The thirst for Pokemon management is real.
The successor to Pokemon Bank, Pokemon Home, is now live across mobile devices and the Switch. One thing about the series has always been managing the critters you catch, and something like Home makes it a lot easier to do so. And if you have any doubts, you can take a look at the app’s first week downloads.
As reported by Sensor Tower, within the first week alone Pokemon Home has been downloaded 1.3 million times. That’s a pretty strong number. Not only that, it’s estimated to have already brought in $1.8 million in user spending already. That may not seem like a lot, but considering the low cost of the premium plans, it’s not too shabby. The bulk of the downloads came from the United States with Japan in a close second.
Pokemon Home is a cloud based storage system that allows you manage up to 6,000 Pokemon and is currently compatible with a range of titles in the franchise, including the Pokemon Bank that preceded it on 3DS. You can read more about its features and premium plans through here.
