Can’t trade with friends???? 2/5
By Fytnsu fan
What’s the point if I can’t trade unless I’m close to them?????? Why is there no way to do a 1 for 1 trade to a friend online?????
Error code.... messing with my premium 3/5
Well i hasn’t had any issues until today, the app
Is stating that i only have a basic plan when i payed for the 12 month premium.... when i try to restore purchase it just gives me a error code 500 and a daily code of 10303
Need this fixed
Trading is seemingly broken on purpose. 1/5
The app description lies. You cannot trade with people around the world when you want. At least, you can’t trade with your friends. That functionality is GPS limited, and won’t even let me trade with friends who live in the same city, county, or state.
Making matters more complicated, I can’t find official materials that describe how close you have to be to make it happen. And of course none of the promotional material tells you the exact nature of the limitations on trading.
Don’t fall for this 1/5
This isn’t a Pokémon game
Let me save you some time by explaining what features this actually offers:
•extremely restrictive trading( including actively removing Pokémon from the trade-able list as they please)
•a subscription service that gives you access to functions that use to be part of the games at launch(and from what I’ve heard and experience either doesn’t work or just straight up gives you nothing)
•if you want real access to all of your Pokémon you will need to have two different versions of the app open because for some reason the switch app and phone app are COMPLETELY DIFFERENT(idk what nonsense you have to go through for the DS games)
Game freak and Nintendo used to bring me so much joy, I have played every main story game but now.... every time I see something new from you is makes me sad
Oh and they seem to be editing out negative reviews idk if they can but my last review(made not long after launch) is gone
Unpromised rewards 1/5
Look I get that Pokémon home is a new tool for people to use for transferring Pokémon but saying that you will get a prize for completing the entire Pokédex as in all 890+ and then not delivering that reward is not only mean but completely unprofessional for any reason ,especially since some people claim to have gotten this reward.nintendo/Pokémon company needs to fix this, solve this issue and DO RIGHT BY YOUR PAID SUBSCRIBERS
Frustrating to do simple things 3/5
It’s nigh impossible to figure out how to sign out and sign in for your kids account. I had to delete the app and reinstall it just to SIGN... OUT.
Fix it having a bad communication error
needs 4 little GTS changes 3/5
In the GTS trade, you can search for Pokémon just fine, but seriously, you can get ANYTHING with Poipole. Make an option to exclude asks for Ultra Beasts and mythical Pokémon, PLEASE. Also, I would much enjoy the ability to search for Pokémon that others want to receive; this way, it's a win-win, because I would be trading a Pokémon that I want to trade out for a Pokémon that others want to trade out, and it goes much quicker!
Lastly, the forms. Seriously, separate the forms. People are posting Oricorio and asking for Oricorio in return, and traders have no clue which form is being requested. Same for regional forms. They have different sprites, but not different names.
There is a problem that users are taking advantage of: Traders can request Pokémon that cannot be legally obtained, except maybe with a Ditto. For example: low-level fully evolved starters of the rarer gender, Poipole at levels below 40, etc.
By Hannah Kay Marler
Please add a way to report Pokémon on the GTS. There are still people trolling (example: wanting level 51-60 Necrozma or 1-10 Naganadel)
Also, you should add a button that lets you choose if you want a Pokémon to be shiny for the Pokémon you put on the GTS. Should be easy, just a simple button that says “Shiny: Yes/No”
That’s all my suggestions... wonder box still takes too long.
Great start 5/5
Great start with this app. Love that GTS is a feature I can now access on my phone. Can’t wait to see more from you guys!
Love the idea, however 4/5
First of love the idea and i like the app. But the app has a lot of flaws. Theres no way to communicate with someone, in a free trade room u should be able to click on a Pokémon and see its name. For example I've never played sun and moon so i have no idea what Pokémon someone is offering if its from sun and moon i cant tell if its good or bad. Also u should be able to go on to GTS and in addition to searching for a pokemon U want u should be able to search for a pokemon that someone else wants that way it will make trading a much easier and simpler process. Im aware that this is a fairly new app and that changes and updates will be made so i hope to see improvement and growth in future updates.
