Pokemon Home Announced – New Cloud based service for Switch and Mobile Devices

At the Pokemon conference yesterday it was announced that a new cloud service for Pokemon is coming to Switch and iOS/Android.

The service will arrive early next year and allow you to trade and transfer your Pokemon with friends as well as between systems. The service will be compatible with Pokemon Let’s Go, Pokemon Go and the upcoming Sword and Shield.

Introducing Pokémon HOME, a cloud service that will work with Nintendo Switch and iOS and Android devices, allowing you to bring over the Pokémon that you’ve shared adventures with throughout your journey.


Pokémon HOME isn’t tied to a single game system, meaning you can connect with Pokémon Bank, along with #PokemonLetsGo, #PokemonSwordShield, and #PokemonGO. It also features trading functionality.
