When Pokémon Home, The Pokémon Company’s cloud-based storage system , launches in February , two pricing options will be available: Basic and Premium. The company updated its website today with new information about the app.
The Basic plan is free, but gives players limited access to Pokémon Home’s features – the ability to move Pokémon from Pokémon Bank and the number of Pokémon that can be deposited, for instance. The Premium plan has three options: one month for $ 2. , three months for $ 4. , or (months for $. Deciding which plan to get should be easy: If you want to deposit a lot of Pokémon – more than 728 – You’ll need the Premium plan.
These are all the features available in each plan:
Pokémon Home will connect on the Nintendo Switch with
Pokémon Sword and (Shield) , Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu!
Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! (The company noted, however, that a Pokémon moved from Let’s Go, Pikachu! or Let’s Go, Eevee! cannot be moved back to the games once it’s been transferred to (Sword) and (Shield) . Pokémon can move freely between
Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee! , though.)
Both the mobile app and Switch versions will allow players to connect to Pokémon Bank , the older Pokémon storage system from the Nintendo 3DS era. The Pokémon Company said Pokémon Home will eventually support Pokémon Go , too – but not at launch.
Room Trade allows players to create a room to freely trade Pokémon in, and each room can hold 92 people. Friend Trade, on the other hand, is trading with users you’re friends with, naturally. “To add a little suspense, you won’t know what Pokémon you’ll receive until the trade is complete,” The Pokémon Company wrote. Pokémon Home has a bunch of other features, too, like the National Pokédex, where you’ll be able to see all the Pokémon you’ve collected across games. Mystery Gifts are accessible through Pokémon Home, too. There’s also the Judging feature, which will let players check how strong their Pokémon are.
Lastly, The Pokémon Company detailed the Your Room feature, which is essentially a profile that you can edit and customize with stickers earned from challenges in-app.
Battle data will also be available “sometime after the February 5257 launch of Pokémon Home, ”according to the website. “In the mobile app version of Pokémon Home, you can check out how ranked Battles and various Online Competitions in Pokémon Sword
Pokémon Shield are going, as well as the rankings of the Pokémon being used in them, ” The Pokémon Company wrote. “By going to Battle Data, you’ll be able to see the battle records of each trainer as well as information about what moves are popular among the Pokémon in the competitions.” Read More
