What is Pokemon Home?

Pokemon Home is an app that allows players to transfer Pokemon between compatible games.

The Pokemon Company created Pokemon Home so many Pokemon can follow trainers from game to game. This gives players additional incentive to train up and nurture Pokemon as they can stick with them from one game to the next.

As previously mentioned, the app is available on either mobile devices or the Nintendo Switch. Pokemon Home is great for keeping all of your Pokemon in one place. You can keep track of them and decide which ones to transfer over with ease.

Pokemon Home also comes with other great features like the ability to trade with other trainers, and view your Pokemon’s battle data.
