Pokémon Sword and Shield gets 35 new monsters with Pokémon Home

Pokémon Home has officially launched on Nintendo Switch and mobile, allowing players to transfer 35 new monsters into Sword and Shield.  

The Galar Pokedex became an issue with many fans on Sword and Shield’s release, which was originally limited to 400 of the full Pokémon roster. 

The arrival of Pokémon Home, a new storage app which allows you to transfer monsters between games, has bundled some new additions into the mix through trading (via Serebii) – so here’s everything you need to know.

What is this new Professor Oak all about? 

When you boot up Pokémon Home, you’ll be greeted by new meme king Grand Oak – with some troubling mid-life crisis eyewear and Legolas locks. 

It’s unclear if he is a relation to Professor Oak or an aged version – but we’re very concerned either way.  

What is Pokémon Home? 

 Pokemon Home launch

Pokémon Home is a storage app which allows players to move monsters between games and trade them on-the-go. 

While there is a free basic plan, the premium service allows much greater flexibility and storage for your monsters. The premium service costs £2.99 for one month, £4.99 for three months, or £15.99 for 12 months. 

At the moment, you can trade monsters from Pokémon Bank, Pokémon Let’s Go Eevee/Pikachu, and Pokémon Sword and Shield to Pokémon Home. Functionality for Pokémon GO will be added at a later date.  

A whole load more Pokémon is set to be released this year in the Sword and Shield expansion packs, with Pokémon Sleep also set to be released this year.  

You can download the Pokemon Home app from the official website
