Pokemon Home is a cloud-based Pokemon storage app suggested by Game Freak during 2019’s Pokemon press conference. The program allows trainers to send their hard-caught Pokemon from their Switch, 3DS, or mobile device and trade with other trainers locally and online around a world.
With Pokemon Sword and Shield releasing this Friday, you’re certain to supplement a ton of new Pokemon to your Pokedex that you’d rather not remove when a subsequent diversion in a array fundamentally releases. Pokemon Home is an expansion of a stream storage system, Pokemon Bank, that allows we to store Pokemon from a 3DS games, a mobile Pokemon Go, and a new Switch games. Here’s all we know so distant about Pokemon Home, including a recover date, where it can be downloaded, what games are compatible, and some-more as information is revealed.
How it’ll work
Similar in speculation to Pokemon Bank, that usually accepts Pokemon from 3DS games, Pokemon Home is a storage app for your Pokemon that lets we save Pokemon from Let’s Go: Eevee and Let’s Go: Pikachu, Pokemon Sword and Shield, Pokemon Go, and Pokemon Bank. It also differs from Pokemon Bank in that we can trade and correlate with other players by both internal and online connections.
According to a striking done by Game Freak to denote a approach transferring works with Pokemon Home, a new cloud-based use will concede transfers from Pokemon Bank, Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu, Pokemon Let’s Go Eevee, Pokemon Sword and Shield, and Pokemon Go. However, Pokemon stored in Pokemon Home can usually be eliminated to Pokemon Sword and Shield, for apparent reasons.
It was also suggested during E3 2019 that while Pokemon from opposite games can be eliminated into Pokemon Sword and Shield from Pokemon Home, a preference of negotiable Pokemon is limited to those enclosed in Sword and Shield’s Pokedex.
When it’s entrance out
All we know on this front is what was suggested during a Pokemon press conference, that is that Pokemon Home is entrance “early 2020.” That gives we some time between Pokemon Sword and Shield’s Nov 15 recover to locate as many Pokemon as we can to store in Pokemon Home for destiny releases.
Where we can download it
If Pokemon Bank is any indication, you’ll be means to download Pokemon Home right from your device of choice, either that’s a Switch, 3DS, or mobile device, from a Nintendo eShop. You can also download Pokemon Bank from your Nintendo comment on PC, and we’re awaiting a same to request with Pokemon Home.
How most it’ll cost
It hasn’t been strictly suggested how most Pokemon Home will cost, or even if it will cost anything during all. Pokemon Bank costs $5 / £4.49 / €4.99, though we wouldn’t be so discerning to assume Pokemon Home will cost a same. Considering Switch Online comes with a own, and almost pricier, subscription cost, there’s a good possibility Nintendo will simply gold in Pokemon Home with a Switch Online subscription. Though if that’s a case, players who entrance a use by a mobile device or 3DS will expected have to compensate a apart subscription fee.
What games it’s concordant with
Pokemon Home will be concordant with Pokemon Let’s Go: Pikachu, Pokemon Let’s Go: Eevee, Pokemon Sword and Shield, Pokemon Go, and each diversion concordant with Pokemon Bank. Those games embody – takes breath – Pokemon Black and White, Pokemon Black and White versions 2, Pokemon Red and Blue, Pokemon Yellow and Gold, Pokemon Silver and Crystal, Pokemon X and Y, Pokemon Alpha Sapphire, Pokemon Omega Ruby, Pokemon Sun and Moon, and Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon.
Just remember, Pokemon Sword and Shield are a usually games that Pokemon Home will be means to send Pokemon into, and you’ll usually be means to send Pokemon into Sword and Shield that are already a partial of Sword and Shield’s Pokedex.
