The mobile apps for Pokémon Home, a cloud-based storage service, has generated 1.3 million downloads in its first week of availability, reveals Sensor Tower’s Store Intelligence data. Pokémon Home was released worldwide on February 12, 2020.
Of these downloads, 444,000 downloads of total installs were from users in the U.S., 299,000 from Japan, 74,000 from Great Britain, 63,000 from Germany and 53,000 from France.
For those unaware, Pokémon Home allows two-way transfer to and from the Pokémon Storage System in Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee! and Pokémon Sword and Shield using the Nintendo Switch version.
Only Pokémon that can be obtained in Sword and Shield can be transferred to those games, and only Pokémon originally caught in Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee! can be transferred to those games.
Any Pokémon transferred to Sword and Shield cannot be transferred to Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee!
It also allows one-way transfer of Pokémon from the Nintendo 3DS core series games through Pokémon Bank using either version with a Premium Plan. One-way transfers from Pokémon GO will be made available in the future.
With the free version, you can deposit 30 Pokémon, but you can increase it to 6,000 Pokémon with a Premium Plan. The Judge function is available in either version with a Premium Plan.
While the app with base features is available for free on the Nintendo Switch, iOS devices, and Android devices, users need to pay for a subscription plan to get greater storage space and access to more features.
The Premium Pokémon Home subscriptions, which costs $2.99 for a month, $4.99 for three months, or $15.99 for a year, has earned its parent company an estimated revenue of $1.8 million in user spendings.
