The Pokémon Company has finally released Pokémon HOME, its cloud-based service that gathers all Pokémon from previous titles into one place. Available for Apple iOS, Android, and the Nintendo Switch, the online service, according to the press release, “allows users to take Pokémon from linked Pokémon series games, deposit them in Pokémon Boxes in the cloud, and move them around to other linked (and compatible) games.”

If users link the same Nintendo Account from their Switch and mobile versions of HOME, they will also be able to access the same Boxes from both platforms. The Nintendo Switch version of Pokémon HOME supports all the Switch’s Pokémon titles: Sword and Shield, Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu!, and Eevee!

Pokémon Bank and Poké Transporter will be available at no cost from February 12 to March 12, and after that, users must upgrade to a paid Premium Plan in Pokémon HOME to transport Pokémon from Bank. Various paid Premium Plans are on hand, from 1 month for $2.99 USD, 3 months for $4.99 USD, and 12 months for $15.99 USD.
