This service will allow players to transfer Pokemon to Pokemon Sword and Shield. You will also be able to the service to transfer a selective number of Pokemon from Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu/Eevee and Pokemon Go to Sword and Shield.
Just like Pokemon Bank, Pokemon Home will also be a paid service. We aren’t sure if it will be priced similar to Pokemon Bank, which is $5 annually. More details regarding Pokemon Home will be released prior to the launch of Pokemon Home in February 2020.
