Pokemon Home, the cloud-based Pokemon storage service, is now live on Nintendo Switch, iOS, and Android.
Pokemon Home allows trainers around the world to manage their collection of Pokemon across multiple games, trade with others, participate in Wonder Box and the Global Trade System, and much more.
After downloading the free Pokemon Home App on either Nintendo Switch, iOS, or Android, users will also be given the option to upgrade to a Premium Plan for $2.99 (£2.69 on Switch / £2.99 on smartphones) for one month, $4.99 ($4.49 on Switch / £4.99 on smartphones) for three months, or $15.99 (£14.49 on Switch / £15.99 on smartphones) for 12 months.
The Premium Plan allows for transferring of Pokemon from Pokemon Bank to Pokemon Home, raises the deposited Pokemon limit from 30 to 6,000, lets users place 10 Pokemon in Wonder Box instead of 3 and have 3 Pokemon in Global Trade System instead of 1, allows for players to host in addition to participate in Room Trade, and gives the ability to utilize the Judge function.
It’s also important to note that there are differences between the Nintendo Switch version and mobile phone versions. The Nintendo Switch version of Pokemon Home does not allow for trading, receiving Mystery Gifts, and checking Battle Data and News.
The mobile version, on the other hand, does not let trainers move Pokemon from Pokemon Sword, Pokemon Shield, Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu!, and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee! or exchange Pokemon Home Points for BP (Battle Points).

Pokemon Home will not be compatible with Pokemon GO at launch, but that functionality is currently being worked on. Unfortunately, there is no time table for its release.
Pokemon Home will essentially replace the need for Pokemon Bank, and to learn more, be sure to check out our Pokemon Home Wiki Guide.
