Pokemon Home will soon end support for several older phones and operating systems, The Pokemon Company has announced. Following an update this June, the app will no longer be compatible with the following devices and OSes:
- Android 5
- iOS 9
- iOS 10
- iOS 11
- iPhone 5s
- iPhone 6
As The Pokemon Company notes, “there may be other devices on which Pokemon Home may function imperfectly or stop working entirely” following the June update. According to the company, it may take some time for the service “to become compatible” with newer operating systems.
If you’re planning on using Pokemon Home on a new device, The Pokemon Company advises to link the app to your Nintendo Account in order to carry over all your information. You can check whether your app is already linked to a Nintendo Account by tapping on Options and looking at the Account tab.
