Pokémon HOME released: These are the 35 Pokémon now available in Sword & Shield

The highly anticipated Pokémon storage and trading app, Pokémon HOME, has finally been released. It allows players to transfer creatures previously stored in Pokémon Bank from previous generations to be moved forward to the latest games, Pokémon Sword & Shield. It also allows for Pokémon Let’s Go! Pikachu or Eevee to be stored and moved, with support for GO coming soon.

Is Pokémon HOME worth paying for?

If you want to store most of your Pokémon collection, the simple answer is ‘yes’. Other benefits include storing up to 6,000 Pokémon, a 3 creature limit for the GTS, 10 Pokémon slots in your Wonder Box, host room trades and use the stat checking judge feature.

Free users will not be able to transfer anything from Bank, have a limit of 30 Pokémon, can use the GTS with 1 Pokémon at a time, enjoy only 3 slots in the Wonder Box and simply join room trades. No judgement feature to check stats.

With a full year being available for a low $15.99, it doesn’t break the bank. Shorter plans for six months ($4.99) or a single month ($2.99) are also available.

Well trainers, are you ready to dive into the new service? Let us know what Pokémon you’re bringing over in the comments! Hop on Discord to organize trades and battles with these new Pokémon.

  1. The box view is extremely disorienting to me. Been looking at sprites for 24 years now…they should have saved the art models for an actual pokedex view rather than by the box. I don’t like this, but guess I’ll have to get used to it.

  2. Ok I’ve decided to pass for now on PMD: DX

    They’ve ruined Friend Areas (one of the big factors why I say the og games were better than Explorers) and Ekans… what happened to you man

  3. I’ve looked up Grand Oak’s Japanese name, and it’s ダイオーキド (Daiōkido). The name references Dynamax, which makes me wonder why they didn’t go with “Dyna Oak” for English, but I guess maybe the translators missed it and thought it was just “Great Ōkido”.
    But also, the absence of an interpunct (・) in the name implies it’s supposed to be a nickname/alias. So, maybe it’s just Professor Oak in a costume rather than a new member of his family.

  4. I suppose I could try GTSing for Meltan/Melmetal.
    I suppose I’ll dump my living dex into Home. Be the guy to breed things for other friends.

  5. All Max Raids are now people showing off their transfered mons lmao.
    My shiny Incineroar did some work.

    Anyway, anyone got a Melmetal? I can give you a Deoxys, Arceus or maybe a Mew or Celebi you can transfer to SwSh.

  6. So my fears have been mostly quashed but looking in my bank I really treated like a storage unit and kept garbage breedjects to make room I bought the year plan and will go through my games to figure out what stays and what goes but honestly unless the full national dex is instated I really don’t have a whole lot I want to transfer because I usually start fresh each game and even so my Pokémon drive is fleeting (Smash and Animal Crossing)

    But eventually I’ll suck it up and wait to bring back the Earthen Warriors and IAN Team… eventually but for now just empty spaces and Thick Fat Swinub are all I really need

  7. wondertrade box not working…trade rooms constant booting…no untill the main features are fixed..it should be free