I wish I could give it 5 stars but 2/5
It has one serious gleaming problem, GTS has too many illegal trade request, time after time I’ve seen people asking for 3rd stage Pokémon that require hacking to get like a level 10 Inteleon, Rillaboom, Dragapult, Poipole, etc.
I like the premise but the amount of people requesting illegal moms is astronomical and sad
Good App, Needs Go 3/5
By So Banders
The app is great. I can easily trade Pokémon which is a major plus. I have been able to get alola starters from others without having to buy sun and moon ( and a ds for that matter). I only hope that I will eventually be able to transfer Pokemon from GO to Sword and Shield. Thanks!
Amazing App, one major flaw. 4/5
This app is great and I really recommend it. The GTS is good, and lots of other stuff! There is one major flaw though: The unfair GTS trades. People are trading litten for ARCEUS!! Please stop this. Make it so that you can only trade legends or pseudo legends for other legends. Other than that, this app is great!
We Need It 4/5
So let’s talk, and this my opinion. Pokemon Home is a great app or software using it to transfer Pokémon from let’s go and sword and shield but we need Pokémon Go on it, and really I love to complete the Pokédex, but I know that it would sound like cheating. So just allow us to transfer some Pokémon from let’s go and sword and shield.
we need it.......
Can you do this?! 4/5
Hello! So, I’m here to discuss the elephant in the room. You can’t transfer Pokémon to Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee! I wanted to send over a charizard, but this app won’t let me! Can you please make it so that we can transfer Pokémon to these games?
GTS is still flawed 4/5
Don’t get me wrong I love Pokémon home and I have paid for the year long premium but the Global Trade System still has the issue of illegitimate Pokémon being asked for and it floods the GTS. There should not be people asking for a level 10 kyurem or a level 1 ursaring because you can’t get it legally in game at that level and you can’t make a Pokémon level down; I understand it might be harder work to implement but there should be minimum levels for evolved and legendary Pokémon.
Needs battles 1/5
What’s the point of Pokémon without battles? This game’s boring and adding an active online pvp or pve battle system would help this game rise in popularity
The code mystery gift option disappeared 1/5
I wanted to enter in codes for mystery gifts. When I first downloaded the app, I had more than one option to receive mystery gifts. But then I got an error message when allowing the app to access my location. I closed and reopened the app, and now two of the three mystery gift options are gone.
Needs more filters 1/5
Desperately needs a filter during GTS to show Pokemon you have that can be traded. List of Pokémon wanted are always legendary
Worked (mostly) fine before maintenance, but now crashes repeatedly. I’m lucky if I have enough time to deposit a Pokémon in the GTS. I can barely look at Pokémon if I search for them.
Doesn’t let me add friends 4/5
It doesn’t let me add friends and this has happened since launch
Unable to use 2/5
I just downloaded the app, tried to link my account for my switch and it gives me the “temporarily unable to connect as another device is currently using Pokémon home” although my switch had a different app running/was in sleep mode. Effectively I’m unable to use the mobile app.
Worthless for trading 1/5
GTS is a joke. Cannot ask for specific nature and is apparently only for trading for Zacian or Zamazenta. This coming after you announce you’re taking a page from EA and charging for expansions.
Seems good but have issues 3/5
I had seem other people using this App and it seems really great for some reason i can’t connect my Nintendo account to Pokémon HOME and i know in not the only one with this issue, so please try to solve this problem
Clunky and disappointing 2/5
Gts is still an utter mess with people requesting legendary Pokémon for pidgey or Pokémon that can’t be traded over the gts at all (why even give an option to request them in the first place?). Friend trade also requires you to be close to the person you’re trading with which is really stupid.
