  • Great! But needs one or two features Feb 19, 2020

    By DOGGOSSSSSS 🐶🐶🐶🐶
    This game is great it has many features that I have always wanted for Pokémon sword and shield but it is lacking some, such as the feature on the GTS where there is a setting where it filters the Pokémon you are searching for four people asking for Pokémon that you have. This is an excellent feature and I am surprised it is not added in Pokémon HOME. Also it would be great if we had some sort of way to battle, maybe on the switch version it would be better than the mobile version but still nonetheless we need a way to battle, especially since on the news category it says battle as a category. Overall this is a great game but there is one more thing I would like to see in it. There should be more boxes in the basic plan of the version one box really isn’t going to help people who want to save money but like to play Pokémon, especially if they might be shiny hunters or they just need extra space in their boxes. Also, people should not be able to make a possible trades such as dittos with genders or legendary Pokémon with genders which there is no way that anybody can trade unless it is hacked. These trades generally annoy me because this is people just taunting others. I’d like to see your future that removes the capability of making any sort of impossible trade. I love this app how it can transfer Pokémon to and from games and I think once it gets updated more it will just keep getting better. :3

    Really useful in combination with the switch version for trading pokemon. The gts is very useful, but some parts of it are very annoying. You can only search trades by what you are getting, and cannot filter out trades you don't have the requested pokemon for. Also, some people request unobtainable pokemon, like a lv 1-10 rillaboom. Still waiting for pokemon go compatibility so I can transfer over dupe shinys and legendarys and it would be nice to at least know when this will be added.

  • Great, just a few issues May 17, 2020

    By R3GULUS
    I’ve loved Pokémon ever since I could remember, but I’ve never had a chance to play a game until I got Sword. I loved it so much, and when I found out there was an app that could allow me to essentially trade for free, I was amazed. I got this app, and it’s been going great. However, there are just a few issues. First of all, it would be best if in the GTS you could only allow possible trades. I’ve been searching for a Zamazenta for a little over five months now, and all everyone wants are impossible to get, such as a level 51-60 Zacian, or a level 1-10 Poipole. That last one really ticks me off, because for every single Pokémon out there, someone wants a level 1-10 Poipole. Second, the whole can-store-from-Let’s-Go-but-not-go-back thing doesn’t make sense. I’m not a computer coding wizard, so I’m maybe just ignorant, but it’s still confusing. Last, and probably the most unimportant problem, is the premium plan. Don’t get me wrong, $16 a year is absolutely fantastic, but it’s the differences from the basic plan that really irk me. Only three Pokémon in the Wonder Box at a time? At least 6 would make it a lot better in my opinion, but now I’m just rambling. Overall, this is an amazing app I would recommend to every trainer out there, but fixing these few issues would make it a lot better. Thank you!

    Good for transfer and ease of transfering between switch games, not perfect but woks. GTS facility seems to keep allowing people to ask for impossible combinations just to show off, it should not be that hard to restrict to valid combinations by pokemon type as not that many really as it does not need unlimited combinations. I would like to see it so you can manage boxes by phone app and trade on switch app, as a pain to keep going between the two. Should be more cloud based.

  • Great app bad specs Feb 19, 2020

    By Savvager
    Pokémon home is awesome but Pokémon Co. I hope you’re reading this and take this I to consideration. 1. The world of Pokémon trading is amazing and very vast but your program has a major flaw and that is communication. If I trade with a random person across the world I should be able to speak to them also. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve found someone to trade with and then it ended up being a waste of both our time just because we can’t communicate. If I could talk to the other person I’m trading with things would be much better think about that for your next game please. Secondly there’s over a 1000 Pokémon in the Pokémon universe currently for you to limit that in the year 2020 and only allow us to explore one region is ridiculous the games would be more fun and more exciting if every single Pokémon from Kanto to Galar region were available on every game from now on including being able to travel to different regions the game itself would be extremely popular and more challenging to someone who’s been playing Pokémon since they were 10. Finally Pokémon home has not allowed me to friend trade at all not sure what’s going on with that buts there’s been several updates and bug fixes still not working.

    Great sorting functions and easy to ise GTS but have some functions I would like added: such as the ability to train Pokemon as some cannot be transferred to Sword/Shield or Let's Go. Another function that would make it better is the ability to search by what pokemon people are asking for: e.g. i have two Pikachu and can search for GTS trainers who want a Pikachu.

