  Pokémon Home launches, introduces a new Professor Oak!
Posted by: Avia - Feb 11, 2020 9:57 PM - Replies (5)

[Image: Screen_Shot_2020_02_11_at_8.35.30_PM.0.png]

Pokémon Home, the cloud service app that allows trainers to store monsters for easier transfers across titles, is now live on the Nintendo Switch eShop. Beyond utility, there’s good reason to use the service — Home on console gifts all players a Pikachu. The mobile version, which is also now live, lets players choose between Charmander, Squirtle, and Bulbasaur. The Kanto starter you pick on mobile will come with a hidden ability.

The app also introduces fans to a new version of Professor Oak. This one has long hair and has funky glasses and is called Grand Oak. Previously, Game Freak included Professor Oak’s cousin in Pokémon Sun and Moon, and while they weren’t the same character, everyone referred to him as “Alolan Oak.”

Pokémon Home allows players to import monsters from Pokémon Sword and Shield, Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu, Pokémon Go, and Pokémon Bank. These creatures, in turn, can then be brought into Pokémon Sword and Shield — meaning that the Pokédex, which was previously limited, has now expanded. This should make lots of Dexit people who criticized the smaller compendium in the Nintendo Switch games much happier.

Players can enroll into a Premium Plan, which costs money depending on how long you want a subscription. Thirty days costs $2.99, 90 days costs $4.99, while a year costs $15.99. Premium Plans allow users to store up to 6,000 Pokémon, while also gaining access to other features, such as a service that tells you how strong your monsters are. The basic plan, which is free to everyone, allows the storage of up to 30 monsters.

Now that the feature is live, players have access to 35 new monsters in Sword and Shield, including previous starters such as Bulbasaur, Squirtle, and Charmander. The full list can be viewed here.

Update: Pokémon Home is now available for download on iOS and Android.

I'll be preparing clones to move from Bank to Home :)

I'm all for giving away clone freebies!

  Pokémon Home cloud storage service will launch in February for $3 a month
Posted by: Avia - Jan 28, 2020 5:49 PM - Replies (2)

https://www.theverge.com/2020/1/28/21111...-shield-go

The Pokémon Company is making it easier for players to keep all of their pokémon from every game in one place with a cloud storage service known as the Pokémon Home. The tool will launch in February.

Details about how Home will work were released in a new blog post from the company today. Essentially, people can use their phones and mobile devices to store pokémon from the old Pokémon Bank and transfer them into Pokémon Switch games as long as those pokémon are supported in the newer games. Support for Pokémon Go is in development. There is also a version of Pokémon Home that lives on the Nintendo Switch, but it will only support Switch games including Pokémon Sword, Pokémon Shield, Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu!, and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!. Beware, though: once a pokémon is transferred to the bank and into another game, it cannot be transferred back.

Although Pokémon Home will be free to all players for the first month, the premium plan is what Nintendo is trying to sell. Customers who choose to use the basic, free version of Home won’t be able to transfer pokémon from the Bank system. That means players with pokémon from 3DS games won’t be able to bring those over to Switch titles. Free versions will only allow 30 pokémon to be deposited to Home, while the premium version expands to 6,000. Having a basic plan effectively changes how trading works within Home, too. The company will charge mobile users $2.99 a month, $4.99 for three months, or $15.99 for a year of support. More information is in the graph below.

So, how does it work? Players can use Pokémon Home to trade pokémon in four different ways. Pokémon that are placed in the “Wonder Box” can be traded worldwide. These pokémon will be traded even when Pokémon Home isn’t being used. The “Global Trade System” allows players to identify specific pokémon they want to trade and receive. These players will be matched with others who meet the criteria of their search. “Room Trade” allows players to create a room and trade with others who join. There’s a limit of 20 people per room, and while the trading has no cost, players will only be able to create a room if they’re paying for the premium plan. Finally, “Friend Trade” will let players trade with nearby users who are registered as friends in Pokémon Home.

There are some additional features that accompany Home. Pokémon deposited in Home will be registered to the National Pokédex. Mystery Gifts for Home and Pokémon Sword and Shield can be received in the mobile version of Home. Premium customers can use a feature called “Judge,” which allows them to see how strong their pokémon are, and mobile users will get updates and news via the Home app.

The Pokémon Company doesn’t have a specific launch date for Home, but keep an eye out for more details soon.

I'm not so bothered by the price, it's just kinda of underwhelming. For that price, I expect it to hold like 50,000 - 100,000 Pokemon. Not just 6,000.

  Pokémon Go’s first 2020 Community Day features Piplup!
Posted by: Avia - Jan 08, 2020 7:48 PM - No Replies

Pokémon Go’s January 2020 Community Day will feature Piplup, the adorable penguin water-type Pokémon.

The Community Day will take place on Sunday, Jan. 19, but the event time will be different depending on which hemisphere you live in, which is a first for the game. Players in the Northern Hemisphere will have their event active from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. in their local time, and players in the Southern Hemisphere will have their event from 3 p.m. until 6 p.m. in their local time.

During this event, Piplup will be spawning in large numbers, with a high chance to find it Shiny.

The special Community Day move for Piplup has yet to be officially announced, but it’s pretty safe to say it’s going to be Hydro Cannon, like all the other water-type starter Pokémon. Evolving Piplup into its final evolution, Empoleon, during the event period will give it this powerful move. This is a great move on Empoleon, making it a strong water-type attacker, only behind Kingler, Kyogre, and Swampert.

All eggs put into Incubators during the event period will also hatch four times faster than usual. As with all other Community Days, Lures will also last for three hours.

  Pokémon Go Adventure Sync Hatchathon event guide: bonuses and special Pokémon!
Posted by: Avia - Jan 03, 2020 1:35 PM - No Replies

https://www.polygon.com/pokemon-go-guide...-party-hat

Pokémon Go is having its Adventure Sync Hatchathon to celebrate the new year until Jan 16 at 4 p.m. ET, encouraging players to walk around and hatch some eggs.

There’s doubled Stardust and candy from hatching eggs, as well as bonuses for any players who walk a whopping 50 kilometers this week. If you manage this feat, you’ll get 50,000 Stardust, 15 Rare Candies, and a Unova Stone.

Pichu and Pikachu with party hats return for the event, with Pichu only being able to be hatched from two and seven kilometer eggs, and Pikachu spawning in the wild. Party hat-wearing Raticate, Wobbuffet, and Wurmple are making their first-ever appearance, with Raticate and Wobbuffet showing up in raids and Wurmple hatching out of two kilometer eggs. Players can also get a Raichu with a party hat, though you’ll have to evolve your party hat Pikachu.

All of these party Pokémon are also available to find Shiny, if you’re lucky.
