So, Pokemon Home has dropped suddenly, with both mobile and Switch flavors. Surprisingly, there are differences. Such as GTS being locked to the mobile version, of all things. It also seems that the mobile version is just plain better for that reason. Fortunately, it seems that the plan is shared between both, so once you sync up your Nintendo account, you should be good to go. Thus far, I haven't exactly been able to do much, as it has crashed on me a few times thus far. Curiously, the mobile version does not force you to read the terms of service, as the switch version does. You have to at least scroll through the entire thing, which includes more languages than English. From the mobile version, I did receive a free Pikachu and, from my choice of three, Bulbasaur out of the original starter trio. The latter came with its hidden ability. With the basic (free) plan, you are unable to: A) Move Pokemon over from Pokemon Bank B) Deposit and store up to 6,000 Pokemon (limit for basic is 30, I believe. One. Single. Box) C) Have up to 10 Pokemon up for trade in your Wonder Box at a time D) Have up to three Pokemon on the GTS at a time E) Create Room Trades F) Gain access to the Judge function (IV Checker) So, already, your incentive would be to buy the premium plan, which you can buy: One month ($2.99), three month ($4.99), and 12 month ($15.99) Honestly, over three times the price of bank for only double the Pokemon storage and a few features that were previously free WITHIN THE GAME ITSELF honestly isn't worth it, in my opinion. Oh, and get this. If you transfer from generation 7, all of your bottle capped stats are reset. You also only get the dex entries for the games that those Pokemon have been physically in themselves, as far back as X and Y, as I can tell. So, your Pokemon has to have physically been in X/Y, traded to ORAS, traded to U/S/M, etc. to get those Pokedex entries.
So, what would you think the anime, manga, and the like will give our new heroes? Personally, I have this (From 20000 names): Male: Lyall (Scottish name for “Shield wolf”, after Norse name Liulfr) Female: Brenda (Scottish name of Scandinavian origin, based on Old Norse brandr, or “Sword”) Male one may just have a British origin, though, to run parallel to the female’s Scottish origin (sorry Wales).
I noticed this a while ago, but from the 0:32 to 0:40 mark on the trailer (they're also barely visible at the 0:55 mark), one of the allied units looked like this: Given the amount of armor they're wearing, I find it hard to tell whether the soldier class will be returning, or if it's a knight that finally has some reasonable looking armor. Considering that in Gaiden/Echoes, the knight class was a promotion of the soldier class, I'm curious if this may be the case in Three Houses. Who knows? Maybe they're a Jeigan unit? Maybe soldiers can decide whether to promote into knights or a different class this time around? Or maybe knights will return, and have the least ridiculous looking design in the series? ... On a somewhat different note, I looked through the entire trailer, and the only character that had a shield was the lady in the beginning. Otherwise, no unit, allied or enemy, on the map, in a cut-scene, or on the battle screen, was wearing a shield. In the past, shields were only cosmetic (except in Gaiden/Echoes, where they were an equipable item, but even then certain classes had shields while holding something else), but I'm curious if this time around, shields will have to be equipped, and if they'll serve a greater function. I could be wrong and they'll appear on the advanced classes, but all the same, it does seem somewhat odd.
