Pokemon Home is the ultimate place where Trainers can have their Pokemon go. This program allows players to link all of their Pokemon from different games and apps all in one convenient location by linking their Nintendo accounts together and apparently, this is exactly what people wanted because Pokemon Home has hit over 1.3 million downloads in its opening week.
According to a recent report by Sensor Tower, the first week was a bustle of activity for the Pokemon franchise, clocking in over 1.3 million downloads. Additionally, it’s also reported that this download number is accompanied by over $1.8 million in user spending, making this venture successful, profitable, and with ample opportunity for growth.
As for who is getting in on the Pokemon Home action, the United States and Japan are the two reigning locations, so if you’re looking to go up against the best of the best in terms of trainers, those two locales are the creme de la creme.
Pokemon Home connects with games like Pokemon Sword and Shield, Pokemon: Let’s GO, and Pokemon GO, making it an awesome way to keep everything organized in order to be the most efficient trainer there ever was. It also makes trading even easier as well, but there’s a few key things you should be aware of first, as per Nintendo:
- Pokémon placed in the Wonder Box can be traded with people around the world. Pokémon placed in the Wonder Box will be traded even when Pokémon HOME is not being used
- With the Global Trade System (GTS), fans can specify which Pokémon they want to trade and which Pokémon they want to receive. They will then be matched with a Trainer if both meet each other’s criteria
- Room Trade lets Trainers create a room and trade Pokémon among the people who join. Each room can hold up to 20 people. Trading in rooms has no cost, but users will only be able to create rooms when enrolled in a Premium Plan (paid)
- Friend Trade allows Trainers to trade their Pokémon with nearby users who they have become friends with in Pokémon HOME. Trainers can add friends using the Add Friend feature in Pokémon HOME
