Pokemon Home

Pokemon Home is available now for Switch via the Nintendo eShop, iOS via the App Store, and Android via Google Play.

Here is an overview of the service, via its store pages:

Switch Version

Pokemon Home is a cloud service for the Nintendo Switch system and compatible mobile devices designed as a place where all Pokemon can gather. By linking the same Nintendo Account to both the Nintendo Switch version and mobile version of Pokemon Home, you’ll be able to access the same Pokemon Boxes on both versions. With Pokemon Home you can move Pokemon between compatible games, trade Pokemon on the go, and more! You can also purchase a subscription to the Pokemon Home Premium Plan for more features.

With Pokemon Home, you can manage your collection of Pokemon across multiple games. Gathering your Pokemon is just the beginning—you can trade with friends or with anyone around the world directly using the Pokemon Home mobile app. A subscription to the Premium Plan gives the ability to transfer Pokemon from Pokemon Bank expands the number of Pokemon that can be deposited from 30 to 6,000, expands the number of Pokemon that can be placed in the Wonder Box and GTS at one time (mobile version only), allows you to host your own Room Trades (mobile version only), and gives you the Judge function right within Pokemon Home.