No more hacked trades 4/5
Listen this game is great in all but the thing that bothers me is the hacked wanted Pokemon in the gts system.because I had a Lv 35 inteleon I wanted to give away for necrozma cause it said any lv wanted so I got it out of sword and when I got back it was wanted lv 10. You guys need to make evolution eggs hatch or stop the hacked trading if you could that would be appreciated by me and a whole bunch of other people
So it’s just storage? 1/5
This app is awful. The GTS is basically useless since the only Pokémon that pop up are impossible to satisfy. I can’t specify shiny or not. I can’t specify and say I have this Pokémon what can I get for it? The paid feature to create rooms is also useless because the searching program they use is trash. Great for storage though?
Awful app 1/5
GTS is flooded with impossible trades - ex level 1 Dragapult
Trading with friends is GPS based so online trades aren’t possible
Trade rooms disconnect every time
Game Freak has charged players for an incomplete and pathetic app, considering how much money they make.
How is there no option to see who is requesting the Pokémon you want to trade? How is it possible to ask for a level 10 Emboar?
And to top it all off, if the subscription lapses, Pokémon are deleted. What if some Pokémon aren’t in a game for the next decade?
Pretty good 4/5
I love the way you can transfer Pokémon across games but I hate that you can’t transfer straight from Pokémon go on your phone
Can’t sign into my Nintendo account 1/5
Haven’t been able to figure out why I can’t sign into my Nintendo account through this app. I just get an communication error every time I try to sign in.
Impossible trades 4/5
By defanliy not a real review
U might have fixed that it’s a great app but I was looking for a Lunala and a trade said for a l level 10 meowstic and I don’t think u can get a level 10 meowstic
By REMOTSUC YRGNA NA
PLEASE note that this app has an age restriction for children under the age of 16. The app doesn’t clarify that, which means that after purchasing the premium pass, children will still be unable to trade. I made that mistake and am very upset about this...
PLEASE FIX THIS
Doesn’t Meet Expectations 2/5
Home, so far, fulfills its purpose of storage very well. I got the app after it updated several bugs, and have had no grievances in migrating and storing my Pokémon. However, after storage, completing some minor tasks, reading a few dex entries, and maybe decorating your sticker board, there is nothing else to come back to on Mobile or Switch — save for the occasional wonder box or GTS trade.
Paying for such an empty service seems a bit of a misstep, but you may find it a necessary evil if you’re a competitive or meta player. There are still several QoL issues within the app that haven’t been properly addressed, and I personally have had trouble contacting support for glitches I’ve experienced.
My biggest grievance is that the “friends” option is inaccessible on my mobile version — even though I’m a premium user with a birthdate from the 1990s. A canned email I received simply directs me to an FAQ which doesn’t address the glitch.
There is further no direct trading available for friends or with using QR. The existing methods requires in-person interaction or changing it on the GTS — which is STILL cluttered with impossible requests.
The app between switch and mobile feels a bit like a vacuum — there’s not much of anything to explore. I wish there were mini games to maybe interact with other players, receive rare items, or even to virtually play with Pokémon that cannot be transferred in-game.
Something extra would just be nice.
It take forever to sort Pokémon. Need auto sorting features.
Trading so glitchy is almost impossible 2/5
Its great in theory and storage and swap between other games works. But trading is so glitchy I got kicked out 6 times in a row trying to trade with a person in a trade room.
Trading seems unfair 4/5
This app is fantastic but man is it hard to trade fairly. Not sure how this problem is resolved, but people ask for ridiculous trades like a charmander for a Mewtwo. It’s seems like a daunting task to complete my Pokédex because no one will trade fairly.
Great trading game but can you add for gts mitacals and lengendery 5/5
By Ok Trya
This is a great game but I want to trade everyone keeps one on putting on gts mit and lengends in gts but we cannot trade them
I can’t even create an account how is this sopose to be helpful when you can’t even start it every time I enter a name it says there is an error on the company side
Great app, just a small problem.. 4/5
By Hg gjhvutkf
Why do we have to transfer pokemon go pokemon to pokemon lets go just to get them into this app?
