Great! But needs one or two features

This game is great it has many features that I have always wanted for Pokémon sword and shield but it is lacking some, such as the feature on the GTS where there is a setting where it filters the Pokémon you are searching for four people asking for Pokémon that you have. This is an excellent feature and I am surprised it is not added in Pokémon HOME. Also it would be great if we had some sort of way to battle, maybe on the switch version it would be better than the mobile version but still nonetheless we need a way to battle, especially since on the news category it says battle as a category. Overall this is a great game but there is one more thing I would like to see in it. There should be more boxes in the basic plan of the version one box really isn’t going to help people who want to save money but like to play Pokémon, especially if they might be shiny hunters or they just need extra space in their boxes. Also, people should not be able to make a possible trades such as dittos with genders or legendary Pokémon with genders which there is no way that anybody can trade unless it is hacked. These trades generally annoy me because this is people just taunting others. I’d like to see your future that removes the capability of making any sort of impossible trade.

I love this app how it can transfer Pokémon to and from games and I think once it gets updated more it will just keep getting better. :3

Great app bad specs

Pokémon home is awesome but Pokémon Co. I hope you’re reading this and take this I to consideration. 1. The world of Pokémon trading is amazing and very vast but your program has a major flaw and that is communication. If I trade with a random person across the world I should be able to speak to them also. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve found someone to trade with and then it ended up being a waste of both our time just because we can’t communicate. If I could talk to the other person I’m trading with things would be much better think about that for your next game please. Secondly there’s over a 1000 Pokémon in the Pokémon universe currently for you to limit that in the year 2020 and only allow us to explore one region is ridiculous the games would be more fun and more exciting if every single Pokémon from Kanto to Galar region were available on every game from now on including being able to travel to different regions the game itself would be extremely popular and more challenging to someone who’s been playing Pokémon since they were 10. Finally Pokémon home has not allowed me to friend trade at all not sure what’s going on with that buts there’s been several updates and bug fixes still not working.

Beautiful App - Trolls clog the trades

The layout and presentation of Pokémon Home is superb and eye catching. It has most features you desire. It lacks some as well. When trading Pokémon, you are presented with a list of Pokémon that the person wants and you have. The issue is that you don’t know at first glance which Pokémon are from which box. You may accidentally trade a Pokémon you want to keep instead of the duplicates you don’t want because you can’t lock Pokémon from being traded either. This is also assuming you can trade with others to begin with.

The biggest issue with Pokémon Home is one that has been plaguing the Pokémon trading scene for years. Impossible trade requests. Anyone can put their Pokémon up for trade and request something impossible. They can request Pokémon that can never be in a certain level range or even ask for Pokémon with a gender that is also unavailable to that Pokémon! And if you’re feeling bold, why not do both at once? Every single lookup of a Pokémon you might want is filled with impossible requests, pushing the legitimate ones to the wayside and out of sight.

My recommendation at this time is to only use Home for organization of your Pokémon and forget using the trading feature... which is sad because that is in direct opposition of the whole idea behind the Pokémon games to begin with!
