous [[generation]]s that were transferred into Pokémon HOME. However, only Pokémon in the [[List of Pokémon by Galar Pokédex number|Galar regional Pokédex and the listed "foreign" species]] can be transferred to Pokémon Sword and Shield. The list of compatible foreign species is expected to expand in conjunction with the Pokémon Sword and Shield Expansion Pass releases.

===Unusable moves===
{{main|List of moves by availability (Generation VIII)}}
In Pokémon Sword and Shield, many moves are no longer usable. Pokémon do not normally learn these moves in the game, and if a Pokémon does know one of these moves (e.g. due to being transferred from [[Pokémon HOME]]), it will not be able to use it. If the move is forgotten, the [[Move Relearner]] will not be able to teach it again, even if it is a special move that the Pokémon normally would be able to relearn.
 
In Pokémon Sword and Shield, the description of moves of these moves is replaced by "''This move can't be used. It's recommended that this move is forgotten. Once forgotten, this move can't be remembered.''"
