Update: Pokemon HOME is now available on Android and iOS, links in the article.

Two weeks ago, The Pok√©mon Company announced that Pok√©mon HOME ‚ÄĒ the unifying online transfer and storage system for Pok√©mon Sword and Shield ‚ÄĒ would be launching sometime in February. Today is that day.

Pok√©mon HOME has now launched worldwide on the Nintendo Switch, with mobile apps expected to go live shortly. There’s a few differences between the two versions; the Switch app is purely for moving Pok√©mon around, and it doesn’t have any other fancy features, while the mobile version features a whole bunch of cool stuff, like the Global Trade Station, Room Trade (which is like a 20-person Surprise Trade), trading with friends, redeeming Mystery Gift codes, and so much more. Check out our overview article for more info.
