2019 Pokémon Press Conference, Game Freak revealed a new cloud-based Pokémon storage system, Pokémon Home. The 2019 press conference was surprisingly filled with plenty of mobile news for Pokémon fans.
While the Nintendo 3DS version, Pokémon Bank, only let players store Pokémon on their console, Home will let players transfer Pokémon from other devices as well. The app will be usable through mobile devices and will allow trainers to trade with each other locally and globally.
Pokemon Home is a place for all your Pokemon to gather in one place and work a little like a supercharged version of the 3DS era Pokemon Bank. It will be a cloud-based service that links up with your smartphone and Nintendo Switch so you can grab your Pokemon and chuck them all together.
It will also allow trainers to trade Pokemon at any time, from their smartphone. Currently, Home is scheduled for an Early 2020 launch for iOS, Android, and Switch. It appears that Pokémon will be transferable from Pokémon Go, Pokémon Bank, Let’s Go, Pikachu! Let’s Go, Eevee!, and Pokémon Sword and Shield. However, Pokémon will only be able to move to Sword and Shield from Pokémon Home, likely to avoid any confusion with new Pokémon in older games.
The other launch is the Pokémon sleep that utilizes your time spent sleeping and time waking up to create new kind of gameplay. The primary goal as according to the company is to give players a reason to provide a better morning along with Pokemon by your side. The company has also partnered with Nintendo on a new sleep-tracking device called the Pokémon Go Plus that can be connected to the popular mobile game, which itself will receive gameplay updates designed around sleep and rest.
