With February only a few days away, Nintendo has made a site for Pokémon Home revealing all of the functions as well as the pricing for those functions. In total, there are two different plans, each with their own set of benefits.
According to the website, the first plan is the free basic plan. The basic plan will allow players to deposit 30 Pokémon at a time, and will allow for 3 Pokémon to be placed in the Wonder Box. The basic plan will also allow players to place one Pokémon in the Global Trade Station at a time. Players will also be allowed to participate in room trades, however, they will not be able to host one. Players using the basic plan will be unable to move Pokémon from the Pokémon Bank or use the Judge functions.
Players who purchase the paid Premium plan will have three options for pricing. The three options are a one-month subscription for $2.99, a three-month subscription for $4.99, and a full year subscription for $15.99.The premium plan will allow players to move Pokémon from Pokémon Bank, deposit 6,000 Pokémon at a time, and place 10 Pokémon in the Wonder Box. It will also allow players to host and participate in trade rooms, as well as place 3 Pokémon in the Global Trade Station at a time. Finally, players that do pay will also be able to use the Judge function.
The app also has a number of other functions that players might enjoy. The Pokémon Home app will bring back the National Pokédex. When players deposit their Pokémon using the app, the Pokémon will be registered in the National Pokédex. The National Dex will also register information on Pokémon that can Mega Evolve and Gigantamax. Players will also be able to use the app to receive mystery gifts for both Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield as well as the app itself. Players will also be able to see personalized info in the room function. This will include information regarding events as well as games that players have connected with through the app. If players complete certain tasks or challenges in Pokémon Home they will receive stickers that they can use to give their rooms some personal flair.
Pokémon Home will be available on iOS, Android, and Nintendo Switch sometime in February 2020 and will be able to connect with Pokémon Sword, Pokémon Shield, Pokémon Let’s Go Eevee, Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu, and will eventually connect with Pokémon Go.
