Since Pokémon HOME was released, there were many conflicting reports of a gift when you complete the National Pokédex with many not receiving any and others receiving glitched ones with the wrong moves. Over the last day, more people have been reporting receving a new gift. This gift is of an Original Color Magearna, a form of Magearna based on its look hundreds of years ago, previously only seen in Pokémon the Movie Volcanion & The Mechanical Marvel. At present, the gift isn't being given to all people with a completed Pokédex and appears to be a staggered launch.

As seen before, the game has boxes, specifically 200 boxes of storage in the Premium Subscription and transfer between the main games can be done by dragging and dropping. You also have the ability to search your boxes based on various criterea and order. Eggs cannot be placed in Pokémon HOME and Pokémon from Let's Go Pikachu/Let's Go Eevee only gain their data such as abilities when transferred into Sword & Shield.
The GTS will allow you to see from where the Pokémon originates. If it has been put in from Bank, Let's Go or Sword/Shield.
The mobile version lets you see the 3D Models, rotate them and so forth
The National Pokédex is separated by region so you can look at all Pokémon at once, or get a list of all Kanto Pokémon, Johto Pokémon etc.
According to 4Gamer, If you have multiple user accounts on the same Nintendo Switch, you have the ability to access the different save files in one copy of HOME as long as they are on the same Switch, but we are currently hunting for further clarification on this.

Pokémon HOME

The Japanese Pokémon HOME FAQ has updated with some further clarifications about Pokémon HOME.
First, you don't need a Nintendo Account to run the mobile version of the app. You can connect it to your account at any time. Without a Nintendo Account connected, you won't be able to share data with the Nintendo Switch version, transfer from Pokémon Bank using the Nintendo Network ID method (Premium Subscriptions only), checking Nintendo Switch Battle Data or transferring the Pokémon HOME data to another phone.
Some further clarifications were given as to what happens when your subscription lapses. The game itself has a Free Box, this box allows for you to transfer from Let's Go, Sword & Shield or receive Mystery Gifts without the Premium Plan, and then it has more boxes for the Premium Plan users. If your plan lapses and you have space in the Free Box, you will not be able to move Pokémon from Premium Boxes until you have renewed your Premium Subscription.
