The Pokémon Home service was announced last year and speculation has been flying back and forth about it ever since. Today, The Pokemon Company have finally activated their Official Pokémon Home Website.

For those of you who want to know the specific details about the service here you go.

  • Pokémon Home will support the entire National Dex.
  • Pokémon Home integrates with all four of the Switch titles, Pokemon Go and Pokemon Bank.
  • Pokémon can be moved freely back and forth between Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee. However, Pokémon moved into Sword and Shield from either Let’s Go cannot be transferred back into Let’s Go.
  • There will be paid and unpaid account options. Only Paid accounts can integrate with Pokémon Bank.
  • Price for a Premium account will cost $15 US a year. You can also pay $3 US for 1 month or $5 US for 3 months.
  • Users with Free accounts will be greatly limited as to how many Pokémon they can store in Home (30 Pokémon free vs 6K for a Paid account) and won’t be able to use features like the Judge Function.
  • Even Free users will be able to Trade and earn Mystery Gifts using Pokémon Home from their Smartphones.

After reading the Mystery Pass details I’m concerned this may be the beginning of the end for the Pokémon Pass app, as it looks like Pokémon Home is capable of replicating all its functionality.

Pokémon Home is launching February 2020. You’ll be able to access it on the Nintendo Switch and Smartphones.
