  • Can’t sign into my Nintendo account

    By PapabearWL
    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

    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

    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

    By kazemirage
    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.
  • I just want 3 little features

    By OPStellar
    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.
  • Sorting

    By TfarkNivad
    It take forever to sort Pokémon. Need auto sorting features.
  • Trading so glitchy is almost impossible

    By Izzy5463
    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

    By Whejskdj
    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

    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
