The Nintendo Switch version of Pokémon HOME is able to connect with Pokémon Sword, Pokémon Shield, Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu!, and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!
If a Pokémon is transferred from PokémonLet’s Go, Pikachu!/Eevee to Pokémon Sword/Shield it cannot be transferred back to the Let’s Go games – Pokémon can however be transferred freely between both Let’s Go games
Both Nintendo Switch version and the mobile version of Pokémon HOME are able to connect with Pokémon Bank with future plans to support Pokémon GO
Pokémon HOME features four ways to trade your Pokémon with other players:
Wonder Box allows players to randomly trade with people around the world
GTS allows players to search for specific Pokémon they are seeking and wish to receive
Room Trade allows players to create a room and trade among the people in the room, up to a maximum of 20 individuals
Friend Trade grants the ability to trade with friends added through the Add Friend function in Pokémon HOME
The number Pokémon players are able to trade at once when using the Wonder Box and GTS can be increased with a Premium Plan. Players can only create room in Room Trade if they are enrolled in a Premium Plan
Pokémon HOME will feature a National Dex with information on every Pokémon
Players will have a “room” to customize with games they’ve traded from and stickers