    Great app overall however I'm still seeing a lot of people requesting impossible pokémon(pokémon that were never obtainable at the requested level) for their pokémon on the gts as a way to show off their pokémon I guess. It gets annoying though when most of the listings you're viewing are actually impossible to fulfill. There's still a bunch of impossible requests, I'm gonna drop my rating just until it gets fixed.

  • GTS Needs More Options May 21, 2020

    By InvertedApathy
    I got this app because I’m planning to complete my SwSh pokédex and start shiny hunting, and I was hoping to find people who wanted to trade some version exclusives, along with a foreign Ditto for masuda method breeding. Joining the app, I was really disappointed. The process of transferring the pokes I wanted to offer was fairly simple (if a little clunky due to switching systems), but when it came time to find a trading partner... well. Even with “exclude people searching for legendaries/mythicals” turned on, the pages were flooded with people looking for one-available-per-game unbreedable pokemon like Poipole and the Tapu line. And almost the rest of the time, the pokemon requested was actually impossible like a level 1 Cinderace... or at the very least, it only looks like that, because the app only shows you a small handful of different trade offers with no way to view more offers. (This is also why I have low faith in putting up my own offer, because there’s no way for me to know if anyone is seeing it.) I would greatly appreciate more search filters you could apply when looking at the GTS, like a “only show offers I can fulfill” or an “exclude (x) pokemon”, or even just letting people view ALL offers if they fit the search criteria. If changes that improve the trading process are made I’ll change my review.

  • Obviously essential, but could be much better. Apr 11, 2020

    By pbandjamen
    I’d like to see an option to sort Pokémon by quantity, that way when I’m trying to wonder box breedjects and the like I can sort them to the top easily. Also being able to filter by “Pokémon I can trade for” or “shiny Pokémon only” when browsing gts would be cool. I’d also like to be able to trade meltans because they are NOT special, and frankly I have too many of them (imagine requiring 400 candies to evolve and not letting people trade the excess trash). Thanks. Also, why are people still able to request impossible trades, thought that was supposed to die in gen 7? I don’t want to see a shiny posted for a lvl 10 avalugg or whatever tf else. If you don’t want actually want to trade it, don’t post it just to show off. You’re not impressive, you’re a jerk. Why do we only get 3 room trades per day? If there’s a genuine reason I’d love to know, if not, can it please be uncapped? Why does wonder trade take over 12 hours sometimes? Doesn’t that seem like a bit much? Takes less than 2 minutes in SwSh. Admittedly it is pretty nice being able to transfer Pokémon between users on the same switch without having to trade, but that’s one of few features that isn’t plagued by unnecessary head (and heart) aches.

    Love the app but its biggest downfalls are allowing trades to be posted for pokemon that can't actually be traded and removing necessary items from pokemon upon transfer to home. Trading zacian and zamazenta without their items makes them quite useless, hopefully they'll add in exceptions, allow items, or a point buy shop thing to acquire these missing items.

    Been waiting so long for this!! Absolutely awesome! I only wish that I could play with my pokemon, pet them and stuff. And also would REALLY love to see their nickname somewhere on the "room" screen. I would pay good money too for a pokewalker or equivalent physical way to take them on the go.

    I love the convenience of the app and it's connectivity! However, I thought the impossible trade requests were patches out? I'm still seeing people request lvl 11-20 third evolutions such as Rillaboom (which can't evolve until 30s) what am I supposed to do then unless I'm missing something...or those people are hacking

  • Please read, good app, has some flaws Jul 15, 2020

    By FiAwesome
    Ok so I left a review a while back but I’m changing it as I got the main problem fixed. This is a a great idea but I think it needs tinkering. I definitely think it’s awesome that I can store Pokémon from all my save files and whatnot, plus the trading is awesome... however I think the trading needs to be fixed a little bit. #1 people shouldn’t be allowed to ask for low level full evo starters. That’s just impossible as far as I’ve figured out. Also there should be more specifics about the Pokémon your getting and the Pokémon your giving. You should be able to check the stats and moveset if a Pokémon, that just makes sense, and if your trading away your Pokémon, you should be able to be more specific with what you get back. All the searching mechanics should be more specific. If I’m trading away I shiny I probably want a shiny back, but all I can put is pretty much the name and level and stuff. And when your searching, you can almost only search for level and gender, plus games it can go to. There needs to be more filters. Finally, and this isn’t important what so ever, but is it just me or do the sprites look kind of weird. I don’t really like them.

