The Pokémon Company has revealed during today's special Pokémon Direct that Pokémon Home – its paid-for replacement for Pokémon Bank – will launch next month.

Pokémon Home is a cloud-based service that will allow you to store and trade applicable 'mon between Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pokémon GO and Pokémon Sword and Shield. Outside of that release window, however, there wasn't much else in the way of solid information.

The other big news from the Direct is that Sword and Shield are getting expansion passes, and over 200 classic monsters will be returning to the series. We'll also be seeing an update of the original Pokémon Mystery Dungeon games early this year.
