Various trading systems and differences between free and Premium Plans revealed.
Nintendo and The Pokemon Company have announced more details for Pokemon HOME, the Pokemon collection and management app that will go live in February. Coming to Android, iOS and Nintendo Switch, it will allow players to link supported titles and store their Pokemon in cloud servers. Supported titles include Pokemon Sword and Shied and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee! on Switch (Pokemon GO support is in the works).
Pokemon HOME allows for several different ways to trade Pokemon including the Global Trade System for outlining exactly which Pokemon you want or wish to receive, Room Trade for trading with up to 20 people, and Friend Trade for trading with friends. There’s also the National Pokedex for registering different Pokemon and their forms, Mystery Gifts and much more. Free and Premium plans are available but there are a number of differences.
Free users can only deposit 30 Pokemon while Premium users can deposit 6,000. Premium users can also create rooms to trade in while free users can only join rooms. Only one Pokemon can be placed in the Global Trade System for free users while Premium users can place three. A Premium plan costs $2.99 per month, $4.99 per three months and $15.99 for 12 months on the Nintendo eShop, though prices are subject to change. For more details, check out the official website here.
