New Official Nintendo App Transfers Pokemon Between Devices

Pokemon Home is a new cloud-storage service for Pokemon on Nintendo Switch and mobile devices. It's an app similar to Pokemon Bank on the 3DS.

It has almost all the same characters as Pokemon Sword and Shield. It lets the user exchange one Pokemon for another character from past Pokemon games that can be played on the Nintendo Switch. You can use Pokemon Home for online play. The prices for the memberships are $3 for a one-month membership, $5 for a three-month membership, and $16 for a one-year membership.

Pokemon Home is compatible with other games such as Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee, among other Pokemon games. The user can have up to nine friends to play with and share Pokemon Online with any of these friends. Consumers who are under 16 won't be able to purchase Pokemon Home