  • EDIT: Not so Horrible Apr 23, 2020

    By Epyon0080
    Absolutely horrible app. Poor instructions, bugs, unable to connect to different devices and a rushed execution led to me losing over 1700 Pokemon, including some very rare ones. But most importantly, I have submitted 3 help tickets and sent numerous emails requesting assistance with this and I have not received a SINGLE response back. So poor customer service on top of a buggy app and rushed execution and you get this monstrosity they aren’t even worried about, bc it is a necessary evil that they know pokemon fans will pay for. Well, this is one customer that will NOT pay for it again. After my 1-month membership is over, my money will no longer go towards Bank or Home. Be better Nintendo. EDIT: after months of back and forth emails, where I responded immediately and Nintendo support took weeks to respond to a single email, they restored my lost Pokemon today. Only took 2 months, but they did it, so I can’t complain too much. Thank you for working on this Nintendo and at least doing the right thing in the end. It doesn’t really matter how long it took, just that it got done in the end.

    It does what I very much needed it for but leaves a lot to be desired. The animations feel slow and often unnecessary. What I would love to see is an option to disable those and also an ability to search for the Pokemon people want on the GTS so users can quickly see what people are offering for their Pokemon.

  • Beautiful App - Trolls clog the trades Mar 22, 2020

    By Gr3yStar
    The layout and presentation of Pokémon Home is superb and eye catching. It has most features you desire. It lacks some as well. When trading Pokémon, you are presented with a list of Pokémon that the person wants and you have. The issue is that you don’t know at first glance which Pokémon are from which box. You may accidentally trade a Pokémon you want to keep instead of the duplicates you don’t want because you can’t lock Pokémon from being traded either. This is also assuming you can trade with others to begin with. The biggest issue with Pokémon Home is one that has been plaguing the Pokémon trading scene for years. Impossible trade requests. Anyone can put their Pokémon up for trade and request something impossible. They can request Pokémon that can never be in a certain level range or even ask for Pokémon with a gender that is also unavailable to that Pokémon! And if you’re feeling bold, why not do both at once? Every single lookup of a Pokémon you might want is filled with impossible requests, pushing the legitimate ones to the wayside and out of sight. My recommendation at this time is to only use Home for organization of your Pokémon and forget using the trading feature... which is sad because that is in direct opposition of the whole idea behind the Pokémon games to begin with!

    I like how the app let's you transfer the Pokémon from different devices, but when I started out, I thought I didn't think I would have to wait to unlock it. Also, it was kind of confusing because I have different accounts for both my Switch and my 2Ds so I had to figure out what it meant when it said that I have already used this app on my switch (which I haven't so I'm not sure why it's saying that). The whole thing is just super confusing to use, but I would recommend if you want to transfer.

  • Kind of pointless as of now Feb 17, 2020

    By Ralphieb2t
    Why would you need a transfer service for Pokémon that are already found in Galar? Don’t get me wrong, the app is very user friendly and brought back some much- needed features that weren’t included in the actual game this time around(GTS). But it has little use, at least until they expand the Galar-dex with more Pokémon not already found in-game, or until another Pokémon game for the switch comes out. For now, it does it’s job- if you want to transfer some of your Pokémon from LGPE to SW&SH it works fine and it’s free. If you want to send a few mon’ from Pokébank that you have from the old Pokémon games on the 3ds, that works too... but it’s gonna cost you. *WARNING*: Just know that as of now, you can only bring over the ones that are already in the Galar- dex(with some exception, like the kanto and alolan starters) also, if you bring them to home and they cannot be moved to SW&SH, they will be stuck there for the foreseeable future. *please be aware* ... anyways, decent enough -looking app, glad this new infrastructure is being rolled out early so they can get rid of any bugs sooner rather than later, just doesn't have much use as of now.

