The concept is cool and the yearly fee is low. However, this app in practice is pretty terrible, and it's clear at this point they have no intention of fixing the issues that make using the trading functions frustrating and nearly impossible at this point. The graphics are very dated and the load times are slow compared to modern apps. It's time for an overhaul or to take out the yearly fee. Tbh if they had programmed the new games to support all pokemon, I wouldn't be bothering with home.

Great but with ONE ANNOYING ISSUE. This may be a small issue for some, but as someone who likes to watch videos while using pokemon home, or sometimes uses it at work or at night, I like to make sure the sound in the app is off. However, even with the music and sound effect volume all the way off, when receiving pokemon in a trade, the loud, shrill twinkling sound effect still plays at full volume. What is the point of the sound effect volume options if they don't work for everything?

I like the app, it's easy to use and serves a very good purpose, but it freezes very frequently. Sometimes I have to reopen it several times in one session. It makes me nervous to transfer Pokemon to it sometimes because I worry if it crashes while I'm transferring it may corrupt my data. I also do not like how limited the free options are. Only 6 Pokemon are able to be stored in the free version, and thousands in the expencive subscription. Seems like a big difference.
