Pokémon HOME

Pokémon HOME is a service that allows you to keep your entire Pokémon collection in one place. Developed both for Nintendo Switch and as a mobile app, Pokémon HOME stores your Pokémon from a number of Pokémon series games. You can also trade your Pokémon in various ways with people around the world!


Move All Your Pokémon

You can bring Pokémon from recent Pokémon games into Pokémon HOME as well as move them around to various compatible games. At launch, Pokémon HOME supports the Nintendo Switch games Pokémon Sword, Pokémon Shield, Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu!, and Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee!, as well as Pokémon Bank on Nintendo 3DS systems. There are future plans to support Pokémon GO, too.

There may be restrictions that apply to moving certain Pokémon. Compatibility with Pokémon titles for Nintendo Switch is limited to the Nintendo Switch version of Pokémon HOME.


Trade Pokémon

There are four ways to trade Pokémon using Pokémon HOME on your mobile device. Now you can trade Pokémon anywhere and anytime you like.

  • Pokémon placed in the Wonder Box can be traded with people around the world before you even know it! The Pokémon placed in the Wonder Box will be traded even when you're not using Pokémon HOME.

  • With the GTS, you can specify which Pokémon you want to trade and which Pokémon you want to receive. You'll then be matched with a Trainer if you each meet each other's criteria.

  • Room Trade lets you trade Pokémon in a room with up to 20 people.

  • Friend Trade allows you to trade your Pokémon with other users that you've become Friends with in Pokémon HOME.

View Detailed Pokémon Info

In the mobile device version, you can see much more than just Pokédex entries. You can also check each Pokémon's Abilities as well as the moves it can learn!

Receive Mystery Gifts Anywhere

You can receive Mystery Gifts in the mobile device version of Pokémon HOME. With this feature, you can receive Mystery Gifts for Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield! Pokémon received in Pokémon HOME can be directly deposited in a Box in Pokémon HOME.

You can also get some gifts, such as items, by getting a code or password in Pokémon HOME and then using that code or password in Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield.
