I got traded Pokemon not yet released?

Link trading, today and yesterday, has just been FILLED with starters from other generations.. It seems very suspect to me, as I'm getting them seemingly for free, as in I'm not giving offering good Pokémon back and they'll still trad with me.

What's going on? Is Pokémon home out someplace in the world already?

It isn't out. Some people hack the game and obtain starters of other generations that are yet to be released/patched; same people hosting Zekrom/Solgaleo raids. They are all illegal as of now.

Does this have any consequences for me if I don't use them and just keep them stored in boxes?

Might be, yes. I don't have much information, but it's straight out illegal to hack/code any Pokémon; put them in raids and etcetera.

If you want to be sure, you should delete it. This pokemon is generated by cheating or it has been bred with a cheated pokemon.
Gamefreak removed the trade-lock for those starter pokemon yesterday. Probably, they are running some tests for Pokemon Home right now.

However, this could indicate, that we are not "Far from Home" anymore. :)

Home should be out either by this weekend or the end of next week. It should definitely be out by Pokémon Day so don’t be surprised if that is when it comes out.
