Pokemon Home, the latest portable Pokemon game in the franchise has reached a new milestone in its first week. According to the popular analysis company Sensor Tower, the game has been downloaded 1.3 million times and brought an estimated 1.8 million dollars in revenue.
United States players love it
Pokemon Home launched on 12 February. In the first seven days the game has been downloaded 444,000 times from mobile players in the United States, which makes about 34 percent of total installs. Japan comes in second place after the US with approximately 299,000, or 23 percent of all downloads. Great Britain followed with a 5.7 percent share comprising 74,000 of the total. The last two countries that made the list are Germany and France with 63,000 and 53,000 downloads respectively.
The game offers three different subscription plans priced at $2.99, $4.99 and $15.99 which draws an estimated $1.8 million in user spending so far. The interesting part is that it represents 94.7 percent of the publisher’s mobile revenue since February 12. That’s if we don’t include Niantic’s Pokemon GO’s revenue.
What is Pokemon Home?
Pokémon HOME is the new Pokémon storage solution introduced in 2020 and intended to pave the way forward with Pokémon connectivity for future games. It is releasing on Nintendo Switch, iOS, and Android devices. The game is a cloud-based system that allows players to connect with all Pokémon games. This includes the Nintendo 3DS games through Pokémon Bank, Pokémon GO, Pokémon Let’s Go, Pikachu & Let’s Go, Eevee and Pokémon Sword & Shield allowing for players to store all their Pokémon in one place.
Although the utility connects with all the games, the connections with Pokémon Bank, Pokémon GO and Pokémon Let’s Go, Pikachu! & Let’s Go, Eevee! are only one way. Once you put a Pokémon from these games into Pokémon HOME, you won’t be able to put any into those games from HOME. Pokémon Sword & Shield, however, can both deposit and withdraw Pokémon from Pokemon HOME.
