The Japanese company Nintendo is now out with a new support app called Pokemon Home. This was teased a while back and is now out for Android, iOS and Nintendo Switch. This app will allow players to transfer the Pokemon that they already have in one game to the latest one from the franchise. The newest games in the franchise are Pokemon Sword and Shield. Players will be able to transfer their Pokemon from past Switch and 3DS games like Pokémon X and Y.
Nintendo has made this app free to download and it comes with a basic plan that offers the user 30 Pokemon slots. Besides this there is a Pokemon Home premium plan which has a subscription model. It costs $3 for a 30 day subscription, $5 for a 90 day subscription or $16 for a whole year worth. The basic plan won’t let users transfer Pokemon that they may have on games some of the older 3DS because it does not support Pokemon bank feature. The first time players download and run the app, they are granted a free Pokemon.
