    Pokemon HOME (NSW/Android/iOS) - Cloud-Based Service - 2020

    Introducing Pokémon HOME, a cloud service that will work with Nintendo Switch and iOS and Android devices, allowing you to bring over the Pokémon that you’ve shared adventures with throughout your journey.

    Pokémon HOME isn’t tied to a single game system, meaning you can connect with Pokémon Bank, along with #PokemonLetsGo, #PokemonSwordShield, and #PokemonGO. It also features trading functionality.

    Hope it comes with nintendo online and not a separate sub, because paying for that plus bank plus online would be stupid just to transfer pokemon.

    The world of Pokémon games is more diverse than ever, with a range of titles for Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices. Now, Trainers can bring all their Pokémon together with Pokémon HOME, a new cloud service app that enables them to continue their Pokémon adventures beyond a single game system and manage their collection of Pokémon across many of their games. Smartphone users can also trade with friends or others around the world directly from Pokémon HOME. Pokémon HOME connects with Pokémon Bank as well as Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!, the upcoming Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield games, and also Pokémon GO. Pokémon HOME is expected to launch in early 2020 for iOS and Android devices as well as Nintendo Switch.

    Pretty sure a stopwatch from 1973 could hold more than 30 Pokemon's data... man thats funny, but at the same time if I even still played Pokemon, the most amount I've moved from one generation to the other has been like, 4 Shinies and maybe a handful of 5/6 IV's I bred during Black/White era.

    Patch today hides requests for mythical pokemon (since they cannot currently be traded).

    All I see whenever I search for pokemon.
    FF11's version of throwing something on AH for ridiculous price just to show off. Except people seem to do it for pokemon that dont matter, too.

    That was a massively long maintenance time for nothing to show for it. Thought they were implementing something new, or at least fixing something very noticeable. But hey, programming's hard and I know absolutely nothing about it other than that.

    I do wish they'd adjust sprite colors, though. I keep having to ask myself; Is this a shiny?

    The maint was to fix hyper-trained pokemon no longer being hyper-trained when put on Home.

    Uuuuugh. Just spent so much time moving/organizing my boxes on Switch and when I went to save/quit I got "An error occured" and it sent me back to the menu and saved nothing I did. Awesome waste of a half hour.

    I have discovered the problem after painstakingly moving pokemon around and saving frequently;
    Ninjask/Shedinja

    After realizing Shedinja was the 'mon causing the error to get thrown up I looked it up and originally, Home's programming would delete pokemon with identical trainer/tracking #s to get rid of cloned pokemon but because of how nincada evolves, Shedinja/Ninjask have the same ones, it would delete a legit pokemon. Game Freak's solution to this appears to be just not to allow either Ninjask/Shedinja in Home if the same # already exists inside.
    This doesn't affect 'mons transferred from Bank.
