THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME
Dorothy and Toto sure would be proud! All ancient move references aside, the Pokémon HOME event sure does pack a lot of features! There is seemingly something for everyone, regardless of playstyle.
Remember Trainers, abide by your local health and safety guidelines, socially distance, and stay safe out there!
