Pokémon Home, the latest system used to transfer Pokémon between games, has released on the Nintendo Switch, IOS, and Android. As previously announced, it currently supports connectivity with Sword and Shield, Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Lets Go, Eevee!, and Pokémon Bank. It will also function with Pokémon GO sometime in the future.
Players have two plans to choose from when using Pokémon Home. The basic plan, which is free, will allow you to store 30 Pokémon, place 3 Pokémon in the Wonder Box, and have 1 Pokémon in the Global Trade System (GTS). The premium plan will cost $2.99 for 30 days, $4.99 for 90 days, or $15.99 for a year. With this comes the ability to transfer Pokémon from Bank to Home, store up to 6,000 Pokémon, place 10 Pokémon in the Wonder Box, have up to 3 Pokémon in the GTS, host Room Trades, and use the Judge Function.
While you can access Home from both the Nintendo Switch and mobile devices, only certain functions will work depending on which version you use. The Nintendo Switch version will let you move Pokémon from Bank and the Lets Go games to Home, along with shifting Pokémon between Home and Sword and Shield. The mobile version, on the other hand, will give you access to the GTS, Wonder Trading, Mystery Gift, and Friend Trades. More details on the service can be found on the official website.
