Pokemon Home first week downloads reached 1.3m

Sensor Tower: Estimated first week revenue from subscription plans is around $1.8 million

In its first week, Pokemon series companion app Pokemon Home achieved an estimated 1.3 million downloads, and brought in an estimated $1.8 million in revenue, according to Sensor Tower.

Launched on February 12, the Pokemon cloud storage service saw approximately 34% of its total downloads come from the United States, while 23% came from Japan. Great Britain came in third, at 5.7% of all downloads.

Though not itself a game, Pokemon Home is a free app that allows users to store Pokemon from across multiple games in the franchise, transfer them into the latest titles, and obtain other, new Pokemon via in-app rewards. Though its base features are free, it includes a paid subscription that allows for greater storage space and access to more features. The subscriptions cost $2.99 per month, $4.99 for three months, or $15.99 for a full year of the service.
