Your Pokémon Home account can contain your Pokémon from old games and bring them over into new ones. You can use it to connect to your Pokémon Bank, Pokémon GoPokémon Sword, and Shield, and Pokémon Let’s Go Eevee and Let’s Go Pikachu. You can even trade Pokémon with your friends from the mobile application. There’s the option to purchase a premium version, and if you do, the Pokémon Home application can judge your Pokémon.

Before you have the option to have your Pokémon judged, you need to purchase the premium version of Pokémon Home. You can do so through the mobile application on an iOS or Android device, or the Nintendo eShop from your Nintendo Switch. You have three choices to pick from.

  • One month: $2.99
  • Three months: $4.99
  • 12 months: $15.99

After you submit your payment information for the service, you should receive all of the perks of having access to Pokémon HOME’s premium functions.

Now, to judge your Pokémon, you need to go to your Pokémon collection. You can do this on the main page of both the Pokémon Home applications. When you reach the page for your Pokémon Home boxes, highlight a Pokémon you want to judge. When you have it highlighted, click on it and select to check a summary. The summary gives you a detailed breakdown of the Pokémon, showing you all their stats, gender, level, the moves they know, their nature, and much more. In the upper left section, you should see the judge function. Choose this, and the Pokémon Home application will judge their overall quality.

For Pokémon collectors who are on the hunt for the best Pokémon, this makes finding those high quality significantly easier. Now, you can have any Pokémon in any Pokémon game judged and immediately know how good they are so you can add them to your favorite Pokémon if they’re available in it.
