The Pokémon Company has issued a statement regarding their upcoming Pokémon Sword & Shield games and how they will no longer support the Pokémon Global Link:
Good riddance honestly. Did not like using that website.
Same here! I was about to comment that it’s easier that way because it’s a pain in the butt to log in all the time. Plus, you get lost in the site sometimes.
Seriously, why are people downvoting this, omfg?
The Global Link site was a mess, the only reason we had to use it before was because of the DS and 3DS's limited tech. Now it's all done in-game, as it should've been from the beginning. No more registering to an external site and having to link each game and all that tedious stuff.
There are lots of valid aspects to complain about Sword & Shield, but this is an improvement!
I'm assuming the downvote is because of the complains and so unless game freak does something to fix that, it's gonna get all the bashing it can get.
People will downvote anything for a game they look forward to NOT having something, regardless of how necessary or well-liked it actually is.
Though to be honest, I at first read it as "Global Trade Station," and I would've also said "Good riddance" to that due to how chock full of stupid impossible or unreasonable trades it is.
It was nice when you could use that website to win ingame items via Flash games etc. But that feature is long gone anyway.
I'm just concerned they don't mention Home coming to the Switch or 3DS. I wonder how the Bank to Home transfer will happen
Most news from spring report that Home was announced for Switch and Mobile, though I can't seem to find the original press release.
It will likely just be available on smart phones. You'll connect your 3DS/Switch to the app.
I'm growing more and more weary of Pokemon Home
I just want it to have a prettier interface than Bank did so I can feel good about keeping my Living Dex there, since I won't be able to do it in Sword...