I have a shiny pikachu in pokemon go, that I just can’t use.
The update 1/5
The newest update won’t let me in it says code 8807 I need help
Can’t trade with friends 1/5
You have to physically live close to someone which wasn’t advertised. Any friends that have moved away or off at work you can’t trade with. The trade distance is the worst part of this app. What’s the point of trading if you have to be close by.
It's awesome, but.... 4/5
By Wolf of Flame
The app works great. I really haven't had any issues with it at all. There are a couple of things that are annoying though.
Primarily the GTS. There has been a problem with it that has existed ever since its debut in Diamond and Pearl, which is the fact that you can ask for any Pokémon in the PokéDex, but you can't actually trade every Pokémon. You have the Gift Pokémon for collecting all 890 Pokémon; however, with a lot of players just starting out with Sword, Shield, Let's Go Pikachu, and Let's Go Eevee, not everyone has the same access to some Pokémon. For example, the Mythical Pokémon that are only distributed by Event: Genesect, Diancie, and Zeraora to name a few recent ones. In fact, no Pokémon in the special event only Cherish Ball can be traded at all. "This is a Special Pokémon and therefore cannot be traded."
Because of this, the filter for Legendaries and Mythicals was added, yes, but that filter does not solve the issue. People around the world are still able to put up Pidgey, Rattata and other such Pokémon and request Celebi, Keldeo, and Jirachi and other untradeable Mythicals. I'm all for allowing people to ask for Mythicals, but if I actually would want to trade a Volcanion for a Dialga or want to put up an Arceus for trade on the GTS, I should be able to without being stopped. Now I can see having a confirmation popup asking if I'm sure I want to trade the "Special Pokémon," but outright stopping it? No. That defeats the purpose entirely.
Secondly, that there is no option to sort by Box Order in the app. It doesn't even default to being in Box Order. It just defaults to whatever order the Pokémon were put into the program. I personally have organized my Boxes by National PokéDex Number and have separated out the various teams that I have used over the past few generations and some select Pokémon that I have had since the Third Generation (Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Fire Red, and Leaf Green). I just don't like seeing all of that hard work go to waste in the phone app. However, that's just a minor thing compared to my issue with the GTS.
Fix that major GTS issue and I'll happily give a five star rating, but until then, we'll both just have to settle for four stars.
This is such a good game the trading feature is the best so now I can complete my Galar dex
Good but some features don’t work 4/5
I love the many features in this app but one thing I have noticed is that friend trade doesn’t work. Even after the update I still can’t use it. Also I really wish you could take Pokémon back to bank because i am currently playing ultra sun and would like some of my Pokémon from sword to help me through the game. Aside from those 2 things I love this app
Laggy, low resolution, slow all around 2/5
I would have given this a 5 star if they released it as a beta or even an alpha build but as it stands the app feels super unrefined, and the crazy thing is they're asking money! Now yes, I have paid for their membership because I really wanted to get all of my Pokémon from Pokémon bank while it was free.
It’s just odd - there are music and sound effect settings but if you turn them off the loud / annoying alien sound effect that plays when you receive a Pokémon from wonderbox proceeds to play. It’s such a gross sound effect, and there’s no way to turn it off which just makes me think the beta testers are bad at their job. In addition, the pokeball for the Pokémon you receive is super blurry / low res. It looks bad. The app is slow to boot which makes zero sense - it should be fairly lightweight. All a Pokémon is is a bit of binary code.
Organizing Pokémon doesn’t feel very robust. Please make this app snappier. I question if this was a super bad port from an android build.
Also sad there’s no pokemon go capability despite announcing there would be. There is no set date for when or if it’ll get added. Knowing Nintendo it could be 12 months, or never.

Pokémon home is so good I love this game
