Pokémon Home was announced Tuesday as a way to keep all the Pokémon a player has caught in a single collection, regardless of device. Here's what we know about it so far.

Pokemon Home: Everything You Need to Know
Pokémon Home will be a cloud-based storage location for all the Pokémon a player has caught across multiple Pokémon titles. The concept is an expansion of Pokémon Bank, a Nintendo 3DS app with a similar concept but limited players to storing Pokémon on their console.
Pokémon Home will let players store Pokémon from Pokémon Go, Pokémon Bank, Let’s Go, Pikachu!, Let’s Go, Eevee! and Pokémon Sword and Shield. Only Sword and Shield, however, will be able to receive Pokémon from Pokémon Home.
Pokémon Bank costs $4.99 a year, but Nintendo has yet to announce a subscription price for Home. Game Freak plans to release the app in early 2020.
