Pokémon Home doesn’t have any gameplay, but it does have some missions that players can complete by storing various Pokémon.

For the Nintendo Switch version of Pokémon Home, players can collect specific Pokémon to fulfill Research Tasks. There are no rewards for completing these tasks, but if you’re itching to complete your Pokédex, this will help you out.

There are currently two sets of Research Tasks available: Kanto tasks for Pokémon Let’s Go, Eevee and Pikachu and Galar tasks for Pokémon Sword and Shield. You will need to import the Pokémon from the specific game to complete that region’s task. Importing a Woobat from Pokémon Bank will not fulfill a Galar-region task that asks you to collect a Woobat.

The mobile version of Pokémon Home has a separate set of tasks, Challenges, that require storing and trading different Pokémon.

At first, only a few tasks for each region will appear, with more unlocking as you complete them. Check out a complete list of tasks below.