  • GTS Needs More Options May 21, 2020

    By InvertedApathy
    I got this app because I’m planning to complete my SwSh pokédex and start shiny hunting, and I was hoping to find people who wanted to trade some version exclusives, along with a foreign Ditto for masuda method breeding. Joining the app, I was really disappointed. The process of transferring the pokes I wanted to offer was fairly simple (if a little clunky due to switching systems), but when it came time to find a trading partner... well. Even with “exclude people searching for legendaries/mythicals” turned on, the pages were flooded with people looking for one-available-per-game unbreedable pokemon like Poipole and the Tapu line. And almost the rest of the time, the pokemon requested was actually impossible like a level 1 Cinderace... or at the very least, it only looks like that, because the app only shows you a small handful of different trade offers with no way to view more offers. (This is also why I have low faith in putting up my own offer, because there’s no way for me to know if anyone is seeing it.) I would greatly appreciate more search filters you could apply when looking at the GTS, like a “only show offers I can fulfill” or an “exclude (x) pokemon”, or even just letting people view ALL offers if they fit the search criteria. If changes that improve the trading process are made I’ll change my review.

  • Just another sign of Pokémon’s Fate Feb 14, 2020

    By runnerboyniwehi
    I downloaded this app like anyone else, expecting something that was actually useful. But I found out otherwise. It only lets you hold up to 30 Pokémon for free, which is almost nothing compared to many trainers’ collections, and you must pay for both Pokémon Bank and Pokémon Home to do anything else. $20 just to put a Pokémon in a game that can’t even transfer it into Sword and Shield? Yeah, no! And then I found out it age-locks you out of most everything. Cant access Mystery Gifts, Friends, or various other features unless you’re over 16. So then, apparently the Pokémon Company thinks that only 16-year-olds have friends or go out. And then, when I tried to contact support, they blew me off and told me to essentially try again when it’s more convenient for them. Unacceptable. This is just a sign as to what’s happening to Pokémon. Rather than care about players, games continue to become pay-to-win, even console games, and the expectation is that you pay for it. You know what? I honestly hope pokemon dies within the next few years. They’re burning out after one failed attempt after another (Pokémon duel, Pokémon Sun and Moon, pokken tournament DX, Pokemon sword and shield, Pokémon masters, and Pokémon home). They deserved a better death than this, and I think that the Galar era just sealed their fate.

  • I lost everything Feb 20, 2020

    By navymn78
    I downloaded the app with a lot of excitement after seeing the features they offer plus the ability to transfer my shiny collection into my pokemon sword game from ultra moon. I was able to successfully transfer about 80 Shiny Pokémon into my Pokémon sword game and the others were left behind as the game does not yet have the ability to hold the others. The day after paying for a year of premium I started experiencing issues with the app that started as my subscription having to be refreshed every time I open the app but was soon met with communication errors. I was not able to renew my subscription and lost about 74 Shiny Pokémon at first and only 30 were left behind. A few days of hoping for an update to fix this, an update came and I was locked out of the app by a constant communication error. I lost shiny Pokémon from the black and white games when I first learned of shiny hunting. I expanded my collection over a 10 year period and now because of their screw up I have now lost over 100 shiny Pokémon and have no way of even opening the app to find a way to fix it. Do not download this app until this problem is fixed I beg of you. If you value your Pokémon collection as much as I did, wait until these problems are fixed or else risk losing everything.

  • A Disappointed Day 1 Premium Subscriber Feb 19, 2020

    By HiBicBoi
    I’ve been a huge supporter of Gamefreak and have stood by them in all their questionable decisions surrounding the Sword & Shield release. This app was supposed to be the saving grace that would finally shut up all the doubters. Unfortunately, the app is riddled with problems and bugs such as not allowing users to log in, missing Pokémon, poorly implemented GTS system allowing impossible requests, and bugs making it impossible to contact customer support in the app (Access Denied?). It’s incredible they had the gall to charge a premium option at all, and I am deeply disappointed I bought a single months worth of it. Maybe in the future when they work the bugs out the premium price will be worth it, but right now, it is not worth your money, and to be honest, the limitations with the free option isn’t even worth the data on your mobile device. The GTS was removed from Sword & Shield to be put in Home, where it could be more easily accessible and convenient on phones, yet previously mentioned bugs make that impossible. In the end, Sword & Shield were gutted for a figurative dish that was given the best ingredients but stored pre-frozen, and served microwaved with half of it still cold.
